Shiratama Sundae ($8.00)
Matcha soft serve, Japanese rice dumplings,
Red bean, roasted soybean powder
OK LAWD. The matcha soft serve ice cream here is no joke. Meaning, I really really need one whole tub of the ice cream ASAP!!! I love all things matcha and this far exceeded my expectations (yep, it’s better than Uncle Tetsu). TBH, the size of the cup itself was pretty small, and I’m guessing it’s pricey because they import some ingredients from Japan. I got the Shiratama Sundae which was pretty dope but thought that the ice cream to red bean ratio was a bit off – the red bean’s sweetness overpowered the matcha. The rice dumplings didn’t add any value. Overall the standout here is the soft serve.
I read that some people lined up for an hour and a half to two hours for this… It’s not worth the wait. Go when there are no lines and pick up a matcha cream puff (which I didn’t get because I just got my wisdom teeth pulled, boo).
