Yo-Chi Frozen Yogurt, Carlton
A huge store at Yo-Chi and delivered on my expectations of frozen yoghurt-based delight whilst in the inner north. My friend recommended Yo-Chi as a light finish for a brunch whilst in the neighbourhood and I was pleasantly surprised with the range and ambience of the locale. There are twelve flavours of varying profiles and no less than twenty topping options that feel considerably more “gourmet” the the usual. My bowl cup thing ended up a bit of a mess (not sure if that’s simply reflective of my serving skills) with flicks of mixed berry, original recipe, salted butterscotch, peanut butter and classic vanilla.
On the toppings route I went for mango mochi, zebra coconut (that’s with some chocolate) almonds and a few jelly balls. For a fat-reduced alternative to gelato it definitely sticks and the peanut butter was worthy of particular mention. The salted butterscotch was bit too weak for my tastes but the others were nice enough. I quite like the open space of the venue at Yo-Chi, there isn’t a heap of options this way that’s good for a proper sit-down. Worth checking out to see a froyo operation of this scale, at least.
