New York: Shake Shack
Before my sister and I headed out for the day, my friend looked up Shake Shack's custard calendar for us. We were very disappointed that we'd missed the afternoon tea flavor by a day, but my sister and I decided to go anyway:
Why does it always seem to rain when I'm in New York? Ugh. Is nice weather too much to ask for?
There's a small area for seats on the ground floor, but there's also a small rec room downstairs. Luckily we went a bit earlier than the usual lunch crowd and were able to score a table downstairs.
A Shack Stack is basically a cheeseburger plus a 'shroom burger. The 'shroom is the best part. It's a fried portobello mushroom stuffed with muenster and cheddar cheese. How great does that sound?
Even better, we found out that we could order yesterday's pint...which means AFTERNOON TEA CUSTARD:
Best custard ever!!! (Totally deserves the exclamation marks.) It was actually refreshing. The perfect palette cleanser after a greasy burger. It included shortbread chunks and tiny raisins, which contributed little bursts of tartness. My sister and I started our meal with the custard and ended it with the custard. So gooood!!
Shake Shack is a must when visiting New York. There's simply no excuse for missing out on a good burger when you're in town.
