Tex Mex II has a garish storefront that may scare you aware before you get in. Persevere, traveller, and you'll get the best Mexican food in Edinburgh. Also worth checking out their delicious (but dangerous) frozen margaritas.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
