I don't know the exact meaning of the word " shbang". I found some sentences using this word "shbang" like below, but did not find the definition of it. Perhaps is it another spelling of "shebang"?

1)You can see their enthusiasm of being a part of the HRC Budapest. The restaurant only opened this week, with no grand opening "shbang".

2)but I think a lot of people don't make their food with enough "shbang" … They kind of cater to the middle of the road.

Shbang is not a word. Look up shebang. You'll find the meaning.

@kathy79,
It's a slang term for the fanfare, razzmatazz, fireworks, celebrations etc. that would make something stand out and get people to take notice

Do you remember the Paul Whitehouse character, the bloke who said (among other things?) "I'm a little bit pwhoar, a little bit whoa, a little bit weyy, a little bit swish-swish-swish-swish-swish, I'm a little bit phuh, a little bit urrr, a little bit nnnnnng" ?

Another meaning: all of something

They brought the baby, crib, and the whole shebang to the party.
