Maybe if you cross your fingers, touch wood and scrunch your face up like you really really really want summer to return, it will. And when it does, a nice way to cool off would be to try some of Yu-foria’s frozen yoghurt. The shop’s just opened recently at Covent Garden (downstairs near the pesky opera singing buskers). Last week, Londonist swung by; had a chat with Yu-foria’s young and enterprising owner Leo Bedford; and sampled some of the goods. It’s a pleasant little place, not only white and plastic-y as one might expect but cozy and hip with exposed brick, hanging basket chairs and oak seating making for an organic feel. Leo’s pretty hip too: he’s a likeable chap in his mid-twenties keen to make a real go at this new venture. And the yoghurt? Yum! We tried a cup of the 100% fat free plain flavour with some pistachios sprinkled on top (Yu-foria has all sorts of toppings). It was delish and, considering we tried it on one of those hot days last week, very refreshing. We also sampled a couple of spoonfuls of the blueberry yoghurt and were impressed with its natural (not super puckery or too sweet) flavour.
