#FoodpornFridays – Tombo Matcha Bar, Covent Garden
Two #FoodpornFridays posts in one day? Yes. And this second one is all about the gorgeous matcha dusted matcha soft serve ice cream at Tombo. Mmmm matcha.
Tombo was possibly one of the first poké & matcha bars in London. They serve matcha in hot and cold drinks, shakes, and of course in their vivid matcha-green soft serve ice creams.
Our #FoodpornFridays post this week is all about the matcha soft serve ice cream – which is delish btw. You can have the ice cream in a cone or a cup, and we couldn’t resist the crisp waffled cone.
The matcha ice cream has a great depth of flavour, intensified even more by an extra dusting of matcha. It’s a gorgeous little treat that costs just a few pounds, and is one our favourite pick ups in the city.
Tombo also serve a cool poké selection – which is basically a Hawaiian version of sashimi. At Tombo they serve it as dice-sized cubes of raw fish on rice or courgetti. Similar to a Japanese Donburi. I’m sure there are better words to describe it, but this is a quickie #FoodpornFriday post so there!
Seriously though, both their matcha and raw fish is on point.
althPoints deducted for a slightly sterile, canteen-style design aesthetic inside the resto. But we like our matcha ice creams to go anyway, so no biggie.
Get there, quick.
