Last Froyo Post. I swear! (At least for awhile...)

So the roomie and are are continuing our new Monday-Play Day tradition. Except for today didn't go quite as planned. First we tried to go to Sushi-Ko for lunch, but because someone in the apartment lacks attention to detail (that someone being me), we didn't realize that Sushi-Ko is open for lunch every day of the work week except for Mondays. Which was such a bummer because we took a the metro and bus to get up there! I mean this was a bit of a trek for 2 girls with no car who are too cheap to take a cab. Lunch was saved because Cafè Bonaparte (review to come shortly) was right down the street. Erin and I adore Napoleon, and have always wanted to check out Cafè Bonaparte. It being is Glover Park had deterred us up until now, but since we were already in the neighborhood, it worked out well.

Well after lunch we had planned to check out the new Jim Henson exhibit at the Smithsonian which just opened last weekend. (You should all try to go!) Unfortunately Erin's uber flakey boss, who promised to take care of submitting payroll so Erin could have the day off, went missing. Not really surprising knowing her boss, but disappointing nonetheless. So instead of going down to the mall we had to make our way over to Erin's work so she could take care of payroll.

So after this we were both a little bummed about how the day didn't turn out quite as expected, and so we decided we needed some froyo to pick us up. If you remember, last Monday I had introduced Erin to TangySweet. Naturally this Monday it was time to check out Mr. Yogato. Now I know I just posted abut how Mr. Yogato had all these different flavors, but none of them really had a ton of flavor. Weeeeeeeeeeell I think they read Search for J Street because both of the flavors today (peach and mojito) were awesome. They managed to actually taste like their namesake and still be refreshing in the tangy yogurt sort of way. The mojito yogurt I tried today tasted nothing like the one I had the other week. So keep up the good work Mr. Yogato! I am glad I came back for seconds. My opinion of your kitschy yogurt shop has been elevated from satisfactory to faaaaabulous! (Side note: that is also a picture of me with the cute froyo cup that I couldn't get a picture of before because that couple had to be all lovey dovey right in front of it. But good things come to those who wait, and this time I got to hog the smiley frozen yogurt cartoon!)

Also, on our brief shopping excursion in Georgetown (Mom I already got your Christmas gift! Aren't you so proud of me for not waiting until the last minute?) I discovered that yet another Pinkberry knock off is coming to town! There will be an Ice Berry opening on the east end of M street at some point. So keep your eyes open for that. I will of course be on top of reviewing it as soon as possible. For the reader's sake of course. I eat all this frozen yogurt so you can be informed about your best options. It's totally selfless. Really, I mean that...


(Doesn't this cartoon lemon from Mr. Yogato look just like Stewie from Family Guys? Erin thought it looked more like Arnold from Hey Arnold.)

You are right...we did make the flavors, stronger (esp peach) due to customer feedback, including the J-Street blog. I am really happy you like it. Hope to see you in the store!

Wow, Mr. Yogato himself read my rambling about frozen yogurt... I do love the change in flavor intensity! I will definitely be back quite a bit, especially during this 90 degree heat.
