We had the wonderful opportunity of stopping by the newly revamped Shake Shack, which is now licensed under Ruby’s. It is located along Pacific Coast Highway, between Laguna Beach and Corona Del Mar. This space overlooks the Pacific Ocean, and we could have not been there on a better day. The view itself will take your breath away. You are automatically drawn to this little eatery by the fresh yellow paint, and white umbrella lined eating area. Next comes the menu. Being that the word shake is in the name, that was the first food item that came into consideration.
I grew up going to Ruby’s Diner, and the shakes were always something that I had to order. These shakes are so creamy and luscious. We ordered the Dark Chocolate, being that Dark Chocolate is one of my most favorite sweets in the world. The shake is thick, so the spoon was a better option than the straw, and I just think a better option over all. Every bite is so creamy and full of flavor, and I can’t wait to get back and try more of the flavors that they have to offer.
Burgers, fries, and shakes, these just go hand in hand. My husband ordered the Classic Cheeseburger. Even though this burger came with two patties, it was so easy to handle. This was the first thing that I noticed about their burgers. It is the perfect size, and not overwhelming whatsoever. The buns have a spongelike and light texture, which is the perfect compliment next to the juicy meat and fresh garnishes.
I took into consideration that we had a full day of food ahead of us, so I went ahead and ordered the GoFit Burger. This is hands down the best vegetarian patty that I have ever had. You get the texture of a beef patty, but all of the health benefits of a vegetarian patty. I did live a vegetarian lifestyle a few years back, and I have tasted all types of both veggie and soy patties. This absolutely tops the list. You get so much flavor, and you also don’t leave feeling as guilty or weighed down. Now, I say as guilty, because of course the burger shares a plate with french fries. These french fries have the perfect amount of salt and crunchy bite to them. Whether you are vegetarian, or just leading a healthy lifestyle, you definitely have to try this GoFit Burger.
I want to give a special thanks to my Dad’s friend Roy. He was so kind to invite us out to lunch on this more than gorgeous day. Next time you find yourself driving down Pacific Coast Highway, I highly recommend that you make a stop at the Ruby’s Shake Shack. Sit back enjoy the delcious food and stunning views.
