Update Feb 4, 2011: This restaurant is now closed.
After reading some of the comments left on our initial post on Tuttimelon, we decided to go back unannounced to see how service is for “regular” folks :wink:.
So I think the main concern was that the Original yogurt was icy and not smooth enough. Also that they didn’t put enough toppings on the yogurt. More importantly…that their mochi wasn’t up to par!!!
Well, that first time there, even though I didn’t get mochi as a topping, I did ask to try it, so I remembered it being the same texture as any other place I’ve tried it. Just the right chewiness. I think that all these places actually get them from the same supplier.
So, like I said, we came unannounced. We came after having dinner w/ Fannypack across the street at Cattle Cafe. When we entered Boyfriend called to Gary, who obviously seemed surprised to see us so soon after the initial visit!
I shared a small Original ($0.99!!) with 2 toppings- mochi and lychee. Fannypack and I both agreed that they put a lot of toppings on it. There were more mochi underneath those lychee. The mochi were the same as I remembered and the yogurt was not icy at all.
Gary and Benson came over to talk to us afterwards and they’ve read the blog entry, and has told us they’ve taken the comments into account. Benson said they’ve turned down the music!!
I addressed the soft icy yogurt issue, and Gary said that usually it’s the first part that comes out of the machine that’s melty and soft. They try not to serve that part.
Service seemed the same as before, the girls were friendly (and smiling!!), quality and quantity didn’t change, we really are liking this place.
P.S. There’s a contest listed on the first Tuttimelon post. However, if you comment here you will be entered into the contest also. See previous post for details.
