All the way from New York City, Shake Shack opened its first Korean branch in Gangnam in July, 2015. We do remember that there were hundreds of people waiting in queue for the launch day frenzy. Months after the grand opening, lines can still be seen.
The menu consists of their burgers, hot dogs, fries and shakes. The patty, bun and cheese are brought from the U.S., while the fresh tomatoes and lettuce are sourced locally. The burger menu is consistent with that in the US, but you're trying the restaurant out for the first time, you can go for the Shack Burger. The most basic of burgers in their menu, it consists of a patty, cheese, tomato slice and lettuce. Potato starch used in the bun gives a nice texture, while the patty made from fresh meat is quite juicy and flavorful. You also have to try their frozen custard. Each store presents unique flavors and the Gangnam store’s choice is... Honey Butter Crunch.
