Just 10 days ago, the atrium of IFC was transformed into Madison Square Park, NYC for a pop up event.
Now Shake Shack is here to stay and serve burgers from the 1st of May on the 4th floor of the IFC.
The menu was really exciting because they have Frozen Custard (which is nothing like English custard.)
The custard is similar to ice-cream but with eggs added with a denser consistency.
As well as Frozen Custard, they are famous for Shakes and Burgers.
I tried Shack burger which has lettuce, tomato, 100% all-natural Angus beef patty and Shack sauce.
The green leaf lettuce they use is frilly and decorative which makes it instaworthy.
On my first bite, I appreciated the salt because it brought out the beef so well and the tomatoes and lettuce all blended in.
The secret also lies in the burger bun they use. The burgers are served on a non-GMO Martin’s Potato Roll which absorbs more sauce than wheat starch buns while it doesn't get soggy.
The crinkle cut fries were optional but the cheese sauce is a must because it is a blend of cheddar and American cheese sauce.
To finish, I had the milkshake which was so damn good because it was not cloyingly sweet.
Before leaving, the hand washing machine is the best thing and possibly the first burger joint place in Hong Kong to have it.
It really cleans the oil off and dispenses cleanser first, then water to rinse and finally a paper towel will pop out for you to wipe your hands dry.
I don't know if they have this on the HK menu, but they have ShackBurger® dog biscuits in the US!
To round it off, I am definitely coming again because HKD50 for a burger is quite reasonable and the size isn't too big to put you off it and at the end I know I can leave with clean grease free hands is fantastic.
