Shake Shack 10th Anniversary Special Burger: The Humm Burger (food)

That is a picture of a burger that my friends and many others waited over 6 hours for yesterday. All throughout this week, the original Shake Shack in Madison Square Park has been doing burger collaborations with famous chefs in celebration of its 10th anniversary. Yesterday's offering was the Humm Burger: Shack beef-blend gruyere cheeseburger topped with all-natural applewood smoked bacon, celery relish, Bibb lettuce, truffle mayo and shaved fresh black truffle.

Here's a closer look at the freshly shaved truffle.

So, what's the verdict? Honestly, I'm not sure any food is worth a 7 hour wait. But this was an absolutely delicious burger. The perfume of the truffle whet the appetite while the gruyere bacon cheeseburger provided an excellent base. What really made the burger for me was the celery relish, which worked beautifully to both highlight the strong ingredients and to make them work together in harmony. If they took out the truffle shavings to lower the cost and served the burger regularly, I'm sure there would still be a long line to get it.

I don't know how it tastes, but it sure looks good.
