I have had here on my list to visit for about one year, a food blogger recommended it to me so I added it and finally I got round to taking a visit.

Kimchi Cult is very small, and can only sit maybe 20 people max but from what I saw it does more deliveries. The people who did sit in came in, ate and then left so the turn over was always fast.

The Food…

Starter

Pulled Port BOA £4.00

This looked nice when it arrived, and for £4 it was a perfect size.

This was really nice, full of flavour and I could have easily had two….but I was saving myself for my main.

Main Course

Kimchi Cheeseburger £7.50

Let me just start by saying when I saw the cost £7.50 I was very sceptical, thinking this is a pub burger cost and pub burgers are not good.

After my first bite, I knew this was no pub burger as it was very very good. It was juicy, nice flavour and perfectly cooked.

My only issue was not enough cheese on this, I think with just a little more that would have helped.

Overall

Overall my first visit was a good one, for the quality of the food and the cost this is a place you have to visit.

I will try a few other things next visit, as I will be going back.

See you soon guys!

Handmade Burger Company (Glasgow) : Review

I have always had here at the very bottom of my list, only due to hearing a massive amount of mixed reviews about the burgers. Lots said very good, and others said just meh so its always been last on my list.

I saw a deal on itison for 2 burgers for £10, and anything else you order is on top. So two burgers for £5 each…I could take a chance on that.

On entering we were greeted and taken to a table, looking around they have done inside very nice and it had a warm feeling.

The Food…

Blue Cheese and Bacon Burger £9.95 (Tonight £5 with offer)
Caramelised red onion relish, blue cheese, bacon, mayo and lettuce

IMG_7988.jpg

So if you follow my blog, I recently had a bad visit to another burger place and I had the same burger. So tonight I wanted to see if this was better, but the other places burger was just so so….

This was really good, the burger was tasty and the bacon and blue cheese worked and tasted great!

Cheesy Chips £4.70

These were nice, but I am a thin chip guy and thick chips for me are just so so….so I left about half.

Overall

Overall my first visit was good, I enjoyed the burger and saw they did many so I will go back and try a few.

Burger & Bun (Glasgow, Milngavie) : Review

149 Milngavie Road
Bearsden

I was at work when I got a ding in my email, and took a look and it was an invite to come along to Burger & Bun to see the place and try the food. I kindly accepted and then worked out how I would be getting there.

Normally as you know I frequent in Glasgow centre or the West End, but Milngavie (Bearsden)? this is a place I have never been to unless passing through.

Burger & Bun is basically opposite the Hillfoot train station, so this was very easy to get to from Glasgow Central Station.

On the outside to the side of the restaurant, there is a nice little seating area for when its sunny.

On entering we were seated next to the window, which was nice as I could look out at the nice evening.

The Food…

I could see a few burgers I wanted to try, but I asked for a recommendation so thats what I went with.

Pulled Pork Burger £8.50 (Tonight £N/A)
Slow roast pork, BBQ Sauce, Appleslaw, Crispy Onions

IMG_8035

When this arrived it looked as good as it smelt, and I couldn’t wait to take a BIG bite.

This was a very good burger!!!! the flavours were perfect and very nice. The burger was perfectly cooked and had really nice flavour, and very tender.

Ive had a few burgers recently some bad and some good, this falls in the very good category!

Cheesy Fries £4.00 (Tonight £N/A)
Cheddar Sauce, Carmelised Onions, BBQ Sauce

When this arrived my first thought was OH MY GOD!!! why? because it was a massive portion!!

Recently I had cheesy fries from another burger restaurant and NOT GOOD!! so I thought lets try the ones here.

Apart from being a massive portion……these were REALLY good!!! skinny fries, nice cheese and onions….perfect!!

Unfortunately I only ate half, as I was leaving room for the milkshake which originally I thought was a normal one but you will see when you continue to read.

Crazy Shake : Creme Egg £6.00 (Tonight £N/A)

IMG_8043

Another OMG moment tonight! When placing the order I was told it was more like a desert, but I thought maybe a thick heavy shake but I ordered it anyway.

Once it was on the table, I could see what was meant by the desert comment.

At this point I was feeling very full, but hey there is always room for chocolate 🙂

This was as good as it looks!!! next time I will order a normal milkshake but I am glad I got to try this!!

Also for £6 amazing value!!!

Overall

Firstly a big thanks to Burgers and Bun for tonights invite, and for the food and amazing service.

I am very glad that I got an invite to here tonight, as this is somewhere I wouldn’t have gone to visit. Now I have been I will aim to head back, as I would like to try more of the burgers and maybe another BIG shake or normal one.

Please do take a visit here, you won’t be disappointed.

I will be back soon Burgers and Buns 🙂
