Japanese-style cafe Nagaoka’s “Matcha Milk Kintoki Shaved Ice”

If you're looking for shaved ice with maximum Japanese flavors, I recommend the Matcha Milk Kintoki Shaved Ice at Japanese-style cafe Nagaoka that opened in Kitahorie!

As I was cycling on the west side of subway Yotsubashi Line “Yotsubashi Station”, I found a Japanese-style cafe I’ve never seen before!

c00112-02-min

Shaved ice!?
I was lured by the look of Matcha Shaved Ice.

c00112-03-min

It was Japanese-style cafe Nagaoka that just opened on June 25, 2015.

c00112-04-min

I had to experience this, so I immediately entered the shop.

c00112-05-min

The stylish interior, hardly expected of a Japanese-style cafe, is fresh.

c00112-06-min

I take a seat and at once check the menu.

c00112-07-min

There are a wide variety of shaved ice on the menu.

c00112-08-min

What surprised me most from the Japanese-style cafe Nagaoka’s menu, was wagashi shop Isshin’s warabimochi (350 yen).
It is only available from Tuesday through Saturday (limited to 20 servings), but it’s delightful that you can enjoy warabimochi from Osaka’s famous wagashi shop here.

This time I ordered Matcha Milk Kintoki Shaved Ice.

c00112-10-min

All toppings are served separately.

c00112-11-min

Matcha syrup, milk syrup, syrup.

c00112-12-min

Three shiratama dumplings and original anko.

c00112-13-min

First I pour on the matcha syrup.

c00112-14-min

Next the milk syrup.

c00112-15-min

Finally I adjust the sweetness with the syrup.

c00112-16-min

Here I take a little taste.
I made a shaved ice with an excellent balance of the bitter matcha, rich milk, and sweet syrup.

c00112-17-min

After enjoying it for a while, I lavishly top the anko.

c00112-18-min

I poured on all the remaining matcha syrup and milk syrup.

c00112-19-min

It looks completely different now from the originally white shaved ice.
This truly is Matcha Milk Kintoki Shaved Ice!
Here I go!

c00112-20-min

The contrast between the crunchy ice and firm anko is delightful.
The bitter matcha and sweet anko. The cold ice enhances their goodness, and this truly is Japanese shaved ice.
Soooo delicious!!!!!!!!

c00112-21-min

With the shiratama, you can enjoy the chewiness and mild flavor and this is nice too.
I was impressed with the Japanese-style harmony created with each of the quality ingredients.
The flavor makes you want to keep eating from one to the next.

c00112-22-min

Finally, the melted ice turns into cold matcha milk.

c00112-23-min

I enjoyed the afterglow of the shaved ice with the matcha flavor.
It was delicious. Thank you!

c00112-24-min
