Today I went to meet with the owner of Lotus, a new yogurt bar that opened in Northridge near my school, to talk about advertising. After my meeting he was nice enough to offer me a complimentary frozen yogurt, which I had to turn down since I do not eat any dairy products. After informing him of my dietary restrictions he jumped to tell me that they actually always offer two non-dairy flavors. I was so excited that they had a dairy alternative option, that I was set on trying both flavors. Right now the two flavors they have are pink lemonade and raspberry pomegranate sorbet. Both flavors were absolutely wonderful, and not to mention fat free! The pink lemonade flavor was slightly softer than traditional frozen yogurt with a more icy texture to it which fit the flavor well, and the raspberry pomegranate sorbet was thick and rich with the more traditional texture. They will also be rotating the flavors Kiwi Strawberry, Mango, Sublime Lime, Watermelon, Mango Passion, Hawaiian Delight, and Green Tea.
This location offers a 15% discount to csun students. I also found out that the owner is planning to knock down one of their walls and combine the Vietnamese restaurant Bun Me next store with the Lotus yogurt bar. He hopes to expand the menu, and who knows maybe they will include some vegan things to eat there as well.
