Last Month I took a wee weekend trip to Edinburgh, With a fab bunch of people who were great to spend the weekend with. The trip mostly consisted of drinking in little pubs listening to live music, laughing and eating lots of food. What’s not to love.
Brunching in Urban Angel was a dream: When we arrived on the friday after having a mooch around and going to the gallery, We were on a mission to find good food,
and heard good things about this place. If you hadn’t heard about it from someone else or looked it up online you probably wouldn’t find it, sat back from Princes
Street and away from the hustle and bustle, it sat
in all its glory. It wasn’t a big place but good things come in little packages right?
The food was SCRUMMY. (Heart Eye Emoji) The quality was amazing, and you could defiantly tell it was all well grown and %100 good food all round.
BUBBA Q: Completely different to Urban Angel: On the last day when we were trying to decide where to go for food, We were all a bit, well, Hangry. We stumbled into this place, Which we had past a million times since we’d been there. Up on the royal mile, There is just a simple doorway with a signpost down to the stairs. This place was amazing! perfect for fixing our hangry state. Reasonably priced and the food portion was HUGE. Similar to a american take on things, a small restaurant which was friendly and laid-back, quick service and filled you up so you could never look at another burger again.
It was mainly meat, so not so great for a veggie. But SO Delish!
Street Food was handy: Because we were only there for a few days we wanted to get as much as possible done, see as much as we could. And a lot of the things we did were free which was handy for our bank accounts, The gallery and Museum and walking round Princes Street Gardens! Grabbing some Street food was perfect as we could sit in the sun and catch a few rays before going on to the next stop.
Our hotel, which was a premier inn HUB, was in the old town part of Edinburgh, Which was handy because we could walk just about everywhere. The Royal mile was a 2 minute walk away and it was full of tourists, restaurants and shops and every
5 minutes we’d pass someone playing the bagpipes, All very Scottish. It was a great weekend away. For my second visit to Edinburgh I got to see some new places but also went back to old ones, Highlight of the trip had to be going back to Edinburgh Zoo and seeing the Pandas, which I didn’t get to see the last time. And also being away with such a nice group made it all more enjoyable.
