Once Upon A Milkshake @ Suria KLCC

This chapter of a foodie's fairy-tale unfolds in the Kingdom of KLCC, where Singaporean brand Once Upon A Milkshake opened its first Malaysian outpost this month.

 Milkshakes here seem nearly enchanted, concocted with house-made ice cream & low-fat milk for a lush, spellbinding creaminess.

The list of flavors might be longer than Rapunzel's locks; standouts include peanut butter, Milo, Nutella, salted caramel, butterscotch, caffe mocha, nougat & red velvet.

 Durian milkshake, available in 'light,' 'normal' & 'strong' pungencies. We braved the most perilous & fearsome of them all; why not, right?

 None of these costs a king's ransom; a small serving starts at merely RM6.90.

    1. Ulric: seems like klcc is the ideal location for a dairy-food raid! But yeah, I was initially ambitious and wanted to try at least 10 of the milkshake flavors, but after having seven, we were all shaked out. They were quite rich :p

  5. I do like milkshakes. I would most likely love the butterscotch one, as I love butterscotch pudding and butterscotch ice cream. :)
