Today we finally go onto Kowloon side of Hong Kong; I realized that I may have been very selective in choosing spots that were in proximity to me. Also not just that, I prefer writing about places or food that I get a click, when my inner conscious says, “Holy, I need to blog about this,” after having a spoonful of something delicious or when I walk into a gorgeous place. Well, I was hanging out in TST this weekend since I had to kill an hour, waiting for my lazy-ass friend who’s always late. There I found an amazing frozen yogurt cafe, inside K11 Building (which basically is a building-full of cool design shops, cafes, and cuisine).

It is a very small cafe as you can see from the picture, with only 4 bar stools to sit on, but the first thing came into my mind wasn’t about the size of this place because I just couldn’t get my eyes off the displayed cups of yogurt ice creams garnished with fruits, granolas, biscuits, chocolates, and many more toppings.

Price ranges from $47-70ish depending on the toppings you get but compared to its massive size, price seems very reasonable. (Without even a slight exaggeration, I’d honestly say that these cups of fro-yo here are much bigger than Venti size Starbucks frappuccino.) Layers of toppings and ice cream are in a very generous amount and they just softly melt in your mouth. These are recommended selections by the chef but feel free to choose your own topping next to the counter where there is an open kitchen.

This is what I got, called Vanila Sky. There are blue berries in the very bottom, and then fro-yo, and pieces of fresh mango, diced granolas, and then fro-yo on top with vanila syrup and almond biscuits. Too much of a dessert in the afternoon? Don’t worry too much. They proudly present you with frozen yogurt ice cream that is healthier than ice-cream with calcium, low fat, live cultures and antioxidants. Plus, it’s worth the calories but because I don’t personally like the guilty pleasure I recommend you sharing a cup with your friends; you would still get enough with half the price. And you might want to check out other kinds of desserts they offer as well;)
