Burger isn’t an upmarket joint, yet this place is a long way removed from your average fast food chain. Burger can be found at two locations, at Fountainsbridge and Shandwick Place. With specials changing twice monthly, these guys have put a lot of thought into their burger recipes. Their beef burger uses five different cuts of beef and loads of other ingredients. The chicken has a Japanese twist on it, and the veggie is definitely unique with loads of components and a great taste. Not only do these guys care about your burgers, they care for the environment too; all their packaging is fully compostable and all their processes are as environmentally friendly as they possibly can be. Make sure to order their must-have skin-on fries on the side as well as a boozy milkshakes to wash it all down.
