I headed down the coast to Northern Virginia this past weekend and while I ended up spending more time in the Shenandoah Valley than in DC, I did get to visit the newest addition to the Shake Shack empire!
The F Street location only opened a few weeks ago and was overrun with tourists when I arrived leading to a bit of line confusion. I was there for one thing only and was determined to get it in my hour to spare: the "Doughnuts are Forever" concrete. Vanilla frozen custard, pieces of a coconut doughnut from Astro Doughnuts, strawberry jam and rainbow sprinkles all mixed together into a little cup of heaven. It's a really fun concrete, not too chocolatey or overwhelming and eating spoonfuls of jam took me back to childhood when I would sneak such things out of the jar. Maybe next time I'll finally go to the Spy Museum next door.
