If you’re a matcha fan, there’s something new coming to the city!

An unpretentious Chinese noodle shop along Victoria Drive has been teasing its new Matcha Drink Menu on social media over the past two weeks.

It had us and several others scratching our heads.

It’s quite peculiar – one wouldn’t expect to find aesthetic Instagram-worthy strawberry matcha lattes served alongside a build-your-own bowl of noodles as you’d find from Deer Garden or with a plate of Hainanese Chicken.

However, this combination is real, as Shun Fa Noodle prepares to launch its matcha cafe inside its restaurant on April 20th.

From their TikTok & Instagram posts, expect to see a lineup including Strawberry Matcha Latte, Mango Matcha Latte, the viral Strawberry Foam Matcha Latte from Montreal, and even Matcha-covered Strawberries.

These drinks are crafted with plant-based milks, contain no additives, use ceremonial grade matcha, and feature homemade purees made from real fruits.

Shun Fa Noodle, which opened its doors in 2018, serves a variety of traditional Chinese dishes and affordable build-your-own noodle combo ($12).

Given the interest in the matcha drinks shown in their TikTok posts, it will be interesting to see how this new menu is received.

Currently, the matcha menu is only available on Saturday, April 20th for its launch and then additional days will be released on their social media.
