On my last night in Edinburgh, I followed a recommendation from my friend Joanna and went to The Dogs, a really awesome restaurant in the new town of Edinburgh. I will go on record and say that this meal has made the top 5 best restaurant meals of my life. That’s not an easy list to make. The Dogs has a seasonal menu, but their sample menu boasts some amazing main dishes, such as ‘braised beef shin and cheek, with root vegetables and lemon zest’ and ‘braised lamb shank, horseradish and spelt stew, with fresh mint oil’. But as soon as we saw the menu, we knew exactly what we wanted. Pork belly, sage and onion stuffing, with butterbean stew. PORK BELLY. Only the most amazing cut of meat of all time. And that stew was truly delicious.
Seriously, if you’re in Edinburgh, please eat here. And then call me so we can talk about it. So good.
