Droolius’ Top 7 Favorites of January 2016

I wanted to start a new blog series this year and thought that a monthly Top 7 Favorites of what I ate was a good start. Why Top 7? Mainly because it’s hard to just choose my favorite 5 dishes for the month and 10 dishes might be too much. So, Top 7 it is! This month I spent the entire time in Atlanta, the city where I’m working now. I’ve been going back and forth between Orlando and Atlanta in the past few months, so I’m getting to explore food in both cities. Here’s my favorite dishes from January, in the order of when the food was eaten, not by rank.   click to enlarge Cheeseburger and fries at Holeman and Finch Public House, Atlanta, GA This was my first time having the infamous Holeman and Finch cheeseburger at the actual restaurant and it was very impressive. I ate it first at Burger Bash during South Beach Wine & Food Festival in 2014, then at H&F Burger at Ponce City Market last year. Both …

Shake Shack Debuts The Chick’n Shack Sandwich Today Nationwide

Exciting news from ShakeShack today as they are debuting their new chicken sandwich and it’s called the Chick’n Shack. The Chick’n Shack is a crispy chicken breast (100% all-natural and antibiotic-free) with lettuce, pickles, buttermilk herb mayo (chives, parsley and thyme) and served on a potato roll.   (Image courtesy of Shake Shack) The description sounds so good and I’m looking forward to trying it. I remember seeing this on social media last summer being served at their Brooklyn locations and wondered if and when it would be released to the rest of us.

Droolius.com back up and running…

For a little over a week Droolius.com has been down due to database issues in WordPress. There were issues I could not fix because I was busy at work (started a new job in the social media marketing industry recently) and I had very little time to diagnose the problem. After some trial and error, I finally found a fix this evening! So, the website is back up and lots of content to post from food events to restaurant discoveries are coming up. For now, enjoy this photo I took at lunch today. It’s the Shack Stack burger from Shake Shack in Winter Park, FL. You gotta love Florida winter days with bright sunshine and blue sky.   (click image to enlarge) Shack Stack burger at Shake Shack Winter Park – photo taken with iPhone 5s   Words and photos by Julius Mayo Jr. Content and photos © Droolius.com 2015 

Kicking Off My Labor Day Weekend With The Shack Corn Dog At Shake Shack!

The holiday weekend is here and I finally get to try the Shack Corn Dog that I see pop up on the Shake Shack menu on every Labor Day Weekend. It’s available starting today, Friday until Monday, and only a seasonal special. I’ve been eyeing this corn dog for a while now and never seem to make it to a Shake Shack in time. Luckily there is a fairly new Shake Shack in the Orlando area and I stopped in with a friend today and we both ordered a Shack Corn Dog each.   (click image to enlarge) This is how you kick off a Labor Day Weekend!

My First Shake Shack Experience in 2010 #ThowbackThursday

I thought I’d share my first experience at Shake Shack as a “Throwback Thursday” post since today marks the 10 year Anniversary for Shake Shack as a company. The “Decade of Shack” celebration has been going on all week with chef collaboration burgers, along with a special event today at the original Madison Square Park location with several bands playing live music, Dominique Ansel birthday cake, Brooklyn Brewery Shack X IPA beer and a “pay what you’d like” Hot Dog Cart. These guys know how to throw a party! All of this week I have been wishing I could be in NYC eating all of those specialty burgers. So about my first Shake Shack experience, it was back on July 31, 2010 in the South Beach location in Miami’s Lincoln Road district. I was with my food partner OD and we were excited to try this burger spot our friends kept telling us about. On this first trip to Shake Shack I went basic and ordered a ShackBurger, cheese fries, Shack-cago Dog, Peanut butter Shake …

Droolius’ Top 25 Food & Most Memorable Meals in 2013

The year 2013 was a time of many great food discoveries in various cities. My Top 25 of 2013 is a combination of memorable food and complete meals, not just a specific dish. Many times there were multiple dishes that stood out and hard just to pick one favorite. Last year I wrote my Top 25 Most Memorable Food in 2012 based on a top food or specific dish. This year’s top list has more meals experienced while traveling to various cities around North America. It was my return visits to Chicago, Los Angeles and Las Vegas after a hiatus of several years and first time trips to Mexico and Canada. I frequented many restaurants around Florida and had my yearly food trip to NYC. It was difficult to condense everything into a Top 25 list, but here it is. Note: Photos are in the order of when the food was eaten, not by ranking.   (click image to enlarge) 1.
