How many Shake Shack(s) do we need in Singapore?
Shake Shack Singapore will be opening its seventh fine-casual restaurant at the iconic Gardens by the Bay, in the heart of Marina Bay.
For this outlet, the fast-casual restaurant has partnered with Singaporean artist soph O for a spirited mural construction which was inspired by the lush flora and fauna of the national garden.
New to Shake Shack?
It 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.
It offerings include ShackBurger ($9.20 for single, $12.70 for double), SmokeShack ($10.90, $14.40), ‘Shroom Burger ($10.80), Shack Stack ($14.30), Hamburger ($7.50), and the newly introduced Chick’n Shack ($9.20).
If you have never had a Shake Shack before, then you can probably try getting either the SmokeShake (get the double) 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.
Not sure if it is psychological, but law of diminishing marginal returns at work, I remember having a slightly better burger at Jewel.
I also tried the Chick’n Shack ($9.20) which contained crispy chicken breast, lettuce, pickles, and buttermilk herb mayo.
Probably a safe choice for customers who are not inclined to take beef, but nothing very exciting about yet-another chicken burger.
Go for the juicier and more distinctive beef who is really their signature.
There was a recent Jalapeño Ranch ShackBurger ($11.90 for single, $15.40 for double) launched with the opening of Great World outlet. (Do their burgers just get more expensive?)
The beef ShackBurger is spread with a ranch sauce made with parmesan, black pepper and fresh sliced jalapeños, though I didn’t feel that it added much of a difference considering its whole.
Perhaps the proportion of the jalapeños or the piquant-level could be upped.
Comparatively, the sauce made more of a difference to the Jalapeño Ranch Fries ($6.50), as there was more going on from the tangy sauce, bacon bits to spring onions.
With the hot weather outside, you probably need one of the Hand-Shaken Lemonade ($5.30) – available in lychee, blueberry or mango flavours; or the Sparking Lemonade ($5.30) with passion fruit and raspberry to cool yourself down.
Warning though, the drinks and shakes are generally VERY sweet.
