Bread Meats Bread
The original, which helped to kick-off Glasgow’s love of gourmet burgers, does enormous portions of inventive, indulgent food.
There’s lots of choice on St Vincent Street burger strip, but over the past few years Bread Meats Bread has seen them come and go. With a winning combination of fast food – open benches with high stools in the window, no bookings, straightforward menu; and good food – dry-aged Scottish beef, mustard fried patties, imaginative toppings and fresh ingredients – this buzzing little corner diner serves one of the best burgers in the city. Take the Wolf of Vincent Street, a big burger with big flavours, thick steak patty, nicely pink the middle, heaped with juicy pulled pork and the meaty heat from the fiery ’nduja sausage liberally spread throughout, all in a shiny brioche bun. Other options include grilled cheese sandwiches, the avocado and steak sandwich, and a good range of vegan burgers. Chips come as skin-on fries, or sweet potato fries, or even Canadian-style poutine – huge chunks of creamy cheese curd and fries all swimming in a glossy beef gravy. There’s a good selection of craft beers in bottle and ABK Hell on tap, and luxurious milkshakes served in huge 20oz metal shakers made with local ice-cream and topped with a tower of whipped cream.
