Woohoo, time for another New York post! We'll get to all of them... eventually.
First up, Shake Shack!
We arrived at Madison Square Park about 10 minutes before Shake Shack opened, as we feared a line-up. We were the second people in line.
While we waited, a celebrity sighting! Gilbert Gottfried and his family were there. Finally, Shake Shack opened and we placed our order.
The ShackBurger had "American cheese, lettuce, tomato and Shack sauce." We opted for the single patty version.
The bun was soft and had a yellowish tinge. According to their website, it's a potato bun. I really liked the bun, actually. The burger was pretty good. It was a good size (not gigantormous) with a fair price. The ingredients were good and the burger was made well. See, the patty was even a little pink, still.
Frozen Custard on Cone
before and after
Since they seemed to make a big deal out of their "frozen custards" -- that is, ice cream -- I decided to order one.
It was a hot day and as you can see, the frozen custard suffered. But, I did a little "food styling" -- that is, licking, haha -- and the cone looked much better. But, I still had to eat it pretty much before I finished my burger.
The frozen custard was all right: it was good, but nothing to shout about.
All in all, a nice meal.
(Actually, it was breakfast for us that day.)
