Matcha is impossible to avoid these days, especially if you’re on Instagram. I was so curious about this green drink all over my timeline, I wondered whether I’d even like it. I typically avoid green beverages and anything good for me to be honest. Then I scored an invite to Yōko Matcha, Miami’s first specialty matcha cafe.
The cafe focuses on matcha tea drinks, coffee, and Japanese and Latin fusion style food items. I knew this was going to be the place I’d decide if matcha was something I could get into. Chié one of the owners was on hand to make the best recommendations and let us try all variety of things. Long story short, I’m a matcha fan! I’m surprised but everything was so tasty I couldn’t resist. From the latin pastries infused with matcha to the actual matcha tea, I love it all.
Bonus, we asked about the name and found that Yōko is actually Chié’s Japanese grandmother. You can find out more about Chié, Yōko, the cafe, and the menu on Yōko Matcha’s website here. Be sure to visit if you’re in the area, you won’t regret it!
