Some might say its cruel to post about a foodie event after it’s finished, but in my defense, I’ve been really busy!
It’s well known that I’m a huge Shake Shack fan – it’s fast food with feeling. I’ve never made it to Munich for Oktoberfest – but luckily last week Shake shack brought it to Covent Garden. Apparently this is a regular fixture the other side of the pond – every year for two weeks they introduce a special menu based on Bavarian classics.
I sampled a good range of their specialities – a great burger with a German brat inside was a delicious experience, their curry wurst was a little light on curry but still fab – the star of the show was their Apfelstrudel milkshake. Thick, spicey and heavenly.
They also introduced a limited edition stein – sadly this is just a pint rather than the traditional litre, but their beer is still fantastic. Custom brewed by the Brooklyn beer company – Shackmeister ale is superb: light, refreshing and delicately hoppy.
