$8.00 – 26 January 2018
While I was assured by the very friendly and bubbly waitress that the ‘Our milkshake is better than yours’ with labneh, honey, cinnamon and homemade churros was the best option on the menu, I insisted on the chocolate milkshake as this is the basis on which I can compare milkshakes across establishments and frappistas.
The milkshake came in a glass jar and the volume was small-to-medium. The flavouring was a powdered based chocolate which made for a different flavour to the typical sauce based milkshake but was still very nice. The strength of flavour was perfect and the milkshake was nice and cold. The bubble distribution was good as was the mouth feel.
However, there was a small amount of graininess to the milkshake which suggests that either the frappista used ice to get the temperature down or the ice cream itself was grainy. Ice is categorically never allowed in a milkshake – this is non-negotiable and would impact a rating severely. However, in this circumstance the graininess was hardly noticeable so I am prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Overall, despite the graininess, the milkshake was very easy drinking.
