Yes indeedy, famous cult New York burger joint Shake Shack is coming to London's Covent Garden in mid 2013. 'Citing!
The UK's first Shake Shack will be located in the Market Building near the Royal Opera House and the menu will feature all your favourites plus some London-orientated fare. While I'm so delighted about the news, they really have missed a trick in not setting up camp here sooner while other fabulous burger joints like Patty & Bun have proliferated in the last couple of years. Saying that, Shake Shack was only established in 2004, so kudos to them for going global nine years form inception.

The Portobello Pearls wires have also been abuzz with the news that West Coast burger chain In-N-Out Burger are scouting for UK premises. After my long-suffering 'Bring In-N-Out to Britain' Facebook campaign, this is music to my ears and sweet sweet milkshakes and delicious burgers to my lips!
