MakeShake at Jurong Point turned one in Jan this year. This is a great concept - customise your own milkshake any way you like! And so far, it's the only one I know of in Singapore. I just wish it wasn't so far away in the West in Boon Lay! They need an outlet in Changi Airport, I say. And maybe 112 Katong.
Their malted vanilla ice cream is homemade and lower in sugar, so you can taste more vividly the ingredients you add to it. You can pick from a base (vanilla, chocolate or frozen yoghurt), add flavours and toppings.
If you prefer, you can opt for any of the suggested flavour combinations. Set menus take the guesswork out of things, although mix and match choices are pretty safe too, generally. Can't really go wrong, unless you have my talent too.
From the preset menu, I liked the Banana Rama (banana and caramel) more than I thought I would. The Simply Marshella (nutella and marshmallows) sounded unbeatable, but I ended up preferring the Supernana Nana (strawberry and banana). So go ahead and give different flavours a try. You never know what you are going to like.
What they also have is the waffle hotdog (S$1.90 per stick or S$1.50 with any shake), which you must try! The waffle casing is hot and crisp on the outside, but fluffy inside. I reckon it's not easy to get right as the waffle is quite thin! The savoury sausage goes really well with the slightly sweet waffle.
And yes, this is a giveaway. Thanks to Chief Milkshaker Seth Lui, I am giving out ten mini milkshakes (like the cups you see above - and that's a six-year old child's hand for comparison). Just comment below what unique flavour combination you'd go for, and email me your entry at camemberu @ gmail.com with the subject title "MakeShake Giveaway", so I can notify you if you win. Easy peasy.
As usual, I will have the same giveaway running on Facebook, so you can have an extra chance winning there. Closing date: noon, 24 April 2014. Winners will be notified by email or Facebook.
Watch their Facebook page and blog for promos! MakeShake also does bulk delivery for private events and functions too.
