London’s hottest Scottish restaurant Mac & Wild yesterday competed in the National Burger Awards and blew the competition out of the water with their veni-moo burger to be named the UK’s Best Burger 2016. Beating off tough competition from the likes of Porky’s BBG and All Star Lanes the veni-moo took the crown and left the others begging for a bite.
The iconic veni-moo burger was included in Time Out’s Top 10 Dishes of 2015 and also won Best Signature Burger in the 2015 National Burger Awards. This latest win is just another in a long list of accolades that Mac & Wild and The Wild Game Co. have gathered over the years.

Working with Calum MacKinnon, founder of successful bar concepts, Amicus Apple Edinburgh/Aberdeen and NOX Aberdeen, Adam Pinder who has worked in an array of successful venues around the world including the Mandarin Oriental Boston. Mac & Wild have brought a slice of Scotland to London.
Last autumn Mac & Wild restaurant launched on London’s Great Titchfield Street, in the heart of London’s West End. Mac & Wild has been brought to London by street food sensations The Wild Game Co. Now at WGC’s first permanent home, diners are taken on a journey to the Scottish highlands, enjoying the finest wild venison, game and seafood in a rustic setting.
Mac & Wild are a dynamic team, having fun cooking and promoting modern British game and seafood, whilst remaining true to their roots.
