To all the peeps on the Northern side of Singapore, Shake Shack has finally reached Bishan! They have opened their ninth outlet in Junction 8, and now you do not need to travel far out to indulge in your favourite burgers anymore.
What’s special about this outlet is that it exhibits a mesmerising indoor-outdoor mural by Singaporean artist Aeropalmics, whose work was inspired by the high energy of the Bishan neighbourhood. Uniquely for Bishan residents!
This outlet consists of two floors, and the interior design reflects the varying heights and intersections of multiple roads around Junction 8 to showcase its function as a key connectivity point. The designs are smartly incorporated into the ceiling and wall, and even the lighting choice.
If you have not tried Shake Shack before and are unsure of which burger to get, their signature ShackBurger ($9.70) will not disappoint you. Relish this classic burger combination consisting of a juicy beef patty, fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and ShackSauce.
Another burger that won my heart upon the first bite is the ‘Shroom Burger ($11.60). Do not skip it over just because you saw the “vegetarian” label, this one will exceed your expectations of a vegetarian burger. Soft potato buns, crisp-fried portobello mushroom filled with oozing cheese, and topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and ShackSauce. No mushy patty in sight.
They are also really well-known for their Crinkle Cut Fries ($4.50, with cheese $5.90). The way the fries are cut, makes them simply crispy and satisfying.
Exclusively at Junction 8
With a passion to continue supporting the local community, Shake Shack has partnered with bean-to-bar chocolatier Ronald Ng of Lemuel Chocolate to create Who 8 My Cookie?, which is only available at Shake Shack Junction 8. This creamy vanilla custard blended with rich caramelised cookies and chunks of Lemuel chocolate will be the perfect dessert to finish off your meal.
In line with Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good®, 5% of sales from the Shack Attack™ concrete will be donated to REACH Community Services Society, which operates out of Bishan. REACH is a local charity that helps and empowers vulnerable individuals, families, youths, and seniors.
