A Different Experience at Shakeaway

by - Monday, June 19, 2017

There are places that you can't wait to return to, and there are places that you swear never to. This is a story of a place I never thought I'd be in again, and how I ended up in the same place, only in a different branch, and how I walked out with a whole new memory. 

I found myself inside the newest branch of Shakeaway in BGC. You'd think that I wouldn't be excited about it, but I was. I was thrilled about this new experience, and how it will go. 

We were briefed on the recommended items across all categories on the menu. This took some time since they offer A LOT. They have different types and combinations of shakes, smoothies, shaved ice, and yoghurt to choose from. You can also opt to be creative and invent your own shake from hundreds of ingredients and toppings they have available. For the adventurous ones, you might want to try their gimik shake "Wicked Wendy", which consists of frozen peas, pickled onions and whipped cream. 

Davina Yogurt
I was thinking of having the Dave shake, since I love all the chocolates in it, but it was also the one I ordered before. Plus, a member of our team has already ordered one, so I gave the menu another look. I didn't want to have the same order as before and as someone else on the team (since we'll share the drinks anyway). Instead, I wanted to be the brave soul who asked for a unique item, so I ended up with the most recommended fit and healthy shake and just hoped for the best xD

I tried a lot of items that day, but I'm just going to mention my favorites.

Ivy P250 (regular) P310 (large)

Ivy is composed of banana, kale and mango. This was surprisingly delicious! I know it's healthy, but it sure didn't seem like it. And I wasn't the only one from the group who loved Ivy, so I know it's great even for those who can't bare the healthy stuff. I'm glad I was brave enough to order this. 

Ferrero rocher, kinder bueno, crumbled cadbury flakes on top. Dave was also good. It was better than when I first tried it.

 At first glance, the shakes may seem pricey. Well, if you think about all the ingredients they put in one cup and how generous they are with all of it, then I guess that pretty much justifies their pricing.

Lastly, don't expect your usual milkshakes from Shakeaway. It's not the typical milky, creamy and thick shakes we normally have, but rather a lumpy, more of a liquid form of shake. This might be unsettling at first, but you'll learn to love it once you get the taste of all your favorite ingredients in your cup. 

None of us was brave enough to order wicked wendy, but who knows, maybe I'll next time I'll feel like a badass and get one? :p

My Scores:
Pricing - 3.5/5
Ambiance - 4/5
Service - 4/5
Taste - 4/5
