Shake Shack Orchard Road review: Exclusive new menu items, digital ordering kiosks, and more
Shake things up
Third time's the charm, as they say, but Shake Shack's continued success in Singapore owes itself to its juicy American-style burgers. Taking over the space that used to be Overeasy, Shake Shack's third outlet at Orchard Road is set to open its doors to the public on 5th August at 6pm.
What's different about this outlet is the waltz in. Diners are first greeted by the drink kiosk, which offers a wide array of drinks — including outlet-specific specials like the hand-shaken lychee lemonade, as well as sparkling lemonade in flavours like passionfruit and raspberry. Common Man Coffee has also jumped onboard to give Shack lovers the cold brews for that arvo pick-me-up. The new outlet will also feature the first ever digital kiosks for ordering, for better efficiency and convenience.
The design for the latest outlet in the Shake Shack chain was inspired by our very own Botanic Gardens, a certified UNESCO World Heritage Site. Singaporean artist Danielle Tay created bright, eye-catching murals and paintings featuring landmarks from Singapore, such as the Marina Bay Sands. These murals are proudly displayed in their first ever open-air patio, where diners can opt for alfresco dining as they enjoy their burgers.
While everyone loves Shake Shack's original menu, exclusive items from this outlet's menu are worth the foreseeable queues. Dessert lovers will be in for a treat, as the menu features two concretes exclusive to the new Shack. Orchard Road partnered with Tarte by Cheryl Koh, who was awarded Asia's Best Pastry Chef in 2016, for the Pie-Oh-My, which features vanilla custard blended with Tarte's Treacle Pecan Pie. The Orchard Traffic Jam features vanilla custard blended with blueberry lavender jam, tangy lemon curd and crunchy shortbread, topped with fresh blueberries. Extending the franchise's Stand for Something Good mission, five percent of sales from the fan-favorite Shack Attack concrete go to Club Rainbow, a non-profit providing compassionate services to chronically ill children and their families.
