Shake Shack
1111 Lincoln Rd
Miami Beach, FL 33139

What started off as a small to-go restaurant in New York has little shops popping up across the country including here in South Florida. However, their big name has not lessened the quality of their great fries. These tiny eateries have become so popular, that many have now installed “Shack Cams” for hungry eaters to check out the size of the line before you go—saving you loads of time. Braving the line is always worth the wait though, because at the end will be a scrumptious plate of steaming, crinkle cut fries, ready to be devoured. Served up plain or with cheese, the Shake Shack team has perfected the art of the fun shaped fry.

He would frequently be asked by Professors to translate for them when they had visiting English speaking professors. He was asked once by the garlic professor to translate when his American counterpart visited. They were out in the fields chomping on garlic and at the end of the day, they had a meal with a 10 different dishes featuring garlic. Dan was inspired by the experience and created the garlic and fry combination as a late night snack during his final exams in graduate school.
