Shake Shack is finally in the Philippines.
For those wondering why all the hype: This international burger chain had a humble start as just a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan back in 2001. It has since gained a cult following, evolving into a permanent kiosk in 2004, expanding its initial burgers, hotdogs and fries offerings and opening stores across the world.
And now it’s here. Shake Shack is opening in Manila on May 10, in BGC’s Central Square, with the first 100 guests getting a cool Shack swag.
“As we spent time exploring the unique and eclectic landscape that is Filipino cuisine, we were inspired by the flavors and artisans we met along the way and by the food that they’re passionate about,” shared Shake Shack’s Culinary Director, Mark Rosati. As with the branches all over the globe, the brand continues to feature exclusive menu items that bring local flavors to the spotlight.
Below, we name the seven must-tries.
For first-time visitors, it’s imperative that you should begin with the classic ShackBurger. All the necessities are there—soft buns, beef patty, tomato, lettuce, and the secret ShackSauce. It sounds like a simple sandwich, but it uses top-of-the-line ingredients (hello 100% natural Angus beef patty!) that make all the difference. (P250/single; P410/double)
