Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

With queues stretching outside the door at peak times there is no doubting the popularity of Bread Meats Bread. The micro-chain started out in Glasgow and its simple concept – produce burgers from high-quality meat at competitive prices in a family-friendly environment – has proved just as successful in Edinburgh. The menu is focused: burgers, dogs, sandwiches and sides, with no puddings or starters. Made from Perthshire Aberdeen Angus the burgers live up to the hype. The signature Lothian wolf is 6oz of well-flavoured dry-aged beef, pulled pork, bacon and a kick of spicy nduja. There are also ‘smashed’ burgers, which are multiple thin patties in a bun. There are some surprises on the menu too, like a range of vegan burgers made from seitan and poutine, a Canadian dish of chips, gravy and curds which tastes exactly as you’d imagine. The busy kitchen is open to the restaurant but although food comes out pretty quickly some of the sides lack that just cooked freshness.
