NYC's Shake Shack is COMING TO LONDON!


HELL YES! Shake Shack, one of NYC's best loved burger vendors since it first appeared in 2004, has announced that it's coming to London and will open its first UK premises in Covent Garden's historic Market Building in the summer next year...

"For years an enormous number of friends in London have asked us when we would bring our first restaurant to their home," said Danny Meyer, CEO of the Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) which owns Shake Shack. "We've looked high and wide for just the right time and spot, and at last we've found it. We're positively in love with London's thriving food culture, and are humbled and excited to bring Shake Shack to the UK."


All of which means that soon us London folk can tuck in to this (photo by Karen Day) whenever we like next year.

High fives all round!

Yeah can't wait for it! I used to live near Madison Sq. Park and Shake Shack was a regular haunt. Even the Shroom burger is to DIE for.

This is what we've all been so excited about for months...? THIS...? I'm seriously amazed. I mean, I expected it to live up to the hype at least a LITTLE. The burger was SO poor. I would place it maybe a little above something from McDonald's on a good day. Soggy, wet bun, the beef patty was thin and bland, the red pepper sauce wasn't good at all, the fries were dry, and as for the much-fabled Concretes... I paid £4 for a shake that would, honestly, be upstaged by a McFlurry. On top of this, a roped queueing area, and then being given a buzzer and having to go back to a serving hatch to pick up my crap food... Needless to say I won't be back. Although I may still be stupid enough to try Five Guys in the vain hope it's mildly better. Seriously, the existing London burger joints having nothing to worry about from this supposed 'real deal'
