Matcha Cafe Maiko Las Vegas

Matcha Cafe Maiko Las VegasI had the opportunity to visit Matcha Cafe Maiko while I was in Las Vegas.

Noli Ergas told me about it. We went there together with the rest of the staff from Sugimoto America.

Matcha Cafe Maiko also has a store in Honolulu and San Francisco.

And according to their website, a new store will open in Houston later this year.

Whenever I visit Japan, I always make sure to eat a dessert made with matcha at least once. There are many green tea cafes there, but in my country there are none.

That’s why I was very excited about going to Matcha Cafe Maiko.

When we got there, the place was quite busy. There were about 20 people.

The place has a good atmosphere, we had a fun time.

I was interested in the matcha parfait, but decided to order the Uji kintoki.

This dessert is basically a shaved ice with matcha. I’ll take note to write a post about it in the near future.

I loved it, it tasted just like the ones in Japan.

The next time that I visit Las Vegas, I’ll definitely stop at Matcha Cafe Maiko.

This is the address: 3400 S Jones Blvd #3, Las Vegas, NV 89146.

      Hi Andrew

      Definitely, Uji kintoki is a type of kakigōri (Japanese shaved ice dessert).

    I really liked their store in Honolulu! I had the parfait and it was oh-so-good! Looking forward to their opening in Vancouver!
