Here are some of my meals from the past few days:
My first meal here in Edinburgh was lunch at The Witchery. I thought it might be touristy, but it a very nice restaurant in a 16th century building. I decided that this would be the perfect place to try haggis, and I wasn't disappointed at all. The service was excellent, but relaxed, and everything was fresh. Even the Tart Tatin was made fresh with a puff pastry crust.

|Haggis, neeps and tatties.|
|Nero D'avola. Always a good choice.|
I sent to La Piazza, planning on having pizza, but once I saw the specials, my plans changed.
|Tomato, mozzarella, onion and argula salad|
|Scallop and prawn ravioli with mussels and tomatoes.|
After that tour, I did some shopping, visited the Museum of Childhood, then grabbed an afternoon snack in the Story-telling Center before visiting John Knox House.
My final meal of the day was Fish & Chips from a real chippy shop after I was told the fish & chips I got the day before weren't "proper". He was right, these were MUCH better. Gorgie Fish Bar

|Salmon with Spinach, Potatoes, Turnips and Crispy Capers|
