The Burger Joint I Can't Stop Dreaming About...

Have you ever been to a restaurant and knew right away that you'd be back? Without even eating a bite or ordering a drink, you just know that the restaurant is perfect for you? That's how I felt upon walking into Burger and Bun, the brand new burger joint to enter the competition. if you've ever been in Glasgow you would know burger joints are everywhere, walk down St Vincent street and you'll pass four. Despite being a little outside Glasgow's city centre Burger and Bun definitely gives them all a run for their money. Burger and Bun is in Bearsden, straight across the road from the Hillfoot train station, the perfect location for anyone travelling by train. The perfect location for this sunny weather too with an outdoor area for you to eat or sit, relax and have a beer, think a beer garden with food that will blow your mind.

My mum and I headed there to check out their menu a few weeks ago and we had the best time. Upon entering you instantly fall in love with the interior design, it's small, homely and extremely rustic with both a downstairs area, an upstairs area and an outdoor area, so no running out of seats anytime soon. We got to pick where we would sit and since I would be taking photos I opted to go for a window seat with a lovely view of the road outside. The restaurant seems to be positioned in such a lovely housing area with gorgeous little cottage styled houses, not what I expected Bearsden to look like at all. One of the lovely waiters got us set up with some drinks, my mum had a glass of apple juice and I took a lemonade which we sipped while searching the menu. My mum opted for the classic burger, a beef patty on a brioche bun which usually comes with lettuce and tomato but my mum opted to swap these out for some crispy onions. I decided to get the classic chicken burger, a crispy breadcrumbed chicken fillet on a brioche bun with their homemade burger sauce. We both absolutely loved out burgers. My mum said it was the best burger she had eaten in a long time and I could say the same for the chicken burger I had. For my burger, the chicken was the perfect middle ground of crispy and tender. My mum noted that her burger was extremely tender and cooked to perfection.

We also opted to get some sides with our burger, my mum opted for the simple, original fries while I went a little more adventurous with the bacon fries; fries topped with bacon, cheese (and cheese curds) and onions. You could smell the onions on my plate as soon as it was sat on the table, well it wasn't really a plate but rather baskets on top of wooden chopping boards, they were so cute and fit the rustic feel of the restaurant. I honestly adored my fries, I would make the 50-minute journey back just for those fries, they were cooked to perfection, still crispy despite being under more cheese than I could ever imagine, the onions were cooked perfectly so the flavour soaked through onto the chips underneath leaving everything tasting perfect. My mum loved her fries and finished them all explaining that they were cooked perfectly, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, just how my loaded fries were too. My mum cleared her plates finishing both her fries and burger while I had a struggle finishing my fries since the portion was so large, but I did have to loosen my belt to help with how much I was determined to finish it.

We then opted to share a dessert, the hot chocolate fudge cake which I had a strawberry milkshake with and my mum opted for an Americano coffee. The cake was absolutely amazing, so sweet and rich. It came laid out lovely o the plate with ice cream, chocolate and caramel sauce and a sliced strawberry, it was almost hard to ruin how pretty it was by eating it. We demolished the cake loving every single bit of it and I let my mum finish it since it was originally just for her, but it was absolutely amazing and I would definitely order it next time. The milkshake was made fresh with strawberries and ice cream which was obvious by how beautiful it tasted and how creamy it was. It was absolutely wonderful. My mum's coffee in her words "definitely cleared the cobwebs" she said it was definitely full Italian roast as it energised her like no coffee had before, so strong and delicious.

We honestly had the most amazing time and will definitely be going back, despite not picking up the bill at the end of the meal it wouldn't have cost all that much for what we had ordered despite it filling us for the full day. six pounds a burger, three for fries, five for the loaded fries, four for a dessert, three for a milkshake and two pounds fifty pence for an Americano. Without our drinks, it wouldn't even have reached £30, which is much less than all the other burger joints around the Glasgow area, despite now being my favourite of them all. We will definitely be returning, even speaking about possibly going for a meal there after my graduation ceremony in November.
