When in Scotland… Eat Haggis!

You’ve probably gathered by now that I really like food, and so it will come as no surprise that in the lead up to my trip to Edinburgh I spent a reasonable amount of time researching places to eat. However, we ended up going to none of the places that I had looked at – choosing instead to follow our stomachs on the day, rather than plan everything in advance.

Thomas’s of York Pub and Kitchen, York

Thomas’s of York Pub and Kitchen claims to be York’s quirkiest pub, which is no small claim given the large number of pubs in York (there’s supposedly one for every day of the year!). However, I think they might be right. I’ve certainly never been anywhere quite like it!

Hummus Bros, Soho, London

I like to plan. I’m also from a rural area and big cities can sometimes overwhelm me, so when visiting somewhere like London, I always make sure I have a reasonable idea of where I am going to go and what I am going to do in my time there. When I went for a short break a couple of years ago, I trawled through a range of guidebooks in my local library for recommendations of places to go and things to see. Whilst I am happier to be more spontaneous now, I’m so glad I planned for this trip, as it was how I first discovered and visited Hummus Bros. It appeared to be quite a small and quirky place, with great reviews on TripAdvisor, so I decided to try it out for some lunch. I was not disappointed and as a result it was top of my list…
