The team behind the UK’s best burger have opened an Edinburgh outlet, taking a prime position within the acclaimed Bonnie & Wild food hall in the St James Quarter.

Nick Watkins of Glasgow’s El Perro Negro restaurant had been looking for the right Edinburgh location for a while, and said the prospect of “joining the Bonnie & Wild family was a brilliant opportunity, and too good to pass up on”.

Burger afficionados will know that El Perro Negro has won a string of culinary and business accolades in recent years, including UK’s best burger in both 2021 and in 2019. The popular eatery has a restaurant in Glasgow’s Woodlands area.

Rubbing shoulders in Bonnie & Wild with a variety of exciting chef-led food businesses including Jimmy Lee’s Salt & Chilli, Gary Maclean’s Creel Caught and The Gannet, El Perro Negro offers a mouthwatering selection of meaty masterpieces including its award-winning Top Dog burger boasting bone marrow and Roquefort butter, double bacon, caramelised onions, and black truffle mayo.

Owner Nick Watkins said: “All of El Perro Negro’s beef is sourced from small farms in the UK – always grass-fed and always dry-aged.”,
