As well as a burger menu, Hungry Wolf brings a taste of the Black Sea to Edinburgh with their intriguing Georgian food, including the next big thing: the cheese boat.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Grab one of the limited seats at Hungry Wolf’s big window and listen to the tinkle of takeaway orders stream in. The exposed chipboard motif is reminiscent of the Screwfix catalogue, but it’s not about the décor in here – it’s all about the food. Classic takeaway burgers and hotdogs are cooked fresh to order without a hint of re-heated stodge and have interesting touches. For example, a succulent chicken burger might be expected on the menu at a Scottish takeaway, but pairing it with pickles and cooling tzatziki sauce gives a hint of the Caucasus. But it’s the Georgian national dish, khachapuri, that offers something really different and unique in Edinburgh. They are freshly baked fluffy bread boats filled with piping hot cheese topped off with a runny egg, to make a satisfying late night meal or quick dinner. Pro tip: eat it by ripping the bread off the edges and dipping it into the gooey mix in the centre. What’s not to love?
