"VINCENT: Did you just order a five-dollar shake?"
"MIA: Sure did."
"VINCENT: A shake? Milk and ice cream?"
"VINCENT: It costs five dollars?"
"VINCENT: You don’t put bourbon in it or anything?"
This famous scene from Pulp Fiction raised the question for many people: what would a USD 5 milkshake taste like? Beijingers can find out at any Fatburger outlet in our fine city.
Fatburger’s milkshakes cost USD 6.12, or more relevantly for us, CNY 38. They’re made with real milk and ice cream, just like Mia ordered, and come topped with whipped cream. On a hot summer day, this might just be the coolest treat in Beijing. It’s thick, it’s rich, and it probably will make finishing Fatburger’s Triple King quite difficult.
The milkshakes are available in three flavors – vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry – at any of Fatburger’s three locations in Beijing, at the Grand Summit (near the Kempinski Hotel), in the basement of China World Tower 3, and now in Shunyi.
