Via Tokyo’s popular Matcha ice cream is made of matcha powder from Kyoto and mixed with the smoothest Hokkaido milk. The texture is very rich and creamy, with a strong green tea taste. Be aware, the portions are huge but fairly cheap for Hong Kong.
Practical information: This small place is very popular and the queue can be overwhelming. 2895 1116; Shop 1A-1B, GF Lei Shun Court, 106-126 Leighton Road in Causeway Bay.
Oddies in Wanchai

Oddies is a small shop in Wanchai; loyal clients keep coming back for their sundaes and according to some of them, it's truly worth it. "The Night Wolf is out of this world good. The combination of dark chocolate gelato and chocolate chip "eggette" (gei dan chai) is incredible." The chocolate in the gelato is properly dark, 66%, so not too sweet. While the warm, sweet, perfectly cooked eggette is an excellent contrast that pair together perfectly.
Practical information: Be prepared for a long wait and as there is no seating, you will need to eat outside the store. 9551 7972; 149 Wanchai Road.
