I finally got to the new(ish) Shake Shack in Covent Garden. It was delish, and just as good as Shake Shack in NYC.
Looks like a burger place – is it anything special?
It’s a place that, in both NYC and London, people line up for an hour to get a burger.
Fortunately, there was no wait yesterday. :->
You actually ate that? It’s not a display? Actual tomato slices – 2 of them! – and they’re RED! – and they have a measurable thickness dimension? And curly lettuce that’s not already wilted? Damn.
The fries, well, they look suspiciously edible as well… I guess they called them chips?
It was all indescribably tasty.
i had that on wednesday… it was yummy.
I know people who have deep fat fryers at home, but it’s a lot of effort to get chips. Better to buy them in. On the other hand, I enjoy constructing burgers…
That looks very yummy!
Now I want to go to Hot Doug’s in Chicago for some exotic encased meat in a bun and some of their duck-fat fries. (For those not in the know, Hot Doug’s has all different types of meat in sausage form, from venison to even more unusual meat. They only serve their duck-fat fries on Fridays and Saturdays, and they’re closed on Sundays to give their employees the day off. Not a religious thing, like Hobby Lobby, but just because Doug, the owner, believes in days off!)
Chicago’s best place for burgers is Kuma’s Corner, but that’s going through a big controversial shitstorm right now, due to the fact that they created a sandwich that was a tribute to a heavy metal band from Sweden that has its lead singer dressing up like a Roman Catholic bishop. The sandwich included an unconsecrated communion wafer. In such a Catholic city as Chicago, that’s guarateed to raise a ruckus!
