In recent years, the popularity of matcha has been on the rise, leading to an increase in shops that specialize in matcha products in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. Among these, one of the most renowned matcha cafes is Niko Neko Matcha.

In 2018, they opened their first branch, Niko Neko Matcha 1.5, in the upscale residential area of Bangsar. In 2020, they introduced a second branch, Niko Neko Matcha 2.0, located in Chinatown. Niko Neko Matcha 2.0 boasts easy access from the heart of Kuala Lumpur and is bustling with young patrons day after day.

The interior of the cafe features a modern design with a minimalist theme, primarily using white and gray tones.

They source high-quality matcha from regions like Wazuka in Kyoto and Yame in Fukuoka. Their offerings include straight matcha, matcha lattes, and matcha mocktails infused with various fruits.

Their drink menu extends beyond matcha to include a variety of teas like hojicha(roasted green tea), genmaicha(brown rice green tea), gyokuro(shaded green tea), and Japanese black tea.

At Niko Neko Matcha, they also recommend indulging in authentic matcha desserts such as matcha cheesecake and matcha tiramisu.

The cafe sells the matcha they use in their beverages, packaged in sophisticated designs that leave a lasting impression.

Additionally, they offer an array of original utensils such as chasen (tea whisks) and chashaku (tea scoops).

Gaining popularity among the younger crowd, Niko Neko Matcha leads Kuala Lumpur’s matcha scene.
