Last night was my first experience of Burgher Burger. I’ve mentioned this is a earlier post but for those of you that don’t know Burgher Burger is a guerilla dining experience where several different chefs produce a menu (including a burger, obvi) and host an evening at ‘greasy spoon’ cafes around Edinburgh, oh and the menu is matched with beer.
This is the third time we’ve tried to get tickets for the event as the tickets sell out in under a minute, the current venue only holds about 35 people so trying to get a ticket is pretty competitive! The evening was brilliant, the food perfect and the atmosphere buzzing, the beer was pretty gorgeous too (supplied by Harviestoun Brewery). Here is the menu, along with tasty, tasty photos.
Starter: Sweet corn, mussel and coriander chowder served with Harviestoun Bitter and Twisted
The starter was lovely and flavoursome, the peppery mussels and fresh coriander tasted great alongside the battered sweet corn rosti that was served on the side. It also went great with the citrusy Bitter and Twisted.
Main: Buffalo burger & mozzarella with marinated tomatoes, pesto, sweet potato chips and leaves served with Harviestoun Wild Hop IPA
Oh my gosh, this was amazing! The burger was perfectly rare, the chips were crispy and salty and the buffalo mozzarella was to die for. It doesn’t sound like the most exciting burger on paper but it definitely works, especially with the Wild Hop IPA which was fruity and fizzy!
Dessert: Edinburgh Mess served with Harviestoun Mr Sno’Balls
Plums, cream, nuts, milk – you can’t really go wrong here and served with one of my favourite dark winter beers. They did really well serving this dish as it wasn’t a huge portion and complemented the rest of the meal perfectly.
All in all my boyfriend and I had a really great evening and would definitely do it again, soon if possible! The food, service and atmosphere were all enough to make the evening a success! Thanks for a great night Burgher Burger!
