Shake Shack @ New York, NY

when it comes to burger, it’s almost a regional pride. people on the west coast are all about in and out while people from Virginia DC area are all about five guys. shake shack is a new yorker thing.

i can careless about where my burger comes from, a burger is a burger. i like in and out because of its freshness, i like five guys because of its variety of toppings (MUSHROOMS). this is my 1st time trying out shake shack.

it’s right outside our hotel in time square and it was about time to get some snacks. super packed as expected, so we got take out.


all of their burgers are made of 100% all-natural angus beef. i got the shackburger with 3 orders of fries – cheeseburger topped with lettuce, tomato, and shacksauce. i know its a lot ketchup. i like my fries take a bath in the ketchup before entering my mouth. hmmmm 


vanilla frozen custard with strawberry puree.

the burger was good, but i wasnt too crazy about it. the patty was lil dry, not juicy. i did like the vanilla custard a lot tho. very sweet and smooth texture. like the sweeter version of mcdonald’s ice cream aka my fave ice cream on the planet.

they are openning a store in chestnut hill (boston) later this spring!
