- Sohha Savory Yogurt

Chobani may have won over New Yorkers with its Greek-style yogurt, but most have yet to adopt the Mediterranean custom of serving it in a savory way. Sohha’s founders aim to change that with their Chelsea Market stand, where they serve their made–in–Sunset Park strained yogurt with a bevy of toppings including avocado, black olives, and za’atar. Standard combinations include the Everything Bagel (garlic, onion, sesame seeds, etc.). Made with Hudson Valley Fresh milk, sea salt, and live cultures, the yogurt is produced in small batches and frequently; every cup is fresh and smooth, with a labnelike, exceptionally creamy texture.
