I took a trip to Mitsuwa in Edgewater, NJ this past weekend. There was a special festival this weekend – the Kyushu and Okinawa Fair. Fairs at Mitsuwa = lots of delicious food. I scored one of the last boxes of this special dessert!
The Green Tea Roll Cake is FANTASTIC! The cake part has slight bitter vegetal note that is indicative of high quality matcha. The cake itself is very moist too. The light vanilla scented cream pairs perfectly with the cake and is a great foil to the matcha. The flan provides additional sweetness, but not too sweet, and a really nice textural contrast. I could have this cake every day! Keep an eye on special events at Mitsuwa to score one for yourself. If you don’t believe me, this blogger recommends this cake too!
