I’ve been matcha deprived. It has been more than a month since I’ve enjoyed the freedom of sitting at a cafe and sipping on a nice warm cup of matcha latte. Yup, it has been forever and I miss it. I know it may not be everyones’ cup of tea but it sure is mine. Not only does it have medicinal properties – vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, helps regulate blood pressure and blood sugar, aides your immune system, anti aging.. I also loveeee the green, leafy taste it has. My fascination for its’ taste is borderline weird, so my friends keep me but I cant help myself.
Anyways, as I was on my way back home the other day from picking up food, I ‘ternampak’ OCMC. Whattt? A matcha specialty cafe just 5 minutes away from me? Could this be where I get my matcha fix?? Perhaps 🤔🤔
I immediately got onto their social media just to get a feel of what they offer. They sure do offer a variety of stuff – drink, food, desserts. That kindda sealed the deal for me, I was gonna get my fix, finally.
I told you, didn’t I. They offer a variety, literally the whole works, from food to desserts and drinks. 🤩🤩
Fast forward the next morning… I headed straight to their Insta page, there was a link in their bio that would direct you to their ordering platform. Once you are there, click on the “Online Order (10 am – 7 pm)” tab. This would lead you to the ordering page. You scroll through their menu and then head all the way to the bottom of the page and click on “Order for takeaway and delivery here” tab. Then, choose between “Self PickUp” or “Food Delivery”. Keep in mind that in accordance with the MCO, they only deliver within a 10 km radius. Next, you select the items you want buy and finally make payment, which comes with three options – via the usual Visa/Mastercard, Grabpay and Boost?? if I am not mistaken. For the self pickup option, you’d be requested to provide a name and phone number. Once OCMC has received your order, they’d then call you to inquire about the collection time and etc.
The process was easy, no problem at all. Location-wise, the cafe is located along Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi, within the same row and a few doors away from CIMB, basically opposite/ facing Menara Ken and Petron.
Bentong Ginger + Turmeric +Matcha (Iced), 13 ringgit & Double Cheese Sandwich, 6 ringgit
The matcha drink was real good. I loved it, would certainly head back to OCMC as long as I am stuck in this part of town, for my matcha fix. I specifically ordered this combination because I was feeling kindda lethargic. I’ve been working on my laptop a lot, haven’t been moving around much, hence my body feeling rather tired the whole time. I needed a boost, a healthy one. Lucky me that it was tasty. The matcha taste was evident, so was the Bentong ginger. Here, they somehow managed to balance those strong flavors, rather than one overpowering the other, it somehow pleasantly blends. The sweetness was just right too. It was refreshing. I enjoyed it, truly.
** Be sure to give the drink a nice mix before you indulge. By the time I reached home, most of the matcha has already accumulated at the bottom. At that point, if you do not stir it, the drink would taste diluted. So, give it a nice mix so that you can enjoy it in its’ true glory.
The Double Cheese Sandwich is pretty simple. You’d get charcoal bread, with a layer of cheese + lettuce and mayo? You could eat it like that but by the time I reached home, the bread was already cold. I like my sandwiches warm, the cheese melted, which wasn’t the case here. So, I reheated my sandwich, made sure the cheese melted, added some extra items and then, ate it. It was good 🙂. If you fancy a simple sandwich with a reasonable price point, this could be it. I am planning to try their Roti Bakar with Matcha next. I am curious to taste that combination. Some sweetness with a pinch of bitterness perhaps??
