Craving for crispy fries, fried chicken wings, and Korean corndog?
When you walk past this café splashed in colours of yellow and pink in the heart of town at 111 Somerset, you may be surprised to find a Shake Shake In A Tub Café.
Yup, the home-grown brand is better known for its kiosks located at various places and malls such as AMK Hub, Bukit Panjang Plaza and Suntec City, but this is its very first dine-in café.
Somewhere to sit-and-chill over ‘fries in Ferris Wheel’ and drinks, perhaps?
The Halal-certified brand is popular for its Shake Shake Chicken, Fries, and Popcorn Chicken with fun, customisable flavours that customers can pick and choose.
Now there are more finger-food options.
With a couple of instagrammable spots, comfortable sit-down area, and natural daylight at the back of the café, this can be a place to nibble and chat with friends over chicken, fries and drink.
Here are some of the highlights from Shake Shake In A Tub’s Flagship Café at 111 Somerset:
Fries-Go-Round Set ($15.90)
This is the most ‘worth-it’ set if you like to try a variety of various flavours, plus it is good #4thegram (and TikTok).
How it works is you can choose five types of addictive delights, including shoestring fries, curly fries, criss-cut fries, pom poms (tater tots) and onion rings.
There are eight flavours to choose from, including signatures like Truffle, Cheese, Sour Cream & Onion, Curry, Barbeque, to seasonal specials such as Butter Corn, Mala and Spicy BBQ.
For the recommended seasoning flavours, you can opt for the Mala for something more special. The Mala would provide just that light tingling and addictive sensation on your tongue.
Or try the smoky and tangy Barbecue, and the sweet-savoury and earthy Curry flavour.
Say Cheese! Fondue Set ($21.90)
A combination of bite-sized batter-coated, crispy fried popcorn chicken, along with shoestring fries to be dipped into fondue.
If you find some citrusy notes in the cheese fondue, that it is because it is squeezed in with some lemon juice – its brightness helps balance that rich-dairy.
Triple Truffle Fried Chicken Set ($19.90)
The Triple Truffle Fried Chicken Set includes a trio of Shake Shake Chicken, Fries and Onion Rings tossed in Shake Shake’s popular truffle flavour, and some buttered sweet corn at the side.
The fries and rings are tossed in a tub and shaken with the special truffle mix till they are coated with that distinctive truffle-umami flavour.
These humble spuds paired with the strong and aromatic powder is a winning combination which ends up to be pretty addictive.
The Shake Shake Chicken comprises of crispy wingettes and drumettes freshly deep-fried, then brushed over with some soy-garlic sauce with mellow garlic undertones, then also powdered with the aromatic truffle mix.
One bite, and you get a bit of sweetness, savouriness and truffle flavour.
“DAEBAK” Korean Fried Chicken Set ($21.90)
K-food lovers can go for the “DAEBAK” Korean Fried Chicken Set that comes complete with Korean food inspired Spicy Chicken, Seaweed Fries, a pair of Corn Dogs and some kimchi – good for sharing.
Between the two, I found that the sauce worked better for the wings for this set.
The crackling crisp chicken would be coated with a layer of savoury-sweet sticky sauce that is also slightly spicy – and you may just find yourself licking your fingers soon after.
The Cheesy Corn Dog is a new addition, freshly prepared in their central kitchen with CP’s smoked chicken wiener. It is drizzled with mustard and chilli sauce.
For drinks, you can wash the food down with the refreshing and ‘nostalgic’ (for some) Root Beer Float ($3.80).
Also available are Dilmah Tea’s new range of bottled Iced Teas ($3.50 each) in invigorating flavours such as White Peach Iced Black Tea, Rose and French Vanilla Iced Tea and Arabian Jasmine Iced Tea.
I liked the Rose & French Vanilla for its light floral fragrance, and White Peach made with Dilmah’s unblended black tea which was cooling and not too sweet.
