After buying a new iPhone at the Apple Store in Covent Garden I decided to have lunch at Shake Shack inside the Market Building. The fast casual restaurant was opened last year and its popularity has grown ever since. It is the one and only in England. I discovered Shake Shack while I was in New York one year with my friend and I love it ever since. We noticed the restaurant as people queued around the block waiting to be served. May I add that it was winter, cold and raining? If people are happy to do all that for burger and fries, they must be damn good, right? We started queuing and 45 minutes we could finally order. I will never forget how great the burger tasted, especially after being soaking wet and cold. Since then I am a Shake Shake convert and burgers somewhere else will never taste the same.
Today I ordered a double ShackBurger with fries and a diet coke. A single Shake Shack cheeseburger costs £5 and the double £8. It is 100% Aberdeen Agnus beef. The ShackBurger comes with lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce. The ShackSauce is so delicious, it really makes Shack Shake unique. While the burgers are fantastic, I feel always let down by the fries. Yes, they look amazing but they don’t taste good. The staff is very friendly, you enter the restaurant through one door, order and then leave through another door to wait for the food. You get a device which shakes when your order is ready. What a clever idea!
