Like most UK cities, Edinburgh is really big on burgers. New burger joints are springing up all over town. I've tried a few and definitely have my favourites. I was invited along to Foundry 39 on Queensferry Street by Leda who was invited along to review them for the student newspaper (you can read her review here) and I was excited by its really full menu and really central location. Perfect if you're on Princes Street doing some shopping!
We arrived on a Thursday night and the restaurant/bar was quiet but still had a lovely atmosphere. With mismatched decor and bare light bulbs this place has a really cosy, intimate feel to it. Pairing that with their really in depth cocktail menu and we were off to a great start. Cocktails in Edinburgh can be expensive but personally I'm willing to pay for quality. I started off with a smoked rhubarb and rosemary daiquiri and Leda opted for the watermelon collins. Both such unique flavours! And lovely presentation as well. The cocktail menu was not only extensive but also very unique.
