Denny's Japan recently added a taste of Kyoto to its menu in the form of delicious matcha desserts. Although Denny's is an American restaurant, the chain has gone to great lengths to satisfy regional taste preferences. Its latest desserts make use of a premium Japanese ingredient to put an Asian twist on standard American fare.
The new breakfast dishes and desserts available from Denny's Japan are made with Kyoto's Uji matcha green tea. The matcha powder is used in a number of different ways to add a taste of traditional Kyoto cuisine to more basic dishes. Some of the standout treats from the new menu include Uji Matcha Pancakes, the Uji Matcha Mini Parfait and the Uji Matcha Sundae.
The innovative dessert menu demonstrates how global chains can tailor their menus to regional markets by making use of local ingredients.
