Starr's - literally STAR! I have been visiting several milkshake bars but so far this is the best among the rest. Combination of milk and mix-ins together with toppings will give you satisfaction. Would recommend it to all the kids and kids by heart. 10084

One of the best things about studying in a school that's just a few steps from Katipunan is having so many restaurants and cafes and all that just within reach. Starr's Famous Shakes might be all the way on the other side of Katipunan but its milkshakes are always worth it for me (for those unwilling to head there, there's always the new UP Town branch).

The Esteban Abada corner Rosa Alvero branch is small and only has a few tables. You'll be lucky to find even one empty when you visit. But I always like sitting on the bar stools so I can watch them make the milkshakes. And the jars of candies and chocolates are pretty to look at too!

I always opt to make my own shake and when I do, I always go for the latte flavored one. For someone who prefers tea over coffee, I really do love coffee-flavored sweets. I usually have almonds and crunch mixed in with my milkshake. Some might not think it's a good idea since the cold milkshake will harden the chocolate pieces but I don't really mind.

The Latte milkshake base is smooth, thick and has the right hint of coffee flavor. Almonds have a pretty strong flavor so for those who don't like it so much should be mindful when choosing it as a mix-in or topping.

For those who don't want to mix and match can pick one of the available flavors/combinations. I think you can never go wrong with choosing Caramel and Cookie Dough! There are sugar-free ones too for those who want to indulge with less guilt!

When I crave for milkshakes, this is where I always go. They have a wide variety of milkshakes you can choose from. And I love the toppings you can mix in in your milkshakes. Too many choices it's hard to pick just one 128513

I tried the Salted Brownie and Caramel Fudge milkshake. Then I added crushed peppermint candy in it, as usual. It was delightful. I was hesitant at first because I don't like caramel because it's too sweet. But it turned out good. There are cubes of salted brownies at the bottom of the drink. 5/5 for this drink!

Last night was actually a feast at Lola's hospital room as there were a lot of food for us to share over dinner.

We took out some pizzas from Domino's, bought pansit from our favorite panciteria in Marikina, had siopao from Hen Lin and a whole lot more. Our family gets even tighter with food, oh yes. Who doesn't, right?

So, as I was eating whatever there is at Lola's counter, my Tita offered me some corn dogs and I gladly accepted it. I am a fan of corn dogs and I couldn't say no to this even if I was already full.

I ate it even if it was cold already and still, I loved it! The hot dog's dough smelled really good! The hot dog tasted so yummy too. I can't actually identify what brand it is. The mixture of the dough with the hot dog was just so perfect for me.

At first, I thought it was just from wherever but when I saw the packaging of Starr's Famous Milkshakes, I felt that connection, that feeling of really loving something from the beginning and despite of not knowing that it's the same brand, once you've tasted it, the happy tummy feels are still the same.

My first ever try of Starr's corn dogs, yes, I can clearly remember that I instantly fell for them! The size isn't that big but is actually OK given its price.

Three pieces of corn dogs come in a very nicely packaged carton with pretty light blue colors and a sticker identifying what your order is. I really love this packaging of theirs. For to go orders, a ketchup comes in a plastic container too.

Well, aside from my crazy love for their corn dogs, Starr's do serve a lot of nice tasting milkshakes that you can actually enjoy with your friends during break time at school, or have these as desserts after eating out with your family or if you just simply want to forget about work, go for their drinks.

Yes, again and again, I would proudly say that I am such a fan of Starr's Famous Shakes and I wouldn't get tired of encouraging you all to try it as soon as you could!

Given that I am such a sucker for anything sweet, may that be cookies, cupcakes, cakes, macarons, milkshakes and a whole lot more, shops and restaurants that serve a lot of desserts from their menu is my weakness.

It's been a while since my last visit at Katipunan, which used to be my second home way back in college. Every once in a while, a new place to check out suddenly pops out and pulls me towards it.

When I got the time, I was so happy that I was able to go back at Starr's Famous Shakes, again! Located at Abada St., near Krazy Chicken and 711.

Starr's Famous Shakes' branch at Katipunan is a bit small. It can actually accommodate a max of almost 15 people and that's already jam-packed. Nevertheless, that's not a reason for people to not frequent the place.

The joint, despite being small, looks really cute and nicely decorated. The interiors were simple but matched really well with the place. The lighting was well and gave the place more character. The simple yet matching furniture gave it more life and identity.

Upon checking the menu, you'll be overwhelmed with what the shop has to offer. From a variety of milkshakes for chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, milky lovers to some snack items like corn dogs and fries, Starr's Famous Shakes is a good place for desserts or light snacks after a busy, hectic day at school or work.

What makes it more fun for guests is the fact that while waiting for your orders, you can enjoy watching the staff to create your loved drinks as you get to see the bottles of all the syrups, mixtures, etc. that they use to give it that flavor!

I ordered the Chocolate Cookie Dough and man, as certain as I was, it was so good and never did disappoint. The thickness of the shake looked really pretty and its milkiness was balanced with the flavor of the chocolate cookie. I loved how its sweetness isn't that much to make me feel full easily. More than that, I liked its presentation and the personalized Starr's cup.

Too bad the corn dogs weren't available when we visited but hey, don't miss out ordering those because they're cheaply priced but are really really good!

Yes, fan of Starr's Famous Shakes here!

Hay, Starr's 128525
Had the Drunken Caramel VIP milkshake (for P95) because i found the name quite interesting. At first sip, I couldn't figure out how it became "drunken". Had my food developer partner, Khaimah Fe B, taste it and she said it had Rum. Oh yes, it does! Haha. Doesn't sting so bad. Just right. It's still a milkshake afterall. :) Their milkshakes are still the best I've had.

Oh wait. 8 Cuts' Red Velvet Cake Shake > Starr's. Haha. But, yeah.

Corndogs are yummy too. :) Small, dog-filled corndogs :))

The place was quite full and hot though. Their aircon wasn't working properly..

Red velvet cake shake for my merienda (plus corndogs)! Tasted like red velvet but i must say that the cake shake of the same flavor served in 8cuts is better.
Corndog though, is a winner! 128522

Hay jusko. Would have been perfect for this hot hot SIZZLING HOT weather. Starr's famous shakes are the best! I've always loved a good, creamy, thick and sweet milkshake and Starr's is just that. From a variety of shake ice cream bases to the branded chocolate flavours, Starr's is just something a sweet tooth like me will definitely love. And, at an affordable price too.

Thanks for recommending this, Khaimah Fe B!

Decided to try this milkshake place that also offers great snacks. They have a variety of milkshake offerings, categorized into "Famous" milkshakes and "VIP" milkshakes. They also have "Shake and Bake" which includes flavors such as Toffee Banoffee, Red Velvet, Butterscotch and Strawberry Cheesecake. What I ordered is a new flavor, Cherry with Dark Choco, and it is yum! Retro Malt, made with Horlicks, my childhood favorite, is another must-try. Their snacks are not so bad as well. I ordered Slammmer Jammer Dog and Wedge and Wings.

After getting my son report card yesterday I decided to go to my favorite milkshake bar in town as it was so hot that time. The place was small but cute. Lucky I was the only one that time so I enjoyed my stay there.

Got their best seller milkshake, Cherry with dark Choco for 110 pesos then got the Slamma Jammer Dog for around 70 pesos, total bill is around 200 pesos only .

Glad that they have wifi connection so i don't get bored while waiting for my food

Killer milkshake!!! 128523128523128523 Had cookies and cream with Malt crucnh and cheesecakake, and all three go well together. For every sip, i feel the crunch of the Malt (meaning there's a lot of Maltesers dumped in my shake haha!). The cheesecake, meanwhile, gives the aftertaste, making the drink so well-rounded. Loved it!

My favorite milkshake store! Very creamy and not too sweet. The flavor is just right, imo. Salted caramel is love! 10084 The staff are also friendly. It has a chill vibe that's good for hangouts, although the place is small. But overall, it's still one of the reasons I go to Katips.

I feel that it is a must for me to erase all the memories of the overpriced extremely sour strawberry yogur milkshake i had last Friday.

After equatorial, we are set to conquer the Starrs!

Vanilla Blue Heaven. Priced at php 95 is comfort in a cup. Vanilla and Blue make a good combination. The consistency is on point, smooth...glides like liquid velvet. The taste, perfect - no too sweet. Subtle vanilla flavor, dunno what makes it blue though, frankly, i dont care...i love em blue milkshakes.

During a rainy day, me and my cousin were about to get a planner from moonleaf located at Katipunan, she decided to try one of their best seller teas but I'm not a fan of teas so we searched other places to eat.

She asked if I would like to try starr's famous shakes near the place where we're located. Yet, I'm not quite pleased because I never heard of that milkshake place ever, if it's yum or not but it's her treat so why not?

We got in, the place was neat but not that big, and they uttered that they're just accepting for take out orders, I'm quite disappointed but I really want to try it out so it's kinda okay. We checked their menu and got a lot of choices from the best seller flavors of milkshakes, different toppings & mix-ins to some of their yummy looking snacks.

I tried their cookies n' cream milkshake but it was a bit hard to eat cause it's texture is more of like an ice cream's. I think its their way to make their milkshakes unique. After all it's affordable and tastes good.

I also tried their corn dog which is so affordable because its only 50 pesos yet the servings were generous. It tastes so so good, the outside of it is so soft while you can really taste the juiciness of the sausage. Even though we waited for ten minutes (which is quite long) till service it was worth the wait.

I can't wait to come backing try other stuffs, it's so affordable and yum. I think more people should go and try them out. Located at Katipunan.

Decided to try this after I ate lunch at Chubby Chicken (it's just actually beside Chubby Chicken, so why not bother to stop by and have a cool drink?)

I ordered their bestseller, Rum Raisin. I've neither drank nor tasted rum, so this was very new to my tastebuds.

Guess what? I loved it! The creaminess and milkiness of the milkshake was perfect for that time after eating a salty lunch. I badly want to try their other milkshakes!

Also, it costs only less than a hundred pesos! How amazing is that? 128523128523128523128523

After a toxic day, Starr took me to neverland - where the love for milkshake never gets old! Ahhhhhhhhh

Honestly just tasting the lingering hype of this breakthrough years back. Neither do I live near UST, nor At'neyow hence the late #FIRST

SOOO many options to choose from but my default would always be VANILLA. It's all about the BASE for me, cause the rest is just added syrup/powder/concentrate/chunks for the flavor boost.

I got the yogurt based Vanilla White Chocolate. Ahhhhhhhhhhh it was so goooooood :(((((((( It's the best milkshake/froyo hybrid there is! :'((( for only 125??! Waaaay better than johnny rocket's / army navy's / any other overpriced milkshake that uses BigScoop's or Magnolia's for the base! Huhu #cantBlameMe I grew up near BigScoop / the old Magnolia house

Lalalaaaa I ended up getting another one just 30mins after....
And up to this day ----- I'm still cravinggggg hard.. Not thinking of getting other flavors though (haha staplin' the staple)

T.T someone put up a kiosk/mini stall in Makati please!!!! :'(

Katips-Taft-Manila-QC ----> Makatiiii o.o

PS: not the best photo cause I was too busy with work, but I gotta say their burger was beefy and heavy! Homemade feels ^^, crisscut potatoes were too oily, nonetheless satiating.

PS2: NOT SO SURE about the intense level of dairy-ness(???!) (hahahahaha) but you gotta make sure you have this before going home, not at the start of the day.

Looloove,
B
