Nestled inside Liberty Arc, this home-based pop-up store used to be at Setapak, KL but recently made a fresh start by relocating in Ampang! IJO Matcha is a paradise for matcha lovers and has been stealing hearts since its Setapak days until today and you'll find all things matcha here but a unique local twist in all of their drinks ?

If you love the pandan-flavoured onde-onde kuih, you have to try their newest drink, Matcha Onde Onde where the flavour is perfectly balanced between matcha and palm sugar and to elevate that onde-onde taste, they add grated coconut to top it all off. Love cincau? Get the Matcha Chai Cincau and you'll sure be pleasant with the delicious taste and soft black jelly! They've also taken a delightful twist on the pink bandung selasih drink and incorporated it inside a matcha drink called Matcha Bandung Selasih. This drink is the best of bandung selasih and matcha world!
