Singapore evolves too fast. I always feel there’s something new every month in this little red dot, from the insignificant to the one that really catch your attention. I remember how enthusiastic the locals and the tourists are when MBS and garden by the bay first opened back in 2010. Well, it is still Singapore highlights up till today. But, recently Singapore just made a new blow in retail complex attached with the world’s best airport, Changi Airport.
Guess most of you have seen how majestic its SGD 1,7 billion centrepiece is. When i saw it on my social media, i was pretty amazed with the big water fountain inside a shopping mall. Really something that i cannot wait to see.
And i finally made it to see the Rain Vortex – the worlds’ tallest indoor waterfall ever! and indeed it is quite stunning piece in there, i have to agree it feels like you’re entering Cloud Forest in Garden by the bay. But probably i will choose Jewel now. Since you can come for free and sit there to watch the waterfall all day. Haha.. Well, Since i love the sound of rain, and the sound of flowing water, if it’s not too crowded, guess i can sit there whole day, cause it just feels so soothing. and oh, they have light show on the waterfall as well on 7.30 pm, 8.30 pm, 9.30 pm, 10.30 pm and 12.30 pm. Which I didn’t catch cause we have to leave earlier that day.
And yeah, talking about Jewel, guess we can’t skip Shake Shack!
Shake shack is one of the reason why i visited Jewel too! I have been briefed that the q can be so bad, it can take you about 2 hrs only for q-ing (if you come during lunch / dinner time)
So, I was trying my luck that day, came at 3.30pm and hoping the q wouldn’t be that bad. And guess what, me and my friends only q-ed about 30 mins. Yeay! odd hours to the rescue! Hehe. I know 30 mins is still quite long for some people. But hey, i guess it’s normal for a famous restaurant. I mean, you would wait about the same period of time for Paradise Dynasty or Din Tai Fung.
FYI : 1 person can buy up to 5 burgers. So if you come in a group, i guess you can take turn to Q.. hehe
After 30 mins of Q, we finally get to order! And oh.. You can purchase the merchandise too if you love Shake Shack that much. I personally think the luggage tag is cute.. haha
So, I ordered :
– Shack Burger : SGD 9.20
– Cheese Fries : SGD 5.90
– Pandan Shake : SGD 7.80 *exclusively in Singapore outlet only.
After ordering, we will get a beeper and we need to find our seat first. Shake shack Singapore is actually quite big, they have second floor too for the dining area. But it feels a bit cramped, since too many people are dying to Shake Shack Singapore.
The food waiting time is about 15-20 minutes, which considered long for a fast-food restaurant (i think). And, this is my verdict :
Like like likee the Shake Burger (cheese burger). Love the meat that they claimed to be freshly ground 100% Angus beef, very juicy and tender for me, love the texture, and the cheese-melt is just nice to compliment the burger. and ohh the bun it self is very soft and buttery for me. Should get the double patty if you love cheese burger.
and if you like cheese melt, you gonna have Major crush for Shake Shack Cheese Fries. Omoooo, the cheese is just so addictive somehow. I think i can just finish this by myself without sharing.. haha.. A MUST ORDER! cannot be missed! >.<
as for the Pandan Shake with Gula Melaka Crumble, you can just SKIP IT.. a waste of calories and waste of money. i rather get another cheese fries or try out their shroom burger (some it it’s better than the cheese burger). It’s just too sweet, very chendol-ish, too thick to drink as well. i like sweet stuff, but i guess this is just not for me..
Overall, it was a good experience for me in Shake Shack Singapore. Kudos to all the staff who serves us well and fast despite the never ending Q. But, if you’re asking me would you rather Q for another 30 minutes for Shake Shack cheese burger OR have a MCSpicy Chicken Burger from McD without Q-ing ? Guess i’ll pick the later one. hehehe..
So, for those of you who have tried Shake Shack. Let me know what you think. And for those of you who can’t wait to try Shake Shack. Do come in odd hours guys.. hehe.. Meanwhile, have a great week everyone! ❤
