Here’s a highlight of what to eat in Edinburgh:
Under the Stairs
Low ceilings and mix-matched leather sofas creates this place’s unique and cosy atmosphere. It’s a busy bar too so sometimes at peak times and especially at weekends it can get very very crowded. The menu is diverse and delicious and they have excellent deals in the weekdays for those of you who love a bargain. Under the Stairs is on Merchant Street, right in the city centre. If you’re looking to continue the night after dinner then check out their extensive cocktail menu.
A traditional Spanish Tapas restaurant that certainly deserves to be on any list of what to eat in Edinburgh. Their Tapas Banquet menu at 15 pounds per person is excellent value and I can guarantee that you won’t fit in a desert after. For something less extravagant you can pick and choose your favourites and send them down with one of their excellent and reasonably priced Spanish reds.
The one and only for Fish and Chip lovers in Edinburgh. This place has the freshest haddock in town and their British staple is second to none. You’ll often see people queuing outside this place to get their portion and you can either take your fish supper home or eat in in their no-frills restaurant.
This place serves up Scottish comfort food at its very best. Choose from Cullen skink (creamy smoked haddock soup), haggis or lamb stew to get a real taste of what Scottish grub is really about. All that in a beautifully antique pub-style atmosphere with some of the best Scottish ales and Whiskeys to wash it down with. A must for anyone who wants to try traditional Scottish cuisine.
A major city wouldn’t be the same without a decent Sushi joint, and Sushija is that. It’s tiny, but you’re served by a woman wearing a kimono and Japanese TV is showing on the various TVs dotted around the room. The Sushi is excellent, make sure you try out their Rainbow Roll.
take a load off and take it down a few notches with a drink at the Starbank Inn on Laverockbank Road. This stone built pub overlooks the Firth of Forth and offers up a selection of real ales, standard lagers and stocky Scottish food. If you’re here in the winter this is the perfect place to warm your cockles with a pint of ale and some haggis.
