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
The closure of the Arches back in 2015 hit a lot of Glaswegians pretty hard. Our city also lags behind so many others when it comes to street food. Platform has recently revived the much loved Arches space. It may not be a nightclub and it may not technically be street food since it’s located […]Read More Tiny Dancer’s Tiny Sliders are the Best I’ve Ever Eaten.
The first time I ever tasted côte de boeuf was in the Butchershop Bar and Grill in Glasgow many years ago. It was quite unlike anything I’d tasted before. It was near-perfect in appearance with beautiful charred grill lines and buttery-crisp edges. It was soft too, despite being as thick as a hardback novel. I […]Read More THE STEAK DIARIES: Côte De Boeuf – The Butchershop Bar & Grill, Glasgow
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
As I first set foot inside ‘Babs, my first impression was that it felt like I was on holiday. The bright, fresh tilled décor, the stripped back lighting, the winding staircases and bright colours are a breath of fresh air. I felt like I had been transported to somewhere in the Mediterranean – and as […]Read More Brunch Burgers and Baked Eggs at ‘Babs
Don’t let the outside of Drury Street Bar fool you. Go inside the small doorway and down the stairs and you’ll find one of the most spacious, chilled out bars in the city. This is a perfect after-work spot. It’s huge, there’s plenty of tables and booths, pool tables, great beer and good music. It […]Read More Nacho Average Burger / Classic Burger – Drury Street Bar & Kitchen, Glasgow
The Cali burger first appeared at Bread Meats Bread as a special menu item back in 2014 as a tribute to In-N-Out’s world famous ‘Double Double’. I reviewed the Glasgow offering back then and called it one of the best burgers I’d eaten in Glasgow. I’ve also eaten the In-N-Out Double Double and to date […]Read More Revisiting a Classic: The Cali Burger – Bread Meats Bread, Glasgow
Smashed patties are officially in. After years of piling burgers as high as humanely possible and making them too difficult to eat, Glasgow has embraced the thin, pressed burger. These are popping up on more and more menus all over the city and it’s not hard to see why. I love the fast food look […]Read More Smashed Burger – The Butchershop Bar & Grill, Glasgow
Back on August 2nd 2014, I had my first bite of the now infamous ‘Top Dog’ burger by El Perro Negro. I said in my review back then that it was the best burger in Glasgow – and I haven’t eaten it again since. So many great burgers have popped up in Glasgow since August […]Read More Revisiting The Top Dog: Is El Perro Negro’s Masterpiece Still Glasgow’s Best Burger?
Nick Watkins, aka El Perro Negro is known for his burgers. In fact, he’s regarded by many as the guy who makes the best in Glasgow. His burgers only currently appear at pop up events which sell out almost instantly and he’s currently working on securing a permanent home of his own. His previous burgers […]Read More Deep Fried Tofu Burger – El Perro Negro Pop-Up – The Hippo Taproom, Glasgow
