Top of the Line Comfort Food Now Cooking at Love Shack
For the owners of Love Shack, the primary goal is to elevate the status of soul food by making use of the best ingredients and best preparation methods possible. The masters behind Café Caribana and Garlic Rose were a bit apprehensive venturing into what was initially a purely burger-oriented concept because the area that was provided for them was located in the food court. However, fortune came tumbling their way, and SM Aura Premier provided them with a space where they could apply an all-day dining concept. Thanks to this space, the group was able to run with a concept that they could go full-throttle with, in terms of creativity. Everything from the slate grey wall brick to the colourful sofa prints was personally chosen by the owners.
Love Shack Burger Creation 1First on our menu was Love Shack Burger Creation 1 (P260, with bigger beef burger - P315). This combination consists of a choice between beef and chicken patty, fresh mushroom sauce, caramelised onions, lettuce, and a helping of delicious gorgonzola cheese wedged between two slices of special homemade bread. It is then served with a choice of potato wedges or chips, mustard, mayo, ketchup, and dill pickles. Patrons can choose whether to take it with a bottle of beer or a glass of wine. With this burger, I experience what I like to call, “love at first bite”. The bread is made so perfectly that it wraps the patty in a snug little hug when you bite into it, which is fantastic because it does not interfere with the presence of the burger. The owners were unable to find a bun that would blend perfectly with their burger patty, so they decided to create their own. The patty itself—we had the beef—is a wonder all on its own: thick, juicy and flavourful. This little treasure took them around three months to fully bring to fruition.
