Default Shake Shack at Jewel

I haven't eaten at Shake Shack @ Jewel yet, but I headed to Jewel yesterday in the late morning for a walk around. This was a Saturday, the first day of the June school holidays...

I walked by the Shake Shack outlet at Jewel at 11am...



At that hour, there was already a queue to get in...



...and it stretched about 50 meters...



You would have to wait to get it, but the queue didn't look too bad at that hour, although the queue barriers along the corridor indicated that the line could get far, far longer...

This was the line at 12pm yesterday, going all the way to the New Balance shop.



I think if I really needed a Shake Shack burger fix, I would have brought some reading matter (Or at least my iphone or iPad) and joined the queue, but really there were so many eating other options at Jewel that one could get a meal without queuing too long at many other F&B outlets at Jewel.

I also realized, as I was writing this post, that my first Shake Shack experience was way back in 2014, in New York, at the recommendation of fellow SQTalker kelvgoh, (Thanks, kelvgoh!).

Good to have Shake Shack in Singapore now. If anyone has sampled their burgers in the Singapore outlet at Jewel, do share your experience and your feedback on the burgers!

I tried Shake Shack a few weeks back. I queued on a weekday around 4 ish, got to the counter around 515pm and got my food around 5.30pm.

The burgers are good. Buns are soft and pillowy. Wish the patty had more juice though. I think it was over seasoned a little. I had the basic Shack Burger, it was really small... Eat the burger at once because it doesn't taste good when eaten cold.

Skip the fries.

Had the Pandan Shake - it's a bit sweet, but really thick. Think of it as an ondeh-ondeh on steroids or in liquid form.

I would gladly go back for the burger again and perhaps the other shakes. . It's too small to make me satiated.

Had Shake Shack few times during my trips to Seoul over the last couple of years. Of course its much better than the fast food burgers but given the price, it shoud taste better. The taste is ok but I would never queue more than half an hour for it and wonder how people can Q for more than 2 hours. There's a few outlets in S Korea and there's no need to Q more than half hour if at all during peak times.

Yup, it was recently available to Priority Pass, DragonPass, LoungeKey, and maybe some other lounge passes users. This makes it the 2nd lounge in SIN in the landside area.

Suppose like T3, need to show both the Membership Card and a valid Boarding Pass? It was the "problem" with Haven before that access was possible without even flying.
