Sohha Savory Yogurt – Fantastic NYC Local Yogurt
For the past few years, I’ve been on a Greek yogurt kick because I adore the thick, tangy yogurt that tastes great on its own maybe with a touch of honey at most or even used for baking purposes to make it a little bit healthier.
Then you know about the large brand Chobani that opened its first shop about two years ago in SoHo, NYC. While their yogurts are good, I didn’t like the restrictions of what you had to order and most of the time. Their menu rarely change but I liked the fact they introduced us to a few savory options with yogurt.
However, I came across Sohha Savory Yogurt, a small, local brand of Greek-style yogurt that emphasizes the lack of use of preservatives, gelatin, sugar, or any thickeners. It’s just the milk from an upstate New York dairy farm and natural enzymes to create the yogurt. Maybe a touch of salt at most but nothing else goes in their yogurt.
I visited Sohha’s stand found within Chelsea Market the past weekend and was astounded by how incredibly rich, creamy and flavorful their plain and tangy yogurts were. The plain is what you’re familiar with but the tangy has an extra little twangy bite that is best for savory applications.
So the latter I did start my early Saturday morning with. The Za’atar Bliss Cup ($7) blew my mind how great it was. Incredibly zesty, briny, flavorful with a touch of freshness from the fresh chopped mint. I wish I had pita chips to dip in there and I would be a very happy camper.
There are the familiar sweet options of a plain yogurt with chocolate and fresh fruit that my friend had. The plain yogurt was incredibly delicious. Rich and creamy with a touch of tang but not as noticeable compared to the tangy yogurt I had, and the sweetness of the fruit and chocolate balances it out.
We also split the very tasty Hot Harissa Wrap that’s packed with lots of fresh vegetables and flavor from their homemade harissa (they do sell it by the jar) and the whole wheat wrap gave it substance.
I did bring back home another Za’atar Bliss Cup to introduce it to one of my Greek yogurt loving friends and containers of each of their plain and sea salt yogurts ($8 each) to not just eat, but bake with very soon and I can almost imagine how it would elevate my desserts so much more because the yogurt is phenomenal.
