Seeing the oodles of customers flock in and around this new dig suggested this was the newest, hip and trendy frogurt establishment in town, and a new place to be seen, so an eventual visit was made the other night.
Honestly, I'm better off with fewer options to pick from, so when the window cases and menus displayed all the possible choices, I was floored. I eventually took the safe route and chose one of their specials, "The W", while a tag alone friend made his own. Our creation started with a base of green tea frogurt, topped with fresh blueberries, some sort of fruit snack-like, blandish chewy things and topped with a boysenberry sauce. The frogurt had a great, smooth texture with very mild undertones of the green tea, though not a particular fan, it could've been stronger still. It didn't hold it's body well even for a cool night - it was already turning into soup when we left to enjoy at English Bay - and there's nothing I hate more than melting ice cream/gelato/frogurt..whatever. The chewy things I did not care for and certainly did not go well at all with the other toppings. Our friend went a little daring with his incorporating cereal, chocolate and fruit together - well received, if not clashing. A note about the sizes, while my gf and I split a small, I couldn't see a discernable difference between ours and our friend's medium.
Service was friendly if not a little too perky but I suppose the sugary stuff brings out the smiles in everyone.
While the space is totally cool and today, it's starting to show it's age on the floor, scuffs and marring. They could've at least swept a little; bits and pieces of rubbish scattered.
While I agree the frogurt base product is excellent, you certainly pay for it, and with additional sizing and toppings, you can easily nail the $10 mark. While I like the idea of having a lot of toppings to choose from, some don't compliment at all. Keep it simple, stupid.
