As Shake Shack opens up a new Shack at Westgate, it will also debut a limited-time menu that features items topped with its black truffle sauce.
Truffle sauce may sound like an old food trend, but has anyone really gotten over it?
The items include the Black Truffle Burger, Black Truffle Chick’n, and Crinkle Cut Fries.
The limited-time menu will be first made available at the new Shake Shack Westgate from 30 October, and subsequently at all other Shacks from 4 November till 31 December 2021.
The Black Truffle Burger is certainly the star in this special menu. This burger features an all-natural 100% Angus beef cheeseburger, topped with swiss cheese, crispy fried shallots, fresh arugula, and the Shake Shack’s truffle sauce.
Just like its signature cheeseburger, this one has delectable beef that’s juicy. And even though our AVENUE ONE team mate who tried it isn’t a fan of arugula, he was glad that the taste of truffle was strong and delicious enough for him to ignore the distinctive taste of the vegetables.
If you’re a fan of the classic Chick’n, upgrade it to the Black Truffle version, and you won’t be disappointed. Topped with fresh arugula and house-pickled shallots, this burger is easy to love especially because the chicken is so tender.
Beef-lovers may disagree with us, but we honestly think both are equally good.
The limited-time menu is complete with the Black Truffle Fries, which is essentially Shake Shack’s signature Crinkle Cut fries topped with rich black truffle sauce, crispy shallots, and a sprinkle of fresh scallions.
However, if you are already too full from the burgers or have always enjoyed the original fries, we suggest you give this a miss. The sauce felt too cloying after a while so this certainly doesn’t top our list of must-try items.
Besides the limited-time Black Truffle menu, Shake Shack Westgate will also be presenting the exclusive Peelin’ Cherry-fic concrete.
This is a re-interpretation of the classic banana split and features a vanilla and
chocolate custard base, a blend of fresh bananas, caramel sauce, crunchy sugar cone shards, and Lemuel chocolate chunks by home-grown Singaporean bean-to-bar chocolate maker, Ronald Ng. This irresistible dessert is then topped with a cherry, balancing rich chocolatey flavours and fruity aromas.
Like all shacks, Shake Shack worked with Singaporean artists for its new Westgate outlet too. The vibrant mural adorning the shack is created by visual artists Ink and Clog Studio.
This is Shake Shack’s eighth outlet in Singapore and is located at #01-20, Westgate. It will open officially on 30 October at 11am.
