Where to find Edinburgh’s best burgers
A succulent and saucy patty, the crunch of fresh lettuce and tomato, the tang of pickle, and promise of melted cheese, all wedged between two soft buns. There are few pleasures in life so great as that of the perfect burger.
Apparently the most noble of sandwiches was invented in Hamburg, Germany (or at the very least, this is certainly where it derives its namesake). Either way, May has been earmarked as a month to celebrate the burger and we’re not complaining.
But where to find the ultimate stacks of joy in Edinburgh? We’ve got a few ideas:
Focusing on the quality of their ingredients, BRGR Co. offers simply assembled burgers made exclusively from locally sourced products. There is lots of eye watering choice on the menu but we say keep it simple and go for The Messy Burger – patty topped with mature cheddar, chilli con carne, tomato, lettuce, onions, dill pickle and sriracha mayo. Bon appetit!
As its name suggests, Burgers and Beers Grillhouse is the place to be for fantastic burgers and beers! Situated in Edinburgh’s buzzing, vibrant Royal Mile, this is the ideal place to bring friends and family. Our top picks are definitely their Big Yellow Taxi, with pastrami, cream cheese and pesto, and their Johnny Cash, with goat’s cheese and caramelised onion.
With an extensive menu to meet every taste bud, and consumer-conscious tags on the menu that let you know what you’re putting in your belly, Badger & Co is certainly one of the most popular restaurants in Edinburgh. We recommend you try their Tweed Valley Beef Burger – Scottish beef, pancetta, burnt onion mayonnaise, smoked Applewood cheddar, pretzel bun, skin on chips.
