Shake Shack at Outram
Come this Friday, Shake Shack will open the doors of their second outlet at Outram. Just a stone’s throw away from Outram Park MRT Station, this burger chain from New York is the first of its kind.
Instead of the usual green and black colour scheme, Shake Shack Outram boasts a pretty ambience with hues of pastel pink and mint, as well as a beautiful tiger mural which pays homage to the old Tiger Balm factory it now occupies.
Other than a highly IG-worthy backdrop, new additions to Shake Shack’s second outlet include their exclusive Chick’ n Shack burger ($9.20). Singapore is the first country in the region to offer this 100% natural chicken burger.
Marinated in a bath of buttermilk, the chicken breast patty is tenderised to a tee—resulting in a crunchy, deep-fried breading followed by soft and juicy meat. Pickles, lettuce, and a light mayonnaise-based sauce spike each bite of the burger with added texture and flavour, cutting any tinge of greasiness down a notch.
Those looking to end their meal on a sweet note can also order their new Concrete flavours. No, I’m not making a pun here. For those who aren’t familiar, Concrete is Shake Shack’s version of McDonald’s McFlurry. Mix-ins such as brownies and fruits are churned into a house-made frozen vanilla custard.
Each outlet offers its own special flavour of Concrete and the one at Outram is no exception. We highly recommend trying both the Eye of the Tiger and Open Sesame flavours. Like the burgers, the Concretes also come with a hefty price tag of $7.50 a cup.
The Eye of the Tiger is a sweet and tart blend featuring frozen raspberries and lychee, buttery shortbread chunks, and a clever sprinkle of fresh lime zest that elevates each spoonful of the ice cream. The Open Sesame Concrete tastes intense, just like the sesame paste dessert it’s inspired by. Ingredients such as golden chocolate bits and mini brownies from the Plain Vanilla go surprisingly well with the sesame flavour too.
OG fans of Shake Shack can still look forward to the classic ShackBurger ($9.20), ‘Shroom Burger ($10.80), and more as they are all offered in this new outlet. I guess it’s time for sweet revenge, as the people in the East will have to make their way down to Outram to check out what’s all the hype about!
