SHAKE SHACK ADDS KOREAN FLAVORS TO BURGERS AND FRIES WITH GOCHUJANG SET
Get ready to head over to Shake Shack soon if you're in love with Korean cuisine. In addition to its burgers and fries, the New York-bred chain has now introduced gochujang flavors.
For those who are not familiar, gochujang is a red chili paste made with glutinous rice and meju powder, mostly used as a dipping sauce for cooking or on its own. Shake Shack 's culinary director, Mark Rosati, influenced by his recent trip to the region, created new menus focused on some of his favorite finds. Kicking off the selection is the Gochujang Chicken Shack, a Korean fried chicken-influenced burger. It features a sous-vide patty followed by Kimchi-slaw and mayonnaise for a sweet-and-spicy taste with gochujang glaze and sesame seeds. Meanwhile, the Gochujang Shack atop an Angus beef patty with pickles, Kimchi-slaw and gochujang mayo dressing is a mix of emmental cheese. The Gochujang Fries, which are topped with gochujang mayo, bacon, gochugaru (red chili powder) and chives, finish off the collection.
If you're located in Korea, head over from September 29 to the end of October to a nearby Shake Shack location to check out the limited menu.
