The Fishmarket Newhaven, a modern seaside-eating house, has been created by two stalwarts of the Edinburgh seafood scene – Gary Welch, owner of Welch Fishmongers, and Roy Brett, chef patron of renowned fish restaurant Ondine.


What’s the vibe?

The Fishmarket shouts “seaside” inside and out. It’s based in the old fishmarket in Newhaven which dates back to 1896 and was previously a filleting unit for Welch’s Fishmongers next door. It’s been transformed in to a takeaway chippie and a sit-down restaurant with white-tiled walls, an unrivalled view of the sea and front-of-house staff wearing breton t-shirts.

What’s the food like?

At the takeaway, traditional battered, breaded or grilled fish comes in standard, large or ‘whale’ size. There’s haddock, cod, sole or a choice of crispy squid, scampi or monkfish. Classic sides of mushy peas, tartare sauce and buttered bread rolls and there’s even ‘wee haddie’ for the kids. Batter is light and crispy and the fish melts in the mouth.

27 ELLIOTT’S EDINBURGH

27 Elliott’s EDINBURGH

27 ELLIOTT'SSage Eggs at 27 Elliott’s Edinburgh, Photograph by Matt Russell 

In a nutshell: Founded by cookbook author Jess Elliott Dennison, 27 Elliott’s is a small, neighbourhood café in Edinburgh’s Southside serving seasonal breakfast, lunch and soon-to-launch supper clubs.

Who’s cooking? Jess is in the kitchen,having previously worked for Stoats Porridge and Jamie Oliver’s food and homeware range. 

What’s the vibe? Laidback in leafy surrounds, with sharing tables, long benches and a great window seat. Serving food on locally crafted, hand-thrown ceramics, 27 Elliott’s is all about celebrating Scotland’s best produce in an accessible, seemingly effortlessly cool way. 

What’s the food like? A weekly changing menu, scrawled on a blackboard, follows the seasons and embraces local producers wherever possible – think organic milk, sourdough loaves from a nearby bakery, coffee from an Edinburgh roastery. You won’t find much meat on the menu – but for those that eat it, you won’t miss it.

Breakfast dishes of sage-fried eggs with lemony greens and crunchy sourdough toast, and bay-roasted cherries, strained yogurt, toasted almonds and honey are moreish.

Lunch plates including red-wine-braised butter beans and herby aioli, and orange-braised carrots, herb-flecked pearl barley, cranberries and walnuts really show off Jess’s creative cookery skills. There are pickles and ferments, too, as well as fresh pasta with homemade ricotta.

What’s the vibe like?

With exposed stone walls and leather banquettes the restaurant has an upmarket feel akin to its two sister restaurants in Market Street and Leith. Interior-design lovers will love the work that’s gone into the extensive refurb, from the cast iron radiators to the stunning marble green bar top which gives the restaurant a luxurious bistro feel. The vibe is casual, unstuffy and very cool for this part of town.

THE CHEESE…AND THE BAXTERS CHUTNEY

CHEESE & BAXTERS CHUTNEY TASTING AT BAXTERS HQ!

One minute I’m in the gym leg pressing a 160kg (personal best!) the next I’m eating Baxters Chutney. Here’s how….

The phone rings…it’s one of those ‘shall I, shan’t I’ moments when you’re in the zone and work calls can wait or at least go to voicemail for half an hour.

However,  Mrs Monkfish is, to quote Fireman Sam, ‘always on duty’ so what the heck, I answer. Is this is the call I’ve been waiting for?  “hi Hilary, you’re invited to a cheese and chutney tasting over lunch but you need to be here in the next hour….oh, and it’s going to be filmed. Is that ok with you?” FINE!

Within 60 minutes I’m showered, changed and heading up to Baxters HQ, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh for a cheese and Baxters chutney tasting over lunch. So glad I picked up the phone 🙂 Continue reading

WAGAMAMA ST ANDREWS SQUARE EDINBURGH

Wagamama St Andrews Square Edinburgh

WAGAMAMA ST ANDREWS SQUARE EDINBURGH
Wagamama St Andrews Square Edinburgh has landed. Another Wagamama????? Does that hit you like the news that yet another Pizza Express is opening in your home town even though there’s 11 already? Or that Starbucks thinks that 20 stores is seriously not enough in Edinburgh so they’re now trying to squeeze in 4 more? Well, it probably does, although this particular Wagamama has landed in the most perfect position possible. It’s nestled between the awesome Dishoom (we do go on about it I know) and the *yet to be ventured into as* Refinery….
Yes it’s a chain but there has been some serious thought put into the layout, decor, interiors, (call it what you will), of this particular Wagas as it’s pretty funky and is definitely more interesting than it’s sister outposts on Lothian Road and Ocean Terminal. Both of these have looked rather tired of late so this restaurant makes them look like they really know what they are doing rather than following the same old format. All good so far! Continue reading
