Visit & Vibes
After conquering my 11th Munro at the challenging Schiehallion, I was absolutely famished.
Hiking through the rugged Scottish terrain can work up quite an appetite, and today, I found myself at the Fountain Bar and Restaurant in Aberfeldy, thanks to the recommendation of my hiking companion.
As we walked in, it had the cozy ambiance of your typical pub, but what set it apart was the warm and welcoming staff who greeted us.
8oz Fountain Beef Burger £13.95
bacon, cheese, chips, salad & homemade coleslaw
I opted to remove the salad and coleslaw.
With my hunger bordering on insatiable, I decided to go for the classic option: a burger. I figured it would be hearty enough to satisfy my post-hike cravings, and I wasn’t wrong.
The burger that arrived at my table was a sight to behold – a colossal creation that seemed like a match for my ravenous appetite. The beef patty was thick and cooked to perfection, with juices oozing out with every bite. The bun was fresh and held everything together nicely.
The cheese on the burger was good, providing a rich, creamy contrast to the savory beef. However, the one letdown in this otherwise fantastic burger was the bacon. It was disappointingly thin, lacking the bold, smoky flavor that could have taken this burger to the next level. As a result, it felt more like a cheeseburger with a subtle hint of bacon rather than a proper bacon cheeseburger.
But, let’s not dwell on that minor setback because, all in all, this meal was immensely satisfying. The copious serving of chips that accompanied the burger only added to the delight of the meal. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, they were the perfect sidekick to the burger.
