Either way, I was glad to be able to be in and out of the bustling restaurant within five minutes (or even less, actually).
For $4.50 (or $5.10 with tax), I would definitely return if I happen to be in the area and developing an insane craving. (I must make a mental note to to request less ice, as one third of my cup was observed to solely contain ice after the liquid had been drained.)
Later that day, I had intended to attend pinkberry's Grand Opening event in Square One. While the event page noted that the event would begin at 2:00 PM, the gate had still not yet been lifted by 4:00 PM. Apparently, the free froyo and artist meet-and-greet would not be taking place until later in the evening at 6:00 PM.
The original plan had been to meet up with one of my friends to enjoy the yogurt together, but it didn't seem as if Plan A would be executed as planned, as we both needed to head back before then.
After a great deal of confusion, and the unnecessary paying of parking, we managed to located the shop.
"Have you guys been to YoYo's before?"
"Nope." ("But I've been to enough frozen yogurt places to know what I'm supposed to do.", I silently added.)
He then went on to explain the concept of self-serve frozen yogurt, enthusiastically directing our attention to the various topping choices and flavours available. This went on for a while, and throughout this, I mentally made a note to make my silent addition outspoken should such a circumstance re-occur.
I impatiently asked for sample cups, as they were not laid out neatly like Menchies or Yogurty's. The owner proceed to grab a few from a cupboard located at ground level, only to have the stack fall through as he closed its door. Noticing my intent glance at the bottle cap-sized cups sprawled on the wooden floor, he casually brushed it off saying "It's okay."
We tried the Red Velvet and Strawberry flavours, which both proved to be alright.
I shall definitely be taking my business to pinkberry, or even Yogurty's (where I can use SPC!) next time.
