The correct ratio of toppings to chips 👍🏻 I’m so hungover I could demolish this all right now! If you’re in Edinburgh you should go to this wee pub just for the humongous nachos. They do veggie and vegan version too!
T minus one week until the launch of Seasoned Season 2, and we couldn’t be more excited! If you would like to join us for this culinary adventure in the amazing setting of butchers-turned-bicycle-shop Ronde, there are still a few tickets left for Friday 24th. We’d love to see you there!
So to address the wealth of messages again about people with their own options on how I should lead my lead I thought I would explain.
IV not decided by choice to be eating all this healthy food IV been posting. After a fortnight in hospital there was a reason they think IV been unable to put on weight and the reason IV lost all this weight, so I'd like to first start by saying big fuck you to those that may have been 'concerned' or just a plain dick, accusing me of having an eating disorder. Seriously you assholes, this displays proof that you have no idea what goes on behind closed doors and that you should perhaps stop sticking your dick nose into others businesses particularly with your batshit options.
I have to follow a new lifestyle change, and as I love my food this is a big change, I'm going to be that awkward person when we go out for dinner sorry, but I have goals I am determined to achieve before I get married.
Again a personal look into my life currently but as again people are sharing their own opinions again, and even spreading the most ludicrous rumours, I think this is a very good point to make about letting people get on with their lives.
That's my piece said and that's all il say about it.
Now I'm going to enjoy the hell outta my #dairyfree#cheeseyscrambleseggs dns #smokedsalmpn . Have a great day folks, and thinks only more day til til the weekend! #dairyfree#eggsandsalmon#eggsandcheese#edinburghfoodie#edinburgh#meatmad#toffeecoffee#yum#power#takeastand#smallvictories#lifechange#goals#edinburghlife
More Fringe food goodies 😆
With the weather taking a turn for the worse, basically sunny days maybe being behind us now? 😭 I’ve started craving all those warming winter foods- step in @jarvispickle
I braved the terrible rain on Sunday to pick up their Cauliflower Curry Pie- which is one of their two vegetarian options, from their local handmade pie selection 👌🏻
Perfect pastry is filled with Cauliflower, cashews and potataoes. Laced with lemon, chilli, ginger coconut milk and spices. The pie itself was so warm and comforting, and so packed with flavour! A more expensive food option, but well worth it for the quality, and portion size!
It’s served with the creamiest mashed potato and a delicious beetroot ketchup! As a massive ketchup lover (should I admit that? 🤷🏻♀️😅) I neeeed a beetroot ketchup in my life! I mean it must be healthier right? Recipe please!?
Don’t miss these guys if you are craving some good old fashion comfort food, made to a superb standard!
#ad - If you were to choose a cocktail that best represented Edinburgh, what would it be? @Sainsburys asked Scots which flavours were their favourite, and of course whisky and Irn Bru came out on top! They’ve put a Scottish twist on a classic cocktail to celebrate the release of their new range of cocktail ingredients.
Sainsbury’s have created nine new cocktail ingredients (including the bitters used in this cocktail) which come in handy 20cl and 35cl sizes, starting from just £5 so it’s really easy to make cocktails at home.
If you fancy whipping up an Edinburgh Irn Punch, all you’ll need is 50ml Sainsbury’s Blended Scotch Whisky, 10ml Irn Bru syrup (reduce 500ml Irn Bru by half then add 100g sugar and stir until dissolved, bottle and refrigerate) and 12 drops of Sainsbury’s Bitters. Stir in a tumbler filled with ice, and top with a garnish of twisted orange peel. Cheers! #SainsburysGBCocktails

Nervously waiting for our certificate of science from #briancox now that we’ve our hands on a dissolved oxygen analyser. Let us explain. We don’t use preservatives, or owt artificial, so we need to get all of the oxygen out of our tins to keep our soda nice and fresh.
Мне просто почему-то очень нравится эта фоточка ☺️ В Эдинбурге в плане ресторанов я не очень много где побывала, но вот доехать до Fishers действительно стоило. Вообще мы потащились туда от скуки, потому что все интересующие нас места в городе мы уже посмотрели, а тем временем у нас было еще 1,5 дня и ни одной съеденной устрицы. Чтобы есть морепродукты, хорошо бы доехать, собственно, до моря – подумали мы и сели на автобус, на котором катились еще добрых полчаса по не самым живописным пейзажам. За пределами центра Эдинбург совсем не так привлекателен, должна я вам сказать.
Кстати интересный факт – в эдинбургских автобусах у водителей нет наличности. То есть вообще никакой, даже чтобы сдачи дать. Перед водителем стоит машинка, в которую надо бросать монетки, причем меньше кинуть, конечно же, нельзя, а вот больше – пожалуйста. Так автомат обокрал меня на 10 пенсов посреди бела дня, а водитель впридачу нарычал за тупость (а я, конечно, немного нарычала на него, подумав, что это как в Ланкастере – весь день ездил, а сдачи не набрал, только в Ланкастере наличность у них по идее иметься должна). В общем автобус оказался очень стрессовым мероприятием 😂
Even though I haven’t been to too many food places in Edinburgh, the Fishers restaurant was definitely worth commuting to! To be honest we went there out of boredom, as we have already checked out all the places we were interested in, meanwhile we had 1,5 days left and 0 oysters consumed, so we caught the bus and started our not very impressive 30 minute journey. I have to admit that Edinburgh is not so picturesque outside the city center 😅
By the way an interesting fact – bus drivers in Edinburgh don’t have cash. I mean even coins for giving the change, which was a huge surprise to me. Instead there is a special machine at the entrance, which of course doesn’t let you put in less coins, but happily eats excessive ones. That’s how I was officially robbed for 10 pence in the middle of the day 🤷🏻♀️😂 Watch out, buses are much more stressful than you think 😂#лягушкапутешественница#путевыезаметки#анонимныеобжоры#критикантересторанте#критиканте_в_англии#приключения_критиканте_в_англии
With the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in full swing & the fact that the hub of food trucks is right outside the doors to uni, it’s difficult not to indulge. So that’s what I do. If you’ve followed me for awhile you know I’m cutting, but that doesn’t mean I have to avoid eating out.
Check out my blog post on how to track macros while eating out. Quick tip? Guesstimate. Link in my bio now! ➡️ 🍟🍔🌮🍕🍝
When I ate this @thebuffalotruck fried chicken sandwich, I found the @kfc nutritional information & used that. When I had these tacos, I used the Baja tacos macros in the database of #mikesmacros . When I had gelato, I used @talenti macros. Not totally accurate but good enough. 👌🏻
🚨New Edinburgh restaurant news 🚨⠀
* Thrive, a new vegan and vegetarian restaurant, has opened in Bruntsfield. The restaurant serves inventive ways of creating dishes without using animal products, like chocolate mousse made with avocado chocolate, mac ‘n’ peas made with a cashew and cauli cheeze sauce and house wings made from tempura-battered cauliflower.⠀
* Wrapchic has opened on Princes Street under the Costa Coffee by Primark. The menu is Mexican/Indian fusion, with dishes like burritos, bowls and wraps with fillings such as chicken methi and paneer masala. There are already Wrapchic outlets in England and Dubai and there are plans to open a second Edinburgh branch in Ocean Terminal with further Scottish branches in the pipeline.⠀
* A new restaurant is opening on top of Calton Hill and it sounds spectacular - it will be partially suspended over Calton Hill’s northwest slope with floor to ceiling glass windows and panoramic views across Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth. The restaurant will be called The Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage and is a partnership with Gardner's Cottage and an organisation called Collective. Collective are re-developing the City Observatory site on Calton Hill into a new home for contemporary art and the restaurant will be a part of this. An opening date will be announced later this year.
Another great night at the Edinburgh Festival. My Dad turns 60 at the end of the month so we took him to see @newsrevue and @foilarmsandhog
Both shows were incredible and hilarious and it's great that you can see them time and time again as they both bring out completely new material each year.
Dinner was at @apiaryrestaurantedinburgh, first time there but won't be the last. Delicious food, great range including vegan and gluten free options and a lovely atmosphere. Top customer service too.
I love Edinburgh and can't believe how lucky we are to have the @edfringe on our doorstep. I asked Ali to take a selfie without ruining the photo for once, at least it's a good one of me and Dad 😂
Kim’s Mini Meals is one of those places that I’ve been walking by for years and have always meant to go but never got around to it. I finally went last night and it was fantastic; the food was delicious, service was swift and really friendly, prices were incredibly reasonable and the portions generous (these meals are not mini!). A few things to note: they only open 5.30-9 (last orders 8.30), you can’t book so there will likely be a little wait outside for a table (it’s worth it), it’s cash only and they aren’t licensed (but you can BYOB and they have a range of interesting soft drinks, I tried the Korean pear juice!). To start (swipe to see!) we shared gamja jeon (a pancake made with potato and spring onion), japchae (sweet potato glass noodles stir fried with veggies and a little beef) and fried aubergine (not pictured, sorry!). For main I had beef bibimbap (mixed rice topped with veggies, red pepper paste, beef mince and an egg served in a hot stone bowl). I will definitely be visiting again soon! 🍚 #littleladyofleith
