Harlem Shake | 5 Must Try Shakes & Burgers Uptown NY

Updated: Nov 14

collaboration with harlem shake**


In Harlem, there's a well known established family-friendly restaurant in which you can delight yourself with an assortment of tasty bites. The name is Harlem Shake, a place where burgers are made, and milkshake dreams come through. It's been ages since I've had any type of milkshake, and I'm happy to say that the ones tasted here were a good place to start again.


From the retro decor to your customized selection from the menu, this eatery is sure to make you feel at home during happy hours, or anytime you visit. The walls are graced with autographed pictures of every celebrity who have ever ordered from the restaurant like Wendy Williams, Shaquille O'Neil, Samuel L Jackson, P Diddy, Maya Angelou...I mean the list goes on.



The burgers and milkshakes are very soulful here. You can totally customize how you want your burger, and add your preferred add-ons. We tasted the Classic Burger with beef (turkey option available), the Hot Mess Burger which is served with a sloppy joe style delicious sauce, and the Hot Honey Chick Burger. Sides included the truffle fries, and chilli-cheese fries...the chilli fries were my favorite.




For the milkshake, we {myself and another editor at VOLATILE) tasted the classic Harlem Shake....it's their signature red velvet shake with crumb sprinkles on top. I really enjoyed this one, loved the cake crumb texture throughout the shake.



Up next was the Mississippi Mudslide shake, a chocolatey tribute to the original miss Harlem shake featuring a shot of baileys, topped with whipped cream. This was delicious, that baileys tho.....can't decide which one I liked more...this or the red velvet.




So there you have, make this spot next on your list of places to visit uptown, you'll be happily satisfied with your selections of yummy bites.

Until next time, thanks for reading. Stay awhile and checkout some of my past lifestyle content here
