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.

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.

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
OK, so if you’re making a special trip to Peter Luger, I know you’ll most likely want to try their famous steak (and I don’t blame you) but hear me out on this one…
Peter Luger is considered by many to be the best steakhouse in New York City. If you want to get in, odds are pretty high that you’ll need a reservation which needs to be made a month in advance.
I’ve had steak at Peter Luger and it is really good but it’s also really pricey. If you ask me, a better option for visiting this historic restaurant is to head over during the day to give their awesome burger (available until 3:45pm) a try.

During our trip to Ireland, the Michael W Travels family dined in pubs quite frequently.
Besides pub dining, Lucas and I were excited to check out McDonald’s Ireland. Lucas was interested in getting a toy and I was looking forward to seeing what local menu items might be available.

The Michael W Travels family recently got back from an awesome little trip to Ireland.
While Dublin is usually a quick flight from NYC, we flew on connecting flights each way. A small inconvenience is worth it to save on the cost of a flight, if you ask me…
During our travels we got to visit a Priority Pass lounge in three airports. Two of the lounges were solid offering food, snacks, drinks and a place to relax.
The other Priority Pass lounge was quite different and possibly the most interesting one that I’ve ever visited.

L-Salvation Burger, R- Classic Burger
Last April, Kim, Lucas and I spent a couple of nights at the Radisson Martinique, located in Koreatown, NYC.
During our visit (from our distant home in Brooklyn, NY) I decided that we needed to try out the burgers at what might be the hottest, new burger shop in the city,
Salvation Burger from Chef April Bloomfield (famous for The Spotted Pig among other restaurants).
Soon after our visit, a fire broke out in Salvation Burger so I held back on posting my review of the restaurant. With the restaurant reopening in early December after various delays, I felt it was finally time to post my review.
