Suddenly have an urge to eat a good burger, or spend a good time with your friends? Well then, Shake Shack is going to be your new go – to burger place.
Although the line is very long, due to Shake Shack’s recent debut in Meiji Jingu Gaien, Tokyo, every second of your growling stomach is worth the wait.
Even though Shake Shack is considered a fast food restaurant, their food quality is considerably high. Their famous “Shack Burger” is the most delicious combination of a bun, cheese, burger, lettuce, tomato, and their original “Shack Sauce”. Contrary to what you would expect a fast food burger to taste like, this burger is not overcooked or over greased; it is the Goldilocks burger.
Surrounded by stations, Aoyama-Itchome, Gaienmae, and Kokuritsu Kyougijou, Shake Shack is easily accessible within a five-minute walk.
Their menu offers a variety of unique foods or drinks such as the “Fifty/fifty”, which is a mixture of lemonade and iced tea, or a vegetarian burger with mushrooms substituted for meat, called the “Shroom Burger”. They also offer the “Shake of the Week”, including exotic flavours such as “The Pickled Ginger”. Shake Shack also has an option for customers to customize their own “Concretes” – which are their original ice creams. If you’re still not convinced, let me tell you, Shake Shack’s fries are one word: amazing. The outside is crunchy crust, but the inside is fluffy potato goodness.
The price of appetizers and sides range from 380 yen to 650 yen, and the burgers’ range from 580 yen to 1,230 yen. So it is definitely an affordable place to go to lunch with your friends or family.
Overall, Shake Shack has a really cozy and home – like atmosphere. The restaurant is decorated with lights and trees and really gives the feeling of having a picnic with your friends.
