Shake Shack, Covent Garden

Cheeseburger from Shake Shack, London

Cheeseburger with Shack sauce (£5)

I try so hard to avoid writing the same thing in every review, especially when it comes to burgers, which are juicy and meaty all too often. Not attributes I should complain about, of course, and no need to worry here, because this one is none of the food platitudes. For all its terrifyingly Crayola colours and ten-minute-‘freshly made’-wait, this burger didn’t really taste of anything. A first bite was promising, with all the right textures and densities, but by halfway I’d realised that the only flavour in any of its rainbow layers was ‘savoury’. Well, Shake Shack, at least you’re different, but I’m pretty sure even McDonalds would get at least one cliché.
