The Yard Burger


Got an aaaabsolute treat for you. Now, if you haven’t already been to Shake Shack, WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING AT?! Get your butt down there right now! And whilst you’re there, grab one of THESE beauties!


For a limited time only The Yard Burger is available at Shake Shack. Lemme just talk you through what’s going on here. You got a soft, slightly sweet bun. Stuffed inside is a thick, juicy patty made from 100% Aberdeen Angus beef. Slammed on top of that is a huge slab of  Neal’s Yard Colton Basset Stilton and tangy house-made pickled red onions. It’s like the most luxurious cheese and onion experience EVER.

We went to the Covent Garden branch on one of this deliciously weather-ambivalent days we’re having at the moment to grab dinner before hitting a gig. When we arrived, we sat outside in the sunshine and people watched as we chowed down on the Yard Burger. We also ordered a traditional SmokeShack Burger, and some cheesy fries on the side, because well, it’s rude not to isn’t it?

After we’d eaten we were suddenly caught in the middle of THUNDEROUS rain, so ran to take cover inside, where we rounded everything off with a couple of concretes (ice-cream with stuff in it to you and me). To be honest, we could’ve had one and shared it because they are HUGE but eh, greedy. I had the Sticky Toffee, which is vanilla ice-cream with salted caramel sauce, chocolate chunks and chocolate toffee, and he had the Drury Lane Jam which has the same vanilla base, but is then topped with strawberry jam, banana and crumbly brown sugar biscuit.

Always a treat, always a pleasure. Get down to a Shake Shack and wrap  your chops round a Yard Burger STAT.


We were guests of Shake Shack, however as always if I hadn’t loved it I wouldn’t have written about it!
