It has only been recently that stand alone frozen yoghurt business made a come back in the form of Tutti Frutti and now Crumbs. I don't really fancy the taste of Tutti Frutti plus it can really be rather "dangerous" kekeke as their concept is self-help and we only get to know how much our cup of yoghurt will cost at the end after weighing it. It can get quite exorbitant since it's hard to control the amount by pulling the lever and the heavy toppings are not helping either lol.
I had read with interest when an article introducing Crumbs in a local newspaper. It has been on my mind ever since then but just that we never get to visit Pavilion these days. It says that Crumbs is originated from Hong Kong which at first specialised in flavoured scones but after introducing frozen yoghurt, it seems like the yoghurt is now more popular.
We have an appointment near Pavilion so we dropped by to check out Crumbs which is located next to Food Republic (the food court). It has taken over Durian Durian kiosk which has shifted to KLCC. Since we have lunch not long ago, we did not buy any scones to try. Anyway, my main aim is the frozen yoghurt!
Capt'n Hook and I shared a large portion that came with 2 toppings (RM12.90) which I picked their signature crumbs and cute little baby meringues in pastel colours. I guess since they were new, they offered me to try another topping, the handmade mochi. You can see by now, our cup is almost over flowing with toppings!
First of all, we both like the texture of the yoghurt. It's smooth and velvety, a little tart like how yoghurt should taste like. The signature crumbs topping is actually cleverly layered at the bottom and in between, plus a little on top. This way I find that they are evenly distributed without having too much crumbs just on top. By the way, the crumbs are not made from leftover scones :p yes, yes, I was kaypoh (busy body) enough to ask! It lend a slight crunch and is lightly cinnamon scented. I also loved the baby meringues. Can't help eating spoonfuls of them just like that. The mochi came in white and smallish pieces. They have a nice bouncy texture.
As they have like 20 over toppings, I think it's going to take us a while to try out the different combinations. The pricing is quite fair to us with just the addition of RM1.90 for a large portion with an extra topping as the regular sized frozen yoghurt with one topping is going for RM11.00. Each additional topping will cost RM1.50.
Since both of us seated quite near to the kiosk, Jaymie, one of the partner of Crumbs, came by to ask for our feedback. We did gave her quite a positive feedback and the only thing they need to do now is to promote Crumbs to generate the interest and awareness of their existence in the mass of food kiosks on that floor. Judging from the few interruptions that Jaymie has to get back to the kiosk to serve customers in between chatting with us, I think they're on the right track ;-)
