Shake Shack had teamed up with chef Sat Bains in order to bring something extraordinary to Covent Garden for ONE day only. Yes, I got the chance to taste of the the exclusive burgers made by chef Sat Bains – one of five hundred may I add.
I’ve never been to Shake Shack before, despite hearing so much about it over social media. I went to New York this summer and all my American friends asked me if I had tried Shake Shack yet? I said that I hadn’t still and neither did I get the chance to try it in NYC either… I vowed that I would go when I returned to London and on my return I was invited to try the Major Oak burger, killing two birds with one stone. Perfect!
Not knowing what to expect from a Shake Shack burger nor having tried of any of Sat Bains’ dishes before, I was excited to attend because I just knew I was going to be in for a treat.
Arriving to the tables reserved specifically for bloggers and press, I felt like a very important person, especially as tourists and nearby office workers overlooked to see what all the fuss was about.
A lovely waiter came over and took our order. Sofia opted for the caramel milkshake and I went for the homemade lemonade. It was a good opportunity for Sofia and I to catch up, since university was all go for the past couple of weeks, we haven’t really had a chance to talk much.
Before I knew it, our food had arrived! Squealing with excitement, I was so ready to taste Sat Bains masterpiece.
I love absolutely love crinkled chips, so you can tell I was overjoyed to see the sight of this yummy potato goodness. Sofia’s caramel milkshake was heavenly, totally guilty but so worth it. A decent sweetness without it being sickly, along with a drinkable consistency. I am all about American style still lemonade and it completely lived up to it, I would easily go back to Shake Shack just for their lemonade!
Now for this Major Oak beauty, boasting Shake Shack’s juicy Angus beef patty, topped with fresh shallots, a slice of creamy blue cheese with a touch of pine, with a drop of seasonal ketchup made from Penny Bun mushrooms and charcoal smoked mayo.
I’m not normally a huge blue cheese fan, but the all the flavours together in the burger just went so well together. Utterly delicious! I think Sofia agrees too… indulging into it and loving it.
Thanks to Shake Shack and Sat Bains for having and feeding us delicious burgers on my first ever Shake Shack experience.
Until next time…
