My Review of Shake Shack Dubai

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today I got super lucky and got a rare exclusive chance to tryout the Shake Shack’s first Middle East branch, that will open in Dubai on Thursday.

We got invited in by Mr. Nadar Hallal, Al-Shaya’s Head of Marketing-Casual Dining. We also got to chat with Shake Shack’s famous Mark Rosati, Manager of Culinary & Training.

We tried out three burgers: The Shake Burger, the ‘Shroom Burger (vegi), and the Cheese Burger. We also had cheese fries. As for drinks, we had the Shake Attack Concrete (oh my god, so devilish), Chocolate Shake, and Coke.

The Shake Burger was amazing, and that special Shake Shack sauce was ever so yummy. The ‘Shroom Burger will turn any meat lover into a vegetarian, with it’s perfectly cooked portobello mushroom stuffed with tasty cheese. As for the cheese burger, with this burger you could tell that the meat used was excellent.

I had a chat with Mr. Rosati about the source of the meat, since Mark of 248am commented that the meat used in the Middle East might not be the same great-quality one used back in the States. Well, Mr. Rosati confirmed to us that the meat used will be the same exact beef used in the States; supplied by Creek Stone, Shake Shack’s cattle supplier.

The Shake Attack Concrete is a whole meal by it self, and heaven for the chocolate lover. It’s made with Chocolate custard, hot fudge, chocolate truffle cookie dough and Valrhona chocolate chunks. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s also topped with chocolate sprinkles.

Shake Shack Dubai will open this Thursday, at 10 am. Shake Shack Kuwait will open sometime in May or June. Mr. Rosati said that the Kuwaiti branch will be special, because of the small kitchen which means that the seating area will mostly be outside of the restaurant.

I’m going to eat there again when it opens on thursday. After that, I will anxiously wait for them to open up in Kuwait.

  7. Edez says:

    don’t tell me you missed the frozen custard last night!? I had a combination with pistachio, it was the bomb!

  8. Hila says:

    Is the meat being used HALAL????

  9. Sarah Chreim says:

    Does that mean that the meat is not Halal if it’s coming from The States ?

  10. bob says:

    the real halal? (thab7 islami) or the fake kind, where you say bismAllah and eat and that somehow puts a magical spell on the meat that reverses time and makes the animal get killed the islamic way?

    • buzfairy says:

      The one where u say besm ellah allathi layathor m3 esmehi shay2 fe alarth wala fe alsama2 🙂

      Now getting to the serious part… Since this particular shake shack’s in dubai, an islamic country, I would without doubt believe that the meat’s 7alal.

      As to which way it went, I don’t have a clue 😦

    whats islamic about dubai? they sell alcohol and have prostitutes every where. nothing islamic there. there are a7adeeth about those who drink, who sell alcohol, who make it possible to sell alcohol, and those who are acceptant of such practices.

    nothing islamic about dubai.

    • buzfairy says:

      Like it or not, Dubai is an Islamic state. Alcohol is served there according to specific rules, and muslims shouldn’t consume according to Dubai law.

  12. bob says:

    why would i believe someone, or in this case a country, with such ethics and principles? It doesnt matter what rules they create, alcohol is banned in islam. any country or person who serves or particaptes in its distribution or the making of it, is lying to themselves when they say they are muslim/islamic.

    If i went into a restaurant and i saw the manager was a drunkard serving alcohol while sleeping with prostitutes, would I eat at his restaurant if he claimed it was halal? Certainly not. Im not a fool, and im not gonna lie to myself because i feel the need to cave to pressure of eating from so called places to satisfy my urges.

    • buzfairy says:

      With this attitude, I don’t think ur very much welcomed anyways in Dubai.

      Pls stop ranting on my blog… If u say the p word one more time, I’m gona change ur whole comments.

      I let u vent out a bit, but ur turning this into a debate. So pls be warned, be nice or be censored.
