Food Picks Ep 5: Fragrant bamboo-whisked matcha and handmade soba under $10

3:56 mins

Synopsis: This is the best of the food recommendations The Straits Times has talked about and is out on alternate Wednesdays.

Host Melissa Sim chats with food correspondent Rebecca Lynne Tan about the fragrant bamboo-whisked matcha tea from Volks Coffee Co., originally named The Matcha Project, located at the basement of The Sail @ Marina Bay.

The store sells a variety of drinks made from green tea leaves, such as genmaicha (green tea with roasted brown rice) latte and hojicha (roasted green tea leaves) latte.

Rebecca also recommends very affordable handmade soba from Tokyo Soba in Tanjong Pagar.
