Mumbai loves it's food and there is always something new to look forward to in the city. Blending two decades (1950s-60s,) into its décor and format, is the city’s latest vintage inspired Retro American Diner and Milkshake Bar, Milkshake & Co that opened mid October in Lokhandwala. The Food Milkshake & Co is pitching itself as the city’s first milkshake bar and diner. A curated menu of over twenty milkshake flavours along with select few fast-food options makes this place worth a visit if you're in the mood for comfort food. Flavours you can expect are French Vanilla (which is actually green in colour and not white), Apple Pie, Biscuit Ice-cream, Caramel & Sea-Salt etc along with the regular favourites like Belgian chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla. Chef recommends their specialty Milkshakes , the Millionaire milkshake and the Cereal Milkshake. The Millionaire milkshake is a signature preparation made with the finest ingredients, a 24K edible gold leaf and Godiva/ Patchi/ Royal chocolates. Priced at INR 1500 for a glass, this milkshake is designed for a certain audience who would genuinely relish such extravagance in luxury fast food. The Cereal Milkshake made of corn cereal and lots of milk is a substitute for breakfast, a big fat happy shake that is filling and tastes just like the milk left after one finishes the cereal. You can pair the milkshakes with hot cheese fries and peri peri fries, ‘chibattis’ orcheese burgers and mac n cheese waffles: all prepared and served in the typical retro diner style- tall milkshake glasses served with a large portion of food. The Naked Cake (with a new flavor every now and then) shall be the sole dessert at the diner. The People And The Place The quick-service diner has been conceptualized by two friends, Tina Bakshi (who has set out to fulfill her dream of opening an American diner in India) and Chef Rahul Ramnani(who has previously worked at Noma, Copenhagen, SCAFA Dubai & Ellipsis, Mumbai). Milkshake & Co has worked with The Artisan Atelier (luxury vintage design company) to create the retro look. The diner features eclectic pastel décor, in pop colours of bright yellow and white and the seating is located at the upper level. The large service counter has mixers and grinders on display with an all female servers team dressed in retro styled checked shirts whisking away milkshakes and taking orders. A huge neon board symbolizing the milkshake glass stands out at its glass entrance. Address: Shop no 4, Nebula co-operative housing society, lokhandwala market, Andheri west.
