Good yogurt, many toppings, the promise of waffles: new soft wares offered by 6th Street Yogurt are worth the hard drive up perpetually-packed Kemps Corner. Get stuck in jam, we say.
Launched last week in a tiny, candy striped storefront, 6th Street Yogurt is still working out teething problems, and plans to offer a full menu including smoothies and waffles by the end of the week. For now, you have to make do with four flavors of yogurt (original, chocolate, strawberry and raspberry cheesecake) and a sea of gem-coloured toppings.
Of the four yogurt flavours, raspberry cheesecake is the clear winner, citrusy and tart. Strawberry is good too, fresh and not-too-sweet, transporting us instantly to the berry fields in Mahableshwar that we stomped over as kids. We would have liked the original flavour better had we not tasted a vastly superior version at Sugardaddy, a dessert place opening up at Chowpatty (stay tuned!) and chocolate is not bitter enough, with an unpleasantly sour aftertaste. YogurtBay, across the Peddar Road flyover, does a much better version.
From the many vats of toppings (sprinkles, marshmallow, granola, fresh fruit including kiwi and strawberry) we liked Ferrero Rocher, a crunchy mix of Nutella and nuts; and rich, jammy dark cherry compote. Stay away though from peach compote, bitter and tasting vaguely of plastic.
All of these were served with smiling efficiency by an eager, excited staff (we suspect they were the owners), which answered our deluge of questions with patience and eventually, a touch of suspicion. Why 6th Street Yogurt? Named after sixth street in Austen, Texas, where one of the founders lived; How many toppings? Too many to count, new ones added every day; How fat-free is the yogurt? No cream used, so don’t worry about calories; When will the rest of the menu kick in? By the weekend, at the latest.
Okay, we’ll be back then.
Getting there: 192 Chinoy Mansion, opp. St. Stephen's church, Warden Road, starts at Rs 50 for a cup of yogurt.
