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.
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
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
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
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
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
