First Shake Shack branch in PH opens today and it offers exclusive menu
Filipinos are in for a sweet treat when Shake Shack opens today its first over store in the Philippines, which is located at Central Square in Taguig City.
This, as the country’s first ever Shake Shack will serve up one-of-a kind menu items for the Manila community, only found in the Philippines.
“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,” said Shake Shack culinary director Mark Rosati.
“From halo halo, lechon, adobo and garlic rice to calamansi and ube in every imaginable form, Manila is serious about its love for great food and ingredients! We’re thrilled to introduce our Manila-exclusive menu that features just a few of the flavors and ingredients we fell in love with, and are humbled to become part of this vibrant community,” he added.
The unique menu includes the Ube Shake, featuring vanilla frozen custard ice cream blended with ube and hand-spun to order. It is a Shack take on the classic flavor found all over the Philippines.
For a local twist on a Shack classic lemonade, Shake Shack Manila also offers CalamansiLimeade, which is the perfect combination of sweet and tart with the beloved calamansi as the star of the show.
The menu will also feature three unique concretes (frozen custard icecream made in-Shack every day, then blended with mix-ins featuring iconic Filipino flavors or local bakers and artisans). Concretes include:
• Uuuube-by baby – Vanilla custard mixed with ube, coconut marshmallow, ube cookie, toasted coconut and crispy pinipig. Topped with leche flan. Oooooh baby baby!
• Shack Attack – Chocolate custard mixed with Bucky’s original brownie, Auro chocolate chunks, Shack fudge sauce, and chocolate sprinkles. A Manila spin on a Shack classic, this concrete proudly features chocolate brownies from Bucky’s, and 55% cacao chocolate from local bean-to-bar Auro chocolate.
• Calamansi Pie Oh My – Vanilla custard mixed with calamansi pie from the local favorite Wildflour Bakery.
