Waffle sticks. So good. Sigh.

A good dessert, like a good book, stays with you forever. You might be surprised to learn that we have books on my planet. Well, except, they are much more sophisticated than the paltry fare available here. I use the word fare because like most things on Gastronomica, books are consumed. Ingested. Gulped down. Whatever definition works best for you. A poorly written tale will give you an exceptionally bad case of indigestion. But the best books, ah, those end up consuming you, rather than the other way around. So you see now, how desserts are comparable to books. And just like an especially well crafted story, the dessert at YogurtBay, Koregaon Park, sweeps you away into an elegantly constructed world of gastronomical fantasy. The waffle sticks are simply stunning. Crispy, crunchy and light, but rich and extravagant at the same time, they feature an amazing blend of flavours and textures. An ideal snack, I would say, especially if you are in the mood to treat yourself well. The red velvet waffle stick is luscious and creamy, while the chocolate dipped waffle stick is melt-in-your-mouth decadent. And of course, how could I not try the yogurt? It was, as I hoped, absolutely delicious—not overly tangy, and smoother and creamier than any yogurt I’ve ever sampled. The flavor (I tried the blueberry cheesecake) really popped. Of course, yogurt toppings are not a new concept, but they are a highly pleasing one nonetheless. And YogurtBay’s toppings definitely do not disappoint. So the next time you feel especially indulgent, treat yourself to this. Your taste buds will thank you.
