It's kind of ironic, really, since he's usually the one decked out in bright blue or highlighter orange garments, whereas I lean more towards muted colours out of sheer laziness. (There, I said it.)
The take-home purchase was bagged for me immediately; the team set out to craft my dine-in order shortly after
I paid particular attention to the monogrammed "R" at the corner of plank - it was a simple design that incorporated a sprig of rosemary into the letter.
The Rainbow Bagels themselves were an item of supreme interest: an odd "wheaty" aroma floated about them, and they were less spongy than the standard beige-toned variations. Admittedly, I was slightly dismayed at the inferiority of the discovery. I had taken to trying Montreal-style bagels in Vancouver when, in fact, I could have driven over considering my permanent residence along the East Coast. Nonetheless, I have great faith that Rosemary Rocksalt's non-gimmicky creations are far superior in flavour and texture (and fresher too).
Near the front of the shop was an umbrella bucket, water station, and clean assortment of condiments and plastic utensils.
I decided to move quickly, as I simply wanted to find the ice cream shop and, for a lack of better words, get out of there.
Striding across Abbott twice, I immediately became puzzled at Google Maps' instructions. UYU was nowhere to be found even at the exact spot where I had passed by.
The world inside UYU was completely different: pure white and serene, with an abundance of triangular elements. The member of staff that served me was the same cheery girl that had picked up my phone call: she introduced me to the various items offered and went on to explain the current selection of soft serve flavours.
(Fun fact: UYU means "milk" in Korean. Recall the "Milky Couple" in Dream High!)
To fully experience the summer limited flavour, I chose to skip the toppings. Although, freeze-dried fruit do make for an interesting crunch.
My sole concern would be the location. Had the environment not constantly instilled fear in my soul with every step of the journey, I'd definitely revisit to try other flavours (and toppings).
