Yul Kwon’s Red Mango in Palo Alto

I read last week that Yul Kwon, most known as the winner of “Survivor: Cook Islands,” had opened a Red Mango in downtown Palo Alto. Ernie had posted previously that Kwon had trouble opening a Red Mango in San Francisco due to the city’s strict zoning restrictions against chain stores.

I first heard of Red Mango when I had written about Pinkberry being highlighted in an American Express commercial. Being new to the Korean export of frozen yogurt, I decided to drop by downtown Palo Alto Sunday afternoon to try for myself this frozen delight. We’ve been experiencing a heat wave the past few days in the Bay Area, so the store was pretty crowded. I got my original small yogurt with strawberries, and just loved it. The strawberries were fresh and very sweet and a nice compliment to the frozen yogurt. The Red Mango is not too far from the Apple store in downtown Palo Alto, right on University Avenue. I think it’ll be a big hit given its location and tasty treats.

While waiting in line, I saw that the store had a Danoo video screen – the first time I saw a Danoo enabled HDTV screen in a real setting. Danoo is a company my friend co-founded.
