It has been 35 years since Häagen-Dazs ice cream arrived in Japan in 1984. This year, Japan is also celebrating the arrival of a brand new era! That’s why Häagen-Dazs is celebrating with the release of a new course menu that you can enjoy with all five of your senses. The menu is currently available at the Häagen-Dazs MATCHA SALON which is open for a limited period only from Thursday 24th April to Sunday 5th May 2019. The salon is located at Hills Cafe/ Space in Roppongi Hills.
The supervisor for this salon is Daisuke Kaneko, who is also the owner and chef of the famous French restaurant L’AS. The main concept of the matcha salon is to enjoy Häagen-Dazs’ specially-made matcha in all kinds of ways. There is a six-piece course overflowing with entertaining features for you to enjoy.
Green tea and lime non-alcoholic cocktail
This welcome drink is made by combining carefully-made matcha with carbonated water. Rich matcha is added to refreshing lime so you can feel rejuvenated as you enter the world of matcha.
Matcha jelly made from matcha leaves grown in the dark!
The leaves used for the Häagen-Dazs green tea maintain their fresh colour and flavour from being grown in a covered area. The smooth and juicy matcha jelly and the sweet and sour fresh fruits bring about a delicious flavour. These flavours taste better together than one might imagine. All that’s left is to light the fire at the table and it’s complete!
Matcha tiramisu made from three different strengths of matcha
Matcha sponge cake cream is smashed up and topped with mascarpone mousse and matcha powder. There are three different matcha strengths of tiramisu so you can enjoy the changing flavours!
Supreme bliss Häagen-Dazs green tea
-5°C is the best temperature to enjoy Häagen-Dazs ice cream. This ice cream just melts gently in your mouth with a wonderful new texture. Allow yourself to drift away with the scent of matcha surrounding you as the matcha flavour on your tongue spreads in your mouth!
You can even enjoy the sound of Häagen-Dazs ice cream! Immerse all of your senses in this range of Häagen-Dazs matcha ice cream treats with this special course!
