25% Off At Shake Shack For A Limited Time

shake shack

Earlier in 2017 I wrote about a way to get a free burger from Shake Shack when you download their app on iOS. Another offer came out early in the summer for both iOS and Android users although it was not quite as good as the initial Shake Shack app offer.

Kim and I both downloaded the Shake Shack app and got our free burgers but haven’t used the app since. Continue reading 25% Off At Shake Shack For A Limited Time

What Did We Try At McDonald’s Fiji?

McDonalds Fiji

During our trip to the Pacific, Fiji has been a very important country for the Michael W Travels family. Flights to most of the countries that we’re visiting tend to go through the country.

On our way from the airport to our first hotel, we drove past a Burger King so I figured that there had to be a McDonald’s close by.

Since I had to see what special items might be on the McDonalds Fiji menu, we took a 5 minute taxi ride there for dinner. Continue reading What Did We Try At McDonald’s Fiji?

Shake Shack South Korea, Just About As Good As Shacks in the US!

The Michael W Travels family loves burgers and our favorite fast-casual style burger is served at Shake Shack.

Shake Shack began as a small cart in Madison Square Park in NYC and slowly grew as a chain to what it is today. The company is now listed on the New York Stock Exchange and has a presence in 18 states and Washington, D.C. There are also international locations in 11 countries.

A Long Junk-Foodie Layover in Los Angeles

On the way to the Pacific, the Michael W Travels family had a long layover in Los Angeles. During our time we had to deal with The Most Expensive Luggage Storage Ever.

I booked our flights from JFK to LAX and LAX to NAN using points on different airlines.  We chose  to have the long layover in Los Angeles since we didn’t want to take a chance on missing our international flight.  We initially figured that it would be a good opportunity to wander around LA.

However, in LA things are really spread out, Uber rides can be pricey and traffic could be a real pain. Continue reading A Long Junk-Foodie Layover in Los Angeles

Review: Limited-Time OddFellows Ice Cream Carnival in NYC

Oddfellows Ice Cream

If you enjoy ice cream and live in or are visiting NYC, you might have a problem. With so many great options, it might be hard to decide where to go for your frozen dessert fill.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but some of our top picks  (in no particular order) are Ample Hills, Blue Marble, Davey’s, Van Leeuwen and OddFellows Ice Cream. You also can’t go wrong by ordering a cone from a Mister Softee truck!

Many of the shops mentioned have interesting and creative flavors with OddFellows Ice Cream probably making some of the oddest. Continue reading Review: Limited-Time OddFellows Ice Cream Carnival in NYC

Get FREE Shake Shack Fries w/ $5 Purchase!

Shake Shack

Back in January, my favorite fast- casual restaurant, Shake Shack had an offer for first time app users.

The offer was good for a free single burger. While the offer was a sweet deal, it was only good for those of us with iPhones as the app was only available on iOS.

Well now there’s some good news for those of you with Android devices (and those with iPhone’s who’ve never used the app). Continue reading Get FREE Shake Shack Fries w/ $5 Purchase!

McDonald’s Has A Despicable Me Menu In This Country

Despicable Me

Despicable Me 3 comes out today, June 30. While this might not be of interest to most of you, it is exciting to Lucas since he’s a big fan. I promised Lucas that I’d take him to see the movie one day so that means I’ll most likely get a decent nap!

For most of the Despicable Me movies, McDonald’s has done a tie-in in the form of a Happy Meal toy. (Lucas has a bunch of them.) Continue reading McDonald’s Has A Despicable Me Menu In This Country

You NEED To Try The Big Macher Burger at Mile End Deli

Mile End Deli

One of my favorite foods is the hamburger. This should come as no surprise considering how many burger reviews I’ve written here at Michael W Travels.

What I love about burgers is that they can come in so many different varieties. The bun, meat, cheese and other topping all can vary, making for lots of unique kinds of burgers!

You wouldn’t expect to find an amazing burger at a Jewish- style deli, but you can get a really great burger at Mile End Deli in Brooklyn, NY. Continue reading You NEED To Try The Big Macher Burger at Mile End Deli

When I travel to new places I love checking out McDonald’s to see what local menu items might be offered.

McD’s also appeals to Lucas, mainly for the toy but it also offers a taste of home (we rarely eat there at home) if/ when you get tired of the local food.

Over the years, I’ve written about McDonalds in we visited in: Continue reading McDonald’s Hong Kong Serves Mac ‘N Cheese Sandwiches!
