A PAIR of southside chefs can now boast making the second best burger in Glasgow.

The Glasgow’s Best Burger competition was held at city centre venue Ad Lib this week, inviting chefs from across the city to offer up their best attempt on a platter.

And nabbing second place was The Red Onion, owned by Giffnock man John Quigley, who created his award-winning burger with the help of sous-chef Stephen Allison, from Clarkston.

City centre restaurant Grill on the Corner nabbed the top prize with its Japanese Kobe beef burger, (an expensive cut produced using unusual methods of cattle-rearing and praised for its tenderness). The same burger which was awarded just 12th place in 2009.

Judges at the competition included The Herald’s Ron Mackenna, writer Tam Cowan, radio DJ Jennie Cook and James Lees, a blogger who this year set out on the quest to find Glasgow’s finest burgers.
