Weekends always find my family in the mall deliberating on where to eat and what new food to try. So the kids and I were quite excited when we were invited to the launch of Italian brand YOGORINO at the ground floor of Glorietta 3. While my teener perused the menu, my 7 year old daughter made a beeline for the Gelata Wheel. “Cool! I want to try the milk chocolate, Mommy,” she said as she excitedly pointed to the rotating gelato containers.
Before long, our orders arrived. Two orders of gelato in cups (milk chocolate and tiramisu), two orders of yogurt (pistachio and brownie with almonds), french toast (melty caramel and nuts) and the fluffiest pancakes we’ve ever tasted (banana chocolate). We finished off the two pieces of french toast in record time. It had just the right mount of crunch, was not too buttery and our choice of toppings perfectly complemented the bread base. This one is a winner! Banana chocolate is the most popular variant of the pancakes. I recommend this for the hungrier snackers and it would make a perfect pair with YOGORINO’s plain gelato as it is quite heavy and filling. As for the gelato, its natural, smooth and creamy flavor is a hit with my kids.
What I like about this brand is that it offers sweet options as well as healthy ones. The yogurt, for example, is prepared with the freshest produce of the day. There’s no guilt in indulging because 100 grams of YOGORINO’s frozen yogurt only has 131 calories! And because I’m having some digestion problems recently, it’s good to know that it is also rich in probiotic enzymes that boosts the immune system and aids in good digestion. Imagine enjoying the same goodness and taste of Italian gelato with fewer calories.
As an ode to our Pinoy taste and to give us reprieve from the warm weather, customers can aslo enjoy a wide selection of tapioca drinks (milk-based, tea based and yogurt based). I heard that more products will be coming out soon and the best news is that a branch will soon open in Molito. That’s great for us Southerners!
For now, head on to Glorietta 3 and try YOGORINO. The café style set-up gives you a good view of the nearby Papermoom mille crepe store— the ube is a must try. But more on that in my upcoming post.
