As we hadn’t had lunch yet, we decided to order two sets of 金鐘店限定丸十茶香飯糰套餐, which was the only more lunch-like food to order at this place.

These were two sets of 金鐘店限定丸十茶香飯糰套餐, each including an onigiri, a miso soup, a mini matcha jelly, and a freshly brewed Japanese tea.

We tried both 梅子昆布碾茶海苔飯糰and藤吉煎茶山椒魚乾海苔飯糰。The former was pretty tasteless while the latter was slightly better but still quite tasteless. They totally lacked good smell of tea. In short, don't try!

It looked pretty appealing! But again it was pretty tasteless, not much miso flavour at all. The green stuff didn't taste matcha at all (not that I expected them to do so). In short, don't try!

This one had a stronger flavour, but still lacked sufficient miso flavour.

A tea blend available only at this restaurant. They blended seven types of Japanese green tea, including 煎茶 and 玉露 by their secret ratios. The aroma was supposed to be smooth and unique. It tasted pretty fresh like green tea. But it was quite bitter towards the end.

Roasted at a high temperature, this tea was made of leaves and stems of sencha. The tea's bitterness was largely subtracted by roasting at high temp. The aroma was supposed to be delicate and refreshing. I found this one better than the other, smelling so good and less bitter!

Really so mini than expected. The matcha jelly was so smooth with a slight matcha taste which was just right and not bitter at all. The red bean paste was so yummy and the level of sweetness went along well with the matcha jelly. The rice ball was chewy but nothing very special.

The main purpose of our visit was the soft cream so we couldn’t help but order two separate portions. There were quite some choices of toppings too.

The soft cream was of course very smooth. However, the matcha cream tasted way better than hojicha cream when they were served together. The matcha cream tasted pretty strong in matcha while the hojicha flavour was masked. The waffle was crispy but again tasted not so strong in hojicha flavour. Matcha waffle tasted much better. The red bean paste was good as always while the genmai was not crispy at all and the matcha chocolate didn't offer much matcha flavour. Overall, the toppings were quite disappointing.

As mentioned, the matcha waffle tasted strong in matcha flavour, better than the hojicha waffle. The matcha powder tasted good too, seemingly better than the hojicha powder. 

In general, I think the 辻利 soft cream in Tokyo we ate tasted much better! This one was a no-need-to-try-again!

In short, matcha desserts were good but not hojicha desserts. Other foodstuff was in general subpar and didn’t really worth a try. I personally found 辻利 offering foodstuff of better quality in general. I wouldn’t go back again to try other products here. In addition, the staff was not so friendly or helpful despite the lack of queues on the day we went. Better services were expected given the price range of their products.
