Best Matcha Dessert Buffets in Tokyo 2021
Best All-You-Can-Eat Matcha Dessert Buffets in Tokyo
Various kinds of dessert buffets are held at restaurants/lounges of luxury hotels in Japan through the year, using seasonal ingredients and featuring special themes. You can enjoy high-quality confections made with fine ingredients by top patissiers of the hotels as much as you like with all-you-can-eat style.
One of the most anticipated dessert buffets is a matcha theme, which is in season in spring and summer. Matcha flavour desserts are not only popular in Japan but also worldwide nowadays as people fall in love with the rich and refreshing flavour of the green tea leaves and the fine balance of the sweetness and the bitterness. At each hotel, the buffet offers a wide variety of creative and delightful matcha desserts including cakes, tarts, parfait, pudding and more!
