Edinburgh From The Top » »

 

After a whole day exploring the grounds and undergrounds of Edinburgh, we headed to Leith for our first night out.

 

 

With the help of the Scottish expert Even, we began our night with some fine Scottish Glemorangie Whiskey at The Granary:

 

 

And after saying our goodbyes to Eve, we checked into our 9:30pm reservations at The Kitchin, arguably Scotland’s best and most renowned fine dining restaurant. Ironic, because how does a group of 4 people staying at the cheapest hostel in Scotland also get to experience its most well-renowned fine dining restaurant? But that’s how we do it baby.

It’s also famous for being helmed by chef Tom Kitchin where at the age of 29, he became the world’s youngest winner of the coveted Michelin Star. 

 

 

We opted for the “Surprise” Seasonal and Classic Tasting Menus for 85£ each, where we made a team effort to try almost all the dishes Tom Kitchin could throw at us.

At the beginning of the meal they will provide you with the best they can do for a “surprise menu”: a map of Scotland and the locations from where all of his dishes have been sourced.

 

 

Let’s begin:
