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.
There’s so much to love about Finnieston. It’s one of my favourite parts of Glasgow and is forever expanding with great new bars and restaurants. The Kelvingrove Café isn’t new, but it’s been on the James vs. Burger hit-list for a while. After this visit, I can happily report that it’s already become a firm […]Read More Sliders – Kelvingrove Cafe, Glasgow

On a recent trip to New York, we noticed a couple of things in particular during our visits to various bars and restaurants to find the best burgers in the city. We noticed that many New York establishments have taken a simplified, almost retro approach with their burgers and also that there are more speakeasy-style […]Read More C&B Burger – Cocktail & Burger, Glasgow
Recently I attempted the mighty burger challenge from Ad Lib in Glasgow’s City Centre, which consisted of 3lbs of beef, 1lb of cheese and salad all packed inside a giant toasted burger bun. It is without a doubt the biggest burger that Scotland has to offer and as previously reported, I could only manage half […]Read More Lamb Sliders – Ad Lib, Glasgow
