Yard of Milkshake @ Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa – Kota Kinabalu

MYR 28 – 9 September 2017

Ordering a milkshake in Malaysia is fraught with danger. The milkshake culture isn’t strong. But if it was going to work somewhere, it is probably the ice cream bar at the Shangri-La.

The service was friendly (they threw in some free choc chips) but overall the milkshake was watery and based on soft serve ice cream, not the real stuff. Commendable effort on the Hershey’s chocolate sauce though.

The (re-usable) plastic straw had a bad taste, which is a terrible surprise. Straws play a simple role of getting the shake from the cup to the mouth. They shouldn’t get soggy midway and they definitely shouldn’t have any taste. The customer gets to keep the whole vessel, which was a nice gimmick.

Despite some of the flaws, this was a refreshing milkshake.
