A Scottish Burger To Die For (Of)

So you think we have big burgers in the U.S., right? Well, yeh, we do. But not this big. This two pattie monster with chicken breast filet and big mushrooms on a bed of lettuce was being eaten by Jordan Duffy of Edinburgh today at lunch.

Jordan and his partner Taylor Bailey were eating one table over from Sonya and me today at Deacon Brodies Tavern in Old Town, a short walk from the Edinburgh Castle. I was mesmerized by the burger and began a conversation with Jordan and his newly-pregnant lady, a delightful young couple.

Seems Jordan works for a company that has invented a specific type of roof tile only available in a few places, but expanding rapidly. The tile is composed of recycled materials and is about as ecologically friendly as it can be. Not only do the the tiles insulate, but they are inexpensive to make ("They pay us to take the recyclable material," says Jordan).

Jordan can afford the burger these days.
