Sunway Resort City will be bringing us the world-famous CrazyShake® milkshakes and Craft Burgers from Black Tap in NYC.

By Corina Tan

Globally acclaimed for its signature burgers and Instagram-worthy decadent CrazyShake® milkshakes, Black Tap is owned by husband-and-wife team, Chris Barish and Julie Mulligan.  Opened in downtown New York 7 years ago, with a new take on a classic burger joint with a New York vibe all its own, the menu offers something for everyone from signature burgers like the All-American, and the fan favourite Texan Burger, along with chicken sandwiches, burger salads, wings, and snacks.

Since opening its first 15-seat location in NYC’s Soho neighbourhood, Black Tap has expanded to the West Coast with locations in Las Vegas and Anaheim at the Downtown Disney District® at Disneyland Resort.  Having earned numerous accolades since, including the coveted “People’s Choice Award” (2015-2017) and “Judges Choice Award” (2020 and 2021) at the New York City Wine and Food Festival’s Burger Bash, Black Tap is now available in iconic locations in the US including The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, the Downtown Disney District® at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA, and internationally in Geneva, Zurich, Singapore, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.  They are now five-time winners at the New York City Wine & Food Festival’s Burger Bash competition for the wagyu beef Greg Norman, Italian-American inspired Mulberry Street burger, and most recently The Wagyu Steakhouse Burger. Black Tap’s famous CrazyShake® milkshakes have reached worldwide acclaim with their whimsical and over-the-top flavours such as The CakeShake® and the Cookies ‘N Cream Supreme.



Now expanding in Kuala Lumpur in a joint-venture with Sunway Resort, this will mark its first venture into Malaysia by end of 2022. Black Tap Malaysia’s announcement is in line with Sunway Resort’s ‘once-in-a-generation transformation’, sealing its position as Asia’s leading fully-integrated destination and will be located adjacent to the main street at lobby level of the hotel. This transformation of Sunway Resort forms part of the evolution and elevation of Sunway Hotels and Resorts as it strives to create exceptional and memorable experiences for every guest. It now adds to its list of distinct dining experiences; a New York-based restaurant that pays tribute to the great American luncheonette experience.

“We are thrilled with this partnership. Malaysia’s dining scene is thriving, and we want to be right there in the epicentre of it. Black Tap is all about bringing a New York-inspired energy around the world from the street art murals throughout the restaurant to the 80s pop and 90s hip-hop pumping through the speakers. We are so excited to introduce our new guests to our award-winning burgers such as the Greg Norman and having them experience our over-the-top shakes, which are sure to bring a smile to any child or adult who orders one,” said Barish, a leading entrepreneur, restaurateur, and film producer. Previously Barish has also served as a key player in the development, launch and success of some notable entertainment outlets and restaurants in the United States.


Alex Castaldi, Senior General Manager of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur Hotels said, “We are delighted to welcome a prime culinary brand such as Black Tap to stand alongside our top-notch signature restaurants at Sunway Resort. Here, we believe luxury can be fun and Black Tap’s award-winning craft burgers and ingenious milkshakes will give everyone from the young and influential, to today’s generation of foodies and families, to corporate influencers and Malaysians from all walks of life, another wonderful reason to stay, and Malaysians from all walks of life, another wonderful reason to stay, play and ultimately dine with us.”
