Shake Shack, Harvard Square. It’s really Winthrop Square, but it’s close enough.
It’s nice that Shake Shack staff does all the food styling for me. They’re picture perfect, literally…
Fries: while Alyk thought they were great, I remained unimpressed.
The Coke was pure ambrosia, but I don’t have any pics of the plain white cup. This sign will have to suffice. They mixed Cokes with enough syrup to rival the famed Southern-style soft drinks.
This picture is for the the corn dog we ordered. We both gave it a greasy thumbs-up. It’s a step up from regional fair dogs. Unfortunately, every picture I took looked way too pornographic to post here. Next time, I won’t ask her to hold it after dipping it in sauce.
Will I go back? I love it. I’ve been a few times already, and I hope to go many times in the future.
A couple of the most brilliant, beef-positive minds of our generation (and location) seem to agree: Shake Shack is a good thing. I agree with Pig Trip’s point about the fries being the achille’s heel, but for different reasons. He had Crinkle cut fries in New Haven, and I had something else in Harvard Square. I’m not a fry-nophile, so I can’t emote intelligently about the fries they serve. They were fries. I didn’t care for them. I ate them, and I wish I had more, but they was just a’ight. The burger was the star. Boston Burger Blog thought is was a solid burger, giving an 85 in his 0-to-100(and always spot-on) rating system. I concur, mother-scratchers!
One more point: despite the same of the place and the stupid title for this post, I’ve never had a shake there. Maybe next time.

There we go: Bibimbap and a pair of buns
All this time, I thought Fugu was nothing but some kind of seafood place. Apparently I missed the obvious: “FRESH ASIAN BITES” clearly painted above the driver’s door.
Fugu Truck, supporting my original (and incorrect!) fish truck theory
Fugu Truck menu. In general, the fewer the choices, the better the food. This place supports this theory. And, btw, it’s not my own, original theory. I heard it elsewhere, but it makes sense to me; fewer menu items means fewer item to focus on. Also, fewer items to mess up.
The steamed pork bun with sweet bean sauce. Look at that layer of skin and fat. Not for the fat-0-phobe, most def.
Will I go back? Without hesitation
All over Boston
LimeyG, hungry like the wolf.
Pour one out for LimeyG. Universal Hub passed along the sad news from Chowhound.
