Shake Shack Philippines will be open their first branch on May 10, 2019 at the G/F of Central Square in BGC. It’s a beautiful store that will 120 indoor seats as well as al fresco seating in the future, you can also take out and sit by the central indoor fountain. Most of the ingredients will be imported to maintain their quality foremost of all the beef patties and the buns.
First thing you will notice is the prices, they purposely made it lower than almost all countries to be able to let more people try. I’ve tried Shake Shack in Japan and Korea and was not really impressed, I’ve heard similar comments who have tried from those countries also.
Shack-cago Dog (P250). Shake Shack’s version of a Chicago dog. All beef hotdog with relish, onion, cucumber, pickle, tomato, sport pepper, celery salt and mustard. I actually loved this more than the burgers when I tried it before. I hoped they add a pork hotdog like they do in Japan so Irene can enjoy this too. The bun is pillowy soft and the dog has a nice crisp bite.
Cheese Fries (P180). We’ve always ordered these and they are even better than what we had before. Each fry is crisp but with no hint of oil and the cheese sauce is thick and cheesy.
Shack Burger (P250/ single, P410/double). Cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato and Shack sauce. First bite and I was stunned how good it was, from the super soft potato bun to the nice crust of the patty and juicy meat. This was how I imagined a Shake Shack burger would taste. The patties are a good size quarter pound and with the price is very close or competitive with local brands. I ate at Sweet Ecstasy and their cheeseburger was priced at P250 also.
Shroom Burger (P445). Shake Shack’s vegetarian option using a fried portobello mushroom. The portobello hides an amazing surprise inside of melted cheddar and meunster cheeses that will ooze out so be careful eating this so as not to burn your tongue.
Ube Shake (P190). Their shakes and concretes all use frozen vanilla custard made in house daily so it’s always fresh. Vanilla custard blended with ube, tastes like melted creamy ube ice cream. The serving size is pretty hefty so take that into consideration when ordering to pair with your burgers and fries.
Concretes (P250/single, P350/double). They have 3, all using local components. Shack Attack, chocolate custard with Bucky’s brownie, Auro chocolate chunks, fudge sauce and chocolate sprinkles. Calamansie Pie Oh My, vanilla custard with a slice of Wildflour calamansi pie. Uuube-by Baby, vanilla custard with ube, cooconut marshmallow, ube cookie, toasted coconut, pinipig and leche flan.
They’ve got a mix of Manila and Shack Shack signature merchandise for sale.
Would I line up for 2 hours to have it, probably not but a 15-20 min one and we’re in business.How about you?
