Korean Fried Chicken has been one of the highlights of my adult life. Now imagine combining those incomparable flavors with fast food, and you may just have a game-changer on your hands. 

Shake Shack has just launched a limited-edition Korean-inspired menu that features a Korean-style fried Chick’n sandwich

Made with a crispy chicken breast that’s glazed with a spicy-sweet Gochujang sauce, it’s then rested on a bed of Choi’s Kimchi slaw and topped with toasted sesame seeds.

Accompanying menu items include Korean-style Gochujang Chick’n Bites (white meat chicken bites served with Gochujang mayo), Korean-style Gochujang Fries (Crispy Crinkle Cut Fries served with a Gochujang mayo), and a Black Sugar Vanilla shake (toasted black sugar mixed with vanilla frozen custard and topped with whipped cream and black sugar syrup). 

The menu concept was inspired by the Shake Shack culinary team’s trip to South Korea, where they were recommended to try a Korean Fried Chicken joint. 

As a fan of Korean fried chicken, I can attest to how life-changing that experience can be.
