Finally made it out to Pinkberry in West Hollywoodtoday, to see what the big deal is. After reading the article in the LA Times about Pinkberry and their disgruntled neighbors, I thought it would be a mob scene with no place to park, but instead I found a spot directly across the street! I couldn't believe it! I wanted to leave my car there all day and bask in the glory of having the prime spot. There were about 8 people ahead of me, and they did make us form the line outside, rather than snake in the air-conditioned, too-loud-bad-Euro-techno-pop-blaring store. It moved pretty quickly. They offer 2 kinds of frozen yogurt: plain and green tea. I tried a sample of the green tea and ordered a small (5oz.) plain yogurt with blueberries.
This was the first frozen yogurt I have had that actually tasted like yogurt. It was ice cold, and stayed cold. No melting here. I do not like green tea, but the yogurt had just a nice delicate taste of green tea, which complemented the yogurt's tangyness nicely. After I sat down the line quickly grew out the door and down the street. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it, but I do not know how soon I will be wiling to make the trip out to WeHo just for yogurt. Maybe the next time I am at Lucques I will swing by...
