Rosati also told CNA Lifestyle that deciding on the burger was an easy choice because the aim was to reflect Lee’s culinary style.
“We have been humbled by Shake Shack’s reception in Singapore and couldn’t be more excited to finally work with Malcolm for our first-ever chef collaboration,” said Rosati. “He is a talented and thoughtful chef, and we bonded over burgers since he worked at Harry’s Tap Room in the US. We’re serving a burger close to his heart and hope our fans love it as much as we do!”
As a nod to its fine dining roots, Shake Shack has collaborated with some of the most influential chefs in the world including Danny Yip of The Chairman in Hong Kong, Zaiyu Hasegawa of Den in Tokyo, David Chang of Momofuku in New York, Kang Mingoo of Mingles in Seoul, and Dominique Ansel in New York.
The Shake Shack x Candlenut Special will be available only on Saturday (Nov 5), from 11am until items are sold out, at its 89 Neil Road outlet.
