Ad Lib has launched its annual search to find Glasgow's Best Burger.
Now in its fifth year, Ad Lib Merchant City is giving Glasgow’s many burger restaurants the chance to pit their finest patty recipe against one another in what could be the fiercest bun challenge yet.
The Riverside Show's roving reporter Colin Stone will be on hand for judging duties on October 5, along with Jenny Cook from Capital FM, Alan Wallace from 5pm.co.uk, Burnistoun’s Robert Florence and food blogger Pamela Graham.
As well as the judged competition, burger blogger James Lees, of James vs Burger, will also be presenting the People’s Award, as voted for by the public.
Voting is now open and will close on October 3 on the day of the competition.
The winner of last year's Best Burger was the Love Bite burger from Meat Hammer at Nice 'n' Sleazy.
The creation consisted of a handmade Hawaiian bun, bacon peanut butter, chilli jam, chargrilled pickled onion, candied Parma ham, buffalo hot sauce a patty made with chuck, short rib and bone marrow.
But can Meat Hammer retain their crown this year?
Ad Lib's head chef, Mark Balarsky said: "This year looks like the biggest year yet for burger off.
"Over the last few years we’ve gone burger mad in this city and the competition looks stiffer than ever.
"A few years ago the judges were looking for the best meat patty on a simple bun, but last year they opened their eyes to the creativity of the chefs involved.
"When Meathammer won with their fantastic creation on a home baked brioche with bacon chilli jam I knew we were rocking.
"Still every year is different, the only factor that remains the same is that quality food cooked to perfection always has a great chance."
Also, in celebration of National Burger Day today (August 27), Ad Lib will be offering a selection of special burgers, with one of them being their recipe for the Glasgow’s Best Burger competition.
This includes the Pastrami Tsunami, the Alex Salmon, The Boar'n to be Wild, the Midnight Train to Georgia, The General Franco and the 76'r which all cost £11.95.
