On my way out of the Topshop popup at Queen St West and Soho (parking lot, NW corner) I was offered some frozen yogurt with my choice of strawberry, chocolate, or caramel sauce and the option of a crunchy almond/caramel topping. I was already on my way to Little Nicky‘s for some doodle-time and donuts, but I was never one to say no to free frozen treats!
With Little Nicky’s door less than 50m away, I started to walk. Really. Slowly. I figured that I’d only eat a couple bites before moving on to donuts. I mean, how good could it be? It was free at some fashion thing! By the time I made my way across the light, I had to extend my walk. The frozen yogurt wasn’t sour like a lot of its ilk can be. It was also creamy, but not too rich, and astonishingly good (minor note: a wee bit icy). The topping added a nice nutty and toasty crunch to things. I spooned the pools of caramel sauce at the bottom of the cup onto my tongue, trying to consume the tasty and (subsequently) soupy mess. I was surprised at how good it all was.
It wasn’t until I was browsing through Twitter while sipping on my cappuccino (raspberry-flavoured donuts today!) that I realized why it was so high-quality – it was from xococava! Nice. So if you’re in the area, get your mini-sundae scoop until 8pm tonight and then from 10-5 tomorrow (Sunday).
Not something to go out of your way for, but figured people would be in the area for 1000 Tastes too. FYI, the area's a bit of a zoo with the MMVA's gearing up.
