It’s only a matter of time that Shake Shack sets up a second branch in Singapore. Its first outlet at Jewel Changi Airport opened in April this year to much fanfare, with fans queuing up to six hours to get a taste of the famous upmarket “fine-casual” American burger chain.
But Changi is still pretty far flung for, say, Westies craving for a ShackBurger. Which is probably why Shake Shack is setting up its second outlet at… (drumroll) 89 Neil Road, a charming shophouse occupying a sweet spot right in the middle of the Keong Saik, Duxton and Tanjong Pagar neighbourhoods. The address was also formerly Tiger Balm's historical factory and eBay’s Singapore headquarters.
8days.sg did some sleuthing and found out the location of the second outlet, which is currently still under renovation. The construction workers at the site confirm to us that it’s a Shake Shack eatery, and renovations will be completed sometime “by the end of December”.
