A really great veggie burger is a hard thing to come by. Only one that I’ve ever eaten has made me not think about how I’d rather be eating a juicy cheeseburger instead – the $6 Superiority Burger in New York City. Even the much-hyped Impossible Burger was a huge let down. I’m always wary […]Read More Hold The ‘Cheese’ on This Excellent Vegan Burger – Freddy & Hicks at Platform – Glasgow

It’s one of the best looking spots in Glasgow with its large floor to ceiling windows, dark wood and warmly-lit brick walls that feel so welcoming as soon as you set foot inside. Prior to this visit, I’d already […]Read More There’s Better Things Than The Burger at Chelsea Market
I recently wrote about my experience of the much-hyped Impossible Burger. You can read the whole review and see the photos here, but in short, I thought it was pretty lousy. A disappointment of the highest order. For months, all I’d heard about was that the Impossible Burger was going to be the veggie burger […]Read More The Best Veggie Burger I’ve Ever Eaten – Superiority Burger, New York
The first time I ate at a Smashburger was at Newark airport. Our flight was delayed and everyone was tired, cranky and hungry. At the time, I probably would have told you that the burger I was biting into was one of the best I’d ever eaten. That was many years ago. That airport Smashburger […]Read More A tale of two patties – Smashburger, Glasgow
