Burgers are one of my favourite foods (I thought they were everyone’s until I recently met a girl who didn’t like them, but that’s another story) particularly for the fact that something so simple can be so vastly characteristic from place to place. You’ve got the juicy number at Patty & Bun, the smoky soft Honest Burger, the oh so cheesy Five Guys…
You know those conversations that divide people over what combination of courses is best: whether you’re a starter and main sort of person, or a main and dessert person? Well, the correct combination is of course all of them. Specifically: five.
I’ve often wondered what it would be like to own a little food place of my own. And every time I’ve daydreamed about it, not once have I imagined calling it anything quite as unique as ‘Pillars of Hercules‘. What a name!
It didn’t take long for me to realise that Edinburgh has the same problem as London where there are just too many good places to eat and not enough time in the world to try them all. I asked the locals on Twitter for help and I was inundated with excited responses about where I just had to eat. Cue an intense sense of FOMO, how was I going to pick?!
Scotland is fast becoming my happy place. You know the old story of Town Mouse and Country Mouse? I’d say I was halfway between the two. For everyday living I’m Town Mouse through and through (as if I could live miles away from restaurants for a long period!) but the country is absolutely my go-to place for escapism and resetting. I suppose it is for a lot of people; there’s something so very relaxing a about a good view huh?
