After we went to Le Relais de Venise for lunch (great steak frites there), we decided to have some frozen yogurt at Culture An American Yogurt Company in the West Village. This small joint manufactures its own yogurt and frozen yogurt, with no preservatives or additives, right in the back where you can see the large tanks. And when they are making yogurt, the light is on...
There, you can either choose one of their specials where you will just specify which frozen yogurt you want (hence the name "toppings" that is far fetched considering it is a full combo) or you can build your own. I was not sure what to get at first and was going for banana. But, as I was not set on it and it was unsweetened, I decided to try try it: well that was a good move as I did not like it at all. It was like a very tart version of dried bananas. So, I finally got their Key Lime Pie seasonal combo with their original frozen yogurt. It was composed of fresh key lime custard, graham crackers and lime syrup. This was really good, definitely meeting my expectations: the citrusy flavor was there, adding some acidity to the perfectly tart yogurt.
Jodi went for their chocolate frozen yogurt with chocolate sprinkles and coconut. Also delicious, their chocolate yogurt was very chocolatey.
We went back two weeks after and tried their oreo frozen yogurt that was also very good. With coconut and chocolate sprinkles for Jodi and oreo cookies for me.
That was very good, better than Pinkberry or Red Mango. I love the fact that Culture An American Yogurt Company offers seasonal toppings, allowing customers to change based on their mood. It is a great place to know and it will not be the last time I'll be there...
Enjoy (I did)!
