Burger meats Bun is a recent addition to Glasgow's burgeoning burger scene. Located in a basement venue in the city centre it aims to provide a small selection of high quality favourites. The seating is a mixture of tables, booth, benches, high stools in a compact softly lit space.
Staff are young, friendly and quick to let you know about any specials in addition to the regular menu items. The menu consist of 3 burger options, a couple of chicken burgers and veggie option. Theres a selection of salads and coleslaw, fries, chili fries and and three different styles of chicken wing. A couple of novel of sweet options round off the menu should you have the room.
I had the big cheese burger and fries with Maldon sea salt. Served in a brioche bun the burger is an explosion of juicy flavour. A well seasoned patty, topped with sharp melting cheddar, crisp lettuce, tomato and a delicious house sauce, it's just the right size to tackle by hand and enjoy all the flavours in one delicious bite. The need for the roll of kitchen towel supplied to each table becomes apparent. it's impossible to eat without the juice of the burger escaping onto your fingers. Quite simply it's an excellent burger. The accompanying fries are of the skinny dark American diner variety, beautifully seasoned with flakes of sea salt they compliment the burger perfectly.
Like the food menu the drinks menu follows the small but perfectly formed theme. A good selection of beers, some of them local, cider and spirits mean should you fancy a libation you won't want for options. The service was efficient and the time waiting for drinks and the burger itself reasonable.
My burger was £7.50 and the fries another £2, in line with prices throughout the city centre for quality that is well above the average. Is it the number one burger in the city? For me Nice n Sleazy's is still top of the heap but BMB certainly gives it a run for it's money and is a welcome addition to the scene. I shall definitely return, the buffalo wings demand it.
