Blogmas Day 18 – Chocolate Coma

chocolat-coma-min

If you live in Port Elizabeth then you are probably already familiar with Grass Roof. They make the most instagramable milkshakes ever which is what my family and I went to try out today. Yes, I had never been there before, don’t judge me!

Before I get into that though let me tell you a bit more about Grass Roof in case you are not familiar with it.  It is a wonderful restaurant in the Seaview area with an actual grass roof. Yes, just as the name suggests!

It has such a lovely atmosphere and you can sit inside or outside. We sat outside under one of the umbrellas and, even though it was quite warm, the breeze helped cool us down so it was actually very nice. There is also a play area for children so they have something to do as well which helps with the boredom on their part.

They have a very nice menu with lots of options. I noticed that they have loads of different pizza options which means that I will obviously have to go back so I can try one of those!

I am going to say that it took forever for our milkshakes to arrive however there were a lot of us at the table and they were very busy! I ordered a Bar One Crazy Shake and I was not disappointed when it arrived. It looked absolutely amazing and I cannot show you just one photo!

So, it looks good but did it taste good? YES! I loved all of the bits on top. There was popcorn, meringue, an ice-cream (yes, there was an ice-cream in my milkshake!), sprinkles, sweets and even a mini flake. It was honestly so gorgeous and it tasted delicious as well!

As I write this I am still recovering from the after effects of my chocolate coma! There was just so much in the milkshake and it was so filling and sweet.

So there is my really mini review of Grass Roof. Have you been here before? Does it seem like somewhere you might want to try out? Let me know in the comments below!

Love,

Kirsty

    WOW this place looks incredible! What a lovely setting! And I can totally understand why you were in a chocolate coma after your visit, that milkshake looks to die for! I’ve been wanting to make “freakshakes” of my own ever since seeing them on Food & Baker’s blog, and this has given me the urge even more! Thanks for sharing!
