Twist Monkey, Nariman Point & FYI, Churchgate- Review

Roochster

Yogurts are the ‘In’ thing right now and I just thought it was better to write 2 reviews in 1 and fill you in on the latest ones in town. So, here they are.

Twist Monkey-Review:  Twist Monkey is a small stall that sells frozen yogurt located at Spoon Food Court at Inox, Nariman Point. I had Belgium Chocolate (delicious) in a mini cup (Rs. 40) with Ferrero Rocher sauce as topping (Rs. 40). The combination was good. I really liked the taste of the yogurt. The next time I went there I had the Honey Nut Crunch flavour (Rs. 40) with Mocha Ganache- bitter and tasty (Rs.40) as the topping. Now the part that sucks is that the cheapest toppings which are for Rs. 20 are just syrups. All the good toppings are for Rs. 40 so you have to end up spending Rs. 80 to have the smallest sized yogurt with a topping. I’ve also tried their other flavours- Blueberry- ok, Strawberry- yum!

Verdict– Twist Monkey is yummy! Most of their yogurts taste good and so do their toppings but I wish the pricing was better.

Rating– 4/5

FYI (Frozen Yogurt Inc.)- Review: FYI decided to be smart and locate themselves at Cafe Markiv’s, Churchgate where the college crowd is. Out of the ones I tried (Strawberry- superb, Blueberry- bad, Original- good) I thought their Fruitella flavour was yum so I decided to go for that (Rs. 40). Now the good part is that you pay per topping. So 1 topping is for Rs. 30, 2 for Rs. 40 and unlimited for Rs. 60 which is a fair deal. With my mini yogurt, I decided to try the red velvet topping (Rs. 30) which was not that great. As a promotional deal, they also added some Nutella sauce which made the bad taste of red velvet go away to a large extent.

Verdict– FYI is good and so is the pricing. Their yogurts taste great but they definitely should look at getting better toppings.

Rating– 3.5/5
