So after much procrastination, we finally found the perfect excuse to go and try out the new Shake Shack restaurant in cardiff ‘s St. David shopping centre – having been recommended it numerous times by friends and family. It was the ideal evening as me and my girlfriend were attending a music gig by one of our friends that night, and needed to eat somewhere that was convenient and on the way.

After much debating, we decided to try out the Shake Shack for the first time. My girlfriend was somewhat reluctant and wanted to go to 5 Guys instead, but luckily, I managed to to convince her otherwise.

When we got there, the restaurant seemed a bit quiet, which contributed to a more persnoal experience between me and my partner. The atmosphere was very nice, bright and not too busy. After looking at the mouth watering menu, I decided to go with the single ShackMeister Burger with all the fillings, sided with a portion of Crinkle Cut Fries and a 500ml Cider to wash it down, while my other half opted for the Single ShackBurger, Crinkle Cut Fries and a Coke… Needless to say the food was amazing!

We paid a total of £27.90 and it was all very worth it! The burger was just too good – you could tell the meat was of high quality and cooked to perfection. That cider also washed it all down perfectly. Just thinking about it is making me hungry right now… and… is it better than 5 guys? Hell yes! The chips were non greasy, the burger had the right presentation and it was all delicious, as opposed to my experience in 5 Guys where the chips were super greasy and the burger looked like it had been sat on by an elephant… not cool guys! If you haven’t tried it yet, then I’m sorry to tell you but you don’t know what you’re missing… Get over there asap and be prepared to feast on some royal grub! I give it a 4.5 rating out of 5.
