Shake Shack, perhaps the best burger chain in the world and if you disagree you probably need to see if you can get a new tongue, just announced their first ever chicken sandwich, a fried chicken sandwich that looks like the Platonic ideal of what a fried chicken sandwich should look like (if you like mayo, that is). Can this sandwich make it the best fried chicken sandwich chain too?
The fried chicken looks crispy and crunchy in all the right ways and I can already imagine the juiciness of the meat. The pickles look absolutely dynamite and the buttermilk herb mayo must be addicting if it’s used so liberally. It’s available starting today for a limited time only at Shake Shack’s Brooklyn locations.
Here are a few pictures of the sandwich in the wild:
