Pistachio Milkshake at Bareburger

It's definitely worth a try if you're looking for something different.

Looking for a flavor you may not have tried yet? How about something new at a restaurant you haven’t been to before — at least not in Forest Hills.

Earlier this week we gave you a first look at

While we were there, we took the time to check out something they’re famous for aside from their burgers — their milkshakes.

In this case, we took a flier on a pistachio milkshake.

We’d never tried one before, and when it arrived, it looked just like plain vanilla.

But the taste was something different.

It was crisp and minty. Frankly, it tasted a little like the kind of treat you’d get at Christmastime.

Made with organic milk and fresh ingredients, it was filling, and the kind of thing you can’t, or maybe shouldn’t, get every day — unless you’re really trying to pack on the pounds.

But as far as we’re concerned, the pistachio milkshake at Bareburger is highly recommended.

Do Not Eat Here unless you are willing to always eat "mystery food." They are not even trying at Forest Hills Bareburger. Their food and carelessness made me physically sick, and I'm still trying to find out from them if it's because they lied to me or didn't know better. Imagine if you were a diabetic and said no sugar in the iced tea, and then they put some sugar in there anyway but continued to tell you that they didn't. Well, that's the equivalent of what they did to me The staff repeatedly assured me on 4 separate occasions that their veggie burger was gluten free -- each time, I asked my server, and then asked them to confirm that with the restaurant's allergy specialist (every restaurant in NY State is required to have one). Each time, they claimed that they did double-check, but now they tell me that the veggie burger is not gluten free and the main office in Astoria says it never was! Although that information is now on their menu, it's too late: I have celiac disease, and every time I eat gluten, that means a year of nerve damage and another before the damage begins to repair itself, if ever...in addition to other physical damage and painful symptoms. Having a new menu that accurately labels the burger is no excuse for the eye-rolling disregard I received from the teenagers who work there and served me food that harms my health. What else could they be misinformed about? What kind of meat is that, really, and do they even know what they're serving you?
