Squaremeal Review of Shake Shack Covent Garden ?

Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack has been wowing them stateside since 2004, and now the New York restaurateur has brought his modern-day ‘roadside burger stand’ to London. Set in Covent Garden’s tourist honeypot, the new venture features eco-friendly dining areas within the South Hall of the Market Building – an enticing draw for locals and American expats who are lured by a self-service menu of all-natural burgers, flat-top hot dogs and that US classic ‘frozen custard’. Native sourcing and ingredients from London’s artisan suppliers play their part in recreating the transatlantic repertoire – think layered burgers with soft buns and lashings of sauce, plus a host of other crowd-pleasing favourites partnered by crinkle-cut Yukon fries slathered in nacho-style cheese sauce. As for drinks, expect shakes, iced teas, fountain sodas, root beers and wines, served by staff who dole out Yankee hospitality with a big fat smile.

Shake Shack.Tried their Brand for the first time

by   gold reviewer (40)

Feb 2017

After hearing about The Coventry Street branch on here I was passing the new Nova Mall in Victoria yesterday and spotted a brand new Shake Shack (same chain)there.That new one is not listed yet on Square Meal I don't think so this applies to the SS format in general based on The Victoria experience. OK so its very slick in a huge hi tech new building.All light & glass.You get a buzzer which flashes when your meal is ready to collect though they offer the option to serve too. Staff friendly...

Calm down, it's only fast food

by   (4)

Jul 2013

This is NOT the Second Coming, whatever would be for bloggers and twitterati may think. I would possibly define it as a ‘once in lifetime’ experience, but only because having been there and tried it I am now satisfied that while it's a reasonable fast food joint, it's not worth a second visit. All pretty bland, and while they make a big fuss about the provenance of the ingredients, there's more than a hint of the emperor's new clothes about it. I'd like to single out the cheesy fries though. The...

Shaking up Covent Garden

by   bronze reviewer (8)

Jul 2013

Editor's pick The opening of Shake Shack has been much anticipated with the well traveled amount the twitterati at fever pitch drooling at the prospect of not only their burgers but their infamous shakes and concretes, a dense frozen custard mixed at high speed with fine add ins from St.John's and Paul.a.Young's chocolates. Nearly every one I've met who has been to their NYC branch goes into long lengths describing how good it is. It's no mean feat they've managed to mix great fast food with a classy joint that...

    Everyone knows Shake Shack, everyone’s seen Shake Shack, everyone’s probably eaten at Shake Shack. On several occasions it has been my choice of food for working lunches with Pete, Grace and Daisy. Shake Shack opened in 2004, and went big in America. 34 locations across the US, with an anticipated IPO of $10 million back in Dec 2014, it sure is worth that much. Centrally located in Covent Garden in the main square, groups of people come flocking daily to grab a quick bite of the antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers. The heavy accentuation on how only natural and premium ingredients are used, makes this the place to...

    The Mayfairy :: Review: Shake Shack in Covent Garden | The Mayfairy

    The other day I was given a mission: go to Shake Shack with a friend, gorge yourself on burgers and fries, then learn what a ‘concrete’ is and eat a special version infused with Easter eggs. How could I resist? That’s my kind of mission! I took my friend Julie along as we were well overdue a catch up and she can demolish a good burger with the best of them.

    We met the lovely Chris (the manager) outside the restaurant and he gave us menus to browse while he located a suitable seating area for us. I chose the single SmokeShack cheeseburger topped with British fine range Wiltshire cure smoked bacon, chopped...

    We Love Food, It :: The ShackMeister burger at Shake Shack | 24, Market Building, The Piazza, Covent Garden, London WC2E 8RD | We Love Food, It's All We Eat

    We never need an excuse to visit Shake Shack in Covent Garden. But when we found out The ShackMeister was making its UK debut we were there in a flash. The ShackMeister is basically their classic cheeseburger topped with crispy ShackMeister ale marinated shallots and finished off with a dollop of their tangy secret recipe ShackSauce.

    The shallots are chopped, soaked in Shake Shack’s very own ShackMeister ale for 24 hours and then deep-fried to crispy perfection. This pile of crunchy shallots adds texture to the cheese burger whilst the flavour of the ale creeps through, but be warned this burger is seriously...
