Got Yogurt? Now there is Flo: Self-Serve Yogurt in ApguThursday, September 03, 2009
Here is my Flo cup full of Chocolate Brownie, regular, and cheesecake yogurt. My toppings? Yogurt raisins and m & m's
In LA, it's the hottest new yogurt concept. Oh, if you've been in Korea for a while, you might not be aware that the Pinkberry and the Red Mango Frozen Yogurt Wars are over.
The winner? Nobody. Why? because Americans got bored with it and moved on to something better. The new rage is self-serve yogurt where you go up and make your own yogurt creation with your choice of toppings. When I was in the states, I stopped into one and it was just jammed packed with people. There was a line out the door and people were just filling their cups with all the different yogurts and toppings.
Now Flo decided to bring this concept to Korea and I am a huge fan.
I ran across this place while I was heading through Apgujeong. It's got a sleek and minimalist like a shiny new iPod and you've got many different types of yogurt and toppings to choose from.
The types of yogurt are:
Strawberry and Banana
Then you have a choice of about 50 toppings to choose from and you just pay by weight. It's 2,800 won for 100 grams. My first run, my cost came to about 5,100 won and it was worth every penny.
Do you think this could be the next big thing in Korea?
I think so. Now I hope they have a 1 price for all you can eat one day, because I'm totally there.
They speak English
Directions: Go through the Rodeo gates by Paris Croissant (It's the gate across from the Galleria) Go three blocks and turn at Banila co (It's right across from Puma). It's about 50 meters down.
