Come put a cutting: Chennai's newest line of milkshakes in quart bottles
Calling tweens and teetotallers - now you can clink a quarter bottle, and welcome your parents to a swig as well. Chennai's newest line of milkshakes by The Table arrives in 'quarter bottles' that will be delivered to your doorstep. At Rs 145 a pop (you get to keep the bottle of course) - one has to admit - it's a pretty sweet deal. And that's not counting the Chocolate Mud or Salted Caramel Brownie in your shake.
The line of milkshakes appropriately named, The Table Cutting, which launched today, is the brainchild of 28-year-old Shriram Rajendran to set himself apart from competitors like Keventers, Frozen Bottle and The Thick Shake Factory. "I wanted to introduce a milkshake line by doing something unique," says the chef who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in London. And so far he says, "The concept and packaging have been a big hit with customers."
Expect a substantial range of 15 flavours - like Cherry Chocolate, Raspberry Truffle, Wild Berry, Hazelnut Tiramisu and an Oreo Chocolate Melt. "Most of these are actually our dessert jars now in milkshake form," elaborates Shriram who started with dessert jars exclusively when the brand opened shop in 2015. "But we have added some new flavours like Pop Corn and Apple Pie," he adds
After a taste, we have to say that our favourites are the Chocolate Mud and Salted Caramel, while the Tiramisu was perhaps a tad too sweet.
If you want a hit of organic whey protein in your shake, that is an option for five of the flavours on the menu (Vanilla Sky, Chocolate Mud, Red Velvet, Cold Coffee and Red Berry) for an additional cost of Rs 50.
As for conservative parents and sceptics concerned that their teenagers might be chugging from recycled alcohol bottles - Shriram clarifies, "Quarter bottles are 180 ml, but we serve our shakes in 200 ml bottles - so you can be assured that we manufacture them!"
At The Table Rooms in Anna Nagar and Maduravoyal, and available across Chennai online.
