We quite like Japanese food at the Towers so imagine when Yo Sushi knocked on the door one day and offered up a HUGE takeaway so that we could sample their new #tokyotogo takeaway menu! Back of the net. Happy days.
With very little hesitation required we perused the menu ‘online’ and placed our order. Although unable to deliver (hrmph) we jumped in the Monkfish Motor and headed up to Harvey Nichols Yo Sushi to pick up the goodies. Continue reading →
With Dominic Jack at the pass, Castle Terrace Edinburgh stands alone thanks to the innovative cuisine and the exceptional service.
One of the kingpins of the Edinburgh fine-dining scene over the last few years, Castle Terrace continues to deliver exquisite dishes in its newly refurbed contemporary dining room at the foot of Edinburgh castle. Part of the renowned Kitchin group, it stands alone thanks to the innovative food that chef Dominic Jack brings to the table. Continue reading →
One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had in Edinburgh.
Dining at the newly opened Norn*(in the site of the old Plumed Horse) is incredible and a few hours of your life that you will savour for a very long time.
With great consideration for ingredients, seasonality, and sourcing, and a focus on creativity Norn has a clear edge on other restaurants in town. Forget white tablecloths and hushed voices – the Rolling Stones are playing on the jukebox, the front of house have very cool moss linen aprons and you’ll get a visit from each of the chefs in the kitchen over the course of your meal. It feels young, different and very exciting.
Enjoy the extremely reasonable 3 course lunch for £20 otherwise indulge yourself in the 4 or 7 course tasting menus (with the option of matching wines.
Sherry and tapas, probably two of my favourite things so when an opportunity comes up for a sherry tasting (on world tapas day** of all days!) with Bodegas Urium and some tasty accompanying tapas created by the team at Goya23, Edinburgh, nothing was going to keep me away!
I know a little bit about sherry. I know I like it, quite a lot! I’ve spent some quality time in Andalucia and have visited some bodegas in Jerez. I’ve eaten plenty of tapas in Jerez, Cadiz, Vejer de la Frontera and have always matched them with a sherry. Usually a chilled Fino on a very hot day. I’ve a very good friend who lives in Vejer who is a sherry ambassador (Annie Manson) and she has imparted some in depth knowledge to me on my travels about the wonderful world of sherry.
I love that sherry pairs so brilliantly with food whether it be fish, seafood, charcuterie, cheese, dessert. Continue reading →

The Easyjet inflight mag told you a wee bit but it didn’t really tell you about the cool spots, the inside secrets, the places you would only know about if you had some inside info (or very good friends who live, breathe and EAT Edinburgh) did it?

BIG BLU PIZZA AT THE PITT STREET MARKET
We guess it’s not much of a secret if you know Edinburgh street food vans but the Big Blu Van doesn’t show up that often in the city which is why it’s made this list. Continue reading →
