Great chow in Edinburgh, Scotland?

Jane P. | Oct 14, 2004 02:49 PM

Hi everyone! I'll be traveling to Edinburgh for a weekend next week, and am in desperate search for a few GREAT places to eat. Any suggestions? Here are a few limits though:

- since I'm a native New Yorker transplanted to London for a semester, I'm not that interested in "ethnic" foods, as I have a ready supply at home. But I am very interested in trying traditional Scottish fare, such as haggis.
- I'm a student and thus VERY POOR! I'd be looking for entrees no more than 10 pounds. The cheaper, the better.
- I'm staying at the Caledonian Backpackers Hostel in central Edinburgh, so anything accessible from there would be great.

I've searched through the first few pages of the International Boards in search of threads on places to eat in Edinburgh, but either the recs are a) way out of price range, or b) nonexistent (broken links). I'd go to the farmer's market, but I dont think it's open that weekend. So please help out a young chowhound! I'll report back if the places I try are worth mentioning! Thanks in advance!
