My parents always said “everything gets mixed in the stomach anyways” when we tried to keep veggies as far away from the “good stuff” as we could. That very same feeling rings now more true than ever as Meat & Shake has made me appreciate the art that is having a Burger with a Milkshake as your drink. Dessert and main, combined.
No alcohol in the menu? No problem. You get deliciously creamy milkshakes, like the Oreo Milkshake I got early on, to help you bring the upcoming burger down your digestive system. I struggled not to drink it straight away. Go ahead and try to stop drinking a milkshake halfway. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
But thankfully, I did save some, as it would certainly be needed once the mighty Truffle Shuffle came along. A beauty of a burger if I say so myself, it sports truffle mayo, some great meat, gruyere cheese, and even more truffle action with a honey & onion truffle glaze. Before you start going “Truffle? Sounds like a poshburger to me”, you need to understand that truffles on a burger are a magical thing, that just needs to be tried to be understood. They just give it a special taste. Add some really nicely spiced fries, and it’s a perfect meal.
This is a great example of how a burger doesn’t have to be massive to be tasty, and how there are some great burgers to be had when venturing into “The Wasteland”, AKA “after zone 2 in London”. You just need to know where to look. And if you are looking, Meat & Shake is a good place to start. Specially if you want a milkshake with that piece of meat.
Slimy? So runny and gooey it puts bigger burgers to shame.
Satisfying? The Truffle Shuffle will most certainly shuffle your truffle. That’s meant to be a good thing!
