9. Steeple’s Deli
Known as the first deli in Singapore, this vintage eatery is situated in Tanglin Shopping Centre and has been around for years. Its thick milkshakes come in flavours such as cookies and cream and salted caramel. There’s yoghurt shakes too, if you want a different take on this perennial sweet treat. We’re more in awe of the entire place, though – an old-school feel that your grandparents will surely appreciate.

10. 25 Degrees Singapore
This bar is well known not just for its burgers, but its other American diner classics too. Yep, we’re talking about its decadent, hand-scooped malt milkshakes! You can go for the classics like strawberry and chocolate, but why should you? We say try out the more fun flavours such as bubblegum, or bobalicious, the eatery’s milkshake take on bubble tea. Psst, there’s also a 1-for-1 milkshake offer every Wednesday. Sweet!
