Universal and FroYo

by Meghann on January 30, 2010

I’ve mentioned this before, but out of all the burrito chains out there Moes is by far my favorite! The menu has so many mix and match options and everyone who works there always has a wonderful smile on their face.

I especially enjoy the “Welcome to Moes” when you walk in the door. πŸ™‚

Derek and I stopped at Moes on our way to Universal for a quick and easy lunch.

I ordered the Naked (sans tortilla) Art Vandalay which came with black beans, rice, chredded cheese, pico de gallo, lettuce, guacamole, onion, jalapenos, cucumbers, and olives.

I ate the whole bowl and about a quarter of the chips that were served on the side.

Moe’s Tomatillo Salsa is by far my favorite chip dip.

We headed to Universal and Islands of Adventure next and enjoyed the small crowds and short lines for a couple of hours.

I LOVE going to the theme parks during the ‘off’ season!

Unfortunately it started to rain after a couple of hours playing in the parks. πŸ™

Instead of going straight home we decided to seek shelter in a new frozen yogurt shop I have been dying to try nearby.

I was in self serve heaven

Seriously this place put Berrywise to shame.

My favorite was the red velvet flavor. It was like cake batter with a twist.

Mine and Derek’s creations.

I had a great mix of red velvet, cake batter, cookies & cream, and peanut butter with an assortment of fun toppings.

Menchie’s – I promise I’ll be back. πŸ™‚

Last week Derek and I went to a Tampa Bay Lightening game, this week its time for the Orlando Magic! I got him both sets of tickets for christmas and they just happened to fall on back to back weekends.

I haven’t been to a Magic game since I was kid, it should be a fun trip down memory lane!

Have a great evening bloggies! πŸ™‚

Todd and I went to Menchie’s after the meetup at the Peach Valley Cafe. We don’t have any froyo places near our house so it was a great treat!

Aww.. I love the rides at Islands of Adventure- so fun!

I’m so jealous of the shorts and tee shirts I see everyone wearing at the park. Isaac and I went to get Fro yo last night but once we got outside I realized it was way too cold. We got Starbucks instead. It was good, but nothing like fro yo :/ I want more of that pumpkin flavor we had in San Fran!!!

What a delicious day!

I’ve heard good things about Moes but am totally loyal to Chipotle. πŸ˜‰

22 Heather January 30, 2010 at 10:28 pm

I am so jealous of your day!

Moes is one of my favorite places – a few years ago, I lived down the street from one and would get it as a treat – probably once a week. Sadly/Fortunately, the closest one is now about 35 minutes away.

Jealous of your FRO-YO! I wouldn’t have known where to start – way too many choices. I cannot imagine Cake Batter.

Enjoy the basketball game!

I’m so jealous of all your frozen yogurt consumption! I’m in desperate need! Can you believe there isn’t a frozen yogurt place around here except Tasty D-Lite, which isn’t frozen yogurt!!

Oh, my, goodness. Really, I didn’t think anyone could top my froyo addiction – until I started reading your blog. I am incredibly jealous of the looks of this new find, and all the amazing flavors! I have given up dairy, but if places like this were close to my home I’d be having a lot of problems!

I went to Menchie’s in the Los Angeles burbs last spring. I nearly cried when I entered the place!

oohh my gosh that place looks AMAZING! What does ‘cake batter’ flavour even taste like!? Or red velvet? You americans have the BEST flavours in the world!!

Reply

31 Tay January 31, 2010 at 7:15 am

K so my fave flavor ever is cake batter, but if you say red velvet it just as good with a twist….I’m jealous!!! Sounds delicious!

32 MyThy as in "Mighty" January 31, 2010 at 8:58 am

Usually not a fan of chains (support the local businesses!) but I have to admit YogurtLand and Menchie’s does froYo right in my book. The others usually have runny yogurt you have to “let out” first before you get to the thick REAL stuff. Your’s looks delicioso! πŸ˜‰

33 Heather January 31, 2010 at 9:33 am

Moe’s is 100% my favorite too. I like the nachos best πŸ™‚ I can’t believe how many fro yo places you have!!

34 Tiffany January 31, 2010 at 9:44 am

wow, your froyo looks so good! i want to try red velvet! i have yet to eat at Moe’s, even though it’s like 20 minutes from my house, but you’re making me want to go there now!

35 Kristi W. @ Life at the Chateau Whitman January 31, 2010 at 10:55 am

Cute pics! I’ve never been to Universal, but it sure looks fun. Also that burrito looks delicious. I love salsa and chips too. Probably one of my favorite kinds of food.
