Yoğart @ 175 Bencoolen Street

"Fashion Your Enjoyment."

“Fashion Your Enjoyment.”

Yoğart is the newest kid on the block that offers delectable frozen treats, more specifically frozen yoghurt. Having only opened yesterday, the place has already been compared to the likes of that well-known frozen yoghurt brand that is LlaoLlao. The owner of the establishment seems to have graduated from Carpigiani Gelato School & hence Yoğart was born. Apart from your usual frozen yoghurt with sauces & toppings, they also offer yoghurt popsicles & waffles.

Yoğart is situated in Burlington Square, right opposite LASALLE College of the Arts, beside Geisha Specialty Coffee. Its prime location is sure to be a joy for the art students, making frozen yoghurt easily accessible. The yoghurt shop is actually quite small, with only minimal seating that can at most house up to 6 people. (Best to order & eat on the go, unless you are opting for their waffles.) The interior decor is quite nicely done, with eye-catching typographic treatments on the wall made out of moss.

Cups, cups, cups.

Look at all of them popsicles!

Food
Yoğart currently offers artisan frozen yoghurt in varying sizes, fresh fruit toppings & sauce selections, including a yoghurt size named “Bliss”. They also have a range of yummy frozen yoghurt popsicles; a quick & easy treat for people in a rush or something to nibble on while chatting with friends. The fourth thing on Yoğart’s menu is their waffles paired with frozen yoghurt & toppings.

Prices here are fairly average for frozen yoghurt shops. I don’t see much of a difference between here, Nookie or LlaoLlao. One bonus point is that they offer a discount to students. (And faculty members as well if I’m not mistaken.)

Two Toppings ($5.20) A few of my friends & I went to try Yoğart on their opening day. One of them decided to go with their two toppings size. I really liked the addition of the biscuit on top with their brand; a nice way of making themselves stand out. While my friend thought the yoghurt was pretty nice, she stated that she still preferred LlaoLlao & felt that the sauce over the yoghurt seem to blend better with the frozen dessert from LlaoLlao.

It seemed odd that it wasn't add consistently. (Perhaps it was just forgotten.) Nevertheless, this marked the first time that my friend was trying frozen yoghurt. (Yes, FIRST!) She quite liked it & was excited to try other frozen yoghurt in the future after this first experience of hers.

Bliss ($6.20) You're thinking it, I'm thinking it, my friends & I were joking about it... so I'll just say it. This looks a whole lot like the Sanum from LlaoLlao. Similarly to the Sanum, you get a choice of 3 fresh fruit toppings, 1 sauce & 1 crunchy bite for the Bliss over at Yoğart.

Artisanal Popsicle ($2.80) Apart from all your usual soft serve frozen yoghurt, Yoğart offers a range of popsicles as well! I decided to give their Tangy Raspberry a try & it was pretty good.  This seemed to be a popular choice from people looking for a quick frozen treat fix.

Premium Waffle ($8.80) Their premium waffle choice comes with 2 fruit toppings apart from the frozen yoghurt & 1 sauce. I liked the waffles here; they were quite fluffy & soft and was perfectly done. I do feel that ice-cream seems to pair better with waffles though, but of course if you're looking for a healthier option, frozen yoghurt is the way to go.

Apart from your one sauce, the waffles also come with maple syrup. (A shout-out to my friend who served as my hand model.) This actually marks the first time I've had frozen yoghurt with waffles. I don't remember seeing it offered anywhere else either, though one of my friends mentioned that they have it over at Sogurt. It was slightly disappointing that the staff got my choice of sauce wrong. I asked for Coco Bianco but received Dark Chocolate instead.

Worth A Visit/Revisit?
Apart from the blunders regarding the food which I’ll overlook as it was their opening day, Yoğart definitely seems like a keeper. It’s prime locale will make it a hotspot for the students of LASALLE, not to mention the nearby white collar workers of the district. I can’t say that Yoğart is better than the many other frozen yoghurt brands out there, but they’re pretty good on their own. My friends & I are actually quite excited to become frequent customers of the place due to its location. Definitely worth checking out.
