Mari’s Metcha Matcha – Box of wonders

Eager for trying Japanese food that goes beyond the oh-so-familiar sushi and maki? You may consider giving this minimalistic though colourful mingle-mangle filled with surprises a try. Mari’s Metcha Matcha not only offers great green tea creations but also shows off with quite a fine collection of different “tapas” from Japan, which come served in little ceramic bowls, plates and minimalistic baskets. Beyond that, maybe you’ll fancy having a ramen or an onigiri – back then a zero-waste-kind of snack for travelling in Japan – or you might give in to sipping a Japanese lemonade.

Admittedly, the place is not the cheapest, as isn’t its country of origin, but even if you’re on a student budget (which I still kinda am) you can drop by in the afternoon to try their Tapas or Mochis, one at a time. And if you’re around later in the evening you might consider having some sake, which true to the traditions you’ll have to sip from a wooden and edgy cup.

One reason I really like this place is its style. Space is rare but they really make the most out of it and give you the feeling of sitting right inside a wooden box of surprises, not only of culinary but also aesthetic character. If you’re up for something different, this might be the place to head for.
