Shake Shack is another item on my to-try list in New York. I’ve seen so many Instagram photos and blog posts about it. So for dinner the first night, before watching The Phantom of the Opera, we ate at Shake Shack’s location on 8th Ave.
There were sooooo many people, long lineup and not enough seats.
there’s a beeper that lights up when your food is ready….
Shack Burger (cheeseburger topped with lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce)…. this was so yummmmmy. The bread is the same as any fast food joint but it’s the meat and ShackSauce that sets it apart. The meat was juicy and tender, and on top of that, the ShackSauce made it even juicier.
Smoke Shack (Cheeseburger topped with all-natural applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper and ShackSauce)….
fries.. average.. not too crispy..
black and white shake (vanilla and fudge)… this was too sweet for my liking… if it weren’t that sweet, I would have liked it… very thick..
Because the burger was so good, we had to have it again before we left. This time, we went to the original shack at Madison Square Park.
I read about the 45 minutes line at lunch, so we went right when it opened… and there was a line (a short one)!
This time, I took pictures of closeup:
Shack Burger… Kinda small burger.. but o so delicious!
Smoke Shack .. all the meaty goodness..
fries… looks kinda soggy…
strawberry shake…we mentioned that we didn’t like Black and White cause it was so sweet… so they suggested we try strawberry… this was less sweet.. but again, it too was overly sweet.
I suggest to go to Shake Shack just for their Shack burgers…. not the shakes.
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
