Shake Shack – Hell’s Kitchen, NYC

Shake Shack
Hell’s Kitchen, NYC

No trip to NYC is complete without shake shack.

Just as I was leaving I stopped of to make it my last meal in the great city they’ve released a new smoke shack burger as well as caramelised onion and bacon bits as a topping. I struggled with my inner fat self the whole way up to the counter, and for those of you who’ve been know that is a fairly long time.

I decided the best thing to do would be to combine everything; a double patty mutant shack; a double smoke shack style with lettuce, tomato, pickles and the caramelised onions and bacon bits.


It came out later in all it’s glory and was fresh and delicious, there wasn’t enough shack sauce so I added a little ketchup to compliment.


Shake Shack is 2-1 on my 3 trips, and only continues to improve. It’s not overly fast but it hits the spot when the cravings hit.

Pies ‘N’ Thighs – Williamsburg, NYC

Pies ‘N’ Thighs
Williamsburg, NYC

I went to Williamsburg on my last day in NYC and I was expecting some great fried chicken from Pies ‘N’ Thighs, and from what I had heard great things in general.


I ordered the chicken box, 3 pieces, cornbread, mac n cheese and I got a side of smoked pork collard greens.


The mac n cheese was okay, a sufficient side, the collard greens were great, the addition of hot sauce and pork was outstanding, I thoroughly enjoyed them. The chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy in the inside,  but I just didn’t get anything special from it.


Maybe it was the atmosphere or the lack of service or the long wait, whatever if was the chicken was good but just left me feeling unsatisfied.
