British chef Sat Bains is making an exclusive burger for the Covent Garden Shake Shack in London

The burger will be served at the Shake Shack in Covent Garden on October 9.

British chef Sat Bains is serving something special at the Shake Shack in London’s Covent Garden on October 9.

The Michelin-star chef at Restaurant Sat Bains is making a burger called Major Oak, which he developed in collaboration with Shake Shack’s culinary director Mark Rosati in New York City.

The burger will be made with a Shake Shack Aberdeen Angus beef patty with shallots, Beauvale cheese from Cropwell Bishop Creamery in Nottingham, and a ketchup infused with wild Penny Bun mushrooms (mainly found in the UK), pine salt, smoked mayo, and a hint of charcoal from red oak trees.

As you would probably expect for a limited edition Shake Shack burger, the lines will probably be extremely long. When Shake Shack made frozen custards with Dominique Ansel cronuts at Madison Square Park, the line was crazy. The Brooklyn-exclusive ChickenShack sold out in two days and did not return until about a week later.

There will only be 500 burgers available at Covent Garden, so as always, you’ll probably want to line up early if you want to get your hands on a Major Oak.


Overjoyed at Burger Joys: Could This Be One of the Best Burgers in Hong Kong?

Burger Joys think they've cracked the burger code. We're inclined to agree. The burgers at Burger Joys are delicious.

We asked owner and founder of Burger Joys, Manu, what makes a great burger. He says it has to do with five primary factors:

At Burger Joys, the recipe is constructed with all these factors in mind. Upon a chance encounter with an American Michelin Star Chef one night out in Wanchai, Manu and this secret chef partner went about creating the best burger in Hong Kong. Keeping in mind all the factors that make up a well balanced burger with "wow factor" (known more commonly as umami in modern foodie terms), they add a little somethin' somethin' to their offerings by basting meat with a secret butter and using a savoury, tangy burger sauce with a touch of spice.

They don't think any other burger joint in Hong Kong comes close to their perfected burger making process.

Single burger at Burger Joys Hong Kong

As many in the Foodie team are American, we feel the need to disclose that we feel a deep affinity to anything that has even a vague connection to In-N-Out, Shake Shack, etc. Luckily when we went to Burger Joys we took bipartisan, non-American burger eaters who also confirmed the deliciousness of the burgers. Result, in other [British] words.

Even though this small city is in something of a burger glut at the moment, Burger Joys stands out because they have:

1. Kept things simple with only burgers and a few sides on the menu

2. Catered to vegetarians with a grilled veggie burger and mushroom patty burger (and no sign of a frozen, ambiguously beige 'soy' patty alternative)

3. Ensured an all day and night opening policy, seven days a week, which is highly convenient and very considerate of them.

Grilled Veggie Burger at Burger Joys Hong Kong

There are 10 types of burgers, from single burger ($98) to signature double cheeseburger ($138) to a fish ($78) veggie ($78) and mushroom cheese burger ($78).

Juicy, savoury, fresh and balanced are the meat burgers (go the signature double cheeseburger for the ultimate experience), and the mushroom cheese burger (which we liked more than the grilled vegetable burger, though are still very happy to see them both on the menu regardless), is a treat that the vegetarian will find satisfies the burger craving (we asked a vegetarian they confirmed).

The milkshakes are not so great and lacking somewhat in flavour (intense sweetness doesn't count), but that is made up for with excellent fries truffle, cheese, California garlic and sweet potato were all choice. The onion rings and tater tots are also awesome, because really, how hard is it to screw up a tater tot.

Overall:

Pricey burgers that are worth the tag. Open 24/7 is a huge plus for us, because you know this is perfect 2am food. Knowing that owner Manu is such a good guy who genuinely wants the world to eat better burgers helps us sleep well at night too, and we don't feel it will be too long before Burger Joys is a Wanchai institution.
