NY Eating Cheating Tour 2012: Shake Shack
I’ve heard a lot about Shake Shack over the years, and their infamous hour-plus long lines. Well, anything worth waiting in line for that long, I want to try. Finally went to one today, and it was very good, but I wouldn’t call it great. I had a Smoke Shack Burger, which had bacon and cherry peppers on it, along with their Shack Sauce (whatever that is). I saw some other people’s burgers, and they were very small, so I got a double (my cousin got a single). The burgers themselves definitely had more of a fast food flavor than a gourmet flavor, like my Umami Burger in LA, a go-to cheat meal for me. The place is also famous for their shakes and custard, so I had a Fair Shake, which was a vanilla shake with fair trade coffee. It was incredibly average. The shake: not worth the cheat. The burger: worth the cheat, although without the cherry peppers, I’d probably say it wasn’t worth it. It would not crack the top 10 in LA. I should open up an In-N-Out Burger here in Times Square, I’d make a mint!
P.S. - I’m impressed with the photos my iPhone takes. I may take my home paleo photos with it from now on too.
