Yogurt World Convoy St SD

MVNYC | Feb 22, 200712:59 PM     92

I have always hated frozen yogurt. To me it always seemed like a pale low fat version of ice cream. Whole milk, heavy cream and butter have always been my standards. Also grwoing up i always had really sour Albanian yogurt, so frozen yogurt really did nothing for me

So anyways on my trip to O Briens last week i noticed a new frozen yogurt shop opening in the same shopping center. Needless to say, i was not too excited. I did take note of the fact that it was operated by asians in SD's Asian area. This to me semed odd as i didnt know this was a product tied into the community. What further piqued my interest was the article in the dining section of the NY Times about Korean frozen yogurt places in LA. This article noted how these places were taking frozen yogurt back to its origins as literally frozen yogurt, not a sweetened less fatty ice cream.

So after meeting a former colleague today at Obriens for lunch(the Port Weizen Bock is fantastic by the way), I stopped by this place for a sample. when i walked in the guy behind the counter explained to me the set up. You take a cup and fill it with whatever flavour you like, you can mix if you wish then fill it with toppings and pay by weight. There were a number of flavours, including four sour asian ones. Taking my cue from the article i filled my cup up with half plain and half asian pear. Of the available toppings i put on blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and sweetened cocunut shavings. Alli have to say is wow. The yogurt tasted exaclty like that, like yogurt. Not sweetened soft serve ice cream but yogurt. That wonderful sourness of the yogurt worked really well with the whole berries(not in syrup) and the coconut. You got the rich sourness from the yogurt plus the sweetn berries. This is good for the same reason that cheesecake is good, or blueberries and buttermilk is. The pear was good too, tart and sour at the same time. I will be back
