Bar Bites Along the Walk
Yesterday’s adventure to the Old City, Calton Hill (some classic architectural monuments), Old Calton Cemetery and the Royal Mile was a wonderful walk in the city. Here is just one of the places we partook of the flavors in Edinburgh.
Monteiths bar & restaurant was a perfect spot to shake off the chill of the foggy afternoon and enjoy some tasty treats. A small groove covered the path down an alley or close as they are called in Edinburgh leading to this wonderful place.
We indulged in some spirits, a strawberry puree drink called a “Ketel Skittles” and a few March of the Penguins smooth creamy stouts. Both delightful drinks while cold and refreshing brought warmth to our bodies.
The experience would not have been complete without having some dishes to fill the bellies. Fish fingers and tartar, homemade chips, and baked cheese and croutons hit the nail on the head. The fish was more like eating a boneless filet. The chips hot and tender through and through. And the croutons and cheese was like dipping a neat little piece of toast into a pool of cheese that would match anything in front of you.
We had a great day and walk around the city and look forward to sharing more of what we saw.
