Wagamama St Andrews Square Edinburgh
Wagamama St Andrews Square Edinburgh has landed. Another Wagamama????? Does that hit you like the news that yet another Pizza Express is opening in your home town even though there’s 11 already? Or that Starbucks thinks that 20 stores is seriously not enough in Edinburgh so they’re now trying to squeeze in 4 more? Well, it probably does, although this particular Wagamama has landed in the most perfect position possible. It’s nestled between the awesome Dishoom (we do go on about it I know) and the *yet to be ventured into as* Refinery….
Yes it’s a chain but there has been some serious thought put into the layout, decor, interiors, (call it what you will), of this particular Wagas as it’s pretty funky and is definitely more interesting than it’s sister outposts on Lothian Road and Ocean Terminal. Both of these have looked rather tired of late so this restaurant makes them look like they really know what they are doing rather than following the same old format. All good so far!

We’ve fallen in love with our new kitchen table and it’s not the one in our kitchen at Monkfish Towers! No no no, we are talking about Kitchen Table Twelve Triangles which opened in Leith a month or so back.
Brought to you by the fabulous ladies behind ‘Twelve Triangles’ on Brunswick Street and (more recently) Portobello and, with a finger in the proverbial pie at Salt Horse on Blackfriars Street too they can do no wrong. Kitchen Table does what it says. They have one large kitchen table, big enough for 16 with added elbow room. Continue reading

Good Brothers Edinburgh, our review for Olive magazine…
Good Brothers Edinburgh, founded by Graeme and Rory Sutherland, is bringing the natural wine movement to Stockbridge, Edinburgh alongside some outstanding Scottish cuisine.
