To be honest, after our experience at Menchie’s, I was hesitant to take Mr. to another frozen yogurt bar. But then, I really can’t resist the temptation of facing so many frozen yogurt flavours and toppings, and building a frozen yogurt to my liking. With a deal voucher, I took Mr. to the Qoola at Metrotown.

Qoola Metrotown


Each Qoola location seems to have different product offerings. At the Metrotown store, you can get frozen yogurt, smoothie or their “wannawafel” (aka Belgian waffle). We just went for the frozen yogurt. There were a total of 10 flavours to choose from; unlike Menchie’s, they didn’t have a system in place for you to sample the flavours. We chose to get a little bit of Pure Organic, Lemon Organic, Pumpkin, Strawberry and Chocolate, and not knowing how they taste, we’re basically in for a surprise.

10 Flavours to Choose From

It seems like they have fewer topping options than what we saw at Menchie’s. (more…)

Menchie’s is not a new addition to the frozen yogurt scene. It’s been in Vancouver for more than 1.5 years now but it’s only recently that I visited one of its locations for the first time. I can’t believe the cute little Menchie’s icon didn’t get me to its door sooner!

Mr. and I went to the flagship location on Cambie near the Canada Line station. It was a hot Saturday afternoon, so it was no surprise that the store was packed.


The idea of Menchie’s is similar to Qoola. First you select your own flavour(s) of yogurt at the yogurt bar. Because they charge you by weight, you can choose just one flavour or a bit of everything. They actually place little paper cups for you to sample the 12 yogurt flavours before committing to any flavours.  To be honest, it was tempting to just try as much yogurt as we can then sneak out of the place (and I bet some people do do that). But nah, we want the full experience!

Continuing our journey from Part 1 of the Dishcrawl Kitsilano adventure, we took a short walk and stopped at Romer’s Burger Bar. When we sat down, I only had very little room for more food, so I was secretly hoping that they would give us small portions. Thankfully, they gave us the right amount of food (I know, it’s so defeating the purpose, but I didn’t want to waste any more food either!).

It was a trio of a slider-size Man’s Man Burger, mini Fries with Fresh Chopped Garlic & Sea Salt, and a side of Deep Fried Pickled Jalapeno. The Man’s Man Burger was quite good; the patty was juicy and I liked the crunch from the onion strings. Overall I did find the burger to be a bit salty, but I wasn’t quite sure what caused it. Could be the mustard or smoked alder salts. The Garlic Fries was sooo good! They weren’t double-fried but it’s light and crispy. I’m not a huge garlic person but for some reason I found these fries super addictive. (more…)
