We went to BLK 513 last Friday for dessert. We didn't feel like having our usual charcoal yogurt with fruits, so we chose to try their float instead.

Matcha Skim Float P145
Matcha skim milk, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, milk jam drizzle. Loved the matcha skim milk! The yogurt wasn't sour. Its taste and texture was more like ice cream. The milk jam drizzle tasted like it had caramelized sugar. I loved that it had some "sugar crystals", much like the top of a creme brulee.

We paid P99 for a cup. Apparently it was on promo (I didn't ask why because the server seemed already a bit irate after we had a hard time deciding what to order 128517)

Match Skim Float ftw! The nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt was the perfect match to their matcha skim milk 128076

Finally got to try BLK 513 just because 1) they opened a branch near me, and 2) I wanted to try it after the hype to avoid the crowd (raise your hand if you hate long lines like me128587🏽).

So, I'm not gonna make this too long since I'm probably the 100th reviewer already - for me its just so-so. I was honestly excited to try it because of the "activated charcoal" thing and everyone says its too good but after one scoop, I thought its just a normal frozen yogurt. I'd give them points for cool bases - I got granola for additional 10php, and sauces - of course I got matcha; but they had interesting ones like cereal milk, espresso latte, and peanut butter jam and okay the fact that it has "activated charcoal" but for the taste, I still prefer Pinkberry.

Why? Because its more tangy than BLK 513. And I like my froyo tangy. BLK 513's yogurt is a bit sweet.

I went with my friends and for them it was good. They liked this than Llao llao because they said they have more yogurt in a serving. So I think it would really depend on your tastebuds. If you don't like the tangy taste in yogurt then maybe you'd love BLK 513 more than I do. But for me, its not something I would go back for.128556

For the place.. they have more standing tables than chairs but I'm not sure if this goes to other branches too. We got there a little after lunch and the line wasn't too long yet.

The staff, gotta say there's this one lady who was a bit unwelcoming. She doesn't look too happy taking orders basing from the tone of her voice. She even hit one of our cups while she was preparing them and she had to make another one because it fell on the ground. Anyway maybe she was just having a bad day.128517

Blk 413, finally!! Been eyeing on this yogurt place since they opened up North but just couldn't find the energy to drop by. But with a new store at S Maison, I am glad they adjusted with me. Haha. Sooooo, it's a so-so for me. Yes, their toppings are healthy. Organic and even gluten free so you can expect a healthy option here. However, compared to other yogurt places their yogurt isn't really sour. I'm not sure it it's because I chose a chocolate sauce that it overpower the yogurt or it's just a lot less sour than usual. I like the peach and strawberry topping but very limited option. The place is small but you can stay there and wait till a seat is available. They usually serve in a sanum kind of yogurt; ones with toppings and sauce already. I'd say it's okay. It never hurts to try their yogurt but I think I'm good with my usual.

if you are an adventurous eater, try this youghurt shop, i find it a bit too over priced, the taste will depend on your choices if toppings, like what kind fruit, crunch and sauce. it is a mix-n'-match experiment. as for dining space, it lacks seats and tables and service water for their customers.

I have been wanting to try a cup ever since BLK 513 opened their first shop. I was excited to finally be able to order with my mom yesterday. The activated-charcoal enhanced yogurt was really smooth and not too tart. I had S'mores as crunch, strawberries and peaches for fruits and hot Nutella fudge as sauce.

Giving this store a rating of 1.0 though because of the snooty server who took our orders. She was unwelcoming and seemed to be impatient as we were choosing which toppings to put in our cup. She did not take time to explain how the ordering process should be. She looked annoyed when I changed my mind which crunch to put in my cup. At the fruits station, there where two containers that both seemed to have strawberries in them so I asked her if those both contained strawberries. She hurriedly scooped strawberries in my cup, not paying attention to my question and immediately asked what other fruit I wanted in my cup. I said Um, ok, magoes?. And she replied peaches yan. At the sauces station, my mom wanted Valrhona on hers. The server snapped back with may additional P10 yan ma'am. My blood was boiling at that point. So we went ahead not getting Valrhona kasi nakakahiya naman sa kanya na parang wala kaming P10 and she finally left us to dispense yogurts to our cup.

She was going through the process like she hated her job so much and making sure the customers knew. She wasn't smiling, she had a tone, and was not pleasant at all. I hope the owners get to do something about this.

This became our instant favorite fro-yo! 10084

I tried the Dark Skim cup with dark chocolate sauce, banana (considered as 2 fruits) and choco crunch- P185
My sister got Dark Skim cup with nutella sauce, kiwi, mango and oreo cookies - P185

Though it's only a small stall in Conrad, I actually enjoyed the place because of the interior. They only have limited seats. It'll be better if they could add more.

What I like about their froyo is that it's not too sweet and sour. It's milky and has a perfect taste combination! I guess it will also be depending on your chosen sauce and fruits. As for me, I am really a fan of dark choco and banana! 128076🏼

I'll be back for sure! 128513

I never liked Yogurt. I don't like how it deceivingly looks like Ice Cream but tastes sour. Nakaka-trauma if you were expecting ice cream. 128514128514128514

But going here I already set my mind that what I'm having is Froyo and not Chocolate Soft Serve. Threw in some fruits and some Valrhona to share with my kid. I would say that the toppings helped in curbing the sour taste but I'm still no fan of Frozen Yogurt and other healthy food choices. 128514128514128514

It would be unfair to give 3 stars based on personal preference plus my kid liked it and we were able to finish it anyway. I can see a lot of people liking on it too. Service was also prompt and the staff were very accommodating on queries and suggestions on toppings. 128077

This activated-charcoal enhanced frozen yoghurt is a unique take on the much neglected food fad. I didn't like having fruits in my frozen yoghurt so I opted for a brownie mix-in and the salted chocolate sauce, which I highly recommend. The froyo itself has that tangy yogurt flavor that's not too strong and the activated-charcoal did not affect the taste at all. Must-try for all the froyo lovers out there!

Oh and here's my entry for the #UnicornGiveaway 🦄

After seeing tons of photos of BLK 513's yoghurt, I just had to try it myself, and it didn't disappoint. I got the vegan brownies as my crunch and chocolate sauce. I opted not to put any fruits as I didn't like the selection they had - still had to pay the same price though. I honestly wish they had an option to convert the 2 fruit choices into a crunch instead or maybe to serve it at a lower price or something. Anyway, the place is alright and service was just okay.

I still think that my experience at megamall is better than this one.

The yogurt was soft. I would have liked it if it was more stiff.
I have tried their new crunch, the rain forest which consists of squash seeds and some sort of sweet tasting dried fruit. I thougyt it was cranberries but the most ment i ate it its texture was not like as cranberries. and it was not sour as well. I could not figure it out anymore since it was covered with the yogurt.

I also tried the new sauce called the red velvet cheese sauce. It was indeed cheesy. Just bright red. Reminds me of the slimey toy in a plastic cylinder container.

The service was kind of lame that evening. There was just one customer and then me. They were three inside. One of the servers was prepping the customer's order before me. The other two were confused if they would talk to me or just let the busy server talk to me. I stood there for at least 3 minutes randomly asking questions to them as well.

But anyway. It was just okay.

The place is more chic than their megamall branch.

I had their matcha skim as well. Nope. Too milky taste. Oh. Shake well before drinking. That PhP135 for the threaded plastic container.

So after eating at Uma Uma, we walked past BLK 513 and I wanted to get the matcha skim milk and my sisters haven't tried the charcoal yogurt so we shared one cup. 128541

I wanted to try the Valrhona Dark Chocolate Fudge syrup so we got that, but my sisters didn't like how bitter it was. It was 60% dark chocolate!! 12852510084️ I loved it though hahaha! Adds some more contrast between the sourness of the yogurt and the sweetness of the fruits.

The Matcha Skim Milk disappointed me a bit. The matcha flavor was there. The milk was light and smooth. I kept shaking it so the sugar would be mixed thoroughly. They also advised to shake it well before consumption. I found it a bit sweet though. It was good, but there wasn't anything special to it. I like the container though. Worth keeping! Hihi. 128518

"More than the usual frozen yogurt." was the first thing I saw as I entered BLK513. I was very curious as to how good it is after hearing so many good things about this place.

I loved the interiors of the place. Only a few seats were available since most people just grab a cup and continue with business around the mall. There was a loooong queue when I got there but I said I need to try it now so no backing out. Service was very slow but worth the wait!

Unlike the usual yogurt, BLK 513 has their yogurt in gray. The color comes from activated charcoal - the world's oldest and trusted detoxifying agent. Not only is it healthy, but it also allows you to enjoy great food without feeling guilty!

I ordered their Dark Skim Cup for P185. This includes your choice of one crunch, two fruits and one syrup. I had mine with Malt Sandwich, lychees, grapes and their gorgeous salted chocolate GRAVY. I know. Sounds weird but yum at the same time right? But trust me, it won't let you down. Loved the malt sandwich flavor. It actually tasted like milo chunks with a deeper chocolate flavor. Fruits went well with them but I think I might skip on the lychees next time. I just don't think it's the best fruit to pair with any yogurt. But overall, everything went well with each other.

K ordered his cup with Caramel Cookies, Mango, Peaches and warm valrhom mousse. Got to taste a spoon of this and it was also yum!!

We each got a cup and it was a bit too much since we just had dinner. Maybe we should have just shared one 128514 It's quite big and a cup can satisfy two people already. Will definitely be back for more next time!

P. S. They also sell drinks that are served in a jar. I think the packaging is very cute! 128149 Might try those next time.

P. P. S. Plain yogurt is not for sale here. Everything in their menu comes with yogurt + toppings.

after several plans to visit that didnt push through, I finally got to try blk513! Went on a sunday evening and there was no line!

Tried the dark skim cup (185php) which allows you to choose one sauce, two toppings, and one crunch. I had their vegan brownies, strawberries, lychees, and their matcha sauce. All I can say is, amazing how it tasted great even if there was so many things happening!! I'm not really a fan of ice cream with toppings as I like my ice cream simple, but this one, you have to try. Everything complimented each other for me.

Wasnt too sweet and they do not skimp on the quality of their ingredients. Everything was fresh and good. The brownies were chewy too! Serving was of course big considering the price. The dark skim cup is really good for sharing!! I do want to try the yoghurt without all the toppings though, to see if I like Llaollao better or blk513!!

I can't believe I'd been told that this was all hype! My goodness, this was ALL YUM!

I think it was the activated charcoal enhanced frozen yogurt and matcha milk cake that did it. Whatever this voodoo is, I'm so coming back for more! 128154127846 I'll be trying the salted chocolate sauce and smores toppings next time!

We were already stuffed to the brim but we planned the date until dessert and a trip to Pasay is a waste if I don't get to go to all the places I planned to try, especially since J and I are both from way up north of QC. 128569 BLK 513 just opened here and I really wanted to have dessert here. We were looking into getting something sweet from Carnivale but decided we'll just come back in SMaison for another food crawl date night. 128569

Basically the frozen black yogurt tastes like regular frozen yogurt to me. 128569 But I love yogurt so this is the perfect place for me. We just shared a cup because it's huge! We ordered the dark skim cup with caramelized cookies, kiwi and honeydew, and for the sauce, we had the Matcha Milk Cake. Typically our cup was mostly black, golden brown and green. It looked weird, but it tasted really good! The tangy kiwi flavor went very well with the yogurt and the sweetness of the crispy honeydew was great. Plus the caramelized cookie crumbs enhanced the flavor so much! And the Matcha sauce was great too! It was well pronounced with the nice deep leafy green tea flavor, but it did not overpower the rest of the cup. 128571 I really enjoyed this! 128568

SMaison is not too crowded yet, which was a good thing because all of the ingredients were available here. There were no empty spots on every station. I really liked that because I do know that its sister branch in SM North tends to run out with choice toppings. I will definitely come back here for another go at this unique and healthy dessert! 128571
