Shake Shack, New York City

New York was the best holiday I’ve had, and our last day and night was a definite highlight (amongst several highlights). We met up with wonderful friend Rosie for the day and together we saw sights, chatted and ate all day and then retreated to a lovely bar we found, The Brass Monkey for an evening of cocktails and watching the sun set.


Afterwards, we went back to our amazing hotel room – Yotel (we upgraded to a King Terrace room and I cannot recommend the hotel and room enough!) an evening bubbles and bubbles!

We were a tad rough the next day. Being hungover and having to pack, check out and then panic-organise Canadian visas that we didn’t realise we needed until we tried to check in….

Oh dear, we needed burgers, STAT.

Shake Shack is disgustingly good. Coronary Heart Disease kinda good. Sheer filth. I LOVED it.  


A simple cheeseburger with tomato and lettuce! Oh, and their famous ShackSauce! Seriously though, look at that cheese!


This was a burger topped with Applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper, tons of cheese and the ShackSauce. It was absolutely amazing.  

The fries are the winner for me. Crinkle cut, for extra crispness which is my absolute favourite with fries – the crispier the better! The topping is a rich cheese gloop which I couldn’t get enough of. It’s so nasty but wonderful. The bacon on top was really nice and chewy/crispy too, but I think I preferred the plainer ones. 

I can totally recommend Shake Shack for ‘one of those’ days. Greasy, wonderful goodness!
