Milkshake Lab, The Yard

"Their milkshakes brings all the boys to the yard.."
Seriously, I can't believe they didn't use this as their tagline! :P

The Yard is an industrial themed food park located at 83 Xavierville, Loyola Heights, Quezon City. It opened last June 18 and houses over 30 stalls offering a variety of dining options (each one is different!)

The entire park is built from container vans; the stalls are small but there's ample seating all over the compound. The vibe is very laid back and hip. They even have DJs and live bands playing on the weekends! It's a great hang-out place, especially among students in the area - I wish we had something like this when I was still in college. Oh well. I guess I can always visit The Yard and pretend to be eighteen. Haha.
Milkshake Lab
Milkshake Lab is the glass box located at the very center of The Yard. It's the only place with airconditioning there and they serve the best Butter Pecan Caramel Milkshake I've ever tasted!

Well, it's the only Butter Pecan Caramel Milkshake I've ever tried, but that's besides the point!

The owner, Gillian Hizon, took up Pastry Arts at the International School for Culinary Arts and Hotel Management (ISCAHM) and incorporated her knowledge on baking into drinks - so Milkshake Lab was born.

Their Butter Pecan Caramel Milkshake has a caramel base topped with whipped cream, pecan, and corn flakes.

What's unique about this drink is that it's served with a syringe filled with caramel syrup!

Drizzle some (or all of it) on top of your milkshake, sip, and enjoy!

Their other concoctions include: S'mores, Red Velvet, White Chocolate Macademia, and Tiramisu.

You can also create your own "Experiment." Start with a base (vanilla, chocolate, caramel, or strawberry for P90) then add in the "Active Ingredients" of your choice! Pick from M&M's, Twix, Reese's, Maltesers, Buncha Crunch, Oreo, or KitKat for P20 each.

They also serve numerous Lab Smoothies for P80. Go for either Mango, Melon, Watermelon, Grape, Banana, or Strawberry.
