After spending half a day touring around the city, the question that you’re probably going over in your head is, “where to eat in Edinburgh?”. If you walk down any street, you’re sure to pass dozens of unique cafes and enticing restaurants, making it even more difficult to settle on just one (especially if you’re only in Edinburgh for a day and/or if you’re the worst decision maker when it comes to food.. Guilty!). Here are a few options of where you can grab some grub in this city.
Looking for a hot new restaurant to check out? Look no further than The Continental in Pacific Place. This restaurant, owned by Swire Hotels, has taken over the space that once housed Domani. If you ever had the opportunity to eat at Domani, you would know that the atmosphere, decor, and food did not disappoint; The Continental is no exception.

As part of this partnership, Foodie had 90 burgers to give away from Blue Butcher for lunch over three days. I was lucky and quick enough to get a hold of one of these freebies!

If you have a day to spend wandering about the city, there are a handful of tourist attractions you can visit during the day and some great restaurants and bars to check out at night. They are all within walking distance, unless you’re incredibly lazy or are on the verge of heatstroke and can’t bear to walk another step. If that’s the unfortunate case, there are plenty of tricycles haphazardly about the streets that will take you to any of the locations below for a nominal fee.
You’ve been living and working in Hong Kong for well over a year now and are starting to notice some changes (or you are completely oblivious to them and your friends are not-so-kindly pointing them out to you): either a magician has waved his magical wand and miraculously made this crazy city irritate you less, or -let’s face the truth here- you’re becoming more like a local.
