I love Japanese ice-cream. Their flavours are always unique and they somehow manage to feel guilt-free. Well, to me at least. CC and I rounded off our ramen mains with a scoop of refreshing ice-cream at Men-Tei recently during lunch. I've reviewed all of the 6 varieties of ramen here before, so I'll just review the ice-cream now.
This is CC's favourite flavour, the Macha ($4), green tea ice-cream that's both healthy (because it's choc-full of antioxidants) and delicate. Sweetened red bean balanced out the somewhat tannin-acidic quality of the green tea.
This is my favourite, the Yuzu ($4), Japanese grapefruit sorbet interspersed with bits of yuzu fruit, very refreshing, and with a palate-cleansing quality about it that's so delectable. For those of you that don't quite know what's yuzu, it's like what a cousin fruit of Mandarin oranges would taste.
