Keens Steakhouse is one of the oldest restaurants in NYC, founded in 1885.
Keens is famous for their outstanding mutton chop which Kim and I tried a few years back and really enjoyed. There is another item on their pub menu which I’ve wanted to try for quite some time.
I finally got to try the cheeseburger at Keens Steakhouse and in no way did it disappoint! Continue reading Food Review: The Cheeseburger At Keens Steakhouse

A summit between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un might be on again for June 12 in Singapore.
At the summit, might Trump convince the North Koreans to give up their nukes? It’s possible, but Grub Street points out that “as “a consolation prize“, the isolated country might allow an American fast food burger chain to open in Pyongchang! Continue reading Could An American Fast Food Burger Chain Open In North Korea?
The Michael W Travels family are big fans of burgers. Whether it be at home or when traveling, we always try to taste the best ones out there.
Living in Brooklyn, NY gives us close proximity to lots of great food and that definitely includes great burgers!
There are tons of classic NYC burgers and one of my favorites is served at Peter Luger’s. Other great classics could be found at the Burger Joint and Corner Bistro as well as at various other places. Continue reading Bigger Isn’t Always Better, The Cheeseburger at Jackson Hole- Queens, NY
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. Continue reading Shake Shack South Korea, Just About As Good As Shacks in the US!
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
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. Continue reading Pass on the Steak, Head to Peter Luger For Their Amazing Burger
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. Continue reading Check Out What We Tried at McDonald’s Ireland
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. Continue reading The Most Interesting Priority Pass Lounge I’ve Visited
