Hello Autumn! It's time for a good meal to greet the day amidst the beautiful autumn view along the street of Aoyama-Itchome. My pictures simply couldn't do any justice to the astonishing view.
For those of you who never heard of Shake Shack, it's originally opened as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park, New York City. Friends & family who know me so well probably aware of the fact that I'm obsessed with New York City, I've known Shake Shack and its remarks for quite some time. Imagine how happy I am to be informed that Shake Shack has opened its first branch in Tokyo. This is the day I've been waiting for!
Try to get here as quickly as you can because the queue can be insanely long during lunchtime. Shake Shack opens at 11 AM. We got there at 11.3o AM and waited for 20-30 minutes, it might be best to arrive a few minutes before they open. People could wait for an hour or more when it gets really crowded.
Before you scroll down we're very sorry for the tasty things you're about to see. I, myself experienced a major drooling when I uploaded these pictures, left me hanging with more craving for these mouthwatering burgers, cheesy fries, concrete and those milkshakes!
We ordered 2 Shack Burger, 2 Shroom Burger, 2 Smoke Shack, 1 Fries, 1 Cheesy Fries, 1 Caramel Milkshake, 1 Vanilla Milkshake, 1 Shack Attack (Concrete) and 1 Bottled Root Beer. Every bite is truly irresistible.
Shake Shack's burgers with yellow leaves scattered on the table creates the perfect Autumn sensation. The employee came by to clean up the leaves when I queued but my papa refused, he said it was for photo purposes, well done Papa!! Like father like daughter, indeed.
Our favorite has got to be the vegetarian burger! Shroom Burger is topped with a deep-fried breaded portobello mushroom stuffed with cheese. It was beyond expectation especially when that cheesy goodness melted in my mouth.
In Shake Shack, a dense ice cream made out of custard or frozen custard is simply called Concrete. We ordered Shake Attack, a chocolate custard with popcorn brownie from Dominique Ansel Bakery (NYC's bakery that first invented cronut) plus chocolate chunks & sprinkles. Something not to be missed in Shake Shack. Shake Shack x Dominique Ansel Bakery? Delicacy!!

One of our topmost favorite ramen!! Tenkaippin has a different taste compared to the other ramen we've tried. This is personally our favorite ramen by far. The soup is thick, rich and salty with a suitable amount of toppings, everything is as we like. Even if you've never heard of this ramen before, Tenkaippin is a must, must, must!!
