Burger Mama @ The Lioness of Leith

Collection Only

Burger Mama at the Lioness of Leith was born in early February 2018 from the passion to deliver a real ‘gourmet’ burger menu to the locals of Leith – and guess what, they really delivered!

Burger Mama has earned its ‘gourmet’ badge of honour by developing an exceptional menu, using only the finest locally sourced ingredients. Their beef patties are made in-house with flank and skirt steak from Findlay’s of Portobello, Award Winning Butcher, and their chicken burgers are specially sourced Scottish chicken, bathed in buttermilk and fried in a mouth-watering crispy coating. Looking for something veggie or vegan? Don’t worry, they have something for you too! Burger Mama aims to create an inclusive dining experience for everyone, offering a range of plant-based burgers that tick all the boxes on taste.

Every burger needs a bun, and their artisan buns are sourced and baked within a few hundred yards of the restaurant. Complementing their menu, Burger Mama offers premium local and international drinks, and an inventive and evolving cocktails list, including innovative alcohol-free options.
