By Teng Yong Ping Burger chain Shake Shack has opened its second restaurant in Singapore on Neil Road, after the first one at Jewel Changi Airport. The new outlet introduces a new burger to Shake Shack’s Singapore menu, the Chick’n Shack, as well as two new concretes that are exclusively served at the Neil Road outlet. The Chick’n Shack sandwich contains an antibiotic-free chicken breast that is slow-cooked in a buttermilk marinade before being crisp-fried. The new burger joins staples on Shake Shack’s menu like the Shack Burger and Shack Stack. The fried chicken in the Chick'n Shack is juicy and tender and makes for a satisfying burger. Shake Shack is also known for its concretes – desserts made from frozen custard and toppings. Frozen custard is like ice cream, except that it's thicker and creamier as it's made with egg yolk. Two new concretes that are exclusive to the Neil Road outlet are Eye of the Tiger and Open Sesame. Eye of the Tiger is vanilla custard with lychee, raspberry and shortbread, topped with lime zest. The tangy flavour of the fruits is very refreshing. Open Sesame is vanilla custard with black sesame paste and brownies, topped with black sesame seeds and gold-dusted chocolate. This is one where you either like it or dislike it; the black sesame flavour is quite overpowering which will not be to everyone's liking. The restaurant is located in Tanjong Pagar and the decor was inspired by the building’s former status as the Tiger Balm factory, as well as the local Peranakan heritage. Local artist Sam Lo created a tiger mural inside the restaurant as well as a façade mural on the outside of the building at 89 Neil Road. The outdoor mural was inspired by local cultural motifs, such as auspicious Chinese symbols like the Lucky Bat and Qilin, Malay roof eaves and Peranakan tiling, as well as Art Deco features. Shake Shack brands itself as a “fine casual” dining chain, not merely fast food, as it sources only high quality, premium ingredients from the best farmers and local suppliers.
