Touting itself as the best froyo and burgers in town, Yo My Goodness on Kingsway has enjoyed a booming popularity.
With pumping music, a vibrant atmosphere and interesting and novel takes on frozen yogurt, shakes and burgers, plus a millennial-friendly moniker and image, the shop's a hit with young people and families in the area. If you go there in the evening, you will see hungry queues line up eager for a taste of their yummy burgers and delish yogurt.
Both frozen yogurt and burgers have been trending for a while now, and not only does YOMG cleverly incorporate both of these, it does them pretty well, with plenty to please both those watching their diet and those who feel like indulging.
Their burger menu offers vegan and vegetarian options, as well as plenty to please meat and seafood lovers. The soft shell crab burger features a crispy fried soft shelled crab with creamy-spicy chilli mayo. Served with their extra crunchy fries seasoned with chicken salt, it really hits the spot.
Some of the delicious and unusual milkshake flavours on offer are dessert-inspired shakes, such as Lemon Pie, which features real lemon curd and crushed Scotch Finger biscuits for a drink that really does taste like a lemon tart in drink form.
The frozen yogurt flavours on offer are also pretty inspired, with staples like original and chocolate, but interesting ones like peach and salted caramel as well. For vegans and the lactose-intolerant, there's the soy banana cinnamon flavour, which is decidedly un-yogurt like but still delicious, reminiscent of a banana smoothie crossed with a soy chai latte.
Bottom line is – whether you're after a casual dinner or after-movie dessert, YOMG's got what you're after.
MMmm, I'll have to look out for them when I'm next in Glen Waverley. I wouldn't mind trying the forzen yoghurt. Kingsway holds some good memories for me as it was here that I went to a restaurant for the first time ever. I won't let on how long ago that was. It was a Chinese restaurant called Rock Kung.
