Nana’s Green Tea is a Japanese restaurant. I have always wanted to try out the food here and finally manage to do so recently. This outlet which I have visited is located on the lower ground floor of The Gardens Mall (Midvalley). Recently they have opened another outlet in Midvalley however on 3rd floor, near to GSC cinema which focuses on drink and desserts.
The concept of the restaurant is clean and modern take of Japanese food outlet. The staffs are dressed in white t-shirt which is pretty classic to me. So what do they serve? Off course it’s all about Japanese food! They do serve a long range of Matcha green tea drinks and desserts.
After checking out the menu, we decided to go ahead with Chicken Nanban (Crispy deep fried chicken fillet served with warm millet rice garnished with red leaf lettuce, broccoli, tomato, potato salad and tartar sauce), Locomoco Hamburg (chicken patty served with millet rice, with homemade tomato locomoco sauce, garnished with red leaf lettuce, capsicum, broccoli and Japanese style poached egg). We had a drink; Matcha Shiratama float and a dessert Matcha Nama Chocolate Parfait.
The Chicken Nanban was nice. The deep fried chicken fillet is not too oily and it was cooked perfectly. The millet rice was nice and it was filling. Meanwhile the Locomoco Hamburg dish was average. I didn’t really taste much of chicken in the patty which was overpowered with potato. The sauce was a bit too sour for my taste.
I really enjoyed the Matcha Shiratama as the matcha taste creamy yet full of green tea goodness.
The dessert Matcha Nama Chocolate Parfait was really good. You will find layers of Kanten jelly, matcha syrup, soft serve vanilla ice cream, layer of cornflakes, matcha ice creams, matcha chocolate ganache and red bean paste. I don’t think I ever had any green tea based dessert as much of green tea as this but I loved it!
The staffs were friendly and they were efficient. I would highly recommend this place for the Matcha drinks and desserts. I didn’t really fancy the food however it might differ to you. One thing for sure, I will be back soon for the green tea desserts! muaahahaha
