The once-insipid F&B offerings at Plaza Singapura have finally been revitalized with the opening of its new wing. As much as I love desserts, picture-perfect Japanese parfaits weren't good enough a reason to venture all the way to Nana's Green Tea in JCube. Naturally, the matcha zealot in me was delighted when the tea house relocated from the far west to Dhoby Ghaut.
Yours truly was intrigued by the cleverly designed interiors of the café. The open-concept space is furnished with four rows of suspended square frames which bestow a sense of privacy to its occupants, complete with wooden fittings and warm lighting.
Prepared from matcha imported exclusively from Kyoto, my matcha latte with kuromitsu syrup was refinedly smooth and refreshing. But at $7.50++, I had expected more than just a kid-sized serving. While the parfaits call for a revisit, I'll probably head somewhere with more substantial portions for Japanese desserts unless Nana's adjusts its serving sizes.
