UYU Ice Cream opened over the summer and they’ve been getting rave reviews! I’ve seen them all over my Instagram feed with their weekly rotation of flavours. I actually went after I ate lunch at Tacofino (despite being super full already). I couldn’t help it since it was like two blocks away! #foodieproblems
The store is pretty minimalistic looking and according to what I’ve read, they didn’t have any seating at all before but when I was there, they seem to have added two small benches along the walls now.
I’ve seen a lot of flavours that I would like to try and on the day I went they had Earl Grey! Yay! It’s probably one of my favourite flavours of anything!
It costs $4.75 to get your soft serve plain and it will come with a drizzle of your choice. To be honest, I wasn’t really interested in their toppings since they were like … more healthy like dried fruits and nuts and stuff like that. I’d rather save my $0.75 and just eat my soft serve plain then!
The Earl Grey was light with a creamy texture and it didn’t melt fast!!! The flavour was subtle but definitely there. We chose the condensed milk drizzle which was a good choice since it added a bit of sweetness to it. I’m pretty sure condensed milk will go well with any flavour! The portion was a decent size too.
While I did enjoy the ice cream, I wouldn’t say I was blown away since I’ve had Earl Grey flavours at Earnest and Rain or Shine. Of course it’s hard to compare them but I do think it’s a good addition to the neighbourhood and I will add them to my ice cream rotation. I probably prefer slightly stronger flavours and also they only serve 3 different flavours every week so there’s not much variety. It’s probably a good idea to check what flavours they have before you go.
