Matcha made in heaven.
Little Bao's Matcha Ice Cream Bao
The Hong Kong-hailing restaurant adds a touch of American fast-food to traditional Chinese dishes. Aside from the succulent savory options, we're taken with chef May Chow's take on the ice cream bao (B120), which comes with Guss Damn Good ice cream sandwiched between two deep-fried buns. Try the matcha flavor, dripping with condensed milk—a combination that's not only pleasing to look at, but also a remarkable texture sensation.

Beard Papa’s Limited Edition Matcha Treats
Not only has this Japanese dessert favorite made a triumphant return to Bangkok, it's brought with it three kinds of matcha cream puffs—choose from the matcha pie cream puff (B65), matcha cookie cream puff (B70) and matcha eclair cream puff (B75). Since these are seasonal items we're not sure how long they'll be on offer, so you'd better hurry and try them before they're gone!

Yuutaro's Green Tea Lava Cake
Although this sushi restaurant is primarily known for its fresh and high-quality ingredients, it does serve one dessert that's rather hard to come by. Their green tea lava cake (B200) is a customer favorite and it's easy to see why. The chocolate cake oozes a matcha filling and is served with soy bean powder, ice cream, and strawberries.

Matcha Ten's Many, Many Matcha Offerings
With matcha in its name, this cafe was always going to make our list. On top of options like matcha roll cake and match tiramisu (pictured above), it recently added a melt-in-your-mouth matcha sponge cake (B145), which is topped with mascarpone cream, black cookies and a bright green matcha sauce—delicious.

Peace Teahouse's Oh-So-Fancy Matcha Ice Cream
This has to be Bangkok's fanciest matcha ice cream. Made in-house with natural ingredients by tea expert Teerachai Limpaitoon, the ice cream comes with three grades of matcha (B190, B240, B280), each served with house-candied Japanese chestnuts. In keeping with the spirit of the zen tea-house, your only utensils are a pair of chopsticks. The result is rich in flavor yet light in texture.
