Over the Top Milkshakes at Benjamin Browns

Have been wanting to try the pretty looking OTT milkshakes from Benjamin Browns since it's sudden surge in popularity on social media. As we're not prepared to brave the long queues, we waited for the initial hype to fizzle out before making a trip down.

The smallish restaurant is tucked away at a corner of the Forum Shopping mall.

It was not very crowded when we arrived at about 7pm, but it did get busy from 7.30pm onwards. Do try to make reservations if you have a big group as there are limited seating available inside.

Complimentary ice water was served to every table, check out the tiny red star on the glass. We quickly browse the menu and ordered two of their popular OTT milkshakes to share, and also main courses for each of us.

We thought the shakes would take a while to construct but they came rather fast, even before our appetizer was served. Presenting...Nutella Banana shake and Old School Vanilla shake, $16++ each, standing tall with overflowing amount of assorted confectioneries as toppings.

These photogenic shakes took us quite some time to finally complete photo taking. Fortunately, the toppings stayed put till the very end phew! Both of these OTT milkshakes tasted fine for me, sweet but pleasantly flavorful. I like picking the toppings out to munch on. Great dish for the desserts lovers.

Main courses and appetizer were served while we're busy de-constructing the OTT shakes. We had Pork chops with mash potatoes $25++ and Sizzling beef chunks $25++, and a Truffle fries $15++ for sharing.

My Pork chop was delish, meat was tender and well marinated, the sweet potato mash was sweet and creamy too. The Beef chunks were a hit with my friend who loved her beef to be juicy and slightly undercooked. I didn't touch the Truffle fries as it was covered with shredded parmesan cheese, but my friends thought it was pretty decent.

Although the fanciful milkshakes are a little overpriced, Benjamin Browns is actually a good place to enjoy affordable and decent food. We redeemed 1 for 1 vouchers from The Entertainer App for the mains, and paid below $40 per head for a rather satisfying meal.
