If the heat outside is killing you already, we recommend this new milkshake place in town. Try out Milkshake and Co. on Elliot’s Beach, the newest kid on the block. After a string of outlets by Keventers, Frozen Bottle and The ThickShake Factory last year, this year started with pan-India milkshake chain Milkshake and Co. opening its first outlet in Besant Nagar.

Instead of the ‘take your glass-bottle home’ trend that was at an all-time peak last year, this place serves its shakes in funky pop art paper glasses. Each shake has a pop-character or personality associated with it, whose face you will find on the cup. Be ready to get The Legend (Rock salt and caramel) shake with Marvel creator, Stan Lee’s face in vibrant colours and Green Devil (Mint and Chocolate) will have a Frankenstein on it. We also loved their stunning Hazelnut Cold Coffee and also they have lovely Lemonade choices.

Milkshake And Co. started as a pop-up store operating out of flea markets in the parking lots of north London underground stations. It was a master plan to make a quick buck so that it’s then college-going founder, Kabir Singh could indulge in buying that pair of sneakers or that puffed up the bomber jacket. From those humble beginnings in 2001, they started out as a chain in 2015 in India and are now operating 15 stores across Hyderabad, Vijaywada, Chandigarh, Ludhiana and now in Chennai.

They offer more than 30 flavours of milkshakes spread across four categories – Originals, Chocolate, Fruity and Confectionery. Each cup of shake has a dollop of cream that coats the rim of each shake cup and you can find a sprinkling of cake crumbs on it.

Also do try their Jalapeno Cheese Fries and Veg Deluxe Burger along with the shake.
