Beloved burger chain Shake Shack is aiming to steal hearts once again with additions to the menu at all Upper East Side locations. On the new Smoke Shack burger, theyâ€™ve swapped lettuce and tomato for cherry pepper relish and applewood-smoked bacon.
Serious Eats offered their two cents on the new creation:
The bacon is good, but the relish is the real story here: It adds a sweet, slightly hot tang to the burger that a pickle might, only this relish is much more delicious than mere pickles. Not to downplay this bacon; it's good, smokey and cooked to the perfect crispiness...
After that description, who could resist? Hit up a Shake Shack on the Upper East Side soon and devour the burger with reckless abandon.
