6th Street Yogurt, Kemps Corner- Review


Yogurt has never been a part of my choice in desserts. I prefer ice creams or milkshakes to gelato or yogurt. 6th Street Yogurt was not on my ‘To try’ list but since I was in the area, I thought of trying it anyway.

Flavours & Toppings– We went on a day when they had just three flavours of yogurt- Original, Cranberry-Watermelon and Orange Cheesecake. I tasted all 3 and chose to have Cranberry- Watermelon and my friend Fash had the Original. Waise toh they have more flavours but that day some machine had gotten spoilt because of which we could only make a choice from 3 flavours. Both flavours tasted great and were thick and creamy. They have a good variety of toppings- chocolate-based to real fruits to marshmallows, etc. I chose the Ferrero Rocher sauce which was yummy yum yum with my Cranberry-Watermelon yogurt and Fash chose MnMs with her Original yogurt which was quite nice too. They don’t do kanjoosi with toppings which is a very good thing. They also have smoothies, waffles and parfaits which I would like to try some time for sure.

Ambience & Service– Located at Kemps Corner, near Gangar Opticians, 6th Street Yogurt is a small place where you can just buy your yogurt and get out. The staff is courteous and let you try the yogurt and even toppings before you make your choice.

Prices– They have various sizes of cups to choose from depending on how much you want to have. Rs. 40 for a small cup, Rs. 70 for a medium one, Rs.140 for a large one and Rs.180 for an extra large one. We both had the one for Rs. 40 and that much was perfect for a dessert after our meal. Toppings are Rs. 20 for Regular and Rs. 25 for Premium ones.  So, we paid Rs. 65 each for our respective yogurts with a topping each. Now, considering other yogurt places, this one’s not only good taste-wise but the most reasonable too.

Verdict– Value for money and Yummy in my Tummy! I recommend!

iCremeso, Fort- Review


Here’s a new ice-cream place in town! What sets it apart from the others? Read further to find out.

Not just another ice cream– The thing about this place is that the ice cream is made in front of you. No, it’s not like Ice Stone Factory where you can choose add -ons to the ice cream and mix them together. Out here, it’s made from scratch, meaning the milk you choose (normal/yogurt/low-fat/soya) is put in a machine and some nitrogen gas is used to freeze it into ice cream after which the flavour you choose is added from an injection type of tube. Then you can choose toppings to make your ice cream yummier. All the flavours they have here don’t contain any preservative which is a good thing. As of now, I don’t think they have waffle cones but I hope they introduce them soon!

Where is it? – iCremeso is located at Fort, opposite the famous Sterling Cineplex. It shares space with Billo’s Café and you might find it a little small but its ok for an ice cream place.

What we had– As of now they only have the normal milk and yogurt and only serve in medium and large cups. I had the Chocolate Hazelnut flavour and Oreo sprinkles as a topping. I really liked it but wished it tasted more chocolaty. One friend had the Orange Toblerone flavour with Gummy bears. Both my friends liked it but I didn’t because of the orange taste. Another friend had the Raspberry flavour with MnMs. I liked it but liked mine better! 😛 There are many more flavours to try- Blueberry, passion fruit, Biscottino, Bubble gum, Green tea, etc.

How much? – The small cup is for Rs. 65, medium for Rs. 90 and large for Rs. 140. I must admit one thing- the scoop is a little small for the price. We all had medium cups thinking they were small.

Verdict– I definitely will go back and try some more flavours! Go try!
