Headed over to Yo-Good Singapore after our tempura donburi meal at Tensho because we wanted to end our lunch on a refreshing note.
Following the massive revamping of Centrepoint, the grand dame of shopping mall along Orchard Road now spots a much needed facelift with quite a number of new F&B tenants drumming up some excitement. We've checked out Honolulu, Souper Tang, Tensho and of course, Yo-Good, which has its origins in Canada. Singapore is the first South East Asia franchise outpost.
Specializing in Frozen Yogurt, Smoothies, Juices and Popsicles, Yo-Good was exactly what we needed.
Froyo is good? Yo-Good? We think so, as Yo-Good's frozen yogurt is supposedly non-fat and its flavors does not come from artificial sweeteners. It could be a healthier choice (over ice cream) too as yogurt itself contains live probiotic bacterial cultures which aids in digestion.
Customers can help themselves to the said beneficial goodness as much as they want from the four froyo dispensers, flavors available on our day of visit were Chocolate, Vanilla, Bubble Gum and Mango. There is an array of toppings including Fresh Fruits and Berries, Dried Fruits and Nuts, Chocolate, as well as Candies to oomph up the froyo enjoyment with varied colors, taste and textures.
How much you take determines how much you pay, with prices at $3.30 per 100grams. The large, bigger-than-my-palm, one-sized only cup is
Well, at least the cup is FREE...
Our final combination was a huge double swirl of bubble gum and mango froyo, fancified with fruits, chocolate and gummies which all added up to a little over $10 (guess we were a bit carried away lol).
The texture of the froyo itself was smooth and creamy, without the icky icy bite. We appreciate that the taste wasn't overly sweet too, but I guess we overdid it with too much of those sugary toppings. Felt a little guilty when Boss D reminded us that "if it's blue, it's not healthy".Oops...
As Yo-Good adopts a takeaway concept, the store area isn't big but functionally sufficient. Hard to miss its presence as it's located at street level just outside the mall. With the recent sweltering heat, passerbys might just be enticed to give the Yo-Good's cold offerings a try.
