Momofuku Ssam - Bo Ssam, will I ever have it?

I went to Momofuku Ssam for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed my meal (my 2 friends had complaints, price and portion size mostly). I saw several groups of people ordering the Bo Ssam and knew that when I go back I'd love to order it. My problem is I don't think I"ll ever have a group of at least 6 people to go there so we can all share it together (especially since my best friend says she won't go back). I was wondering if anyone's ever been in a similar situation (not being able to have the number of people to try something you'd really like to have) and was able to make it work by meeting up with others to share the meal?

Big Apple BBQ Suggestions

I've only been once years ago and don't remember what I had. This year I got a FastPass and am going to try and plan out what I'm getting and spend a good amount of time there. I live in Manhattan so no need to go to any of the NYC vendors. My question is what's the longest I can expect to wait in the FastPass lines? Wondering if I'll be able to try just about everything the out-of-state vendors offer between the 2 days.

Shake Shack Recommendations

I think I'll make my next order a Bird Dog and I haven't had a shake yet so I'm thinking Black and White Shake.

Shake Shack Recommendations

Just got back from my third trip...

Shack-cago Dog
Cup of Salted Caramel

I dunno why but to me it tasted just like the Flan I had there yesterday, could they have ran out of the Salted Caramel and just getting rid of the leftover Flan from yesterday or is my palette just not that good? I really enjoyed the Shack-cago Dog :)

Shake Shack Recommendations

What you had was the Concrete Jungle, the same custard I had the first time, a permanent on their menu. I didn't understand until last time I went that you can get the special flavors with any of the shake or custard options.

Shake Shack Recommendations

So after living in Manhattan for about 2 years now and only a short walk to Shake Shack I finally tried it out recently. When I discover a new, quick place I like I tend to obsess over it for a while, wanting to try out nearly everything or at least the most talked about items.

My first order was...

Single Shack Burger
Cheese Fries
Concrete Jungle

My second order was...

Double Stack
Cup of Flan Custard

My question is for those who know this place much better than I, what else is highly recommended? Specifically interested in the special custard flavors since they only seem to be monthly. If I miss a special flavor one month how often do they bring them back around? I'm curious cause it seems today is my last day to get the salted caramel and I've read good things about it. I've also never had a Chicago style hot dog, so how do theirs stack up?

I feel like I just got fatter just from writing all that.

Thank you from my first post! :)
