What do you get the Burger lover who has it all? A Burger spatula that will never get used, that’s what! I’m not gonna lie, I’d love to have one even though I would never want to dirty it. This bad boy is 17 inches long and 5 inches wide so
it’s packing some heat, I mean it can pack some meat. They’re $20 at the GAMAGO site.
Yes, that’s the original Shake Shack Hot Dog Cart which they wheeled out every summer between 2001-2003 in New York City’s Madison Square Park. In 2004 the actual Shake Shack was opened and then mania ensued. Until Shake Shack posted this picture just a few weeks ago I was beginning to think that there never was a cart and that they were just trying to give themselves some street cred. Oh well, I was wrong. And who needs street creed when you have the Shack Burger anyway?

Through May when you purchase an Extra Vale Meal & Large Fries at McDonald’s you get one of these handy dandy Fry Holders for your car for FREE. The only catch? You need to be in Japan. It’s not available in the United States (Ever? Yet?) but I did find one for sale on ebay if you just need to own one.
One of the first things that cross my mind when I wake up Saturday mornings is that Ortelio aka El Mago de las Fritas is starting on his weekly masterpieces, Ajiaco and Chicharrones. Ajiaco is a stew filled with different vegetables and meats. Chicharrones (made from Pork Belly) are known as Pork Rinds but this is not the supermarket puffed up versions of them. Quantities on both of these guys is very limited so you need to get with the program (ponerse las pilas) and get here early enough that they’re not sold out of either.
What I like to do is arrive right around the 10:30AM mark when he’s putting the final touches on the 2 specialties. I sit at the counter and order a Tortilla Callejera for breakfast. The Tortilla Callejera is an El Mago-style Omelette Sandwich. Imagine an Omelette Sandwich with Julianne Potatoes, Onions, Ham (optional) and El Mago’s Secret Sauce mixed right in with the Egg before cooking. It’s then placed on a toasted piece of Cuban Bread and topped with more crispy Potatoes. He might sneak in some Ketchup on some occasions and Cheese is also an option.
By the time I’m finishing my Callejera, the Chicharrones have been placed under their heat lamp throne. Life expectancy on these guys is usually a couple of hours which is why you must hurry.
Chicharrones Waiting For You
The Magical Chicharrones
I order a portion of Chicharrones to have while I’m waiting for the Fritas and Ajiaco I’m taking to go. I love these fellas but be very careful when eating them that you don’t crack a tooth. It’s never happened to me but these guys will give your teeth a workout.
And yes, they are as good as they look.
Chicharrones Go Time
So…..should I save you a seat for next Saturday?

What do you get the person who has everything? Probably not Burger Coasters but the holidays are rapidly approaching and I wouldn’t mind a set myself. Get em’ here.
3 years ago I came across Toddland’s Delicious Wallet (which I now own). I decided to check out their site to see if they had added any new “Burger Products” to it. The success of the wallet has apparently cause them to create a slew of Burger & Food related products some of which I’ve posted pictures of below. All pictures are property of Toddland.

Maybe you need a new wallet?
Hot Dog Coin Purse
If you just have to own one of these guys go check out Toddland.
Garudio Studiage out of London has a few of the most interesting vinyl purses I’ve ever seen, not that I’m into purses. They also have a burger wallet which might be more my speed. If you’re interested: Garudio Studiage Shop.
I want this wallet bad and if you’d like to get it. Go here.
I’m not gonna lie to you. I really want these guys. There’s going to be 2 of them available in August. The first is just the Funko Bobble Head and the second is the the Funko Force Bobble Head. They’re both approximately 6 inches tall but the Funko Force comes with poseable hands and a Whopper.
