Shake shack upper westside NYC

After recommendations from friends, reading killer reviews and seeing mouth watering Instagram photos, I decided to pay a visit to well loved Shake Shack. One of the branches is located in the upper westside opposite the back of the American museum of natural history; a short walk from where I was staying in the big apple. 

Their have an extensive menu of intriguing burgers and frozen custard shakes; what more can any woman want on a rainy day to get some energy for hours of NYC shopping?! 
They even have a separate menu and outside patch of grass for your pampered pooches! 

I ordered the classic "Shackburger" a juicy angus beef burger which was slightly pink in the middle, cheese, tomato, lettuce and their classic "shacksauce" (which was DELICIOUS alone). 
I teamed that bad boy with a serving of their "Skin on" skinny fries which are cooked in 100% soybean oil and are the crispest, tastiest fries I have ever met. To top these beauties off; you can even order them to be smothered in their special blend of cheddar and American cheese sauce.. Are you drooling yet?

Shake shacks' frozen custards are reknowned to be super tasty and have an extensive flavour list, but I opted for a refreshing mix of their lemonade and ice tea mix, commonly known by shake shackers as a "Fifty fifty". Very good too.

This meal amounted to just over $6 I believe; 110% worth it and probably the best burger and fries I have encountered yet. 

If this post has got your stomach rumbling and you're stuck in the UK dreaming of tucking into this American treat; you're in luck as there is a branch of this restaurant in Covent Garden.. so if you're lucky enough to be nearby London, it's definitely worth a trip! 

Otherwise log onto their U.S website and tease your appetite and see what else this tasty place has to offer.
Much love
