We’ve talked about Dream Mansion a couple of times, which is an anime cafe that serves legit Japanese-inspired meal. Omurice and curry don are just a few to name. Their highlight is their drinks which took inspiration from manga and anime. They recently came out with one-of-a-kind milkshake, probably one of the craziest milkshakes in Penang. It’s the unicorn giant milkshake that could at least feed 4. No we’re serious, just head over to Dream Mansion to find out yourself.
Address: 80&82, Lebuh Tye Sin, George Town, Malaysia.

10. China House
Unlike the above milkshakes that we’ve talked about, China House milkshake is something else. No fancy whipped cream or toppings, not Instagrammable, just pure good milkshake. The texture comes smoother and lighter as compared to others. They do have “fat” flavors like peanut butter milkshake. We suggest you not to pair both cakes and milkshakes together. Why? It’s going to be super filling and things will turn out unpleasant.
