A Gourmet Lunch at number one at The Balmoral Hotel

A colleague emailed round number one’s Christmas lunch menu and from the minute I read it I knew I was going, and I knew a couple of other ladies who would need little persuading to join me! So AVM, Strawberry Blonde and I decided we’d do things properly and booked the Friday off work so […]

Eating Edinburgh – where HAVE I been? (a wee update)

Hello all and a very big Happy New Year to you all! As you may have noticed Eating Edinburgh has been rather quiet over the past few weeks, nothing sinister just a rather hectic pre festive dining schedule and a rather good holiday overseas but I’m back now and normal service should resume shortly.

La Tasca’s ‘Unlimited Tapas for £10’ deal! (their best yet!)

It’s fair to say we were pretty content, we feasted to bursting and had a couple of bottles of very serviceable red to wash everything down and all for £20 per head!

Hawke & Hunter’s new all-day Menu

All for the sake of the blog, (who am I trying to kid? we were making the most out of the opportunity!) we did manage to cover off almost half of the menu and I certainly wouldn’t have any hesitation going back and trying the rest of it. There were a lot of lovely touches and the staff were great but I especially loved the cleverly thought out seasonal menu. The prices are in line with city centre standards but the 2 for 1 offer makes it exceptionally good value. True, it didn’t cost us anything and they knew we were going to be there to review it but to be fair everyone else seemed to be enjoying their lunches just as much! Would I put my hand in my own pocket and return? Without doubt although I wouldn’t perhaps be so greedy!
