It’s getting hot in Manila with the debut of Dark Meat Hot Chicken (P310) in Manila Shacks.

The Hot Chicken is a fan-favorite in the US where it has run as a limited time offer in 2017, 2018, and 2020. The spicy sandwich was updated for Asia using a premium chicken thigh, and this is the first time in Shake Shack’s history serving dark meat chicken. Starting July 21, Filipino foodies can now turn the heat up and have a taste of Dark Meat Hot Chicken.

The Hot Chicken is crafted from an 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 and 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. 

“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 US 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 Shake Shack’s commitment to serve fresh, simple, high-quality food at a great value through its mission to Stand For Something Good.
