Shake Shack’s second outlet in Singapore has opened at 89 Neil Road, right across the rather ‘happening’ Keong Saik Street which is already lined with hip restaurants and cafes.
Shake Shack is a fast-casual restaurant known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, flat-top beef hotdogs, spun-fresh frozen custard, and crinkle cut fries.
This outlet is located on the first floor of a historical building, which used to contain Eng Aun Tong factory where Tiger Balm was produced.
Therefore, you would also find a striking tiger mural to pay tribute to the space’s former occupants.
The menu over at Neil Road appears to be just slightly more extensive, offering items not previously available at Jewel.
Other than the ShackBurger ($9.20 for single, $12.70 for double), SmokeShack ($10.90, $14.40), ‘Shroom Burger ($10.80), Shack Stack ($14.30), and Hamburger ($7.50), also included in Neil Road’s menu is the Chick’n Shack ($9.20).

It is slightly disappointing that the main new item of the Fried Chicken Burger is already commonly available elsewhere, and there is nothing quite new or novel to it.

The Chick’n Shack burger contains crispy chicken breast, lettuce, pickles, and buttermilk herb mayo.
It wasn’t particularly memorable as it was a usual chicken burger (tad on the salty side as well) and felt more worthwhile to spend the calories on the beef burgers which had a better differentiating factor.
For recommendations, I would usually get either the SmokeShake or the Shack Stack which contains a combination of crispy-fried portobello mushroom, the signature juicy Angus beef patty, and slice of cheese.
Having crispy mushroom and moist patty, while messy to eat, gives the overall bite a more layered contrast.
For the Concretes ($7.50 for single, $9.50 for double) which are frozen custard blended with mix-ins, the new stuff to get are are the Eye of the Tiger and Open Sesame.
The former contains vanilla custard blended with lychee, raspberry and shortbread and topped with lime zest.
As for the Open Sesame, the Concretes is included with black sesame paste and Plain Vanilla (yeah, that bakery) brownie topped with black sesame seeds and gold-dusted chocolate.
The Singapore-exclusive shake is still that Pandan Shake featuring vanilla frozen custard ice cream blended with pandan, coconut, and topped with gula melaka crumble.
Warning: This is on the very sweeeeeet side, but drink if you haven’t had it before and curious to sample what the fuss is all about.
