KITCHEN TABLE TWELVE TRIANGLES

KITCHEN TABLE BY TWELVE TRIANGLES

KITCHEN TABLE TWELVE TRIANGLESKITCHEN TABLE TWELVE TRIANGLES

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.

WHO?

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. Expect a delicious array of home baking, an amazing brunch menu which runs ALL DAY folks…. none of this ‘we stop serving breakfast at 11:30’ nonsense here PLUS lunch, cakes, buns…they’ve got it covered. If you want poached eggs on sourdough at 3:30pm then that’s perfectly fine at the Kitchen Table!

KITCHEN TABLE TWELVE TRIANGLES
A couple of visits over the last week or two have confirmed that Kitchen Table by Twelve Triangles is here to stay. Pouring coffee from Fortitude, Steam Punk and others they are alos whipping up their own butters, creams, preserves, pickles (the pickled walnuts are to DIE FOR), and fermented ‘stuff’ too. You can dine on smashed avo with ricotta, chomp into activated charcoal sourdough toasties (the charcoal really is good for you….), and more recently they have added some evening events into their calendar too so make sure this is on your radar pronto. Room for a small one?

DISHOOM EDINBURGH, OUR REVIEW FOR OLIVE MAGAZINE…

DISHOOM EDINBURGHThe first Dishoom opened in Covent Garden in 2010 and a further three restaurants in London followed.

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. Yes, it’s all about the wine (there’s over 100 of them on the ever-rotating list) but that doesn’t overshadow the fantastic food.

TIGERLILY EDINBURGH ‘DINE OUT’

TIGERLILY EDINBURGH ‘DINE OUT’

Check me out. Yes Mrs Monkfish is on film again and doing what she does best….food shopping! Plus eating (lots of), drinking coffee (even more of), and collaborating with the team at Tigerlily Edinburgh on their new ‘Dine out’ menu.

For the whole of January you can beat those Winter blues and ‘Dine Out’ for just £15 for TWO courses. We all love a bargain particularly when the menu has been designed by my very good self plus the ace kitchen team and chefs at Tigerlily. We wanted to be able to bring you good quality produce for a good price. £15 for two courses is possible if you shop well, choose seasonal produce and are creative in the kitchen. Clever cooking and eating well doesn’t have to cost the earth.

*** DINE OUT COMPETITION ***

And if that wasn’t enough Tigerlily are running a competition over on their FACEBOOK PAGE for you to win dinner on them. Click click, like and share, you know the score!

The winners dinner will take place on Tuesday 31st January. And don’t worry, you won’t have to dine out with me, you can take someone else instead!

For more info and pics on how I worked with Tigerlily see previous post HERE.
