Above and beyond burgers

Winter’s coming. Warm up with a bit of stodgy deliciousness I say – this season I’m shunning salads for comfort food.

Glasgow has the same ideas because in the last year burger joints offering scrumptious filling food have sprung up all over the city. But there’s one that warms my heart and totally satisfies my stomach like no other – Bread meats Bread on St Vincent Street.

More than burgers

Poutine at Breat Meats BreadAnd it’s not just their mouth-watering burgers that won me over. It’s more to do with Quebecois delicacy poutine, chips smothered in gravy and cheese curd. Yum!

I knew this luscious treat from my days in Quebec in Canada. And up until now, no one but the Québécois could do it right. But not only does BMB do it right – they possibly do it better. Their flawless original along with a Glasgow inspired variety or a sweet potatoes version, means I’m spoiled for choice.

Of course do try one of their impressive burgers. But make it extra extra special by adding poutine.

If you’ve never tried poutine, prepare for a tasty calorie-rich sensation. And don’t be alarmed – cheese curds don’t melt. They’re squishy flavourful morsels that make good chips great.

Enjoy!

  1. I’m Canadian and I’ve just arrived in Glasgow for over three weeks. As soon as I found that there’s poutine at BMB I went to try it. Gotta say it was impressive – only weak point was that the gravy could have been thicker, but the gigantic chunks of cheese curds made up for it. Feels like hom ❤ I just found your blog and will be reading through it to find out more about Glasgow but I'm already loving the city!

    • Thanks Annie – glad the poutine mostly lived up to expectation. Glasgow is a wonderful city and we bet you’re going to love it. Lots to discover – so enjoy! And yes, please keep reading. 🙂
