MalayMail – 30 May 2016
KUALA LUMPUR, May 30 — You most probably have seen those monstrous milkshakes in a jar piled high with cream, cake and all kinds of crazy toppings on your Instagram feed.
Soon, those FreakShakes will be making their debut in Bangsar’s Pâtissez, the first Malaysian franchise of the Canberra cafe that started the craze.
The trademarked creations are the brainchild of Anna Petridis, who opened a cafe in Manuka, Canberra with her mother Gina in July 2015.
The duo had first debuted on the reality TV show My Kitchen Rules in February 2015.
Even though they were eliminated, they quickly gained a huge social media following for their over-the-top milkshakes piled with brownies, cakes and cookies that they call FreakShakes.
Many replicas have also been recreated all over the world including London and Los Angeles where the rule of the game is the more decadent the toppings, the better!
On our shores, local cafe Garage 51 had also jumped on the milkshake wagon by launching their “Messed Up Family” range of milkshakes last September.
Based on information from Pâtissez’s Facebook page, they expect to open on June 13.
Aside from their famous FreakShakes, they will also be serving tantalising cakes and savoury items like burgers and breakfast items.
The coffee is said to be brewed using ONA coffee by Sasa Sestic, the winner of the 2015 World Barista Championship.
