NYC Burger Institution

If you talk about a burger in New York one of the first things that comes to mind is Shake Shack. Currently 12 restaurants 7 of them in the Big Apple. Everything started in 2004 in Madison Square Park thanks to Danny Meyer. The place offer a 4oz proprietary blend of premium beef burger topped with tomato, lettuce, ShackSauce, and American cheese, on a grilled potato bun. Apart from that dogs, fries, and custards.

I went with The Chief, the queue wasn't so bad even though it was an amazing day. The queue is so long that you can see it from the website thanks to the Shack Cam to decide the best time to drop by.

I ordered the Shack Burger, fries, and a dog. The burger is perfect for purist, an American classic, the beef is spot on, the juices, the flavour, the balance, Shake is like the old testament for American burgers. The dog was good, nice flavour, good touch with the kraut, finally fries were perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside. 

The Order
A perfect place for a burger during a sunny day in the Big Apple.

Shake Shack reminds me the first episode of Seinfeld “The Seinfeld Chronicles” 

Jerry: Seems to me, that button is in the worst possible spot. The second button literally makes or breaks the shirt, look at it, it's too high! It's in no-man's land, you look like you live with your mother 
George: Are you through? 
Jerry: You do of course try on, when you buy? 
George: Yes, it was purple, I liked it, I don't actually recall considering the buttons 
Jerry: Oh, you don't recall? 
George: Uh, no, not at this time. 
Jerry: Well, senator, I just like to know, what you knew and when you knew it
