Belted Christmas at Belted Burger: Caroline reports


That’s my kind of slider: juicy burger, juicy turkey, juicy sausage on top. While I eat, Jack shakes and serves a partridge in a pear tree (that’s a shot glass sample). Sparkly cows look on.

Belted Burgers take their name from the cattle that provide the meat for the burgers. I went to their Edinburgh restaurant on Fredrick Street to find out what they are offering this Christmas season.

Belted use all the cuts, cheap and expensive, to make a burger with the best possible taste. I sampled a Christmas special topped with pulled Turkey: the turkey was deliciously sweet, the burger juicy and flavoursome.

I also tried two seasonal cocktails. The Partridge in a Pear Tree was my favourite – boozy yet fruitily refreshing. The Gingerbread was a velvety punch of cognac and Christmas spice syrup.

If you’ve not booked that team lunch/dinner with the in-laws/pre-Christmas catch-up with friends, give Belted a try. As well as great burgers and drinks, they deliver fab service. They get rave reviews (including the one Amy wrote a few months ago) and care that you have a great evening.
