Now, I know that my mum and my boss and whoever else reads my blog (hi guys!) so excuse me for having to say this but a Shake Shack burger? It’s like… an orgasm in my mouth. Not that that should’ve come as a surprise because Every. Single. Person. who’s had a Shake Shack burger had already warned me about that, but you know how sometimes you just don’t know it yourself until you know it yourself? Right.
Anyway, we touched down in NYC at about 3pm yesterday and after checking in to our hotel, which by the way is so crazy amazing it’s gonna get a post all to itself but just check out the shower!
Ok, anyway, it’s 6pm and we’re at Shake Shack for dinner. It’s our first time so we get the regular stuff – a single Shake Shack burger, a double Shake Shack burger, fries and a couple of concrete shakes. Ooooooh baby.

The burger is DELICIOUS. Meaty, juicy, cheesy and just every kind of perfect. The closest thing I can think of from London would’ve been that Meatwagon burger. As for the concrete shakes, everyone raved on about them and I mean, I should’ve expected them to be concrete but seriously, I didn’t rate them all that much. Gives you an aneurysm trying to suck the thing up your straw (so I used my straw to shovel it into my mouth instead) and overall just too sweet.
Oh, and we went to the Midtown West branch because it’s closer to our hotel but never fear, there are plans afoot to also hit up Madison Square Park in the next four days 😉
