Best steakhouses and burger bars in Edinburgh
Edinburgh's best joints for juicy meat
We meat again! Edinburgh's love affair with hunky steaks and chunky burgers continues. From greasy finger-licking joints to upmarket grill houses, it's all about homemade patties, dry-aged steaks and locally sourced, proudly Scottish meat. Sides have been shaken up though: the resurgence of the skinny fry sees the replacement of the thick-cut, triple-cooked chip, and in some cases mac'n'cheese is the preferred accompaniment. That we should see such times. Still, it all goes down the same way, especially when it's washed down by a thick boozy shake or bold red.
