Matcha (green tea powder) is one of the most famous and traditional food ingredients in Japan, and it’s popular all around the world. Not only for drinking, Matcha products can be enjoyed with various ways such as Matcha flavoured desserts, dishes and drinks. If you love Matcha products, Japan is surely the best country to visit as you can try a wide variety of Matcha products, in addition, the best possible time would be early summer. Early summer is the harvest seasons of green tea leaves at many tea farms in Japan, and various Matcha products are released every year by numbers of shops, cafes and restaurants.
The most anticipated event for Matcha lovers is currently held at one of Tokyo’s best luxury hotels, ANA InterContinental Tokyo. The Match Collection is a seasonal Matcha event which takes place at 7 venues in the hotel including restaurants and bars, and offers various kinds of innovative and flavourful Matcha dishes.

-Matcha Taraba Crab Burger & Matcha Panaché <REVIEW>
When it comes to Matcha food, most of us may think about Matcha desserts or sweet Matcha drinks, but the Matcha Collection at ANA InterContinental Tokyo offers really unique and creative Matcha dishes. The authentic American style steakhouse, The Steakhouse serves “the Matcha Taraba Crab Burger” for a limited time along with the green Matcha beer cocktail. I have recently visited The Steakhouse and tried out this seasonal Matcha Burger on my own!
My first impression was that this green Matcha Burger was 1000% instagrammable, and the perfect option for foodies and trend seekers! I was not only impressed by its look but also the taste of the burger itself was truly fabulous and very unique. The burger is created with the concept of “East meets West”, and it’s uniquely served with Taraba Crab (King Crab) patty instead of meat!
The crunchy breadcrumbed King Crab cake was deep-fried to the golden colour, and it was pretty meaty and chunky as satisfying as meat patty! The crab patty was dressed with tomato and aubergine salsa sauce with a hint of Yuzu flavour, then sandwiched between Matcha infused green buns. It had an amazing balance of the taste of East and West! This Matcha Taraba Crab Burger took me to a whole new burger experience. (In case you are not into seafood products, The Steakhouse does fantastic Wagyu Beef Burger which I also recommend!)
The unique pairing beverage is also available for the limited time. The eye-popping green beer cocktail “Matcha Panaché” is made with one of the best craft beer brands in Japan, COEDO Beer’s draft white beer. It was so refreshing, and went perfectly with the mouthwatering Taraba Crab Matcha Burger. I got to know that The Steakhouse currently owns beer taps of 6 kinds of COEDO Beer, so don’t miss a chance to try out one of the finest craft beer in Japan!
-Panda-stic Matcha Sweets Buffet
The photo-worthy dessert buffet, “Panda-stic Matcha Sweets Buffet” is available at The Champagne Bar (3F), offering 40 kinds of Japanese and Western style Matcha flavoured bites (25 sweets and 15 savories) including Matcha Tiramisu, Matcha Panna cotta, the Matcha chocolate fountains, Matcha sandwich and Matcha Pizza. All these bites can be enjoyed with all-you-can-eat style!
All the sweets items are infused with the finest matcha green tea products, and some of savory items are made with green vegetables such as spinach and asparagus, which makes the whole buffet green colour! Besides, traditional Japanese ingredients such as Yuzu and Shiso are also used in some items. Along with the delightful Matcha flavoured sweets and snacks, enjoy free-flow drinks with the choice of 15 kinds of coffee and flavour tea.
The delightful matcha desserts are displayed at the counter decorated with green bamboo trees and adorable Panda friends. Make sure to take a lot of photos of Matcha desserts at the buffet!
If you love Matcha, this is the best opportunity to try the finest quality of Matcha desserts as much as you wish! The Matcha buffet is held annually at ANA InterContinental Tokyo, and it’s extremely popular every year.
