We’ve scoured the city on a serious burger-binge to show you the best that our lovely Scottish city has to offer. Loosen your belts, here are the top five of the best burgers in Aberdeen. Oh, and there’s no need to pick just one. Visit each place, we’re begging you!
If you’re looking for the gourmet type of burger, then 210 bistro is your next destination. This restaurant is the ideal place to enjoy a gastronomic experience, featuring both traditional and contemporary dishes. They’ve got four burgers on their menu, each of them being served with relish, lettuce, tomato, gherkin and red onion, and for only £7 a dish. Yes honey, you read it right. Most of their produce is locally sourced, from the meat of their burger to the fish and vegetables of their main dishes. And for the sweet tooth among you, remember to leave some space for their dessert. Their carrot cake is simply precious, it’s made of walnut crumble, with caramelised chocolate, cream cheese frosting, and lots of love. I don’t know about you but I just booked my spot.
If you’re wandering around the beach side, take a little break and recharge your batteries at The Pier. This new eatery serves some pretty amazing dishes and doubtless some of the best burgers in Aberdeen. From their sailor jerry glazed steak burger with Monterey jack cheese to their breaded chicken burger with chilli jam, pulled pork, mozzarella, and more, you’re in for a burgerlicious treat. Oh and they also have an awesome bar featuring lip-smacking cocktails and local draft beer. Just saying.
