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

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!

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)

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!!!

I have passed here many times and looked at the window and thought mmmm on display is some displays of what desserts you can have and they all look so good.

I started to check out Bing Soul on Instagram, and what I saw I knew I had to 100% visit as it looked amazing!!!

So I finally did….

On entering we were seated, I opted for the window seat so I could enjoy the outside view of people watching.

So I wanted to order something MEGA sweet, and also I was recommended to try something from a member of Bing Soul staff on Instagram so I kept my promise and ordered it….and I am so glad I did!!

What I Ordered…

Cheeky Choco Waffle

WOW! this is what I said as it arrived.

To be honest I wasn’t sure how to start eating this, but I thought if its going to be messy so what and I just went for it.

It was amazing, packed with waffle, ice cream, cream, oreo bits soooo good perfect for my sweet tooth.

Word of warning after eating this you will be very full for the rest of the day.

I cant wait to have another.

BRGR (Glasgow) : Review

I had heard so many good things about BRGR, that I added it to my list. After many months of sitting on my to visit list….I finally visited.

BRGR’s new Glasgow restaurant is situated where Smoak used to be, not to be confused with Smoak BBQ. Its a small premises but just big enough to make it feel cosy, and welcoming.

On arrival we were seated at the window, looking about BRGR havn’t really done too much inside to change the existing look.

After a nice welcoming and asked to order I waited for the food to arrive…

The Food…

Blue Cheese & Bacon Burger £6.50
Lettuce, Pickle, Pink Onion, BRGR Sauce, Blue Cheese and Bacon

IMG_6495.jpg

On arrival the burger was wrapped in tin foil, similar idea to Five Guys.

After taking two bites out of it, I noticed something missing….the bacon! So I sat back and looked over to where the staff were standing (At the main counter).

I sat for around 10 to 15 mins, and not once did any member of staff look over at my direction as they were chatting with each other…due to this I decided just to eat the burger while it was still warm.

The burger was OK, and the blue cheese was nice…but overall it was just an OK burger.

Main Course

Buffalo Fries £3
Topped with Blue cheese and Franks Sauce

The chips arrived in a cardboard box, and when I opened it it looked and smelled nice.

After a few mouthfuls the amount of sauce that was over them, was FAR too overpowering!!! the chips were swimming in the sauce!!

Orio Milkshake £4

IMG_6492This was the best part of tonight’s meal, the milkshake was very good, thick and had a good flavour.

Overall

Service tonight for me (remember its my experience, as I have heard very good reviews) was not good, nobody came round to see if the food was OK and when I needed attention I didn’t get any.

I mentioned to the manager that it was missing the bacon, and they took 10% off the bill which was a very nice gesture.

Overall my first visit will probably be my last, nothing clicked tonight even my friend who went with me felt exactly the same about the whole experience.

Sorry guys
