I was in edinburgh for the fringe, and stumbled upon this little shop whilst extraordinarily hungry at lunch time. It is in cockburn street, just next to high street, and I was drawn to it by the queue outside the door (always a good sign), and the smell. What smells nicer than a fresh baked potato? Well, I can think of a few things, but it is a very comforting food smell.
I went twice actually, such was the place’s greatness. And had the same thing both times.. anyway, “what did I eat?” I hear you ask. Well, I had the most amazing potato with an avocado salad (mushed avs, toms and cheese), which was such a revelation I have started making it myself (more anon.) And cottage cheese. The buttery potato, the delicious avocado and the garlicky butter. Lovely. Absolutely stunning in fact. And all for less than a fiver, and I didn’t need supper after that!
