What's Shaken Milkshake Bar - Yaletown
Truth be told: I'm not big on milkshakes. They fill me up so quickly that I usually end up skipping my next meal haha. But on Yelp people have been raving about Whats Shaken, and since I was in Yaletown that they, I decided to give them a try! They're right across from Emery Banes Park, so you can enjoy your smoothie outside in the sun! :D
Service was pretty awkward. Walking in the guy manning the counter didn't acknowledge me or say hello, he just stared at me blankly. And it was unbearably hot and stuffy. Within 2 mins, I was sweating bullets. They really need some air con in there!
The cool thing about What's Shaken is that it's completely customizable and they have vegan, gluten free, dairy free options too! The ice cream they use is Sara's Old Fashioned Icecream, quality stuff!

Mango Lassi (Small)
This was delish! This totally makes up for the nonexistant service haha! The mango lassi has vanilla icecream, mango, milk, and cardamon in it. The shake was REALLY thick and really sweet! It was well blended and there weren't any chunks. The cardamon element was really potent which partially masked the mango. This was the mini size, but it was still really satisfying nonetheless!
