[Recap] Shake Shack x Momofuku Popup

Earlier last month, Shake Shack collaborated with Momofuku Daisho to bring their burgers and fries to Toronto for an one-day pop-up. The event took place on Wednesday, January 18th from 12:30 PM to 6:30 PM.. Torontonians had the opportunity to try their signature burger, ShakeBurgers along with some crinkle fries. I don't think Shake Shack will be coming to Toronto permanently anytime soon, but one can hope. 

This was my fourth time eating Shake Shack, as I have had it in NYC, London (UK), and Tokyo, Japan before. 

"We pride ourselves on sourcing incredible ingredients from like-minded ranchers, farmers, bakers and food purveyors. Our burgers are made with 100% all-natural Angus beef—vegetarian fed, humanely raised and source verified. The Chick’n Shack™ is 100% all-natural cage-free chicken. Our flat-top dogs? 100% all-natural Vienna beef. Our fries are crinkle cut Yukon potatoes, with zero artificial ingredients. And our vanilla and chocolate frozen custard recipes use only real sugar, no corn syrup and milk from dairy farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones." (source: ShakeShack)
