Where We Are Going Today: Shakelicious

  • Shakelicious employs a “create-your-own” model that allows you to assemble your ultimate milkshake

When I stumbled across Shakelicious quite by chance, it was one of the happiest accidents of my life.

We arrived at the colorful cafe in the Al-Rawdah district of Jeddah with no expectations. The first thing we noticed was that the interior of the cafe is very colorful and cheery, which is sure to rid you of any bad mood you might be feeling. There are also two wooden panels on opposite sides of the shop where customers can place sticky notes with any messages they want to leave.

Shakelicious employs a “create-your-own” model that allows you to assemble your ultimate milkshake. A wide variety of candy bars are laid out on the counter from which you can choose your favorites to add to the vanilla ice-cream that forms the basis of the shake, to create the perfect milkshake to suit your taste.

There are other delicious treats on the menu, too, for those looking for more than a milkshake, including a delicious fennel cake with soft-serve ice-cream, which can also be customized by adding your favorite candy.

To top it all off, the staff are all very friendly and help to make the experience of creating your perfect milkshake even more enjoyable.

Where We Are Going Today: Trend

As its name suggests, this is a restaurant that aims to set trends, with its distinctive meals and desserts, that others will want to follow.

At Trend, it is the little details and twists they put on familiar dishes that make all the difference, such as the blueberry sauce burger, wraps held together with pegs, black pasta and multicolored burger buns. However, it is not only the presentation of the food that sets Trend apart, but also the quality and originality of the flavors.

The restaurant also has a unique way of serving food: It is placed in layers in a tin that is placed upside down on your plate, and when it arrives at the table you lift the tin and let the layers spread out.

They also have Instagram-worthy menu options such as the Gold Burger, which is served with edible gold leaf on top of the bun. The location, in Beach Tower, on Corniche Road in Jeddah’s Ash Shati district, is also photo friendly and the perfect place to relax.
