Locomoco Hamburg is beef or chicken patty served with warm millet rice with “Homemade tomato Locomoco sauce” garnished with red leaf lettuce, capsicum, broccoli and Japanese style poached egg. I tried their beef version and it is tasty. They use imported Australian beef with their secret ingredient and it goes well with the tomato Locomoco sauce. Hence, I love their idea of using healthy rice such as rice millet.
Rice millet uses an ancient rice recipe containing 10 different kinds of cereal mixed with polished rice. This is the recipe that brings about the start of the Japanese food culture. Nutrients such as minerals, vitamins and dietary fiber can be found in the millet rice which is good for the heart.
Seafood Mentaiko Udon with Cream Sauce
Nana’s Green Tea Café offers only udon in their menu and the Seafood Mentaiko Udon with Cream Sauce is their signature dish. Seafood Mentaiko Udon with Cream Sauce is udon noodles served with prawns, scallop, squid, walleye Pollock roe called “mentaiko”, capsicum and spring onion in cream sauce.
During my visit, I was lucky enough to meet Ms. Valerie Choo, the Master Franchise holder for Malaysia who has the vision to introduce excellent Japanese food culture and tradition to Malaysian and enrich people’s life. I had a lengthy conversation with her as we shared the same passion of loving the beautiful Japanese culture and food.
Overall, I enjoyed my Matcha (green tea) feast at Nana’s Green Tea Café. You can taste the smoothness and the quality of their premium Matcha and I fell in love with Hoji. It was love in first taste as the Hoji is aromatic and savoury. The Matcha ice cream is definitely one of the best in town and you can tell and taste from its soft texture. Thus, it is not too sweet and it didn’t leave any bitter after taste unlike many other Matcha ice cream do. It is all about quality food at Nana’s Green Tea.

About Nana’s Green Tea Cafe
15 years ago, a Japanese man came across a US corporation, Starbucks Coffee, a coffee-based restaurant in Japan that has attracted many Japanese to switch into coffees. Starbucks has generally changed the habit of foodies and tea-lover in most of the big cities including Japan. He became so worried that the habit of drinking tea will be taken over by coffee. This had inspired him to open the first Nana’s Green Tea Café in Jiyugaoka, Japan which then became famously known in Japan. It is based on matcha green tea that is originated from Japan which is healthy and a wide spread of Japanese food too. He is none other than its owner and President, Mr. Kazuto Kutami.
Today, Nana’s Green Tea has expanded its business overseas to countries such as Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, and definitely, Malaysia. Nana’s Green Tea had 65 outlets in Japan, 6 in Shanghai, 1 in Singapore and now it is landing in Malaysia.
Nana’s Green Tea logo mark is designed in the motif of ‘Cha-sen’, a tea stirrer, combined with the idea of ‘nanaha’, which comes from a typical seven leaves. From these, the logo is thus named as ‘nana-sen’.
“Nana’s Green Tea café concept offers a contemporary twist to traditional tea room” says award winning architect Mr. Masahiro Yoshida of Kamitopen, Japan who supervises the design. Customers are immediately drawn to the cherry blossom tree and the colorful Genji poster on the wall.
Nana’s Green Tea, a modern Japanese café delivers one-of-its-kind ‘Matcha’, the finest Japanese powdered green tea, which is said to boost metabolism, reduce cholesterol and help to control stress. Nana’s Green Tea is a refreshing departure from traditional Japanese culture, giving new idea to the green tea drinking culture, that was once popular in Japan. The café has stayed away from the old-fashioned-conventional interiors and instead opts for chic, hip and fun dining experience, creating a unique ‘New Japanese’ tea house that suits the lifestyle of modern people.
