The Place If you only have space for one Matcha cafe to check out in Taipei, Matcha One is our top pick. With two outlets in 16Taipei, we checked out their newest branch near Zhongxiao Fuxing station, a contemporary zen-like space which instantly transports us to Japan. There is also another branch along Yong Kang Street.
The Food The range of matcha desserts are wide, from Mille crepe cake to matcha waffles and matcha roll. Using mainly Uji matcha, the Matcha mille crepe (NT$195) has a rich dose of matcha yet not overly sweet for our low tolerance sugar levels.
If you love Matcha, the desserts are Matcha One are delicious. Using mainly premium Uji Matcha with a Japanese zen-like space, the ex-financial sector owner sticks to the strong principle of serving high quality and authentic Japanese matcha desserts. We enjoyed this Matcha mille crepe which has a rich dose of matcha yet not overly sweet for our low tolerance sugar levels. Likewise, you can’t go very wrong with a serving of the Matcha soft ice cream (NT$90).
Rants Prices are on the high side by cafe standards in Taipei.
Will I Return Again? We really love the zen space of Matcha One, and more importantly, the high quality of its matcha items. It’s a must visit for matcha lovers and suffice to say, we will be back.
