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
I instantly fell in love with Chelsea Market from the moment I walked in the door. 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
A vegan burger that looks, smells and tastes just like beef? A meatless burger that will fool even the most hardcore meat eaters? That’s what the Bill Gates-backed, San Francisco-developed Impossible Burger has been touted as by many. I’d seen many Instagram photos and blog posts by people who had eaten the burger. Photos of […]Read More James vs. The Impossible Burger
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?
Last year I took part in a documentary on Glasgow’s burger scene along with many chefs, restaurant owners and other foodies. The documentary examines and celebrates Glasgow’s love for the humble burger and it’ll leave you feeling HUNGRY! I must admit, I got a tad emotional watching it! Seeing how far our own little site […]Read More GRILLING GLASGOW (2017): A documentary on Glasgow’s burger scene. Available now. Watch here!
Juicy Lucy’s Burger Company sort of sticks out like a sore thumb where it sits in Glasgow’s city centre, but that’s only because I’m not used to seeing anything so bold and colourful in that end of town – the weird and wonderful characters who spill out of the Tollbooth across the road not included! Juicy […]Read More The Juicy Lucy – Juicy Lucy’s Burger Company, Glasgow
It can be hard finding a last minute table in Finnieston on a Saturday night; however, with burger cravings setting in, we decided to head there in a taxi and do the impossible. Walking through the door at Porter & Rye, my hopes appeared to be dashed as the restaurant was, understandably, completely packed. I […]Read More Rib-Eye Burger – Porter & Rye, Glasgow
