MEATmarket is not only famous for its burgers or, even better, its cocktails, but also for the wonderful ‘Soft and Hard Shakes’ it offers. Its selection is simple but made with great products and served in generous portions. The menu includes the famous Market Bourbon shake, which is composed of Maple Syrup, Bourbon, and vanilla ice cream. The market itself does not take reservations and its reputation precedes it, so it is recommended that you arrive early.
