GWENFOOD | SHAKE SHACK #THEALSHAYAFOODTOUR IN DUBAI
Shake Shack is a hip, counter-serve chain for gourmet takes on fast-food classics like burgers & frozen custard.
First things first…
HOW WRONG CAN YOU GO WITH BURGERS????
That’s what alot of people think. But HECK NO! As a burger person, I can be quite picky of what a good burger is. And i think many of the burger lovers out there agrees with me too. But then again, as I always say, everything I write about is based on my own opinion and I believe everyone has their own personal preference.
Service overall is very quick and orders were made well also. Love that they display the specialties. It looks like a fast food kind similar to Mcdonalds or My Burger Lab, where you line up and make your order at the counter, pick up your meal and then go to your table. Well, why waste labor serving you when they can be at the kitchen giving your quality good burgers right???
There’s a huge “PICKUP HERE” sign that nobody can miss. LOL – Unless you are blind.
Shake Shack is famous for their burgers even though their intro states that it was originally hot dogs. We ordered a variety of burgers from the single patty to double patty and one thing I could say is that the price was high for the portion that was being served. (Then again, it’s Dubai. Everything is pricey for Malaysians. )
Shakemeister – Cheeseburger with marinated shallots
I can never decide if I want to go for the portobello mushrooms or the shallots burger. But both tasted amazing, even though it looks sloppy, but it isn’t. #thumbsup
In terms of taste, it was amazing and I can see myself coming back often for more servings and bringing friends over as well.
Burgers in Malaysia have been growing rapidly for the past 2 years and it is important to not have the burger too oily or too sloppy as that would drive the consumers away.
My favourite of all the burgers is the Shack Stack – which is the Cheeseburger and Shroom Burger added together. 2 in 1!! Plus point!
Dessert was interesting as it was a Red Velvet Concrete and I believe it’s something you won’t get in Malaysia as well. The chocolate one was too much for my taste buds but the Red velvet was amazing.
Overall, Shake Shack is a place that I would go often as a meal with friends or family as I love burgers.
