Bridge 49 Cafe Bar & Bistro: Breakfast with a view. Situated on the Union Canal at Linlithgow you can watch barges float past while you tuck into a full breakfast. Great for lunch and dinner too. Recently won a regional award for best restaurant in Edinburgh and the Lothian’s.
Smoke Stack: Perfect place for brunch in central Edinburgh. Waiter sorted our problems quickly (cold waffles) and made a good latte, although they don’t have syrups.
Miller and Carter: I was pleasantly surprised how good the steak was being that it is a chain but would 100% go back. You do get a funny wedge of lettuce to start with… but a side portion of mac and cheese is a must! Also, follow them on social media – they are very good at communicating!
Bar Soba: A quirky venue on Hanover St, serving Pan Asian street food. It was recommended to me by my work colleague and I was so glad I went. Food is spicy so I would have water for the table if you are scared of spice like me (ha!) I got the chicken satay and I am already trying to get a date to go again – it was THAT GOOD. Fab cocktail menu too.
Sygn Bar: My go to place for food! It is always the top of my suggestions when anyone asks for recommendations. I love the mix and match style of this menu – It would definitely suits a picky eater like me. I would recommend the porkie fries, chicken and chorizo pizza and the haggis bon bons with a frozen candy cosmo on the side.
Boozy Cow (Stirling): Dining with no cutlery! (you can ask for it if needed) Basically handed a roll of kitchen roll and a tray of food to dive in to. It is a great place and the Edinburgh one is situated across from my work (it supplies my weekly Nutella milkshake fix) My personal favourite is the Philli cheese steak. For sides I get Onion rings the size of my face served with thousand island dip and skinny fries. You do have the option of sweet potato ones too but I ate so many I can no longer face them. Boozy milkshakes are a must here – Chocolate salty caramel balls is the best one (I have tried them all!)
Do you have any recommendations for where I should dine this month? TIA!
