Crazy Shakes

Black Tap

This burger place is known for its crazy monster milkshakes. The shakes themselves kind of qualify as a full dessert. My favourite is the birthday cake, but cookies and cream supreme or the Brooklyn Blackout are a fan fave.

The Marsh Me Allow shake is made with marshmallows combined with homemade cookies, nutella, hazelnut and caramel ice cream. Garnished with mixed candies and a chocolate coated on the glass wall. It's tasty, it's crazy and it's a lot of fun.

The Shake Colony (best value for money)

This recently opened Milkshake shop is a small little spot in the heart of Qusais. They serve various different milkshake flavours and crazy shakes for a good price. The regular shakes cost Dh7, while the crazy shakes start at Dh9.

One of the first spots to introduce the crazy milkshake to Dubai, Fume is an oldie but a goodie, with lots of delicious flavours. Try the bronut monster shake if you want something crazy, filling and that just tastes good.

Ice Lab

I disocvered ice lab on Instagram, as one does. And went to visit their little shop in the most random residential area in Meydan. They make a huge selection of shakes, served in a glass Nutella like jar. The crowd favourite is the Lotus with Nutella, but you can explore an entire list of different shake flavours including pistachio, Ferrero Rocher, Galaxy and popcorn just to name a few.

Circle Café

This monster shake is on their secret menu, which means you have to make a special request when you are ordering your food. It is huge and good for more than two people.

Moylos (great taste)

One of my favourite burger spots in Dubai also makes a mean milkshake. These are more substance over style, as the milkshakes are slightly tamer than what you would expect a crazy shake to look like, but they taste amazing.

Location Jumeirah Beach Road, near Sunset Mall Cost varies Timings Daily from 12pm to 2am

Sugar Moo

This dessert parlour introduced shakes into their repetoire a few years back, but they are still favourites and totally instagrammable. Lotus all the way for me.
