the thing about me, is i’m highly motivated by food. it’s kind of what gets me up in the morning (besides my 3 other little *loud* alarm clocks called my kids). but thinking about what i’m going to eat for breakfast, along with planning out my other meals (and snacks and treats and drinks) in my head is a big motivator for getting out of bed each day. i can find any excuse to take 2 different trains downtown for a particular bowl of rice pudding, and i’m willing to walk over a mile to get to a specific bagel shop. what would life even mean or be without food? i don’t ever want to know.
anyway, i read a few months back that shake shack was coming out with a chicken sandwich, and i basically flipped. and while they are still holding it hostage by currently only serving it in their brooklyn locations (OK, BROOKLYN! YOU WIN YOU WIN YOU WIN!) and won’t give any updates on when it’s making its manhattan debut (i keep asking), i figured FINE. we trek to brooklyn for our favorite ice cream and pizza and lemonade and even carrousel ride, what’s adding a chicken sandwich to the mix?
so we loaded up team davis and ventured out to brooklyn last week to give this sandwich a try. and yes, you guys, it’s everything it’s hyped up to be. everything you’d imagine a deep fried and crispy chicken sandwich to be, and yes, i might hate to admit it, but i’m drinking the brooklyn kool-aid hard after that one. can we find a way to go back again tomorrow for dinner?!
and what’s a trip to brooklyn (or anywhere?!) without a camera in tow. PHOTOS! below…
