Shake Shack's gochujang chicken burger is headed stateside
Following a brief run in Korea last October, Shake Shack's gochujang-glazed chicken burger is heading stateside.
According to the New York-based burger chain on Tuesday, the limited edition Korea-inspired line of gochujang and kimchi-based products will be available at all branches in the United States until April 5.
The chicken sandwich features a spicy-sweet gochujang-glazed crispy chicken breast served with white kimchi slaw in a toasted sesame seed bun.
Shake Shack said it teamed up with Choi’s Kimchi, a kimchi company based in Portland, Oregon, to source the white kimchi that goes into the slaw.
The burger chain also offers Korean Gochujang Chick'n Bites, chicken bites served with gochujang mayo sauce, and Korean Gochujang Fries, crispy crinkle-cut fries also served with gochujang mayo sauce.
“Kimchi is a seriously tasty staple of Korean cuisine made from salted, seasoned, and fermented veggies,” Shake Shack said on its website. “Our take on the classic was such a hit in Seoul, Korean-style Fried Chick’n and Korean Gochujang Chick’n Bites and Fries have finally landed in all our U.S. Shacks.”
