The Scottish capital is a great city for eating, and there are lots of affordable places, too. Here are some of the best.
Pork lovers will fall in love with Oink, where you will find a whole roast pig in the window. The meat is used for a series of buns that cost as little as $4, so you really can’t go wrong. If you don’t want the bread, get the Hog in a Box for $7.
Another good spot for comfort food is Meltmongers, which makes delicious cheese toasties with loads of different fillings. Get a sandwich for $9 or add some fries for a couple of dollars more.
Kampung Ali is a big favorite with locals for its $7 lunchtime special, with Malaysian classics dominating the menu. You can add a starter for $3, too, if you’re extra hungry.
One for the veggies, Union of Genius is a great soup restaurant on Forrest Road. They also have a van serving around the city. Choose from a huge array of $5–8 soups for a great winter warmer.
For amazing value curry, check out the Mosque Kitchen. This place used to serve worshippers in the mosque,e but opened its doors to the public in 2001. You can get a hot meal here for as little as $5.
Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
