I had a chance of taking a long weekend to New York City last weekend. It was much needed since my life has been resembling a country song as of late.
Sometimes you have to get away to recharge the batteries and perhaps pay a crazy price to get lost in an action adventure movie with so much eye candy you don’t know where to look (Fast Five). Or reconnect with friends that you haven’t seen since last summer or later.
Another thing one must do while in New York City is eat! They have so many food options how can you not? I created my food wish list to which my friend responded, “you know you are only here for a weekend, right?” Yes, I knew I was only there for a weekend and I was ambitious.
I overshot however that just means I need to keep visiting NYC until I actually accomplish my food wish list – not a hardship by any means.
Today’s post is about burger love which is fortuitous since May is National Burger Month. I knew the place I wanted to go to and sample their delights thanks to subscribing to A Hamburger Today. A Hamburger Today is a deadly thing since reading their articles will have you dreaming of your next burger and wanting to take a cross country trip to sample the “burgery” delights of each state or maybe that’s just me.
Shake Shack was the name of the game I was playing. Hearing good things about this “burgeropolis” I knew I had to sample the delights, so I did. One word, Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
They had me at Potato Bun and then the taste buds went on happy overload with what was between those buns. Oh Em Geeeeeee! A juicy burger cooked to medium and topped with the usual suspects; lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, cheese — I am not a Plain Jane, I like my burger fully dressed. The accessory to this party in my mouth was the Shake Sauce. I am not sure what it is but it is goo-OOd! The Shake Shack burger is truly a burger that I would be happy to eat time and time again; the line out the door proves that I am not alone. I am already thinking about a return trip, sigh.
Until Next Time,
Shake Shack: 691 8th Avenue/Corner of 8th Avenue & 44th Street NYC, 646.435.0135
