Review : Shake Shack Cardiff

18th June 2016

Spencer and I recently went along to Shake Shack Cardiff to trial their limited edition Yard burger*, the burger will be available in all UK branches from 1st – 22nd June 2016. We had visited Shake Shack once before for the launch event and were keen to go again.

The Yard burger features 100% Aberdeen Angus beef topped with Neal’s Yard Colston Basset Stilton and house-made pickled red onions and it is amazing. The sweetness of the pickled red onions and the powerful flavour of the stilton create a flavour sensation. This combined with the juicy, perfectly cooked burger is a winner.

We both decided to double our burgers up (£10.50) and order some cheesy fries (£4) and a large strawberry lemonade (£3.25) to go with them. The cheesy fries at Shake Shack are amazing, the gooey cheese sauce is well worth the extra £1.

I’m not quite sure how but we somehow managed to fit in puddings in the form of concretes! Concretes are frozen custard ice-cream blended with mix ins. Spencer opted for the double Cardiff Crunch-Stellation (£7.50) which includes malt, Paul A Young chocolate chunks and chocolate toffee; I opted for the double Welsh Cake Jam (£7.50) which includes a Welsh cake from Fabulous Welsh cakes and strawberry jam. I’m usually a chocolate person and will almost always go for the chocolate pudding, but this time I surprised myself by not only ordering something other than chocolate but actually preferring it to the chocolate version!

Both Spencer and I had a great time at Shake Shack Cardiff and highly recommend it. Shake Shack is expensive for a burger joint, but it isn’t just a any old burger joint. The food is delicious and filling, the staff were fab and the venue has a very hip feel to it.
