Burgers from the canal boat by Union Canal basin


A little bit up from the end of the Union Canal in Edinburgh, someone has set up what is basically a burger van in a canal boat. On Saturday, eldest and I were doing errands in that part of town, and we decided to sample their food. In fairness to them, they have lots of non burger options, which also looked good, but the siren call of burger was difficult to resist.

They were happy to give eldest a plain burger in an unbuttered bun with nothing added but ketchup, while I got the full on lots of salad, onions and burger relish. This isn’t fancy dining, but what it is was done well. And if I worked in what we are now supposed to refer to as the financial district of Edinburgh, I’m sure the thought of a bacon morning roll would make a cold trudge along the canal more enjoyable.
