You can no longer walk down a street in ️Edinburgh that does not have a burger place situated on it.
‘Oh have you been to Burger Meats Bun?’
‘Don’t you mean Bread Meats Bread?’
‘No I think you are thinking of Burgers and Beers?’
Seriously guys, let’s calm down and chill with the burger situation.
I had to check this one out for myself due to the constant raving on Instagram, I like to do this because sometimes I think people just go somewhere for the picture rather than the food. *Sarcastic Gasp*
We were sat right next to the kitchen which I would say was the equivalent of having the aisle seat on an aeroplane, people bumping your elbows but the right position if you want attention. The light above us was not working (as were a couple others around the restaurant) and the decor had a kitchen/butcher shop vibe.
The waiter was great, very attentative and friendly. I enjoyed that, even though we ordered a side each, he suggested that we only have one side to share as the burgers were pretty big. I thought this was really lovely of him as not often you get someone being honest rather than pushing more fries down your throat. However on the other hand one of us was asked how we wanted our burger cooked and the other was not – we ordered the same burger. When they came they were both cooked VERY well done which was not what was asked for.
For drinks we decided to go for milkshakes, and I in particular went for the vanilla milkshake which was lovely and the cream on top was freshly whipped. I like how you can choose what size of milkshake to get as sometimes you don’t want the gigantic one (…on rare occasions). The amusement of the night was wondering why everyone was being asked if they wanted cream on the top (as I feel like cream should just be given) , we then realised it was because they were running out of cream as one of the waiters was sent out to the shops to buy some more….woops!
We ordered from the Black Label section of the menu and decided on the Lothian Wolf, this burger has cheese, bacon, pulled pork, BBQ sauce, crispy onions and ‘Nduja mayo. As mentioned before it was over cooked, the first few bites were enjoyable but then it got a bit ‘meh’. Long story short it was not amazing but it was also not disgusting.
For our sides we went against the waiters opinion of not needing two, this was due to the fact that there was too much choice. I ordered the buffalo fries which had buffalo sauce and crispy fried onions, it is also meant to have blue cheese sauce but unfortunately that is the one food in the world I cannot stand and refuse to eat. These were awesomely spicy, ‘moreish’ is what comes to mind. The only flaw is that it needed way more sauce, once the first layer of chips were eaten there was no more sauce left.
The other side we ordered was the maple bacon sweet potato fries, which are exactly what they say on the tin. If you have a sweet tooth you would LOVE these as they are DRIPPING in maple syrup. Altogether a bit too much for me when you combine this side with the milkshake and the burger.
As a round up I am going to say I will not be running back. Sometimes, especially when it comes to burgers, I think it is important to focus on the simple things and to make them perfect before adding rash decisions to the menu.
Total: 10/20 from Cup of T!
