Gochujang Makes A Comeback to Shake Shack

Gochujang Makes A Comeback to Shake Shack

K-Wave hits with the return of the Korean-Inspired Menu

Manila I 15 February 2024 Shake Shack brings back the hit Gochujang Chicken sandwich, Chicken Bites, and Fries to Manila starting February 15, firstly available on and on February 19 in all Manila Shacks.


Inspired by Seoul’s vibrant fried chicken scene, our limited-time Gochujang Chicken (P370) features a gochujang-glazed crispy chicken breast topped with toasted sesame seeds that sits over a white kimchi slaw.


Gochujang is a flavor-packed, go-to ingredient in Korean cooking, made with red chili peppers, sticky rice, fermented soybeans, and salt. The result? A red fermented paste that’s kinda spicy, kinda sweet, packed with umami flavor, and used as an anchor in all kinds of stews, marinades, sauces, and more. To complement the gochujang, finely chop garlic and ginger are mixed into our glaze as well. Bringing it all together is our white kimchi slaw, a tribute to the white daikon radishes often served alongside fried chicken and other dishes in Seoul, which cuts through the rich flavors of the chicken. Kimchi is a staple of Korean cuisine made from salted, seasoned, and fermented veggies (ours includes Napa cabbage, daikon radish, and green onion).
