M Shack

Hey Loves!

It's not often I eat burgers so when I get in the mood for one, I want a burger and the fixings that will satisfy all of my taste buds!  After the rave reviews I heard from my boyfriend down to co-workers about how awesome  M shack is, I decided to give them a try.  This particular day I was doing a little Valentine's day shopping at the St. Johns Town Center  and decided to go to M Shack for lunch.  I got there around 11:50ish and within minutes the line was out the door.  I always look at that as being a good indicator for how good something must be.

BURGER:  I got the M burger that came with your regular toppings (American Cheese, Lettuce, tomato, pickles) and "Shack Sauce"  which tasted like a mixture of mayo and ketchup.  I added bacon to my burger because seriously...what's a burger without bacon!?!? :)  The burger was very good and cooked medium for some juiciness!  You must specify if you want it cooked other wise. 

FRIES:  If Truffle Parmesan anything is on a menu, 9 times out of 10, I'm probably gonna order it!   This is exactly what I did here.  I got the Truffle Parmesan fries and though they were tasty I was somewhat disappointed.  I'm not sure what I was expecting, but for $4.95 I was expecting the flavors to be meshed together a lot better.

SHAKE:  There's nothing better than a juicy burger and fries with a classic shake to wash it all down with.  I ordered the Strawberry shake and it was sooooo good!  The only bad thing is that I ordered a small instead of a large.  They use Blue Bell ice cream to make their shakes which is all I needed to hear!  I'm looking forward to trying the other flavors like Bananas Foster, Pecan Pie, and "Adults" Cookies and Cream which I hear has a little something something in it!

Overall, the M Shack was pretty good!  I'd go back for the shakes alone!  My only complaint would be the fries.  In my opinion, they weren't worth the 5 bucks I paid for them.  Other than that, they are good to go and I will certainly be back for more.

As always, thanks for stopping by my blog!  I truly appreciate all of my readers!  I'll be back soon with more goodies, stay tuned.

Hawkers Asian Street Fare (Jax)

Hey Dolls,

I always get super excited when I find out Jacksonville is getting new restaurants....or anything new for that matter so I was beyond thrilled when I was invited to the sneak peek opening of Hawkers Asian Street Fare last Friday night!  Hawkers is an Asian Tapas restaurant originally out of Orlando that has opened up a home in the 5 points district of Jacksonville!!!

The atmosphere is very hip and menu is massive! There were so many things I wanted to try but since I didn't have anyone to share with, (which is highly encouraged here),  I didn't want to look like a complete pig .......came close though lol.  
Here's what I got and no, I didn't eat all of it in one sitting!

Coconut Curry Shrimp:  These were pretty good!  I wasn't crazy about the curry dipping sauce so I asked for some thai chili sauce as a substitute and it complimented the shrimp well.

Asian Fried Green Beans:  I loved these!  It's the kind of dish that you find yourself dipping into repeatedly but there's no guilt because they're green beans.  The five spice flavoring is great!

Vegetarian Spring Rolls:  Whenever I eat anything Asian, I feel the need to order spring rolls or egg rolls.  These were ok.  The dipping sauce was missing a little something that I can't quite put my finger on that probably would've made them pop a little more.

Malaysian Satay Chicken Skewers:  These were pretty good.  I enjoyed the seasoning and eating them with the red onion and cucumber that garnished the plate..don't judge me lol!

Chow Fuun:  This fried rice came with shrimp and chicken and it was delicious!  Especially with a little Thai Chili Sauce drizzled over it!  YUM!

Honey Sriracha Wings:  These bad boys were spicy but I love a little kick to my food!   

As I was getting ready to leave, a really nice couple insisted that I try the Roti Canai, this Malaysian flat bread that resembles a tortilla and boy am I sooooooo happy I did!!!  If I had this for every meal of the day I would not complain.  It was that good.  It came with the curry dipping sauce but plain was just how I liked it!

I think Hawkers is a great addition to the 5 points area and I really enjoyed my dining experience!  The atmosphere was great, the servers and bartenders were awesome, the service was quick and efficient, and the food was wonderful!  I definitely look forward to visiting again!
