Disappointing burger experience: Restaurant Shake Shack (1. November 2017)

| March 8, 2018 | 0 Comments

The night before someone had mentioned how amazing the burgers in ‘Shake Shack’ are so I was ready to give it a try. Now, what I can definitely say is ‘disappointment’. Maybe expectation building went a bit over the top, possible! But what you pay for and what you get is quite a difference. I went for the “Double SmokeShack (cheeseburger topped with hickory smoked veal strips, spicy chopped cherry pepper and ShakeSauce)” (5.75 BHD) with “loaded fries (veal bacon bits and cheese sauce)” (3.00 BHD) accompanied by a “lemonade” (1.50 BHD). First of all, the right word to describe this meal is ‘heavy’. I definitely felt bloated right after until the very next day. The burger itself isn’t bad really, as the bacon is fine, the patties are okay (a bit too thin for my taste) but the bread is really not great. It is somewhat like one of these super fluffy breads not tasting like anything. Quite horrible to be honest. The cheese applied on the fries is really not tasting very ‘natural’.

So, all in all, I was absolutely not impressed by ShakeShack. Not only because of the elements described above but also because you end up paying quite a lot for a mediocre meal. So, while this is okay if it would cost like a third of the current price, it is definitely not okay for that price. My take away definitely is – avoid ShakeShack.
