Matcha Mania: The popular Matcha Sweets Buffet gets a Redux
An Encore for Osaka’s Popular Matcha Sweets Buffet
Somehow insulated from the city bustle, yet still in central Osaka is the Hyatt Regency Osaka. Last year they held a popular, fully booked in fact, “Matcha Sweets Buffet”, and this year it has returned from the 1st of April. This year the “Matcha Mania – Redux” will display a wealth of green delights on weekends and holidays until the 27th of August.
The main table has a line up of such delights as Matcha Paris-brest, Matcha cheesecake, matcha chiffon cake, and Matcha macarons, etc., with new additions in the form of a “Mini-wagashi (Japanese confectionary) bar” and a “Live cooking corner”.
At the “Mini Wagashi Bar”, you can create your own matcha parfait with your preference of toppings, and at the “live cooking” you can see spring-only matcha creme created right before your eyes by the chef.
In addition, there is a sub-sandwich with a scent of basil, or a menu of dishes with just a hint of matcha flavouring. In way of drinks, there are 7 types of Japanese tea to compare, making for a true green tea buffet.
After filling up on sweets and snacks, you can enjoy a fragrant cup of tea in the sunbathed lobby lounge.
