There’s a new luxury to living in Beverly Hills—spontaneous trips to Greece. I’m not talking the picturesque white sand beaches, historic ruins, or island hopping. Instead, your taste buds get to do the traveling thanks to Go Greek Yogurt, a new yogurt shop on Bedford Drive. Think Yogurtland meets Pressed Juicery meets Athens.
Let’s begin with the fresh stuff. Yogurt enthusiasts can choose from 0% (contains the most protein), 2% or 10% fat content Greek yogurt flown in bi-weekly from Greece and then top it away with fresh locally sourced fruits, or imported preserves.
Why not go for the preserved carrots that add a subtle sweetness to the tangy 0% yogurt, or the rose preserves, which although smelling like grandma’s house, add a floral sweetness to the thick, gritty-textured 10 percent.
When it becomes overwhelming to choose between quince preserves, fresh strawberries, dates or chia seeds, a pre-selected combination like the Nisos (mango, blueberry, hemp seed and lemon zest) eases the pressure.
If the ocean-blue stained wood paneled ceiling reminds you of a sunny summer day (or any season in LA since the sun never leaves us), there’s frozen yogurt to cool you down.
Four flavors—original tart, chocolate, honey, and wild berry—can be pumped from the wall, topped with candies, fresh fruits, nuts or seeds, then weighed before consumption. I’m a plain tart kind of guy, but you might find me dipping in the chocolate, which is 98 percent cacao. Opa!
Greek owner Tanja Suboic is looking forward to bringing savory options to the shop including packaged lunch boxes with tzatziki or hummus and serving authentic Greek coffee that’s traditionally made in kettles filled with sand.
