Shake ‘Em Buns


Shake ’em Buns was one of the sponsors for our Sexy Xmas party last week – amidst all the chocolate covered strawberries and cupcakes, we knew we needed something super-filling to keep the guys happy. The mini sliders they provided were perfect bite-sized mouthfuls of deliciousness, and provided a great foundation for all the vodka-drinking that went on that night!Maura and I stopped in to Shake ’em Buns’ cafe on the corner of Wellington Street and Pottinger Street last week to try out some items from the menu for ourselves. We’d been running around all morning on an empty stomach and were starting to drool at the idea of a burger lunch. The little cafe is decorated in an American diner-style, with a couple of cosy booths and a row of high stools perched by the window so you can munch happily while watching people make their precarious way down Pottinger. The menu and style of the restaurant is full of funny names (sample burger names are “Missionary”, “Gang Bang” and “Cushin’ for the Pushin’), signs and humour – upbeat tunes boom out of the sound system, and you can feel your mood get better with every minute inside.

I ordered the Debbie Does Dallas burger, which is essentially a cheeseburger topped with bacon, fried onions and barbeque sauce. It’s an oozing, juicy dream of a burger which packs a huge flavour punch. It’s not the tidiest thing to eat, so maybe not one to choose if you’re on a date. I wolfed it down in about ten seconds flat – you can probably see from my greedy grin in the picture above that it wasn’t going to last long! Maura ordered a basket of sliders, which come in several different combos so are great if you can’t make up your mind as to what you’d like to try.

There also aren’t just burgers on the menu – my husband is OBSESSED with their fried mozzarella sticks, and if you’re having a “trying to be healthy” day, I recommend the chicken salad, which unusually for a burger joint actually has very fresh salad.

We’ll definitely be stopping into Shake ’em Buns again soon to satisfy our burger cravings!
