Shake It Milk Shop

How many times can you drive past a sign in Mexico that says, "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard," before curiosity takes over?


I'd been dying to check this place out for obvious reasons. I wasn't positive what Shake It Milk Shop would be like but I had some assumptions. A few weeks back I finally convinced Ray to take me there and it ended up being a really interesting experience! I was surprised at what I saw when we walked in...








It was totally not what I expected, especially not in Juárez. But I guess I should learn by now that I can't make assumptions about this city. It surprises me more everyday!

The two young ladies working were very sweet and helpful, explaining the menu to us. The possibilities were literally endless! Skittles milkshakes, Cap'n Crunch milkshakes, Ferrero Rocher milkshakes...




I was having trouble deciding until the word Nutella popped out at me. Duh.




Right after snapping this picture of Ray in front of the jukebox (his idea, I swear) we peeked through that glass door behind him. It almost looked like it was a... museum? Weird. So we ask the gals behind the counter if we can check it out and they gave us the go ahead.




Sure enough, it was the Museo del Concorde that one of my blog readers had told me about last year! Such an awkward entrance... If I was at all interested in avionics or engineering I might consider this to be the Secret Garden of Juarez.


Me still trying to get over the fact that this was what
 was behind the back door of the 50's malt shop in Mexico.


After paying a 10 peso donation and watching a short film about the Concorde, we wandered the museum a bit before realizing that my milkshake was probably starting to melt. We came back to the table to find our order ready to go and the check in a cute little metal gift box. 




I ordered the Bill Haley malteada which was Nutella and peanut butter. It was beyond delicious. Just imagine the Holy Spirit. In your mouth. Gordo got a Neopolitano cappuccino because he's too cool for milkshakes.  

My shake was 55 pesos and the cappuccino was 30 pesos. A bit pricey for us to go on the regular but certainly a fun place to splurge at once in a while. They also serve some light meals like paninis and croissants. I loved the theme of course and the service was impeccable so we'll definitely be going back.

    1. You should. It's not far from the consulate either. Just a few miles North on the same street.
