Edinburgh restaurants for meat-eaters
The choice of 20 or so handmade gourmet burgers here (all around £10 each) nicely complements the same number of beer pumps, should you fancy a little mix and match. The burn from the Chilli Death beefburger is easily extinguished by a crisp pint of William’s Caesar Augustus, for example, while the refined Chicken Italienne burger is a great match for Tempest Brewery’s fruity Long White Cloud.
Without making a fuss the way other local boutiques de boeuf might, Wildfire ensures its steaks are all aged for a minimum of 21 days and sourced from the Scottish Borders. Fillet, rib-eye or sirloin can all be transformed into surf and turf with the addition of king prawns sautéed in garlic butter. Sauces and sides are far from expensive.
