STARR’S Famous Shakes — have you tried this milkshake place? My dear friend Jenn (The Techie Mom) and I were due for a much-belated reunion. When Starr’s opened up near where we both lived, we knew it was the perfect place to catch up. We got a cozy corner table and told stories to our hearts’ content while sipping on our delicious shakes.

Colorful paintings decorate the place. I was wishing it had a more ’80s vibe, as I was being transported back to when I was a kid. I remembered the Chok’lit Shoppe of Pop Tate’s where Archie and the Gang would hang out a lot. The corner booth near the Katy Perry portrait is where Jenn and I had our Mommy milkshake date.
Starr’s is a great place to hang out.
If I say Horlicks, you say…? If you thought “childhood” then we’re probably from the same generation. Jenn and I both got the RETRO MALT shake. It’s got Horlicks powder mixed in it. Just one sip and I was thrown back to my kiddie days. I used to enjoy nibbling on Horlicks candy. When it was no longer sold here in the Philippines, it broke my kiddie heart. That’s why when I saw Horlicks powder on the counter of Starr’s, I felt my 8-year-old heart was made whole again. Haha!
Starr’s Retro Malt Milkshake was so thick and yummy!
