Food Porn: Matcha Fetish

Like kale, quinoa and acai berry, matcha has gone mainstream, and it’s not just for beverages. This superfood has been turning up in everything from savoury dishes to delectable sweets. If all the nutrition packed into this delicate green tea isn’t enough excuse for you to start thinking green, Antoinette is serving up a delectable menu with its latest Fetish Matcha July promotion. There’s a charity component too – for every order of selected matcha items, Antoinette will donate a dollar to the Singapore Children's Society OCBC-TODAY Children's Fund.

Fetish Matcha at Antoinette

For its first “Fetish Campaign”, Chef Pang of Antoinette has spared whipped up a dazzling array of 22 matcha-themed creations perfect for a relaxing afternoon tea. Diners will be treated to a full-sensorial sweet-n-savoury experience that fully showcases Chef Pang’s passion and creativity, when they visit Antoinette in the month of July.

We can’t recommend this menu enough, but if you only have stomach space for one or two dishes, the Matcha-Truffle Pasta ($26) and the Matcha Pop ($9.50) are our must-try dishes.

Matcha Truffle Pasta

The sole savoury dish in the parade of matcha delights, this pasta is served with juicy Morel mushrooms and pink Sakura Ebi, garnished with truffle oil and marinated kombu. Matcha powder is kneaded into the pasta dough, infusing the noodles with a burst of flavour. For matcha fans who crave a stronger kick, the pasta is also served with matcha powder on the side.

Matcha Pancakes

Good things come in threes! Served in a stack, the pancakes come with a generous slab of sinful butter and a marron glace chantilly cream and maple syrup on the side. Soft and fluffy, the bittersweet taste of matcha is complimented perfectly by the cream and syrup.

Matcha Pop

The delectable chocolate shell cracks open to reveal the treasure within the Matcha Pop: a smooth matcha cake interior with matcha ganache and white chocolate.

Yuzu Lychee Iced Tea

Wash down your matcha treats with the cool green tea. With a rich, creamy texture, the fragrant matcha tea is perfectly balanced with hints of yuzu and fresh lychee.

With the mouth-watering array of Matcha-inspired confectionaries available, there’s no reason you can’t have your cake and eat it too at Antoinette’s @ Mandarin Gallery!
