To celebrate the new opening, the burger chain is releasing a a new Roasted Garlic menu.

Available for a limited time till October 15, the items will be launched first at the Gardens by the Bay outlet on August 28, while the other outlets will be selling them from Sep. 3.

Two concretes—frozen custard desserts—exclusive to the Gardens by the Bay outlet will also be available from August 28.

Limited time Roasted Garlic menu

The highlight of the menu is the creamy roasted garlic mayo that is made from scratch.

The limited time menu features two items - and Roasted Garlic Fries and Roasted Garlic Mushroom Burger.

The Roasted Garlic Fries (S$6.50)  is topped with roasted garlic mayo, parmesan and a sprinkle of fresh scallions.

Despite its name, we found that the garlic taste and smell subtle, not overpowering.

The sauce can be quite salty when heaped on in excess though, so... don't.

We tried the Roasted Garlic Mushroom Burger (S$12.50) next. You can also get it as a double for S$16.

Made with hormone-free Angus beef, provolone cheese, sautéed portobello mushrooms caramelised in butter, crispy fried shallots and roasted garlic mayo, the Roasted Garlic Mushroom Burger also did not boast an overly strong garlic taste or smell.

The taste of beef and mushrooms were the first flavours to hit us, while the fried shallots adds a more varied texture to each bite.

But unless you're a fan of mushrooms and/or fried shallots, the classics are probably a safer bet.


Concretes are custard/ soft serve desserts served at Shake Shack.

Inspired by the the gardens and plants from around the world at Gardens by the Bay, two new concretes featuring the same vanilla custard base make their debut as Gardens by the Bay exclusive menu items.

Blended with forest berries jam and shortbread, the Berries by the Bay (S$7.50/S$9.50) is topped with fresh blueberries and dried osmanthus flowers.

The dried osmanthus acts more as a garnish as the berries come across much stronger.

Featuring mango chunks, passionfruit bits, and shortbread, Tropic Like It’s Hot (S$7.50/S$9.50) offers a more tropical fruity twist.

We struggled to choose a favourite between both concretes.

Despite their differences, the tartness of the fruits in both flavours cuts through the sweetness and creaminess of the custard, making it easy to go back for more without feeling that they were cloyingly sweet.

While the shortbread added some crunch, we didn't really care for it and would have preferred more fresh fruit.
