My student days may be long gone but I can still hold my own with students when it comes to drinking margaritas so I was delighted to be invited to join some other bloggers and influencers for the Great Student Taco-over at Diablo Loco on Edinburgh’s southside last week.
I’m already a fan of Civerinos. I love the ‘slice’ concept – more places should offer it – but I have also been known to enjoy their full 20” pizza. (Not alone!) Civerinos offer many varied toppings that keep me coming back, with a core selection and daily specials always available by the slice.
It is no secret that I love the work of chef Rosario at Locanda de Gusti. His restaurant is not just Italian but Neapolitan. It’s so good, it’s been awarded a plate of authenticity by an Italian body. Last Monday, I joined other bloggers and food writers to celebrate the real taste of Italy (#RealTasteofItaly).
I’m exaggerating. It takes more than 90 seconds from start to finish to order and prepare the pizza, but the cooking process only takes a minute and a half. I think it took us five minutes from setting foot in the restaurant to sitting down, pizzas in hand.
What? Let me start from the beginning.
Pizza, pasta and prosecco was enough to drag me out of my sick-bed last night for the launch of Vapiano on South St David Street, despite my heavy cold.
The third Thursday of November is the release date for Beaujolais Noveau, the young, juicy red wine. To celebrate, we went to Bar a vin,
Kerry joined bloggers and other regulars at Navadhanya for a winter tasting and menu preview.
It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas when I went along to a preview of all things festive at the Pompadour at the Waldorf Astoria, Edinburgh last night.
On the Day of the Dead, also known as All Saints Day, I went along to the launch of a new Mexican bar, Diablo Loco, on South Clerk Street for a tequila soaked journey into the hottest fiesta this side of Tijuana.
