I got in late Wednesday night so my first real meal on my vacation wasn't until the next day. I had heard so much about Shake Shack being the East Coast equivalent to our West Coast In-N-Out so I knew I had to try it. It definitely had a larger variety on the menu than my beloved In-N-Out, boasting Chicago style dogs, concretes (like DQ Blizzards), and a selection of alcohol. I had to go for the Shack Stack, a cheeseburger topped with a portobello mushroom that's stuffed with cheese, breaded and fried. The first bite is just an explosion of cheesy goodness that's one of the best burgers I've ever had.

Overall I had a great trip! I can see why NYC is such a hub for food lovers, there's literally EVERYTHING within blocks of each other. You can go from Little Italy and enjoying some NY style pizza hop on a subway and end up grabbing falafel or even walk across the street and grab some ramen. My trip was my first time on the East Coast but it definitely won't be my last. The way my friends talked about this city they now call home made me think that I need to head out to the heart of LA and explore more often so I too can have that passion for my city.
