When I think of a yogurt place, I typically think of frozen yogurt, not boba. But Domie’s Yogurt is a new shop that serves yogurt-based boba drinks. Opening last month, it has become a popular hangout spot due to its close proximity to the school. 

Upon arriving, guests are greeted by friendly staff and a large, dimly lit room filled with seating areas. There are screens located on the wall to display the menus and the kitchen is visible behind the ordering counter. What really caught my attention was the Kaws statue that was placed by the front counter. I found it interesting that they chose to have a statue like this here, and there were also many other pictures of Kaws hanging on the walls.

The first item that I ordered was the Mango Pomelo Sago ($5.95). It was a mango flavored yogurt slush with sago balls mixed into it. The texture was thick and creamy, but I couldn’t taste any mango in the drink at all. The sago balls were slimy, which threw me off as it clashed with the texture of the drink and didn’t enhance it in any way. The drink was basic and lacked flavor.

The next thing I ordered was the Strawberry Yogurt ($5.95). Like the Mango Pomelo Sago, this drink was a yogurt slush, with the only difference being in the flavor. As soon as I took a sip, I was disappointed. The strawberry flavor tasted artificial and there was a weird sour aftertaste which made it hard to finish.

I noticed that the shop also sold food items, so I decided to get a Strawberry Banana Nutella Crepe ($9.50). The crepe came placed in a cardboard cover, so people can hold their crepe and enjoy it. The crepe was warm and crispy, which was something that surprised me since I’ve never had a crispy crepe. The fruit was fresh and the Nutella wasn’t too overpowering. The only complaint I have is that it was messy to eat and made my hands very sticky, but that’s more of a personal problem. All in all, it was a decent crepe, but it was a little pricey.

Overall, I was disappointed. My expectations for this place were higher and the food here ended up falling short of them. The idea of yogurt-based boba drinks seems innovative, but the execution of making the drinks didn’t work as well. Since it’s new, maybe they can still iron out these issues.
