If you are looking for homemade food with good energy: this is your place. The owner is just amazing and helps you in making your choice. Very friendly, halal, vegi, all well. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
