Once Upon a Milkshake

Made an impromptu trip to Once Upon a Milkshake for a pre-dinner snack, after the extreme gruelling Saturday lecture. It's located at the very hard to find Maxwell Chambers, and although we missed the turn and made a huge loop, the trip was more than worth it.
I had Agent Strawberry - 100% fresh strawberries, which beats all the other strawberry milkshakes I've had hands down. The milkshake is thick, creamy and is not frothy at all. The milkshake is so thick that you have to suck really hard on the straw. My strawberry milkshake was smooth and creamy, and had just the right sweetness.

Grumbling Raisins: Flavourful rum with rum-soaked raisins
This is exactly like rum and raisin ice cream, but in the milkshake form. I could really taste the rum and raisins in the milkshake, and the alcohol content is just right - doesn't mask out the flavour of the raisins. I think that they should really have more alcoholic flavours like baileys cos it's sure to be a hit.
Nutty Peanut Butter: Smooth and Creamy peanut butter with crunchy peanuts
The Nutty Peanut Butter was rich and creamy, with lots and lots of peanut butter. I felt that it would have been even better if they had grape jam blended in, to form a peanut butter and jelly milkshake instead of a plain peanut butter milkshake.
Chocolate Truffle Castle: Mouth-watering chocolate with Truffle Bits
This is a definite must try for chocolate lovers - the chocolate taste is very strong, but it isn't so sweet that you feel full halfway before you're through.
Cerious Maple: Maple syrup with crunchy maple cereals
One of the more interesting milkshakes from OUaM, since I've never tried a maple flavoured milkshake before. The maple syrup is very fragrant, and I liked how they added cereal bits on top.
Other flavours which we didn't try were the Sir Cookies and Cream, Spooky Mocha, Vanilla pot and their new flavour, Pirate Peach Queen.
The very thoughtful people at OUaM every give out a 50cents carpark coupon so you can enjoy your milkshake in peace - and not worry about the carpark attendant.
Mini ($3.30 for 210ml) and Regular ($5.80? for 360ml) sizes
The place is really very pretty, with purple and white decor and interesting tables. I really liked their purple butterfly clock. It's a perfect chill-out place for a lazy weekend afternoon, or for post work dessert indulgences, though I'm sure that it'll be flooded in no time soon. Hope they open another branch at a more accessible place, so I'll be able to get my milkshake fix.
The milkshakes here are spectacular. It's not often that I feel compelled to return to a dessert place right after I've tried it, but I really felt like going back there after dinner, and very nearly went back there today (just that I was so stuffed from brunch, I didn't in the end). My favourite flavour was the strawberry (cos I really like desserts with strawberry), followed by the Nutty Peanut Butter and Grumbling Raisins. I could have totally easily had another 2 more minis, or 3 for the matter... One mini is definitely not enough. Especially since it's not cloyingly sweet like most other milkshakes.
I've just visited their website, and they actually make the ice cream themselves. I must really try the ice cream the next time I'm back. Which I hope, will be very, very soon.

sistafood: I like the strawberry, but i'm biased cos I usually go for strawberry milkshakes. Rum and Raisin is a must try, and chocolate is great too (but I'm usually not a chocolatey person).
sittingwishingeating: Hello! yup the decor is really ncie! I've added ur link to my blog :)
