I see no reason why I can't concurrently post about meals that I ate in the US, and stuff I ate in Taiwan. I'm a big boy... I can handle that much! I think...? Anyway, that's not the point. I used to hate Shake Shack. Not because I thought it tasted bad or anything, in fact I thought it was too good. With one of the best (imho) burgers in the city, you can't help but feel jipped when you see the size of their burgers. No, what I hated about Shake Shack were their portions. It's like forbidden fruit or something, you show me how incredible beef, cheese, and bread can taste, but not enough to satisfy my hunger? That's just straight evil.
Now I know what you're thinking. Why not just buy more? Well, I'm also not made of money, and if you haven't been to the Shack yet, their price to volume ratio isn't exactly terrific. Still, like a fly to poo (yeah I went there), I just can't help but be drawn in by the burgers there. Seriously, they're the shit.
I mean... come on. JUST LOOK AT THAT SPILLAGE. For $8.75, I can't legitimately say it's cheap or anything, but at least it's a big burger. On top of the normal cheeseburger, they throw a giant ball of fried mushroom stuffed with cheese. That's twice the amount of baller, with the added bonus of being able to say you ate healthy thrown in. Sort of (I don't know how okay you are with lying to yourself). I don't know if this is my favorite burger of all eternity, but I would at least say it deserves to sneak into the conversation. In all seriousness, it's really that good.
For all the people who complain about taking photos of bitten burgers. Sorry. I forgot. I was too focused on how to compress the behemoth without it looking stupid.
