Now that the weather is nicer, I can visit my favorite shack - Shake Shack in Madison Square Park.

My friend Cyn was visiting from L.A. last week and I took her there. It was a Thursday afternoon at 4pm and there was still a line, albeit only 15-20 minutes long. I've seen the line wrapped around the park, and that to me, is pure insanity, well at least they acknowledged it in this cute little baby onsie. Noteworthy though, is that there is a "shack cam" on their website that you use to monitor the line situation, brilliant!

My default order whenever I go to Shake Shack is the "Single Shack Burger" - it comes with American cheese, pretty fresh lettuce & tomatoes & the secret shack sauce. The portion is perfect for me, I usually also get the milkshake just because I am a glutton. The fries are pretty decent, and they also have special monthly custard flavors if you don't like the traditional vanilla, strawberry & chocolate flavors.

Cyn loved the burger, and was surprised they served decent quality wine (what can I say, New Yorkers love over-the-top things). Shake Shack is my favorite burger joint in the city, the burgers are incredibly juicy & the buns are soft & yummy, I also love the fact that it's in the park in the middle of New York City. They recently also opened an Upper West Side outpost, and get this, the new Mets Stadium, Citifield serves Shake Shack burgers too! But but but...what about the Yankee Stadium??

Address: Shake Shack, Madison Square Park (Madison Avenue & East 23rd Street)/366 Columbus Avenue (at 77th Street)/Citifield, Home of the New York Mets!
