Anyone know where OKO is?

jdmetz Jun 7, 2007 09:23 AM

NY Magazine's website had an item for a new frozen yogurt shop in Park Slope called OKO, but did not list an address, the store's website does not seem to have any actual content and a google search came up blank. Has anybody seen this place and know where it is? Thanks very much.

      Its on 5th Avenue on the same block as Los Politos and V Spot.

      Went in there last night hoping they would have Bubble Tea, but alas, they did not.

      152 5th ave. Was there last weekend. It's a pretty cool place. I liked their "wildberry" flavor, which contains blackberry, raspberry, and one other berry I think.

          152 Fifth Ave, between Douglass and Degraw
          I just tried it this week - YUM
          Greek style yogurt (like Total Fage) but frozen. Not too sweet, nicely rich and tart.
          Not like cheesey fro yo tasteedeeelight places.
          Also not cheap - $4 for 6oz plain, toppings extra.

          They also sell a large range of "organic fair trade specialty teas", hot, cold, or dry for home-brew. The coffee was pretty good.

            I tried it the other day. Plain with organic strawberries. It reminded me of Pinkberry though it wasn't quite as firm. It could have just been the machine at the time.

            I really enjoyed it though. I love that the Greek style frozen yogurt isn't very sweet. More tart and refreshing. Unfortunately for my wallet it's become a bit of an addiction for me.

              def. the best frozen yogurt in brooklyn right now. and a lot of their fruit choices are organic. they have a new flavor now: key lime. i thought it would be awful but it's very very good. it is expensive but i have taken to buying it as my lunch...a large (and they will mix two flavors) with organic strawberries, organic blueberries and walnuts. unbelievably good. and now they have a frequent buyer card...you get a stamp whether it's a mini, reg. or large.

                I love Key Lime in general so I'll have to check that one out. It sounds great with the crushed grahams. I'll have to get a frequent buyer card next time.

                This is going to be a problem...;)

              I was there this morning, right as they opened. It is amazing. I don't think I can ever do Tastee Delite again. I just hope the succeed wildly and open another spot a bit closer to me.
              I had key lime yogurt with crushed graham crackers. Frozen key lime pie, extraordinary.

                We were there today for first time - had the plain - we hated it - absolutely hated it - strangest aftertaste ever experienced - had to run to Tempo Presto for pistachio gelato to get the Oko taste outta my mouth. OKO-NOGO

                  oh? i love the plain. it's sour like plain greek frozen yogurt.

                    I think maybe you don't like yogs so much, neighbor
                    (but that pistachio gelato is nice too. just not delightfully sour and tart.)

                      pitu - my Brooklyn nabe - au contraire - I'm a pinkberry addict - definitely two distinct tastes between pb plain and oko plain.
