If you were alive (and of a certain age) during the early 2000s, here’s a bit of lyrical prose sure to strike a tender chord:
“My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,
And they’re like
It’s better than yours,
Damn right it’s better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge”
Yes, that’s Kelis’ iconic song “Milkshake.” And, yes, milkshakes do make people come running. What you may not know is that Kelis legitimately loves food. In 2008, she went to culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu and, in 2015, released her first cookbook, My Life on a Plate.
Now, the artist will open a pop-up burger restaurant in collaboration with Le Bun—a French-American burger venue—at London’s Leicester House this summer. And while there will be burgers (obviously) and South American arepas, we feel as if she’s missing out on a serious menu opportunity. And by opportunity we mean milkshakes.
So, Kelis, here are the milkshakes we think you should be serving at your burger pop-up. They’d bring us to the yard.
