Comfort Food at Shake Shack 

Mushroom burger
Few years ago when I visited New York, I came across the hugely popular Shake Shack, a modern-day roadside style burger stand. Sadly, I couldn’t visit the place as there was a big line. But luckily Shake Shack opened its outlet in Dubai. And now its become my go-to place for burgers and fries. 

Brought to the UAE by Alshaya Group, Shake Shack has many outlets across Dubai. I visited their The Dubai Mall shack. It is conveniently located in Level 1 of the Mall near the waterfall. 

All their shacks have similar interiors with dim lighting and comfortable seating. You can expect cool music and ultra chill vibes. And American-style warm and friendly hospitality. 

The menu of Shake Shack is small and simple. They serve burgers, hot dogs, fries, frozen custard, shakes and ice creams.

All their meat burgers are free from antibiotics and they don’t use any artificial ingredients in their crinkle cut fries. They offer gourmet-style fast food classics. 

This kid friendly eatery is good for the entire family. A perfect place to give-in to your burger cravings. 

Frozen custard at Shack Shack
Here’s what I ordered this time around:

  • Strawberry Mint Lemonade is freshly made in-house. It was super refreshing and tasty.
  • Their crinkle cut Cheese Fries slathered with cheese is one of my favorites. I ordered extra cherry pepper to give my cheese fries a slightly spicy flavor. If there is fries in heaven, it must be tasting something like the cheese fries from Shake Shack.
  • Being a vegetarian, I could only try their Shroom Burger. It had crisp-fried portobello mushroom filled with Monterey Jack, Colby and cheddar cheeses topped with lettuce, tomato and Shakesauce. This burger was utterly delicious and not big in size. Shake Shack is one of the five best places in Dubai for vegetarian burgers,
  • For dessert, I ordered their Red Velvet frozen custard ice cream blended at high speed with mix-in called Concrete. It had a blend of vanilla custard and red velvet cake. I enjoyed it.

Shake Shack is one of the best places for fast food. If you compare to other burger joints, its slightly expensive, but their quality is very high. The food, the drinks, the service and the atmosphere is great.

Do you have a favorite burger joint in Dubai? Do let me know, as I am always in search of a good veggie burger in town.
