When I was a child, my Grandfather, on hot days in North Texas, would make peach ice cream from scratch. Grandmother would mix all of the ingredients (whole milk, fresh eggs, fresh peaches,sugar and so on) and Grandpa would crush a 10 pound or larger block of ice and prepare the hand cranked ice maker for action. It took a few hours and not a little elbow grease but in the end it was worth it.
I had just this in mind when I went to Millions of Milkshakes in the Dubai Mall, just across the hall from the Aquarium and around the corner from Brunetti’s Cafe, and so I ordered a plain peach milkshake without additional frills or other distractions from the peachy keen peach flavor that I was in search of. Unfortunately, I didn’t find it, but what I did find was pleasant. See the photos. (Other photos of the mall and milkshakes can be found on my Flickr.)
Millions of Milkshakes offers a truly splendid array of milkshakes for the milkshake gourmets of the world. There is also a Millions of Milkshakes in West Hollywood and additional Millions of Milkshakes are planned for Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain. And the prices are quite reasonable, too. Check out the menu here: Millions of Milkshakes menu.
Millions of Milkshakes is the place to be in Dubai and has both welcomed and been promoted by such noted internationals as Kim Kardashian. It seems as though truly famous people just can’t stay away from the place. In fact, she (Kim) even did a promo video that was aired in 150 countries worldwide, but you probably can’t see it because you don’t have permission and you can get permission because you’re not on the “A List” of who’s cool and who’s not.
Even though only important people like Kim Kardashian have permission to see it, you can still imagine what it would be like to view it. Go ahead, use your imagination-pretty girl, not too bright, no employable job skills, long beautiful black hair, big brown eyes, bigger boobs, not known for any noteworthy accomplishments in life and a beautiful smile sucking up a milkshake.
I of course have to use my imagination. And, since I don’t watch much on TV I also had to google Kim Kardashian to find out who she is. Turns out she IS a pretty brunette with big brown eyes and bigger boobs who is known for being known and little else.
What a life. Is America a great country or what? Oops, I meant Dubai, Arab Emirates.
But they do have good milkshakes and, while you probably won’t meet Kim Kardashian or any other Hollywood (or Bollywood personalities either), there is a good chance you’ll meet many nice folks from many developing countries around the world who work in Dubai because most of the natives have so much money coming in from oil that they don’t work. In addition to the folks who actually work there, there are many tourists from Middle Eastern and other predominantly Arab Muslim countries as well. If you enjoy people, you can buy a milkshake and sit and watch nicely groomed people and families dressed in ways you might never see in Harrison, Arkansas quietly enjoying the sights.
There you have it. If you can afford a couple of thousand dollars US to fly to Dubai, Millions of Milkshakes in the Dubai Mall is the place to go for milkshakes.
