New York-based burger chain Shake Shack is known for local collaborations (can we get another Gordy’s jalapeño cheeseburger?). Now the company is teaming up with chef Erik Bruner-Yang of Toki Underground and Maketto for another limited-run creation: the crispy peking chicken sandwich, a duck-ish riff on the buttermilk-soaked classic with Maketto’s hoisin sauce, pickles, cucumber, scallion, all on a soft potato roll.

The sandwich ($6.49) will be available on Friday, April 15 through April 24, exclusively at five area locations: Dupont Circle, F Street, Union Station, Tysons Corner, and Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. If the dish is anywhere near as good as Bruner-Yang’s fried chicken at Maketto, expect to be very, very happy.
