One of the reasons I love living in Edinburgh is being able to walk everywhere, and after a night out on Friday a little stroll around the city is just what I needed to blow the cobwebs away.
Friday night’s dinner at Time 4 Thai on Friday night was excellent and was followed by cocktails at Lucky Liquor on Queens Street. First time there, I had a Blue Steel, vodka based with an interesting peppery after taste, and my friends opted for the Megawatt. After admiring the cool presentation we decided was a bit gimmicky and tasted a bit like a Smirnoff ice – taking us back to our younger drinking days!
Cakes (say hello, she’ll probably feature on here quite a lot) and I set off from Bruntsfield and walked down to Stockbridge where we joined the Water of Leith walkway all the way down to, you guessed it, Leith. We walked at what I like to call a gossiping pace and it took us just over 1 ½ hours.
We rewarded our efforts with some food and drinks at Bond No. 9. Sitting in the conservatory looking out at the sunshine and the canal was great, and their light bites deal was just what we were after. Two “light bites” and a cocktail for £12. We enjoyed haggis balls with mustard mayo, pitta breads and humus, lemon chicken skewers, and some more warm breads and oils.
