NEW: Shake Shack's Dark Meat Hot Chicken Sandwich!

It's dark, it's spicy, and you just gotta have it!

Shake Shack has turned to the dark side with the debut of its new Dark Meat Hot Chicken, launched last July 21.




It's inspired by the Hot Chicken, a fan favorite in the U.S. where it was on a limited time offer in 2017, 2018 and 2020. This spicy sandwich was updated for the Asian palate by using a premium chicken thigh, and for the first time in Shake Shack’s history, made with dark meat chicken. 


The result is this stunner of a sandwich crafted from all-natural cage-free dark meat chicken thigh slow-cooked in a creamy buttermilk marinade, hand-dipped into Shack-made batter, dredged through seasoned flour then crisp-fried. The chicken is dusted with a hot pepper blend and topped with Louisiana hot sauce slaw, kosher dill pickles and served on a pillowy potato bun. Yum.


“We have been developing a dark meat chicken sandwich since we opened in Asia,” said Shake Shack Culinary Director Mark Rosati. “We couldn’t be more excited to debut our first dark meat item ever with the launch of Dark Meat Hot Chicken in Manila and create Inspired Food & Drink for our fans in Asia.”


Shake Shack first introduced chicken to the U.S. menu in 2015 with the Chicken Shack, a crispy all-natural chicken breast sandwich with shredded lettuce, pickles and buttermilk herb mayo. The Dark Meat Hot Chicken is an innovation of the chicken menu and furthers the brand's commitment to serve fresh, simple, high-quality food at a great value.
