were at Park Hyatt Jeddah to see the Edge of Arabia art exhibition and decided to drop
by Yogette, which is having their soft opening these days.Yogette emphasises that it uses all natural non-fat yoghurt. We went on to order
a Mango flavoured fro-yo but were told that they'd just run out, so went we went
for plain fro-yo, with a topping of fresh raspberries, blueberries, and chunks
of Cadbury's Flake. ( I will always associate Flake with ice cream, I've had my
fair share of soft ice cream with a stick of Flake in London)
fro-you was right consistency, and not too sweet, the fresh fruit and chocolate
added an interesting addition to texture and flavor. You are free to choose
your own toppings, the number of toppings depends on the size of the fro-yo,
the smallest size has 4 toppings to go with it. There are nuts, chocolates, and
my favourite fresh berries and fruit to choose from. It is rare to find fresh
raspberries or even blueberries, or black berries here.
ordered a blueberry flavoured bubble tea, and my Mum ordered a pineapple
flavoured bubble tea. We were later informed that they'd run out of pineapple.
So we replaced it with kiwi flavoured bubble tea which was thankfully
chose to sit outside, as there was a wonderful breeze blowing, and the Jeddah
Marina looked particularly serene from the terrace. The décor inside is white with
a splash of neon colours and interactive tabletops. Seems like a tech savy
bubble tea arrived mine was garnished with a blueberry and Mum's with slice of
kiwi respectively. Bubble teas are of
Far East Asian origin and can be chosen from a choice of black or green tea and
additional fruit flavours. It is a type of ice tea and gets the term bubble from
the tapioca pearl balls that are at the bottom of the drink, and which provide
a chewy contrast to the sweetness and texture of the drink.
The drink was
served accompanied by an oversized straw to enable the tapioca pearl balls to
fit in your straw. The tapioca balls are soft and unexpectedly squishy and
chewy. The tea was just the right sweetness and had a great fresh tangy flavor.
I suggest that everyone should challenge their taste buds and try Yogette's bubble tea at least once, as it is a new
experience when it comes to drinks in Jeddah, but you may want to wait until their soft opening is over, in order to be able to enjoy
the full variety of flavours.
Update: They have their grand opening on 1st of March 2012, don't miss it.
