Simply the best tacos in town. Great food. Great margaritas (shaken recommended). Great music. No bookings taken, and it does get busy, but you can put your name down and go across the street to Bon Vivant for a pre-meal cocktail (they even have suggested cocktails for those waiting for an El Cartel table).

Fantastic pizza and you can either go and eat in their lovely restaurant, order it for delivery at home or, if you are at The Joker & The Thief on Leith Walk, order it and have it with your pint of Tennent's (they serve it up on a platter, and provide napkins etc....amazing!). The Vesuvio is my firm favourite!

For collection or delivery, Eatalia is a long-standing, family-run place that does a great line in Italian and Scottish classic fast food, including haggis supper with salt & sauce, or arancini.

Drinks
There are loads of bars and pubs in Edinburgh.....here are some of my favourites...
A wonderful selection wine and extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff. They always have wine flights, which change quite regularly and come with the option of cheese pairings (they did chocolate pairings at Easter!). The food is also excellent, including a great range of cheese and charcuterie, as well as the incredible Edward & Irwyn chocolate (the honeycomb is mindblowing....also available from their shop in Morningside).

Shopping
Local shopping recommendations to meet at least some of your needs...
Sustainable grocery shopping at its finest. Locally sourced produce (including milk in glass bottles, fresh eggs and incredible bread), take a jar, tub etc and fill it up with whatever you need (pasta, lentils, flour, seeds, nuts, shampoo.....). Don't worry if you don't have a jar/tub they have a supply of 'karmic jars' that you can use.

On a nice day, at any time of year, the Botanics are a great place to visit. As well as wandering around these beautiful gardens, there are amazing glasshouses, a cafe and a shop, as well as being able to catch glimpses of the city and castle. Check out their website - they commonly have things going on (e.g., Christmas at the Botanics (light installations) and the Luna cinema).

여행 팁

교통편
Edinburgh has a great public transport system...
Lothian buses: £4 day ticket for the city; £1.70 for a single journey. You can either pay cash (no change given) or by contact-less payment. Edinburgh tram: a good option for getting from the airport to the city centre. Pay before getting on board though! Airlink bus: Probably the most cost-effective way to travel between the airport and the city. The service runs 24h and is an express service. City cabs: there are lots of taxi companies in the city, but this is the one that I would recommend for reliability, friendly and knowledgeable drivers. Just Eat bikes: get the app.....they are all over the city and a great way to get around and see the city.
