llaollao

The hottest froyo shop right now

Spanish brand llaollao (say: 'yao-yao') is a growing empire of 15 outlets across the island. This isn't the yogurt ice cream of your diet dreams, though. Prices start at $2.50 for a Petitllao serving and peak at $6.95 for a Sanum, which gives you three fruit add-ins, two crunchy toppings and a sauce. llaollao's first outlet in Asia opened here in 2013 and the queues continue to snake around the stands and shops – the hype's not going to die down anytime soon.

Yoğart

Froyo in cups and popsicles

Homegrown brand Yoğart takes pride in its freshly cultured yogurt, made in its in-store lab. Besides soft-serve froyo ($3.20-$6.20), it also offers popsicles ($2.80) with flavours such as the Yuzu Explosion, and yogurt swirls on waffles with in-house sauces drizzled on ($8.80).

Glacier Frozen Yogurt Cafe

Ice-cold froyo paired with fluffy waffles

Glacier’s ice-cold froyo certainly lives up to the name of this parlour. You can mix and match flavours in a pay-by-weight system ($3.30/100g), but we recommend the citrusy and stronger-flavoured yuzu or lychee over the blander chocolate or matcha. They also offer coffee-, tea- and chocolate-based drinks ($3-$6), as well as smoothies at $5.90 each. For a heartier treat, Belgium waffles ($3.50-$7.90), which can be paired with any froyo flavour of your choice, are a pleasant surprise – hot, fluffy and soft.

Yami Yogurt

Froyo pioneers

Literally the stuff of our childhoods, Yami Yogurt claims to have been around since the '80s, making it one of the oldest froyo brands still around. A regular cup with toppings such as banana chips and fruity pebbles will set you back just $3.85. Whoever said froyo needs to burn a hole in your wallet?

Yoguru

Old but gold

Another brand that has been around for a while, Yoguru continues to be a strong competitor in the froyo market. Each cup costs $3.20 to $6.50 depending on size, and you can choose from five flavours including strawberry, coconut and original, then top it off with crunchy bits like honey stars and almond crumble. Takeaway servings are available as well, from $10.90 to $11.90. And with the brand's many outlets island-wide, we don’t foresee it losing to the fancier froyo brands anytime soon.

Honeycomb

Real honey for #foodporn win

The owners of Stateland Café try their hand at Korean soft-serve and froyo with Honeycomb. Stepping inside, it feels like you're in an extension of the café with the same rustic, cosy interiors shared across the two neighbouring outlets. Choose from five flavours – classic, chocolate, caramel, matcha, and apple and cinnamon ($6-$7) – and a choice of milk or yogurt soft-serve. It’s a little milky for froyo, but goes surprisingly well with the honeycomb topping and honey, which is served in a cute little syringe that you inject into the froyo yourself. Fun!

The Cold Pantry

Unusual flavours and toppings

Placed among the stretch of cafés on Rangoon Road, The Cold Pantry is a great place to chill out on a Sunday afternoon. Besides froyo at $6, expect soft-serve ice cream ($6.50-$7) and waffles ($8-$12.50), as well as unique flavours including Thai milk tea and sea salt caramel. One of the star desserts is the chocolate root beer waffle with charcoal vanilla ice cream ($12.50) – it tastes exactly like chocolate brownie and ice cream. The Milo Dino froyo ($6) is, however, nothing like the local beverage. Thumbs up to the yogurt, though – its fresh, slightly sour taste was a refreshing reminder of what real Greek-style yogurt should taste like.

Beegurt

Froyo with raw honeycomb  

Claiming to be one of the first to combine froyo with raw honeycomb, Beegurt is a small, simple but cute café among the many others in Thomson V Two. Choose from three different sizes, which come with one or three toppings ($4.50-$6.50), or the Beegurt special: froyo with raw honeycomb and two toppings at $6.80.
