Via Tokyo


我沒有排新食店的習慣,所以別的blogger都介紹完我人才會慢慢的去。我比較喜歡熱潮過後去吃、因為人比較小而且也可以比較客觀地寫下中立的食評。而我有時候反而會去沒有什知名度的小店。

I don't really like to queue when there is new restaurant pop up , i always go after when it less people & not that popular, it will help me to write a Neutral review, and also, i like to visit some restaurant without fame but in good quality

Via Tokyo 一直都在open rice及朋友之間人氣十分高。打著日式風及綠茶口味,令到店面長期都大排長龍。事實上我以前住在銅鑼灣的時候都情願去就在Via tokyo旁邊的Bugeroom 也不去Via Tokyo. 為什麼呢?就是有點不好意思。自己一個人去吃甜品、相對起在甜點店裡大都是成群結隊或情侶檔。自己一個人好像有點孤單寂寞呢。不過呢,當我慢慢開始長大、已經沒有怕一個人、反而開始愛上偶爾的獨處時光。

Via Tokyo always has a very good rankings in Openrice.com, Via Tokyo’s popular Matcha ice cream made of powder from Kyoto and mixed in the smoothest Hokkaido milk. Their best-selling ice cream has a standing texture and strong scent of green tea and milk. There is always a long queue in front of their shop. Actually when i was living in Causeway bay i prefer to go Burgeroom which is at the next street rather then Via Tokyo, Why? because is it embarrassing to go alone, Dessert place in Hong Kong normally full of couples and groups, i feel a bit lonely if i am going alone, but, since i am getting old, i am not afraid to be alone and started to stay alone to spend sometime on myself 




當天也要排了一陣子隊、店裡十分細及擁擠。對裡面的裝潢風格有點失望、未必人人都重視這一點不過我因為職業病、很注重每餐廳的品牌形象是否統一一致。就像餐廳是賣可愛的可麗餅、總不會把自己店做成走濃濃的搖滾路線吧?有時落差會給人驚喜但也要視乎方式了。Via Tokyo的裝潢風格一個字形容「亂」。雖然努力地打做日式風格,可是店裡空間有限而且人太多,完全感受不了。店裡有一張大大的吊椅當其一張餐桌。老實說、十分的「阻掟」!出入超不方便、而且這裡是實行自己點餐的制度。這裡已經又逼又細還要穿過人海去點餐。太不貼心了!我自己倒是認為自己點餐是比較屬於擁有大地方的餐廳或飯堂用。唯獨是logo 上的設計我覺得很不俗。

That day i visited Via Tokyo still need to queue a bit, The place is really small, i disappointed for the Interior design, i know somebody they don't really care about this but as my profession i really don care about their brand image and styling. Via Tokyo Interior design is pretty messy, i can feel that they are trying so hard to do japanese style of decoration, but the place is really to small, and too crowded. Is hard to feel the mood they are building, there is a huge Hanging chair which is really annoying.

生果白玉抺荼牛奶雪糕餡蜜  (Fruit mix soft cream shiratama anmitsu)

當天我點了11號的生果白玉抺荼牛奶雪糕餡蜜和冰抺荼latte, 老實說賣相是很精美的但是沒有想像中的好吃。整體是不俗的,但要求很高的我還是不合意。抺荼甜點總是有一個問題。就是都掩蓋或做假抺荼的味道。帶苦澀回甘的味道我相信香港大部分的商家也為了迎合香港人的口味而做比較甜。抺荼雪糕拼牛奶雪糕,不枉為抺荼控專門店,抺荼雪糕味道香濃,抺荼味雪糕雖然不錯可是太甜,不能令淡淡奶香味的牛奶雪糕附和。味道上不清新脫俗,反而有點俗氣。附和著的水果既不時令也不新鮮,毫無食用之意。如果沒有糖漿我想整個甜點味道是平平無奇。至於抺荼latte、驚喜度也是不太高。沒有什麼特別但叫來解渴也可以。總括來說、via Tokyo 味道整體大致上是okay的。不過這裡不能滿足是抺荼口味愛好者的地方、雖然總不能和日本京都的比較,可是在京都或日本吃過的人,都知道這個不是the best了。但以香港現階段的水平來說,很不錯吃的了。而且 via Tokyo 不太合適一大群人來吃。壓力很高、吃完不能放鬆悠閒談談天放放鬆。因為總是有人在外面排隊等位子,我想有同理心及不自私的人一定不想待太久,因為別人在等。但就算我的他的食物上偏向普通,但大家經過附近也可以一試,始終香港賣水準不錯的專抺荼甜點店是不太多!

I ordered No.11 Fruit mix soft cream shiratama anmitsu & Iced Matcha latte
To be honest, yes it look so beautiful, but it doesn't taste THAT good as my Imagination. I am pretty picky and this is not make me feel satisfied. There is always a problem on matcha dessert, they always make it too sweet. The matcha taste too strong and didn't go well with the Milk ice cream, The taste is not really fresh at all, and the fruit are so bad, not fresh and no taste at all, if without the Syrup this dessert is pretty normal and not much taste. About the Matcha latte is normally as well, no surprising at all. Overall Via tokyo is not bad but here won't satisfied the people who is love matcha flavor, i know i shouldn't compare here and the shop in Kyoto, but if you tasted in Kyoto or in japan, i am sure u know the differences, but i am still recommend you to visit if u are around, because there is not much place to do a nice Matcha dessert in Hong Kong.

最後,Via Tokyo的食物很合港人口味,不過實力上我只是覺得中上,雖然看到多個食評分數高但我想我回頭的指數不大。始終這個口味不能滿足我這個抺荼控。

The last, i know via tokyo is perfect for Hongkongese, but the Strength i think is Okay, i saw there is lot of good comments or review, but i don't think i will come visit again, as Via tokyo could not satisfied a person who is addicted matcha flavor like me.

  1. Via tokyo在我公司附近,但通常見到佢時是未開舖。其實我成日都經過,但就可能是太普通,我完全發覺唔到係咁hit。睇完你comment,不用特意去排隊了。因為我都好怕店子又亂又細,食都唔舒服!

    1. 佢係幾年都hit 得好誇張,可能開頭真係好好食但我只係覺得名氣過大,如果佢一日唔搬地方相信一路上都唔舒服嫁啦。
