Shake Shack

I was running some errands and also had a meeting in central London – it was a fairly warm day so I thought simple top, leather shorts, converses for comfort and then smarten the whole thing up slightly with a slouchy blazer (I did say slightly)

This outfit was perfect for the day, I often miss-dress for the unpredictable weather but today went well! I think it was a good mix of looking put-together but also casual. You could easily replace the converse with black heels to make it into a nighttime look.

Here is the the exciting bit…I visited Shake Shack!

From what I know, Shake Shack is an American company and they are dotted all around the states, I had seen so many people talking and Instagramming about Shake shack since it landed in the UK that I had rather high expectations.

There are about 3 seating areas in the centre of covent garden surrounding it, so you go and order, you get a buzzy-thing, and when it buzzes you go and collect your food from the kitchen.

After a wait of about 5 minutes we scooped up our food, took some pictures and chowed down.

I have to say I was disappointed (The picture below was my very first bite), now, it LOOKS amazing! It might be that I just made the wrong choice on the menu but for such a small menu there shouldn’t really be anything abysmal on it (and for all the fuss).
I went for the Shack burger and cheesy fries. The burger was pretty much like a Macdonalds burger but a lot dryer and without a lot of the taste (and thats saying something).
The fries however were pretty good, obviously calorific but you’re not going to SS for a healthy meal! I much preferred them and if I do go again i’ll also try their concretes as i’ve heard they are good.

All in all…I wouldn’t rush there, I believe it is overhyped and the verdict from the Smoke shack (burger with applewood smoked bacon) was also that it was poor and without much flavour.

Good if you’re super hungry and need a quick fix but I MUCH prefer Five Guys! < (Link to my previous post on it)

I thought I would share anyway, I love to give my two cents!
