Lunchtime snacks on the Shore, Edinburgh

Shore Deli Fritata

Shore Deli Fritata

I’ve recently been spending more time in Leith so have been exploring the best places for lunch. After one truly awful piece of quiche in one establishment, I came across the Shore Deli close by Martin Wishart’s restaurant in Fleur’s old premises.

The Shore DeliIt’s quickly become a firm favourite of mine. You’ll know by now that I rarely eat sandwiches and am always on the lookout for something delicious to eat instead. Choice is often limited, but at the Shore Deli, I’ve certainly got lots of choice.

Their fritata is light, fluffy and tasty and stuffed with vegetables. It comes with either the house salad (which is well-dressed) or with a choice from their 4 or 5 mixed salads that feature each day – these have plenty of ingredients that the inspired chef has put together.  On days when you’re feeling very hungry or if you have a large appetite, try the BBQ pulled pork and coleslaw. This comes in a wrap or, if you prefer, in a bun. It’s all pulled pork should be, soft and juice and the coleslaw a perfect foil. Truth to tell the portion size is just that bit big for me!

Most recently, I just fancied some soup. The chicken soup had that home made quality (in the best way possible) and was stuffed full of meat and vegetables in lovely meaty stock. There are a few tables inside so you can linger a while, and if the weather holds, sit outside and gaze over the water.

What do I love about the Shore Deli? The friendly welcome you always get. The delicious ever changing menu. The reasonable prices and although I am yet to buy something from it the small, yet perfectly formed products to purchase which includes fresh eggs, flours, biscuits and more.
