I don’t normally take pictures of my food, let alone post them on the internets. But when I was in Glasgow last Wednesday, our team went out for lunch at Bread Meats Bread on St. Vincent Street. (Apparently this part of St. Vincent Street now gets called “Meat Street” by the locals, because of the number of gourmet burger and steak joints.) The burger pictured below (with actual humans for scale) was called “The Wolf of St. Vincent St.”, and consists of a burger patty, bacon, a veritable coal bing of pulled pork in barbecue sauce, cheese, and ‘Nduja mayonnaise. I had the gluten-free bun (very dry, meh, as these things usually are), but if I had chosen the standard burger it would have included crispy (battered) onions as well. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had a burger quite like it. I still felt full the next morning.
(Hat tip to Eric Molinsky’s Imaginary Worlds episode “Time Travelers of Renwick St.” for introducing the term “scalies” into my vocabulary, and to Teodor Javanaud Emdén for his site Skalgubbar.)
