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.
THE DINING ROOM 28 QUEEN STREET
Date night….it doesn’t happen very often so when it does you’ve got to make the most of it… Both partial to a tasting menu (with accompanying drinks natch) we checked out The Dining Room 28 Queen Street which is part of the Edinburgh Scotch Malt Whisky Society whose home is a stunning Georgian townhouse. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a ‘members only’ affair as the Society has happily flung open its doors far and wide so that anyone can rock up and enjoy what’s on offer. Even us! Since the recent refurb they’ve tucked the members bar on the top floor of the Society but there’s a lovely new bar downstairs and a dining room on the first floor that we were welcomed to discover.

Tigerlily Edinburgh, there, I’ve said it. So what’s the first thing that comes to mind about Tigerlily? Could it be Gok Wan on the decks?! Yep, that’s happened recently…seriously. Could it be that they have one of the finest cocktail lists in town? Is it your Saturday afternoon post shopping destination for a quick drink before dinner? All of the above? Continue reading
In a nutshell…
Opening only a matter of months ago Lovage has already built up a loyal following thanks to its excellent service and outstanding food. It’s a real gem in the Old Town where you can try some very creative dishes using quality Scottish produce. A gem.
Run by brothers Lukasz and Bartek Jedrejek the two chefs have both worked in various restaurants around Edinburgh. Bartek was most recently at…..
Where do you start?! There have been soooo many new restaurant openings recently that we’re bound to miss one, not mention one, offend someone for forgetting one or we just don’t know about it yet. If any of the above apply then please comment below and we’ll add it to the list.
So, here goes, in no particular order (honest…)
New restaurant openings Edinburgh
Lovage, Blackfriars Street
Brothers Lukasz and Bartek Jedrejek are in the kitchen, a biomedical scientist and a Scran & Scallie chef bring a real gem to Edinburgh’s old town. Go there for creative dishes using quality Scottish produce plus an absolute steal of a lunch menu at £13.95 for two courses. We’ve recently reviewed for Olive magazine and gave it the big thumbs up.

From the folk who have already brought us The Apiary and Three Bird’s comes The Educated Flea. Continue reading
