Singapore, your milkshake does not bring the boys to the yard.
I'm sorry. I had to say it. I loved that song back in the day.
But honestly, the milkshakes here are pretty lame.
I didn't even know I cared that much until a fellow blogger asked me the other day if I'd found a decent milkshake in this country. The blogger, we'll call him Greg because that's his name, has been on a quest for a milkshake that doesn't make him have to fly over the big blue ocean to find it. (And no, McDonald's doesn't count. That's a mix; it's not authentic.)
Oh and you should check out Greg's blog too. He's an American guy in Singapore and he lives in another neck of the jungle. So he has a whole other perspective of the island.
But back to what I was sayin....
Greg wants a good milkshake and he can't find one.
And now I want one too. It sounds so good after walking around in this heat everyday.
Our beef with the local milkshakes? I think they take the name too literally. They taste like flavored milk that's been shaken up. No thickness. No ice cream. No brain freeze.
The stuff doesn't even get stuck in the straw.
What's up with that?
Even Dairy Queen messed it up on Orchard Road.
I know, right? I couldn't believe it either.
My latest milkshake test was last week. My friend from work treated me to Haagen-Dazs at Junction 8 Shopping Mall. We both ordered the Belgian chocolate milkshakes (pictured above).
While the Belgian chocolate part of the equation was delicious, the shake was still merely cold shaken milk.
It was a giant tease. No one likes a tease either.
So, if you know of a place that serves real milkshakes on this island. I think you would be our new best friend if you wrote it in the comments section.
