I love pecan pie and this was a good rendition. Not as strong as windowsill's, but very sweet. The crust was rather plain but this would have been too much if it were buttery. In fact my friend who doesn't have a sweet tooth alr found it too much and stopped eating. even then he admitted it's good tho haha

Very nostalgic taste profile. Execution good too, very smooth no ice crystals yet thick too

Reuben is much more generous with the meat, you can tasted the brine better. Everything else was zippy, from the sauerkraut to the sauce. Not a fan of sour stuff so this didn't appeal to me as much but it's not bad overall. Their bread was quite good too, really crusty at the edges

Could do with a bit more meat but everything is balanced well. I won't say their sandwiches are very impressive but it's classic and you really do get lost in time here.

Marshmallow and chocolate. I've no idea why but somehow this is really good, the chocolate isn't even premium or anything.

If you need any convincing, the lady boss literally asked me: just one piece? when I ordered lol. When i asked how many people usually got, she told me some even got 10 pcs at once to bring home and eat.

Mediocre. Worse than MOS(not that MOS's is bad at all, just that it's priced so affordably)

PSA got some set discount -7nett

Like ramly but a proper burger. Sinful and really not my proudest enjoyment, but really pretty addictive. Imagine a decent burger but coated w egg and sloppily sauced, in a most debaucherously delicious way

PS this is from hillview grab kitchen branch

Patty was satisfying and the portion was really generous, esp for the price(goes for 16++ normally) I particularly liked the bursts of sweetness and sourness from the pickles to lighten the otherwise rather heavy potato bun

Corn bread itself was ok but the soft smoked butter and honey were quite good

Jewel is empty now so this is a good time to visit. 5mins queue is pretty shiok

Bacon was crisp but abit dry, shack sauce was basically mayo but Tangier and got some mustard I think. The chopped cherry pepper was fine, luckily there's minimal heat and I heard some people had theirs cold. I really don't like the brioche bun tho, the meat and the sauce need to be extra gao to justify a brioche, else the butteriness and the density of the bun is unchecked. Overall a passable burger, slightly overpriced.

Rant:
My image of shake shack has always been a decent fast food chain. Finally I had a chance to try at the store in singapore and it didn't change my opinion. If you've never paid for a gourmet burger(>15) before, ofc this is gonna be the best burger you've had. And a lot of people proclaiming that will feed into the hype. So yes it's overhyped, if you really love burgers go get a proper one. Then again can't really blame any place for the hype they generate, they're not responsible for it(the crowd is)

Update: oh the soggy layer was cheese, yeah nah doesn't keep well at all have it quickly after u takeaway

I believe in comparing a product with its peers in the same category but this place really blurs the line between a fast food chain and an artisanal burger restaurant. The patty is obviously significantly better than those pedestrian chains but they've got a price to match as well. On the other hand it was well done so it doesn't compare to the juiciness of a medium or medium rare burger.

The Portobello was ok but it was many small pieces encased in the batter, idk why I expected one huge piece. There's also a thick soggy layer, between the mushroom and the patty, i didn't realise the batter could absorb so much water. If it's true that their burgers are as good taken away, then this isn't their best work. My brother mentioned that the one he had last time at the shop itself was a lot better too

Would travel for food
