Giving Mid-Autumn Festival a flavourful twist this year, Shake Shack gets creative with two mooncake-inspired treats for sweet tooths to enjoy this holiday. Inspired by traditional mooncakes, the Lava Custard Shake ($48) sees a combination of whipped cream, pomelo and grapefruit – two fruits which symbolise 'reunion' in Chinese culture – and lava custard blended with vanilla ice cream, topped with crispy mooncake bits for that all-important crunch.

Meanwhile, ice cream lovers will enjoy the Lava Custard Concrete ($45 for single; $65 for double), a vanilla ice cream mixed with thick lava custard, grapefruits and pomelo, as well as mooncake crunches. The whole thing is then topped off with a generous serving of lava custard mooncake wedges. Both festive treats are available in all Shake Shack locations across the city from August 22 to Septemeber 22.
