TL;DR – OMG.
Iconic New York burger joint Shake Shack could be coming soon to Singapore.
According to 8 Days magazine, they heard from an F&B industry insider that the American burger brand will be opening at Jewel Changi Airport.
8 Days also said that it is rumoured that the burger chain has awarded licensing rights to Korean F&B conglomerate SPC Group to set up Shake Shack in Singapore. SPC is behind South Korean bakery chain Paris Baguette who has also partnered Shake Shack in Korea.
By the way, Paris Baguette bakes the chain’s burger buns, which Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer says “are as good as the ones in New York”.
If the burger chain really does make it to Singapore, then not only must you eat their almighty Shack Stack,
You MUST MUST MUST also give their concretes (or frozen custards) a go. These sundaes are so dense, rich and creamy, it will blow your mind.
My personal favourite is the Shack Attack® which features chocolate custard, fudge sauce, chocolate truffle cookie dough and Mast Brothers Shake Shack dark chocolate chunks, topped with chocolate sprinkles.
