Crepes and frozen yogurt -- what's not to love?
Still no signs of Pinkberry in these parts, but there is a Scottsdale frozen yogurt spot that opened last week where they serve something quite similar to it, according to owner Charles Cha.
The place is called Ice Tango, and the house specialty is the kind of tangy-sweet frozen yogurt that's super popular in Southern California. It comes in regular, strawberry, peach, and blueberry flavors, with a choice of a dozen different fresh fruit toppings, as well dry add-ins, from crunchy granola to Cap'n Crunch.
Along with frozen yogurt shakes, Illy coffee, and frozen custard (coming as soon as the machine is installed, says Cha), the rest of the menu revolves around homemade crepes, both sweet and savory.
Options include "The Nutella Classic," with Nutella (surprise), banana, walnuts, nougat and whipped cream; "The Lemon Berry," with lemon curd, fresh berries, and whipped cream; "The Tango," with tomato-garlic pesto, egg, cheddar, ham, red pepper, and onion; and "The Southwestern," with chile verde pork sauce, cheddar, chorizo, red pepper, and roasted red pepper pesto.
Ice Tango is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p., and is located at 15560 N. Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd., inside the Scottsdale Town Center at the southeast corner of the 101 intersection. Call 480-767-2665 for more info.
