Milksha uses taro that are imported from Dajia (大甲) in Taichung, Taiwan. The taro are then steamed and hand-mashed daily at outlets. The fresh taro milk is mildly sweetened, rich and creamy. It’s just like drinking orh nee from a cup except it is not as thick. A little pricey but considering they use quality ingredients with pure fresh milk and imported taro, it is still worth the indulgence 》$5.60

🍗Grilled Chicken
Quite skeptical about their grilled chicken when the staff recommended this dish, cos what is so special about grilled chicken right or not~🤣

But was pretty impressed after the first bite.

The chicken was nicely grilled, a little crispy on the surface, while being tender and juicy inside. The chef did a great job in handling it, kudos!

It was well-marinated, one can simply eat it on its own without feeling it too bland or too salty. The mushroom sauce was a plus-point, nice complement to the chicken, enhancing and adding fun to the taste indeed.

The grilled chicken also comes with some roasted potatoes, french beans, babycorn and cherry tomato, those were pretty decent, quite standard.

This dish I like~ Would recommend to try this dish!

🥣Mentaiko Scallops
The scallops were grilled to point, pretty fresh and juicy, and having that mentaiko sauce on top of it, delish! Nothing beats mentaiko sauce seriously, find this dish good for sharing~

🦀Soft Shell Crab Mantou with Chilli Crab Sauce
As for the soft shell crab mantou, while they look cute and pleasant to the eyes, find the fried mantou and the soft shell crab a little greasy.

Not sure is it because we left it for a while, or maybe cos the mantou was fried stuff and so was the soft shell crab, it turned out to be a little surfeiting.

Thinking would it be better if they use steamed mantou with soft shell crab or maybe we shld just try their smoked duck mantou next time.

Apart from the above, find the chilli crab sauce a bit off from the actual chilli crab I know. It’s not as sweet & sour as a tomato sauce, neither was it as spicy as a chilli sauce, it’s a bit in between, more like a sweet sauce. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not unpalatable, it’s just not the “chilli crab sauce” I’m familiar with.🙊

🍢Skewers
Their skewers came with different types of sauce/seasonings to choose from, mainly the homemade Thai sauce, teriyaki sauce, mala, Asian BBQ sauce and salt & pepper.

We tried some of the skewers with their Thai sauce, teriyaki sauce, mala and salt & pepper.

🍖Thai-style Marinated Pork
Out of the skewers that we have ordered, find their Thai-style marinated pork the best, like really! And for the price, it’s like so much worth it than the rest (which we ordered)...

The pork was not greasy, not fatty, absence of that unpleasant porky smell, it’s tender and juicy, tasted almost like chicken meat! Not sure which part of the pork it was, I could not tell any fatty parts in it too!

The sauce coated on the pork tasted like Thai sweet sauce with a bit of smoky flavour...

This skewer, I like too!

🍄Shitake Mushrooms Skewer (with salt & pepper)
Friends had the mushroom skewer and find it a little too salty to their likings.

🥓Bacon-wrapped Enoki (with salt & pepper)
A little disappointed by the portion of the skewer, looks a bit pathetic. We don’t remember getting the salt & pepper seasoning but it tasted so.

The bacon was already salty, not a good move to sprinkle more salt on it, lucky we got beer coming to the rescue~

🍡Chicken Skin (with teriyaki sauce)
Friend tried this and find it quite standard, can order/ can skip...

🍗Chicken Thigh (with homemade Thai sauce)
The chicken thigh skewer with Thai sauce was quite decent, the chicken was a little firmer, and tasted more towards the sweeter note.

🍗Chicken Thigh (with mala seasonings)
The mala seasonings tasted like a mixture of mostly cumin and some chilli powder, doesn’t taste quite like mala, a little disappointed in this context. Otherwise the chicken thigh was quite okay.

🧀Cheese Tofu (with homemade Thai sauce)
Lastly, for the cheese tofu with Thai sauce, not sure why this combi just gave that sour note, not that pleasant though, suggest to skip.

Service:
Friendly, approachable and attentive staff! They went that extra mile to help us with celebrating our friend’s birthday (i.e. played background birthday song, prepared HBD wordings’ LED light boards, got us “firework” candle and everyone sang HBD song for my friend, without us requesting for it)!

Really appreciate their effort!💯

Note: They can be quite pack over the weekend, do make reservation to avoid any disappointment! Understand that they have promo till end April 2021, for min. 3 pax with total spending of $50 on food items, you will get a 2 litres beer tower for free...

Overall, some hits and misses, but still quite recommend this place to chill & have a drink with friends...

We ordered a steamed crab and a chilli crab but we requested to choose the crabs. Within about 2 mins of selecting the crabs, both crab dishes were served. We told the waiter that they are definitely not the crabs that we selected as the dishes were served too soon. The waiter told us they served to the wrong table and returned them to the kitchen.

After 40 mins, the crab dishes were still not served so we informed the staff. At 930pm, both crabs were served but to our horror, the crabs were the same as what they had served us earlier on!!!!! Pls refer to the pictures attached. As seen in the pictures, they merely added the garnish for the steamed crab.

How unethical is this of the Chefs. Besides refusing to recook the crabs for us, they left our crabs in the kitchen for a good 40 minutes and served to us. Thankfully, we took pictures and this had served as a useful piece of evidence. When we showed the pictures to the manager, Carol, she initially denied and claimed that their Chefs are always able to serve the dishes in a short time. We told her to allow us to see how the Chefs are able to steam crabs in 2 minutes. This was when she was caught dumbfounded.

The ricotta cheese added a wonderful dimension to the toast topped with lightly sweetened pear slices. Didnt really need the maple syrup.
