And not only their juicy burgers will leave you wanting more. But also their other tasty foods. Such as the fries and milkshakes!
With this in mind, get ready to visit this place!
Satisfy Your Cravings
Shake Shack opened its 14th store at ‘Daejeon Galleria Time World’ in November 20.
Of course, it was a complete success! Because no matter at what time you go, you will see most of the tables already full. And no wonder why. When their hamburgers are so tasty and in general, all their food is delicious.
Plus they are combining the american style with korean. Because of this, you can find some signature dishes. Such as the ‘Daejeon Bam Bam’. Perfect to satisfy your cravings.
The menu is not that different. But since it is South Korea, they might introduce new flavors of burgers. In order to adapt to the country. But of course, just by seasons.
Once you have decided what to order, you need to line up. In case you do not speak korean, do not panic! At least in my experience, one of the staff spoke english. Either way you can just point out the things from the menu that you want.
For people that want to take out, there is a machine where you can order. Because of this, you wont have to queque.
Unless you want to buy some of their merch, because it is completely adorable. They have notebooks, plushies and even a lego set! With this in mind, you might want to prepare to empty your wallet.
This restaurant opened during COVID season. Therefore, they had all the prevention signs ready. Like this one in the table. Which asks you to wear your face mask.
Besides, at the entrance we had to register through the QR code. And disinfect our hands in a sink they installed for this.
Once you order
When you order, they give you this machine that vibrates when your meal is ready. Along with a coupon. Which you must scratch with a coin to know what did you win.
In my case, I won two sodas. Which means that the next time I come, I can get two for free. As long as it is in the period of time that it says.
I think it was a nice detail. It makes people want to comeback soon, for sure.
It is worth to mention that once you go and get your order, there is a self-bar in front. Where you can get all the sauces for your food.
Everything tasted as good as I remembered it.
This hamburger does not have meat. Instead, a crisp-fried portobello mushroom filled with melted cheese. And let me tell you, it was so delicious!
The bread was so soft. Which left me wanting more. And the crispy portobello, it was INDEED CRISPY. You could hear the crunch perfectly.
I was left with a surprise when I munched it for the first time. It exploded! Because the portobello mushroom is filled with cheese. And that was a lot of cheese! Which I, of course, loved it!
But you need to be careful of not staining your clothes due to this. Plus, the melted cheese is pretty hot. Therefore, you can burn your tongue.
The vegetables were in fact fresh. And you can notice that just by looking at their colors. Plus, the tomato was so juicy. All the ingredients combined perfectly.
In general, the taste was so savory that it left me eager for more.
The only downside could be that it is small. Therefore, it is not filling at all. However, it is worth to eat it just to pamper your palate.
The fries were the best part for me. Because of how much I missed this style of fries.
They were not greasy at all, but crispy and salty. Just the way I like.
While the outside is crispy, the interior is soft. So it kinda melts in your mouth. The reason to why it that makes them addictive.
In addition, these are wide. And the size of the order is ok for one person.
Eating here it is indeed pricey. Because they do not have sets. You must order each thing individually. However, the taste is so good that it is worthy to try even once! I think the taste was similar to the ones in America.
