But then I started looking through my photos of my trip to NYC and the photos of our meal/s at Shake Shack had my reliving the "best burger of my life" moment. So I'll begin my NYC posts with the best thing I ate...a simple, mind-blowing cheeseburger.
The first Shake Shack we visited was in Madison Square Park - an outdoor kiosk where you sit under ferry lights and eat your mind-blowing burgers whilst already plotting the next time you can get back to Shake Shack for your next burger hit. As it was pretty dark my photos didn't turn out all that well (it was also raining which made eating outdoors a bit of a challenge) - so I knew a daylight revisit was going to be in order.
Luckily for me there is another Shake Shack further uptown near Times Square where we happened to be one lunchtime.

There it is - the best cheeseburger of my life! Why is it the best cheeseburger I hear you ask?
Well (I'll try and keep this brief) for starters the the Shake Shack patty's are 100% ground beef and are ground fresh every day - no frozen yukky patty's here. This means the patty's are moist, totally delicious and flavoursome. Simply it tastes amazing. And the bun - oh the bun! The buns at Shake Shack are super soft and squishy and toasted to perfection. Oh, and look at that oozy, melty cheese...and the thick slice of pickle. Man oh man what I wouldn't give to be back in NYC right now biting into one of these babies.
|Cheeseburger - $4.00 for a single patty|
|Shakeburger - $4.50 for a single patty|
Of course you can't have a burger without a side of fries. I like the novelty factor of the crinkly fries here - though the fires aren't a patch on their world changing burgers.
|Fries - $2.65, crinkles included|
|Refreshments - the tall and the short.|
|Root Beer Float - $4.75|
|Concrete - $6.00|
|Ooo look, a yellow cab. How New York is that?|
