Shake Shack has done it again!
Just when you think you’ve sunk your teeth into every sandwich and every burger that the metro has to offer, top resto Shake Shack throws down an offer that you just can’t refuse: the Dark Meat Hot Chicken.
The Hot Chicken is an international fan favorite, noted especially by its limited run in the US in 2017, 2018 and then 2020. But the sandwich got an upgrade for its Asian market, with Shake Shack using premium chicken thigh—which marks a first in Shake Shake history.
The Shake Shack Dark Meat Hot Chicken
“We have been developing a dark meat chicken sandwich since we opened in Asia,” says Mark Rosati, Shake Shack Culinary Director. “We couldn’t be more excited to debut our first dark meat item ever with the launch of Dark Meat Hot Chicken in Manila and create inspired food and drink for our fans in Asia.”
The spice is just right and builds as you consume the burger, so don’t let your heart drop when your mouth doesn’t burn with that first bite.
The ideal partners
You need something to wash down the Shake Shack Dark Meat Hot Chicken with, and we’re proposing at least one of the following:
- Strawberry Lemonade – Cut that spice with something the perfect balance of sweet and tart
- Chocolate Pudding Shake – The thickness of this “drink” is no joke, but we cannot deny that the calories it undoubtedly has are worth it
- 6-piece Chicken Bites – For that winner winner chicken dinner!
- Frozen Custard – You can’t go wrong with any of the flavors here, but we do hold a special place in our hearts for the Calamansi Pie, Oh My!
Before you run out, run to the nearest Shake Shack and grab the Dark Meat Hot Chicken, we have another offer for you: From July 25 to August 24, you can purchase a Dark Meat Hot Chicken item or set with a minimum spend of P800 to get to the next level and get vouchers for as much as P800 for your next Shack purchase. But what are these sets, anyway?
- Shake and Spice set (P530) featuring a Dark Meat Hot Chicken + Shake.
- Chicks All That, Dark Meat Hot Chicken + Chicken Shack + 6pc Chicken Bites (P780)
Now the only thing you need to do is mark your calendars.
