On a gloriously sunny Saturday, I had a nice little toddle around the town, including stops in the Grassmarket, at Edinburgh Books to say hi to MJ and at 52 Canoes Tiki Den. In between, we paused at the Edinburgh Farmers Market for a spot of lunch on the go.
The stall was doing brisk business and the wonderful aroma wafting from the grill was plenty alluring enough. We both opted for the plain buffalo burger (£3.50) topped with onions. Helen topped hers with ketchup while I added a little mustard to mine.
It proved to be very tasty with lots of moist meaty flavour packed in. I was already a fan of their work having sampled it at the Greenmantle, so this just served to reinforce the elevated place they hold in my estimation.
The street food burger has become a much maligned item, but Puddledub buffalo is an entirely different matter. It was an excellent choice to meet our informal lunching needs on this sun-kissed day.
Helen’s Questude Verdict
Brilliant buffalo in my bun, then making its way to my tum. I was picky that day, running my eye over the delights of many stalls, but this was part of the bigger plan. I hadn’t realised my hunger rising. So forced to make a snap decision I went for buffalo and was richly rewarded. Meaty, rich in flavour and texture. Yummy.
