Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

With a philosophy of sourcing produce locally, from their tasty brioche buns to their Stirlingshire beef, Burger are updating the fast food experience. The interior has a trendy diner feel to it, with wooden tables, teal-green seats and upbeat music on the stereo. It’s great to find dairy and gluten-free options on offer combined with an ethical hat: all their packaging is 100% recyclable. With branches in both Fountainbridge and Shandwick Place you’ll find an enticing selection of toppings and sauces to let you build your own unique burger or hot dog creation - from beef chilli to spiced black beans to grilled onions. Combine that with the wealth of sides on offer from cheese fries to chipotle slaw and you’ll find yourself with a table covered in bowls and sauce pots, and perhaps longing for a plate rather than just a metal tray. Take advantage of the specials which change every two weeks and try the homemade milkshakes (also available with a choice of toppings) which are thick, tasty and indulgent.
