After lunch, we headed back to Whyte Ave to try the latest ice cream spot to open up. Finally! Yelo’d Ice Cream specializes in soft serve favouring Filipino style flavours. It’s located right beside Kaengthai Bistro.
We dropped in on a Friday afternoon (around 1:00pm) and lucked out. No line or people inside! Got to chat with one of the owners who was very friendly and let us sample all four flavours. It’s small inside; there’s only two benches outside to sit at.
In case you wanted to know what Yelo meant in Tagalog.
Cute decor and waffles all lined up, ready to go.
Charcoal cones seems to be all the rage these days. Their pints ($8.00) are super reasonable, plus loving the slick design.
There were two twist options (four flavours) and a Vietnamese affogato.
They also had milky buns that you could combine with your soft serve.
Glutinous heaven. We stuck with the regular cones for our first cone.
Ube and buko twist ($5.50 cone)
The ube (taro) flavour was better than the buko (young coconut). They added a piece of dried coconut and a sprinkle of fruit pebbles. Texture was good but it melted like crazy the moment we stepped outside. Would like more oomph of flavour; a tad too subtle.
Happy to see Edmonton finally get some ice cream spots!
