This cute little burger place opened up in Sunset Park last year.
It’s diagonally across from Bob’s Market.
One day Maddie and I rode over there on my bike after school so she could get a bite.
We sat at a surfboard and M played with the vintage Mr. Potato Head.
We love the polynesian decor and shellacked surfboard tables!
It just occurred to me that you might be wondering what kind of burgers/food are served? Great question! It’s a Polynesian themed burger shack.
Check out the menu!
I tried the Hana slaw which was delicious!
M had a plain grass-fed burger with ketchup & pickles only. She will always eschew toppings in favor of letting the ingredients stand on their own. (I.e. she’s increasingly picky.)
She loved it!
Besides burgers, they have Portabella mushroom, veggie (rice, black bean & corn), salmon, chicken & turkey burgers. I am mostly vegetarian these days and will definitely try the veggie burger next time.
The friendliness of the women who run Shaka Shack makes you want to stay there all day. This is what I love about small neighborhood businesses and what separates them from chain restaurants.
Also, they have these:
