Bistro Moderne, Edinburgh

Having dined at Restaurant Mark Greenaway a couple of times, I knew that I had to try his new(ish) venture – Bistro Moderne.  Situated in the old Cafe Fish (previously Zanzero) in Stockbridge it was an easy dander for us one Sunday lunchtime.  I had heard great things already, especially about the Sunday lunch so…

Burger Meats Bun (meets Belly!)

Friday seen the opening of the latest venture by Glasgow’s Burger Meats Bun people in Edinburgh.  BMB Edinburgh occupies the former residence of Urban Angel on Forth Street and as luck would have it, today we passed here at lunchtime!  We had been meaning to visit the Glasgow branch for a while, so it was…

Edinburgh Larder Bistro

Last week myself and a few friends headed along to the Edinburgh Larder Bistro in a basement on the corner of Alva Street.  I have driven passed it many times and at last had an excuse to go. We were also fortunate to spot on LivingSocial a voucher – 2 courses and a glass of…

Pomegranate

A drizzly grey day in Edinburgh, just before Christmas seen Stuart and I pop into Pomegranate on Antigua Street for a late lunch. We were warmly welcomed into the bright and cheery restaurant, just what we needed to break through the greyness! Pomegranate is the sister restaurant of Hanam’s up near the Castle, which is…

Earthy Foods

Today we ventured out of the North side of Edinburgh and made the trip across town to the South Side…. which really isn’t that big a journey, its just we never go there! One of the reasons we went was to visit Earthy Foods on Ratcliffe Terrace, we have read reviews and articles about it…

Put your First Foot forward

Happy New Year!! I had a lovely evening here in Edinburgh bringing in the new year with some good friends, over tons of lovely food and the odd glass of vino.  We managed to leave the warmth of our flat and walk across to Inverleith Park to see the fireworks at Edinburgh Castle, which were…

Afternoon Tea at the Botanics

  I love Tea, I am a Tea Ginny – fact. I also love Afternoon Tea, I just love all the little goodies that you get – such a wide choice of naughtiness! My parents are coming to the end of their stay with us and they are also Tea Ginnys, my mum especially being…
