Kyoto: Matcha Parfait At Tsujiri Honten In Gion

 photo IMG_9491-160228-v2__zpsf6hch68m.jpgI am not a fan of matcha-anything but I love Tsujiri’s matcha parfaits.  Their matcha ice cream is smooth and creamy, with a touch of bitterness.  I have always been satisfying my Tsujiri matcha parfait craving at the 100AM outlet at Tanjong Pagar.

During our stay in Kyoto this time, I made it a point to visit Tsujiri Honten which is conveniently located at Gion.  I had my usual Tsujiri order that is a matcha parfait that comes with shiratama dango and azuki.  I am glad to report that the matcha ice-cream sold here is as good as the one in Kyoto. At least, I could not tell any visible difference between the two in terms of taste and texture.

Isn’t it typical of Japanese thoughtfulness to provide an ice-cream cone stand for dine-in customers?

  1. There are many different Tsujiris in Japan so it can get confusing, but as far as I can tell from the logo in your photo, this Tsujiri is neither the one at your listed address (http://www.giontsujiri.co.jp/saryo/store/kyoto_gion/) nor the one in Singapore (http://tsujiri-global.com/).

    The Tsujiri found in Singapore has all of 3 Japanese branches in Kitakyushu.

    The Tsujiri you were at is likely within walking distance from the one you intended to go to. I suppose you landed at the wrong place but just FYI because it’s so misleading. xD I realised this after cross-referencing with another blog that featured 2 Tsujiris (http://whereisfatboy.blogspot.sg/2015/04/kyoto-tsujiri-honten-gion.html).

    Glad you enjoyed the matcha though~

    1. Hello Janice

      Thanks for pointing this out. I didn’t realize that the Tsujiri in Singapore is not from the Kyoto ones! I went to the Tsujiri Honten shop along Gion and they showed me to the shop next door when I said I wanted ice-cream, that’s how I thought they were one and the same.
