Situated in Glasgow’s West End just minutes from Kelvingrove Park, The Butchershop Bar & Grill is a Manhattan-styled neighbourhood steakhouse and cocktail bar offering the best quality steaks, fresh seafood and expertly mixed signature cocktails. If you are looking for the perfect hangover curing brunch, lunch with friends or a romantic dinner – the Butchershop delivers it all. We’d never had the chance to sample one of the burgers from their menu and decided to make it the next stop on our burger quest around Glasgow.
We opted for one of the Butchershop’s standard menu burgers as well the ‘limited edition’ burger that was listed as a special.
The limited edition special burger (pictured above) consisted of a monster-sized homemade minced fillet beef patty, iceberg lettuce, fresh tomato, pan-seared foie gras, slow cooked short ribs, truffle mayonnaise and gruyere cheese all served in a delicious toasted brioche bun. The burger came served with the Butchershop’s special skinny fries to round it all off.
After one one bite we both agreed that it was without a doubt one of the best burgers we’ve ever had – not just in Scotland, but anywhere in the world. Yes, its that good.
Initially, I wasn’t sure how short ribs would work on a burger and was curious to find out. The slow cooked ribs practically melted away in my mouth and the sweet hint of the glaze complimented the juices from the meat and the foie gras perfectly. The gruyere, which up until this entry, I’d never had on a burger before, finished everything off absolutely perfectly.
I also need to touch on the use of the brioche bun and how it added to the burger. The bread was toasted and was very lightly sweetened. The bun held everything together well and overall, just felt like good, high quality bread.
The Butchershop’s limited edition burger is without a doubt one of the best we’ve ever had. I’m not sure how often it will appear on the menu, as it only appears to be available on certain weekends from what we understand. If you go to the restaurant and it’s there, you know what to do.
