If your personal path to foodie enlightenment comes from embracing everything green, then the arrival of JENKI in Spitafields this week is for you. This new matcha bar is aiming to convert London's coffee lovers to the health (and taste) benefits of all things matcha.
Certainly it looks like they're going to switch things up on the beverages front with everything from Rose and Collagen Latte, Black Tahini and Charcoal Shake on the menu. They're also hoping we'll take to their Flat Green - a matcha twist on the Flat White.
As co-owner Claudia Stevenson explains, they take their matcha very seriously - it's all single origin and from a family run farm which is stone-ground.
Food-wise there's going to be a combination of matcha-infused dishes like Raw Matcha Cheesecake and the Jenki snicker - a choc peanut brittle date caramel matcha cashew cream bar, alongside items like Miso caramel sauce soft serve and an Egg miso mayo sando.
Plus, things look like they might get interesting in the evening, because JENKI will be transforming into "a cool and contemporary cocktail joint" by night.
