We Found the Perfect Cake for Matcha-and-Chocolate Lovers
(SPOT.ph) Since its rise to ubiquity in 2014, matcha continues to be almost impossible to resist with its distinct sweet-earthy flavor. If you love all things matcha, you must try Hanamaruken Ramen’s newest dessert, which bursts with green-tea goodness.
Matcha Lava Cake with Ice Cream
Fans of Royce' Chocolates and their Nama Chocolate Maccha (which, incidentally, you can now get locally as part of Royce's Green Tea Fair), you can find that same matcha-chocolate goodness in Hanamaruken’s Matcha Lava Cake with Ice Cream (P180). This cake has a gooey melted matcha milk-chocolate center that oozes out once you slice through the green tea-flavored cake. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is the perfect foil to the warm and dense cake, making each bite even more of a treat. Pair your cake with the refreshing Iced Green Tea (P80) and you’ve got yourself a blockbuster matcha duo.
Chocolate Lava Cake with Ice Cream
Hanamaruken has also added a more traditional Chocolate Lava Cake with Ice Cream (P180) to their menu, which would please chocoholics with its melted dark-chocolate center.
Hanamaruken is at Trinoma, Quezon City; The Grove by Rockwell, Pasig City; and Alabang Town Center, Muntinlupa City.
