When it comes to fine dining, it doesn’t get better than our very own MP’s Bistro. With an autumn menu to dine for, our award-winning chef combines the very best of traditional Scottish hospitality with freshly grown local produce – turning every dish into a delightful treat. But if you’re in the mood for some other local favourites, we’re counting down our five favourite places to eat in Edinburgh.
Mum’s The Word
If you’ve got a hankering for bangers and mash, then MUMS Great Comfort Food on Forrest Road is an absolute must. This little gem has a belly-busting variety of sausages for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. Served with creamy mash potatoes and thick, beefy gravy, it’s one of the best-kept hidden places to eat in Edinburgh. Using only the very best local produce and suppliers whenever possible, MUMS has been serving up top nosh at half the price since 2010.
Birds Of A Feather
Feeling peckish? Cluck up the courage and try the Suicide Wings Challenges at Wings on Fishmarket Close. Taking speciality-menus to the next level, this unique Edinburgh haunt serves up generous portions of wings, wings and more wings. With over 40 different rubs and sauces at budget-friendly prices, it’s no wonder loyal locals are dying to make it onto the Wall of Flame.
Dinner By Process Of Elimination
If you’re looking for places to eat in Edinburgh that are below the radar, Aizle’s will take everything you know about the run-of-the-mill restaurant and turn it on its head. Void of a traditional menu (a frightfully unique concept in the UK), 100%-customised dinners are created through a process of elimination. Presented with a list of potential ingredients, you simply cross off the ones you don’t want. Chef Stuart Ralston then cooks up an authentic, off-the-cuff dining treat using the freshest ingredients from their newest “Harvest”.
Bringing Home The Bacon
The only thing better than bacon, is more bacon. Pig in a Poke is the perfect Hogroast takeaway in the city. Their delicious artisan rolls are stuffed with mouth-watering, 18-hour, slow roasted pork … with all the fixings. When it comes to double-comfort-soul-food, it doesn’t get better than this.
Milking It For All It’s Worth
If you’re in the mood for something sweet, make sure you hit the hottest PG-rated bar in town. Mary’s Milk Bar is one of the best places to eat in Edinburgh for all things chocolate coated. Mary’s truffles pride themselves on their soft, juicy centres and unusual, tasty flavours. From Sweet Potato and Maple Syrup Roasted Pecan Nut, to Salted Caramel, scoop up the best gelatos in Edinburgh with a variety of new flavours and infinite possible ways to enjoy them.
