Matchstick Coffee has opened their newest location in Chinatown close to Phnom Penh. They are a specialty roastery and retailer in Vancouver, BC, with an emphasis on hand-crafted preparation and delivery of single-origin coffees. Their Chinatown location is a lot bigger than their Kingsway/Fraser location. It’s a great place to work or relax with friends.

I came here with my coworkers to grab a cup of coffee and a snack and then head back to our office. Besides coffee and pastries, they do sell breakfast and lunch.

They sell coffee in their cute packaging. They have 6 varieties that vary in taste.

They make really good and strong pour overs.

I decided to get my usual cappuccino.

Cappuccino ($3.25) is quite smooth and creamy. The espresso is strong and I really enjoy their coffee.

Savoury Puff Tart has squash, béchamel, ricotta & kale. The puff pastry was really flakey  and made lovely crunch noise when I bit down on it. Then the yummy ricotta taste fills your mouth.

Overall, it’s great to have a hip coffee shop in Chinatown. It’s really changing up Chinatown and it should be interesting to see how that neighbourhood transforms in the next few years.
