A Taste of New York

My travel timeline has gone out of the window.  I had some other trips to write about but I just haven't gotten round to writing them up. Oops. Anyway, as this post is about food, it shot up my priority list.

Anyway, so back at the beginning of October my brother and I took my mum off to NYC for her 60th birthday. She'd never been before and we thought it would be fun to take her. Aren't we lovely children?

As well as taking in all the usual sights and tourist attractions - Empire State, Central Park, Rockerfeller Center, Brooklyn Bridge etc. We also took in the tastes that NYC had to offer. Here's a quick rundown of what we ate:

SHAKE SHACK
This was in fact our first meal in NYC and our first time at Shake Shack. Touted as one of the best burgers in NYC, if not the best. There are a few locations around the city, but we went to the one in Madison Square Park - the first Shake Shack - where the queue often wraps around the park.

What's so good about Shake Shack? Well let me tell you - it was one tasty burger! Ok, it wasn't mind-blowing but the gruyere stuffed portobello mushroom that sat atop the burger patty (Shake Stack burger) definitely made it something that I would want to eat again. If you like cheese - as there is a lot of cheese on this thing - you'll like this burger. The crinkle cut fries were also yum - golden brown, crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

If burgers are not your thing, they also did hotdogs and some sort of frozen custard dessert. Also, if you're in a hurry you could head to the 'B' queue to pick up drinks and desserts without having to wait in line behind all the carnivores.

Probably pricier than you're average fast food burger joint, but it's better than you're average fast food burger joint.

How To Make It In America

The USA sure know how to promote themselves and make you want to visit their land of excess.

You may remember this advert from a couple of years back, and I must say it worked on me. It made me want to visit America.



So now with a potential trip to the Land of the Free (NYC to be precise) coming up later on in the year, I am even more excited thanks to new HBO show How To Make It In America.  The opening credits are just soooooo coool.

If you haven't seen it, here you go...
