LOWER EAST SIDE — Popular burger and milkshake joint Black Tap is now serving its famously decadent sweets out of a new outpost on Ludlow Street.

The eatery opened its latest location at 177 Ludlow St. Monday, debuting an all-new Cake Shake — a cake batter milkshake with a vanilla frosted rim and rainbow sprinkles, topped with Funfetti cake, whipped cream and a cherry.

The location also serves the chain's classic Crazy Shake flavors, including  the Cotton Candy and Cookie Shake, as well as a selection of burgers, wings and salads.

The towering milkshakes have been known to draw long lines to the chain's SoHo and Meatpacking District branches, causing Lower East Siders to worry the latest outpost would clog up the heavily trafficked Ludlow Street.

On Tuesday afternoon, no line had formed outside the 55-seat restaurant, which sits near the corner of East Houston Street.

Black Tap offers a extensive menu of craft beer on tap, as well as cocktails made with soju and sake, such as the Tokyo Lemonade (featuring citrus sake, yuzu and lemon) and the Black Tap Mule (featuring soju, fresh lime, mint and ginger beer).

The location features a colorful Big Apple-themed mural by street artist Fumero, featuring the city skyline and Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G.
