Shake Shack

Post by abbby » Sun, 13 Oct 2019 9:55 pm

Are there other outlets other than the one at Jewel?

Yes, but not in Singapore (yet). Several in Hong Kong for example.

I just passed by the one at Liat Tower today and I’ll be taking my wife and kids there for lunch this Monday. It’s where the old Burger King used to be, lots of memories there!

The burger scene here sure has flourished in recent years, Carl’s Junior, Fat Burger, Five Guys and now Shake Shack. What will be next? Red Robin?

When is the Vivo location opening? I've been to Jewel, Neil road and Orchard.

In my opinion yes and so is Five Guys, but the the prices make it barely worth it.

Don’t expect it to blow your socks off... but they are a cut above. The biggest weakness is their crinkle cut fries, so-so. I hadn’t heard of them until they opened in Jewel, but the crowds there turned me off. Around the same time last year I was back home in Michigan and stumbled across a Shake Shack at a food court there and gave it a go, it was a decent feed. As the name suggests, the shakes are the thing that sets them apart. Fat Burger shakes are quite comparable though.

Mal - thanks mate. We went down to the Neil Road outlet (which is a cool location). Your review is spot on - don't bother with the fries (or perhaps buy one set for the family). The burgers are good and my American wife was pleased. I intend to stop by (we took out) and try their beers next time as well.

Fat Burger (from California) is also worth a mention, not so much for the burgers but for the wings (and they do have boneless, which I prefer). They don’t call them Buffalo wings, but when you order they will translate to their equivalent flavor... add a generous dollop of ranch dressing, and wow, just wow. The shakes are as good as Shake Shack, the fries are better... but I would rank their burgers a notch below shake shack and five guys.

I want to try Five Guys next. I think I tried Fat Burger awhile back and was impressed but they closed the outlet nearest me.

25 Degrees Burger and Liquor on middle road is good btw.

Can't believe I didn't know there's a Fatburger outlet in singers... - and there's actually 4!!

Lunch's settled then.

Shake Shack's pretty decent, but nothing more.

Some of the local upscale restaurants serve the best burgers here. (Basque, Masa,...)

Edited - Had to Google it: Looks like we even had a White Castle here in the late 80s!

As local burgers go, Omakase is the only one I’ve found to be worthy of note... I’d actually put them very close if not on par with five guys and shake shack, which is quite surprising.

I’ve not heard of or tried 25°though.

25 degrees is as much about the atmosphere - but the food is good. I agree Omakse is good.
