Shake Shack Singapore launches new fried shallots burger at Suntec City
The limited edition ShackMeister menu will be available exclusively at its fourth Singapore outlet on Sep 30. It'll debut at the other three Shacks on Oct 5.
Hungry? How does a 100 per cent all-natural Angus beef cheeseburger slathered in tangy signature ShackSauce and topped with beer-battered shallots fried to a golden crisp sound?
Shake Shack’s award-winning onion rings-inspired ShackMeister burger is launching in Singapore on Sep 30, ready to tempt those of you inclined to sprinkle fried shallots on everything from rice and instant noodles to bak chor mee and soup.
It’s all to mark the opening of the fast-casual restaurant chain's fourth Singapore outlet, at Suntec City, following those at Jewel Changi Airport, Neil Road and Liat Towers in Orchard Road.
The entire ShackMeister menu, which comprises the burger, flat-top dog and crinkle cut fries, will be available exclusively at this new location, before it finds its way on the menu at the other outlets on Oct 5.
The limited edition ShackMeister menu will only be in Singapore until Nov 16.
This fan favourite creation won the “Judge’s Choice for Best Burger” prize back in 2014 at Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash, and was later available for a limited time at Shake Shack's US outlets.
For the uninitiated, the shallots are first marinated in custom-brewed ShackMeister ale and then tossed in the same coating as the Chick’n Shack burger with flour, cayenne and paprika then fried to a crisp.
Essentially the original ShackBurger enhanced with extra crunch and punch, the addition of a heaping pile of crispy shallots to create the ShackMeister burger was such a hit that the idea was extended to Shake Shack’s flat-top dogs and crinkle cut fries, complete with the signature cheese sauce.
WHAT ELSE TO ORDER AT THE SUNTEC CITY OUTLET
Exclusive to this fourth outlet is Matcha Made In Heaven, a strawberry-matcha concrete. It’s the combination of a creamy vanilla frozen custard blended with a tart strawberry yuzu jam and buttery shortbread, and topped with matcha powder.
And in keeping with Shake Shack’s Stand For Something Good mission, five per cent of sales from any Shack Attack concrete will continue to go to a charity partner. In this case, it's HealthServe Limited, a non-profit organisation supporting migrant workers in Singapore.
Another Suntec City highlight are the giant outdoor and indoor murals by Ripple Root, the artist moniker of Singaporeans Liquan Liew and Estella Ng, who are known for their distinctive Southeast Asian ornamentation and themes of nature and wildlife in their works.
Shake Shack Suntec City officially opens on Sep 30. It’s located at 3 Temasek Boulevard #01-357 Suntec City Mall, and operates 11am to 9.30pm daily.
