Hawksmoor Edinburgh, steak and seafood restaurant with affordable prices

Hawksmoor Edinburgh is a grand restaurant located in a former Royal Bank of Scotland banking hall building on St. Andrew Square. That is a central part of Edinburgh with nice restaurants and shops around the square. It is an impressive space with a high ceiling and lots of space. The reasonable prices for lunch gave us good reason to go laughing to the bank.

Bertie’s Fish & Chips in Edinburgh and Anstruther in Fife

Bertie’s Fish & Chips Edinburgh and Anstruther Fish Bar in Fife were two of the fish and chip shops that we tried during our trip to Scotland earlier this year. Fish and chips is a prominent type of British food. It is also a common dish in Singapore. We like it but it was not one that we would get passionate about. But that was before we tried them at the these places in Scotland. One of them is said to be among the best fish and chip shops in UK.

Fhior Edinburgh – modern restaurant with beautiful food

Fhior Edinburgh was one of the restaurants we tried on our recent visit to the capital city of Scotland UK. According to their website, Fhior is an adaptation of the word for  ‘true’ in Gaelic. It opened in June 2018. There are not many Edinburgh restaurants with Michelin-stars. The last time I checked there are only two one-star restaurants. Fhior Edinburgh is not one of them but it shows up quite often when we searched for the best restaurants in Edinburgh.

Where to eat haggis in Edinburgh? Our haggis, neeps and tatties lunch at Howies Victoria

Apart from questions on sightseeing, we also had to decide where to eat haggis in Edinburgh on our first trip there. Our search ended with the Howies Restaurant, Victoria Street Edinburgh.  Haggis is a classic Scottish dish containing various parts of sheep. It has acquired quite a reputation as various parts of the animal (including its internal organs) are used so that nothing goes to waste. The “spare parts” are traditionally simmered in sheep’s stomach. Nowadays, it seems that it is more commonly cooked in a casing (like a sausage). Sounds disgusting, which made us even more curious.
