Beverage: Klebang Original Coconut Milkshake @ Klebang, Melaka


We're back from our getaway to Bandung, and so it's back to regular programming on the blog! :p

Melaka is one of our favourite weekend getaways - be in for a short one night stay, or even a day trip - largely due to the fact that there's so much good food to sample. It's also where we usually bring our overseas guests, to see another part of Malaysia other than just Kuala Lumpur. This trip, however, I was getting a little tired of the same places, Jonker88, satay celup, the works.

Determined to try something new in Melaka, I did a bout of googling on 'good food in Melaka' and found the Klebang Original Coconut Shake, which many raved about, including my second brother.



The route from our hotel to Jalan Klebang Besar looked straightforward enough on the map, but just to be sure I whatsapp-ed my brother to confirm if there were any landmarks.

"The landmark is the long queue... you can't miss it!" he replied. Feeling rather confident, we went on our way.



As luck would have it, there was no queue on the day we went because it was pouring heavily!

A more foolproof landmark would be a Caltex petrol station; if you're coming from the direction of Melaka Town, the Klebang Original Coconut Milkshake is right before the station on your right on the other side of the road.



The process looks simple enough, but apparently none have managed to recreate this milkshake successfully. Ice cubes are blended with lots and lots of vanilla ice cream and fresh coconut juice and flesh. The blended mixture is then poured into another funnel-looking mixer.



From there, the mixer does it's magic, and the milkshake is poured out through a little tap attached to the mixer. And voila, one Klebang Original Coconut Milkshake!



The mixture of coconut and vanilla was good together - the milkiness from the vanilla ice cream, fresh sweetness of the coconut juice and little bits of coconut flesh in my milkshake.

I can imagine this would be a dream come true on a hot day, an ice-cold, refreshing drink although it was freezing when we were having our milkshakes. I found that after I let the ice melt a little, it tasted better - the flavours were more well-meshed together and the coconut freshness more pronounced. :D



A nice thing to try, if you've just about had it with the usual Melaka food. Sometimes, it's just nice to get out of the way a little and (milk)shake things up a little!
