Took a trek ALLLLL the way out to Matcha Cafe Wabi in the East Village to try their matcha latte. And it was totally worth it even in the freezing cold.
The matcha latte is made with a heavy cream base (YES!) and light syrup.
The matcha flavor shines through and it’s perfectly sweet and creamy. It was delicious and I love the cute leaf design topping the latte.
To go with my matcha latte, I got their matcha rice crispy treat (I need to make this!) and a sweet red bean, cranberry, and raisin steam bun. The steam bun is savory and isn’t really sweet at all, but it went well with the sweet matcha latte. The rice crispy treat had a nice matcha flavor but overall the baked goods were good, but not exceptional. I wouldn’t go back for those baked goods, but if I’m in the area, I would definitely go for another matcha latte — so good!!
It’s a cute place but there’s very little seating inside. There’s just a small bench that can fit two people so it’s better to take your drink to go. But really, you should go and try that matcha latte!
