New Glasfurd & Walker-Designed Ice Cream Parlour UYU Opening Soon On Abbott

IMG_0797
by Andrew Morrison | First timers Kevin Lee and Namgil Lee are opening a 755 sqft premium soft serve ice cream parlour called UYU at 433 Abbott Street in Gastown early next month (the same block as Tacomio and the second location of Prado).

From what I gather they’ll be offering house-made soft serve ice cream and customizable ice cream bars (both using organic milk) that are first dunked in either white or dark chocolate before being dressed with customer-determined toppings. The brand concept is being executed by Glasfurd & Walker with an interior by Michael Leckie of Campos Leckie Studio (see also Small Victory), so trust for a tightly-wrought look and feel. More soon.
