Don’t get to Scotland’s second city much but I had been press ganged into a 3 day break in “Auld Reekie” by the She Devil to find that its still full of enthusiastic tourists being thoroughly fleeced by torn faced Edinburgh shop and bar keepers.
I had to make a trip to the Loon Fung at Stockbridge to celebrate all that’s old fashioned and good about Chinese food and I wasn’t disappointed especially by my all time fav starter steamed spare ribs in black bean sauce. Not a lot of eating in them but lots of sooking and an after taste you will never forget for the rest of your life. Scores a great 8!
That I have to say was the highlight of the stay apart from walking about the city taking great pleasure in pointing half of Japan to countless tourist attractions whilst locals made an art form of ignoring them. I’m not saying I’m in any way cynical about tourism in Edinburgh but when you get Pakistani’s selling kilts on The Royal mile I think its time to take stock.
Well the old adage that there is more fun at a Glasgow stabbing than there is at an Edinburgh wedding still holds water and I’m now thankfully, suitably ensconced back in the West none the worse for my ordeal.
