Continuing to draw inspiration from all over the world, Shake Shack has now announced its latest limited-edition menu offering inspired by the iconic flavors of South Korea.

The new Korean-Style Fried Chick’n menu draws from a trip the Shake Shack culinary team took to South Korea to visit the first location opened in the country. Building on the gochujang fueled creations launched in South Korea last year, the latest offerings heavily features kimchi, made from fermented  napa cabbage, daikon radish, carrots, garlic, Asian pear, green onion, onion and sea salt,  along with a sticky, spicy, sweet, umami, fermented gochujang glaze.

The leading Korean-style Fried Chick’n sandwich begins with a spicy-sweet gochujang glazed crispy chicken breast placed on top of white kimchi slaw, made with Choi’s Kimchi, with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds. All held together between a perfectly grilled pillowy-soft potato bun.

Accompanying menu items include Korean-style Gochujang Chick’n Bites, Korean-style Gochujang Fries and Black Sugar Vanilla Shake. The shake features hand-spun, caramel toasted black sugar mixed vanilla frozen custard topped with whipped cream and black sugar syrup to replicate the popular flavor found throughout South Korea, Taiwan and other Asian markets.

The Korean-style Fried Chick’n ($7.19 USD), Korean-style Gochujang Chick’n Bites ($5.19 USD for 6-piece and $7.19 for 10-piece USD), Korean-style Gochujang Fries ($3.49 USD) and Black Sugar Vanilla Shake ($5.69 USD) will be available at Shake Shack locations nation wide from January 5 until April 5.

For more food and beverage news, South Korea ate $6.8 billion USD in fried chicken this year.
