Mochicream Café - a Special Japanese Coffee and Dessert Place

Mochicream Cafe - house of authentic matcha drinks and desserts

One of the food stops that I really enjoyed in the recently concluded SM Megamall Mega Food Wok was this Mochicream Cafe, a Japanese Cafe serving special and not-so-common drinks and desserts. It was pure awesome how the place offered something different and familiar both at the same time! 

A Cafe that is Modern yet Clique 
Mochicream Cafe has a modern yet stylish interior that exudes an ambiance of comfort and peace. Plus, the furniture (more specifically the chairs) are really cool, although you need to be mindful of your weight so that the chairs won't lose their balance.

Note on the mochi: These are the traditional mochi which means that the filling inside is made out of paste/cream and not ice cream.

Now, let me share with you two of the specialties of Mochicream Café!

Matcha Dacqiose (P170) and Matcha Latte Espresso ((P155 for 12 oz)

The Matcha Dacqiose reminded me of the Alcapone of JCO, but this was so much better and more comforting. To exaggerate, I felt really light and worry-free for a few seconds while munching on these!

Yes it may be really sweet at times, but I didn't mind it that much because of the comforting blend of flavors.

On the other hand, the latte was something I really appreciated. Frankly, I was surprised myself because I'm not much of a coffee person, but I think it was the matcha to blame, since it  shadowed part of the bitterness of the coffee, making the drink oh-so-enjoyable!

Energetic and Potent Matcha Essence
The pastry and the drink both featured the authentic DO matcha that had a lively, energetic and potent taste. This matcha green tea product is different from the usual ones you know because of the authenticity. You'll understand what I'm talking about when you actually get to taste the natural subtle bitter tang innate to this type of matcha green tea!

Mochicream Café  - Summary

Give your approval or disapproval to Mochicream Café 

Overall, I found Mochicream a good place for drinks and desserts. I know I might be having a hasty generalization, but I saw a lot of potential in this place, and to support this claim, there were a lot of customers chilling by the time we went there.

However, I checked out the Zomato page and the reviews seem to go in a different direction. Still, I stand by my view on the two products I've tried. Now, how about you? What do you think about this place?
