The hamburger is commonly abbreviated ‘burger’ but is named after the German city of Hamburg. Both names do not derive from Ham, nor is it an ingredient. Hamburgers first appeared in the 19th or early 20th century. The modern Burger was a product of the culinary needs of a society rapidly changing due to industrialization, the emergence of the working class and middle class and the demand for mass-produced, affordable food that could be consumed outside of the home.
Considerable evidence suggests the USA was the first country where two slices of bread and a ground beef steak were combined into a ‘hamburger sandwich’ and sold. There is controversy over the origin of the hamburger because its two essential ingredients: bread and beef, had been prepared and consumed separately for many years in different countries before their combination. Shortly after its creation, the hamburger quickly included all of its currently typically characteristic trimmings, including onions, lettuce, and sliced pickles.
After various controversies in the 20th century, including a nutritional debate in the late 1990s, the Burger is now readily identified with the United States, and a particular style of cuisine, namely fast food. Along with fried chicken and apple pie, the hamburger has become a culinary icon in the United States.
There are end numbers of Burger stands in the United States that have become an inevitable part of Americans’ lives. From New York to Los Angeles, every street of the city is occupied with shacks and stands of hotdogs & burgers. Shake Shack originated from Medison Square in New York, and with continual success, it has travelled from the US to the World. Founded by New York restaurateur Danny Meyer and his Union Square Hospitality Group, Shake Shack is inspired by roadside stands that offer simple food like hamburgers, hot dogs, shakes and fries, but made with premium ingredients. The concept has resonated with consumers: as traditional fast-food chains like McDonald’s have stumbled, Shake Shack has notably thrived.
Each item in the Menu of Shake Shack is of premium quality and delectable. The satiation of meat or veggie patties, the crunch of fresh vegetables, and striking pickles make the Burger of Shake Shack the tempting and delicious treat for fast-food lovers. The oozing of melting cheese, the gratifying dips, and a mouthful of the bite of Burger cannot be missed in Shake Shack. The crinkle-cut fries with cheese compliments the Burgers.
The hot and cold beverages are delicious. The consistency, balanced sweetness, and right temperature of beverages reflects the due diligence of Management of Shake Shack. The Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is must-try; a slice of salt and perfect sweetness of the chocolate is praiseworthy. The concretes and shakes are equally consistent, and melt-in-mouth spreads.
The newly opened branch in Galleria mall, like other branches of Shake Shack, doesn’t disappoint with interiors and food. The enchanting vibe of Galleria mall complements the lively environment of Shake Shack. Shop, dine and create a memory with Shake Shack at Galleria Mall. Recommended!
