A 100 per cent all-natural Angus beef patty already sounds like heaven, but pair it up with something like beer-battered shallots and all of a sudden everyone’s going crazy.
Or at least, that’s what I surmise would happen after everyone hears about this.
According to CNA Lifestyle, Shake Shack is bringing its award-winning onion rings-inspired ShackMeister burger to town this 30 September. And honestly speaking…
Nothing else could possibly look better on a plate right now.
Shake Shack Bringing Popular Beer-Battered Fried Shallots Angus Beef Burger To S’pore
The creation, which features a 100 per cent all-natural Angus beef cheeseburger that’s slathered in tangy signature ShackSauce and topped with crispy, golden beer-battered shallots, clinched the “Judge’s Choice for Best Burger” prize back in 2014 at Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash.
It was later made available for a limited period of time at Shake Shack’s US outlets.
Apparently, the shallots are first marinated in custom-brewed ShackMeister ale, before being tossed with flour, cayenne and paprika.
They are then fried to a crisp to add that extra crunch and punch to the original ShackBurger.
Other Choice Picks
As it turns out, it’s not just the Shack Burger that received the good ol’ Shallot treatment;
Shake Shack’s flat-top dogs and crinkle-cut fries, too, have been dealt a healthy dose of it.

Shake Shack will be opening its fourth outlet @sunteccity on 30 Sept with the ShackMeister™ menu exclusively available here before it debuts at other outlets on 5 Oct. 😍 . There’s the ShackMeister™ Burger (from S$10.90), ShackMeister™ Dog (S$6.50) and the ShackMeister™ Cheese Fries (S$5.90). All topped with crispy shallots and loads of cheese 🧀 The ShackMeister™ was first created in 2015 for a burger competition in the USA, securing the Judge’s Choice for Best Burger, and eventually appearing on the Shake Shack menu for a limited time that same year. Lending a twist to the classic ShackBurger®, the ShackMeister™ has a heaping pile of crispy fried shallots on top of 100% Angus beef, bringing a garlicky flavor and extra crunch. The shallots are marinated in custom-brewed ShackMeister™ ale, tossed in the same coating as the Chick’n Shack with flour, cayenne and paprika then crisp fried until golden.
They will be available as a trio at Shake Shack’s newest outlet from 30 September onwards; as for the rest of the outlets, the entire ShackMeister menu will also find its way onto the menu on 5 October.
The ShackMeister burger is priced at $10.90 for a single patty. Considering that it was named the best burger of 2014, the fact that its price is so similar (or cheaper) to a McDonald’s premium burger just makes it more impressive, no?
The ShackMeister Dog will set you back by $6.50 and last but not least, the ShackMeister Cheese Fries cost $5.90.
The limited-edition items will only be in Singapore until 16 November 2020.
Meanwhile, Shake Shack will be introducing a store-exclusive item to its fourth outlet: Matcha Made In Heaven.
Essentially a strawberry-matcha concrete, the dessert combines creamy vanilla custard blended with a tart strawberry yuzu jam and buttery shortbread and is topped off with matcha powder.
The dessert is priced at $7.50 per single serving.
The rest of the menu will play host to a series of familiar faves, including the Singapore Exclusive Pandan Shake ($7.80) and the Pie-Oh-My ($7.50 for a single).
And So… What’re You Waiting For?
Time waits for no one.
And Shake Shack’s latest offerings are certainly not waiting for you.
So note down the intricate details:
Shake Shack @ Suntec City
Opening date: 30 September 2020
Address: 3 Temasek Boulevard #01-357, Suntec City Mall, Singapore 038983
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 9:30pm
And if you need any added incentive to go, just know that five per cent of sales from any Shark Attack concrete will be heading to a charity partner. In this scenario, it’s HealthServe Limited, a non-profit organisation that helps migrant workers in Singapore.
Keen to do your part for all the pandemic-affected migrant workers? Well, there’s no better (or more sumptuous way) to get your karma points before the end of 2020.
Don’t say bojio ah. 🙂
