I’ve been living that low carb life again of late. Like for so many others I find it such a good way to drop a few pesky pounds and lose the bloat. Very handy for special occasions! But as always low carb means no sugar, and no sugar means me climbing the walls in need of something sweet. Nothing quite like a deprived sweet tooth to inspire some creativity!
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?!
