Before we went on our 6D6N adventure in Hong Kong & Macau, I had diligently scoured the internet for all the best places to eat there. In fact, my final recommended food list was so long that it was probably not even humanly possible to visit and eat at all those places... you might need two digestive systems or something. :p
Anyway, one of those places (and to which ZH's friend from Hong Kong, Tiffany agreed too) was Crumbs Frozen Yogurt. According to her, it was pretty good, and one of the popular places for frozen yogurt in Hong Kong, having opened in 2009.
That particular night in Hong Kong, we were feeling so stuffed after two dinners (yes, two!) that I decided to forego giving Crumbs a try. But, as fate would have it, Crumbs opened at our very own Pavillion soon after we returned! :D /thanks food gods
Crumbs is a dessert stand that specializes in frozen yogurt and freshly baked scones; a weird combination if you ask me, but hey, who's complaining?
Unlike Tutti Frutti with nearly every flavour under the sun, Crumbs only has an original yogurt flavour, but it is one you can load with many toppings, ranging from the healthy like fruits, and also the fun ones like gummy bears, marshmallows and even condensed milk!
They are however famous (and this is probably also where their name is derived from) for their House Crumbs topping, which is a crunchy cinnamon cookie crumble. We went for a large cup of original yogurt (RM 12.90), with two toppings of their recommendation, the house crumbs and the green tea mochi.
I was really impressed with the frozen yogurt and so was Adam. The texture was smooth, dense and extremely creamy. This is not unlike the texture of Moo Cow's frozen yogurt, but what I prefer is that the tartness of flavour in the yogurt is milder at Crumbs. Moo Cow's original flavour is too sour for me in big doses, but still remains Adam's favourite.
What makes things yummier, is that that Crumbs doesn't just top your yogurt serving with a heap of crumbs, they carefully layer your yogurt with layers of crumbs too! This makes it all the more satisfying because then there's cinnamon crumbs to enjoy for throughout the entire height of the yogurt cup :p
A word of caution though, don't believe the guy behind the counter when he recommends the mochi, whether plain or green tea flavoured. These are essentially tasteless and felt like an awfully odd combination with the yogurt and house crumbs. Perhaps we'll try some fruits, or some other biscuit mix with our yogurt next time.
The scones smelt so good as we stood there, so much so that I greedily caved and decided to give them a try (our original plan was to just try the yogurt :S). Unfortunately, despite us cajoling the guy behind the counter, he wouldn't just sell us one scone to try so we had to buy the minimum purchase of 3 pieces - one scone with Raisins, Chocolate and Cheese each for RM 2.90 a piece.
It was one of those days when greed didn't pay off though.
The Chocolate scone was okay, with bits of melted chocolate in between but yet not sweet enough for our liking.
The Cheese scone, containing bits of Parmesan cheese was also interesting at first bite, but too dry to finish in its entirety.
The Raisins scone was the best out of the three, in my opinion. The insides were slightly moister than the rest, and the plump, sweet raisins were a good addition.
We didn't fancy the scones all that much, maybe because we're too used to having our scones accompanied with some good jam and clotted cream. Maybe that's something Crumbs could take into consideration, selling some jam/cream/butter on the sides?
Scones and mochi aside, however, I really liked Crumbs' yogurt, especially with the house crumbs. I think I'll definitely return for those two whenever we're in Pavillion. :)
