Scotland’s cuisine is sometimes thought to be a bit of a weak point within our culture, but I’m here to say that that’s totally unfair! We seem to have everything covered, from iconic main meals to really good desserts, there’s even a wee alcoholic drink that you may have heard of too. All of Scotland’s tasty foods come together in the capital city; Edinburgh, a place where everyone can find a huge array of authentic local dishes and international delights.
The thing I love most about my city is that some of the best restaurants in Edinburgh can be hidden down windy alleyways and unassuming places, there’s just no-knowing what you’re going to find when you’re exploring these streets. Even still, my Edinburgh food guide aims to cut out the middleman and tell you exactly what you don’t want to be missing and where you don’t want to be missing it.
I’ll be naming just a wee selection of the must-eat food in Edinburgh, whilst taking you to some of my all-time favorite spots that I’ve found through extensive research (and eating). So, whether you’ve just touched down in the city or you just want to find some new places to eat, you’re going to love my personal what and where to eat in Edinburgh guide!
