YogurStory, located in the heart of Keeaumoku in Dong Hwa Shopping Center, is crafty with its dessert combinations, and these groupings are not only unique and beautiful, but also tasty and satisfying.
Although YogurStory is open for only breakfast and lunch, desserts are always the best options, as those with a sweet tooth will understand that it’s never too early for a decadent creme brulee.
YogurStory’s Taro Latte Creme Brulee ($8) is adorned with fresh berries that result in an exquisite presentation.
“Taro Latte Creme Brulee is my original recipe,” explains executive chef Andy Dalan.
Another signature dish of Dalan’s is Cookie Butter Banana Cheesecake ($9).
A marbled swirl atop the Cookie Butter Banana Cheesecake adds flair and splendor to the dish, which sits atop a spread of cookie butter accented with fresh berries. (The cookie butter also is swirled into the cheesecake itself.)
“Because of this cookie butter craze, I wanted to include it in a cheesecake,” Dalan says.
The restaurant’s Mac Nut Chocolate Tart ($8) is served with a spoonful of fresh berries and topped with powdered sugar. The refreshing array of berries pairs well with the sweetness of the chocolate and crunch of the macadamia nuts.
“We still have the original waffles,” Dalan says, “and it’s still served all day. We came out with a new sweet waffle — Waffle Pino ($12). It’s been selling a lot.”
Dalan goes on to explain that YogurStory will add more desserts to its menu in the near future, so be on the lookout for that!
In the meantime, stop in before breakfast for a sweet jump-start to your day, during your lunch break for a relaxing meal or somewhere in between for those on the go.
You’re sure to find something you love at YogurStory.
