Nakamura Tokichi Hong Kong – Fall in love with Matcha

。中村藤吉香港店 – 延續抹茶熱。

「抹茶控」不會不認識中村藤吉這個名字,香港店上月在尖沙咀人氣商場開幕了,排隊人潮不斷。感激公關邀請,有機會到店內一試各款人氣之選。店內佈置相當嚴謹,連檯墊也是從日本運到港,其顏色之鮮豔吸引極了。

All Matcha lovers would certainly recognize and understand the name of Nakamura Tokichi from Kyoto. Its Hong Kong shop has finally landed at The ONE, Tsim Sha Tsui and created massive crowd to line up every day. So glad to be invited by the PR and got to try the signature items at HK shop. The first impression, while I walked into the restaurant, was the delicate decoration and the preciseness of the materials. Most of the materials, such as the table mat, was imported directly from Japan.

在介紹讓人期待的甜品前,其中鹹點和熱葷也不錯的。抹茶蕎麥麵在這炎炎夏日食,便最好不過,有牛蒡配菜,更加清新。建議大家一上菜便要快手食,放久了變軟身便失色啊。相比下,腐皮抹茶烏冬定食更出色,抹茶烏冬彈牙,湯底淡但有點甘甜,十分清潤。而配上的白飯用上熊本米,灑上碾茶茶葉碎,差一點搶了鏡。

Before introducing the most exciting desserts,  some savory and hot items would also be nice to be highlighted. Matcha soba served with burdock would be a refreshing choice for summer.  It would be better if you eat it right when it’s served, and before it gets a bit too soft.  Kitsure matcha udon was comparatively good, as the udon was quite crunchy and the soup was light and gentle.

甜品,大家最期待的,小妹也不例外。焙茶芭菲,層層分明,忌廉、雪芳蛋糕、焙茶啫喱等,各有特色。但焙茶啫喱真的讓我停不了口,這個份量有點大,兩口子分享會較好。

For the desserts, as you all are expecting, the Hojicha Parfait is the no.1 I liked among those I have tried. With the cream, chiffon cake and Hojicha jelly, every ingredient has its own characteristics to draw your attention. However, the Hojicha jelly was so smooth and light that I couldn’t stop eating it. The whole portion of the Parfait is a bit big that would be enough to be shared for 2 pax.

另外,名物生茶啫喱是必食推介,以秘方研製的啫喱抹茶香味濃而又十分幼滑,配上抹茶雪糕,夏天必選的甜品之一。而店裡限量供應的抹茶蕨餅全人手製作,每天限量供應,這天能食到,實屬難得。有咬口的蕨餅面層有一層抹茶粉,配上沖繩黑糖蜜糖,甘甜的味道讓人愛不釋手。

Besides, Matcha jelly, the ultimate signature item in Tokichi, is also a must-eat. The jelly with secret recipe carried rich match flavour at a smooth texture that you would just swallow it without a thought. The limited warabimochi is handmade and it made me feel so special while I could have a chance to try it. The tender mochi was covered by some match powder. The brown sugar syrup was definitely the best partner to serve with it.
