John X, the owner of MooBerry, kindly invited me and my wife to sample the menu. John and I go back a long way as we were in the same grade in high school, so I was more than happy to drop by and do a write-up of his store. But I was too full from dinner at Osteria di Russo & Russo beforehand (see review), so I could only sample the four froyo flavours on offer this visit (being original, watermelon, tiramisu and coconut). MooBerry also have other dessert offerings such as Belgian waffles, churros and chocolate soufflé. These do sound enticing, but they will need to wait for another day.
|Coconut affogato (minus the coconut shavings)|
For me, the best froyo flavour by a long way was the coconut flavour, which I had as a coconut affogato, a MooBerry signature. The coconut affogato is the perfect winter treat with a shot of warm espresso poured over coconut froyo. The wonderful aroma of freshly brewed coffee will draw most people in, and for me the bitter flavour of coffee is a great match with the smooth, creamy texture of the froyo and its sweet, refreshing coconut flavours.

We thought MooBerry has a good dessert offering, with more variety than your usual froyos and toppings at the chains. It is definitely a breath of fresh air to see a non-franchise froyo store do its thing and use real ingredients. Next time I drop by, I will need to make sure I have more stomach room so I can actually try more of the menu.
I sampled these items as a guest of John X and MooBerry.
