Why: A burger battle is about to break out in London (Covent Garden more precisely) with the opening of two of the most successful and respected companies in the business.
Five Guys: “The Best $5 Burger A Man Can Eat”
. Five Guys was The Place to get a fresh, juicy burger with all the toppings you could stuff between fresh-baked buns. We use only fresh ground beef.
Five Guys, America's fastest growing restaurant chain, which counts Barack Obama as a fan and is said to have half the market for posh burgers, opens its first non-US outlet on Thursday in Covent Garden. And a day later New York's Shake Shack will make its London debut four minutes' walk away.
From the customer’s point of view, one of the pleasures of Five Guys is that there is no charge for the toppings. There are about 15 and you can have as many as you want.
Shake Shack is part of Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG),
which includes many of New York City’s most celebrated restaurants: Union Square
Cafe, Gramercy Tavern, Blue Smoke, among others
In the first-ever UK Shack, the menu will showcase all the Shack classics, as well as a selection of location-specific items - burgers, hot dogs, milkshakes and ice creams.
Born in New York City’s Madison Square Park in 2004, Shake Shack is a critically
acclaimed, modern day American “roadside” burger stand known for its burgers, flattop dogs, frozen custard, beer, wine and more.
The menu will feature all the Shake Shack favourites including the signature ShackBurger®, SmokeShack™, ‘Shroom Burger and Shack-cago Dog. The
majority of ingredients and menu items are UK-sourced. The burgers will be made
with freshly ground 100% Scottish Aberdeen Angus beef. ShackMeister Ale® will
be on tap, a beer designed to complement the ShackBurger that is brewed just for
Shake Shack by Brooklyn Brewery in New York City.
Shake Shack’s frozen custard—dense, rich and creamy ice cream spun fresh
daily—will be featured in shakes and concretes (frozen custard blended at high
speed with mix-ins).
The concretes are made with locally sourced baked goods and
chocolate mix-ins from London partners St. JOHN Bakery and paul.a.young.
The Covent Garden-specific concretes include Union Shack (chocolate custard, St.
JOHN Bakery chocolate hazelnut brownie, fudge sauce, paul.a.young chocolate
chunks and sea salt)
