Burger Meats Bun, Restaurants, Edinburgh

A rough and ready atmosphere belies some seriously delicious gourmet burgers at slightly inflated prices

Burger Meats Bun brings a rough and ready approach to the world of gourmet burger-flipping. After taking your seat in a basic-looking booth, you’re presented with a paper placemat (which makes for easier cleaning at the end of your meal) and a fat roll of paper towels to clear up the inevitable saucy mess around your mouth. The service is chatty if a little brisk, and milkshakes are mixed up and presented in old school milk bottles. In the spirit of ethical sourcing, there’s a good selection of semi-local beers on offer too.

It’s the burgers that are the main attraction though, and they do not disappoint – the venison and haggis special is succulent without being suffocatingly rich, while the seemingly limited regular menu emphasises quality over quantity. A single note of caution: this place is so burger-centric, the already slightly inflated price doesn’t account for fries or salad.
