From a press release:
“It takes two! Shake Shack is proud to announce a limited edition collaboration with celebrated chef Erik Bruner-Yang for the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area. Crispy Peking Chicken ($6.49) consists of a crispy chicken breast with Maketto hoisin sauce, pickle, cucumber and scallion. This DMV-exclusive sandwich is an updated comfort classic from Chef Erik Bruner-Yang and Shake Shack culinary director Mark Rosati.
Crispy Peking Chicken is available from Friday, April 15th—24th at the Dupont Circle, F Street, Union Station, Inner Harbor and Tysons Corner Shacks.
“The flavors of Peking duck are almost as American as Shake Shack in this day and age,” said Chef Erik Bruner-Yang, founder of Toki Underground and Maketto. This joint effort furthers Shake Shack’s mission to work with best-in-class culinary partners.
Served on a pillowy potato roll, Crispy Peking Chicken is cage-free chicken breast—no hormones or antibiotics ever—slow-cooked in a creamy buttermilk marinade, hand-dipped into Shack-made batter and dredged through seasoned flour.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be collaborating with Chef Erik Yang for this special one-time chicken sandwich,” said Mark Rosati. “Crispy Peking Chicken harnesses and highlights all that’s great about our fine casual chicken through Chef Yang’s cooking style and flavors.”
