Edinburgh – Food

Thank you Gurkha Cafe and Restaurant for serving me some delicious food at 10:05pm on a Wednesday evening, after I had been turned away from The Filling Station and Frankie and Benny’s on the Royal Mile, after asking whether I could have a sandwich/simple pasta meal. It was 10pm in the capital of Scotland and these two places couldn’t provide a hungry tourist with some food.

At Gurkha, I had Vegetable Korma and Pilau Rice, which were exceptionally tasty. They were also served with extreme happiness by the manager/waiter.

Travel 2016 – Tip 5 – Vienna – Cafe Drechsler

If you are looking for a traditional Viennese cafe, I would recommend Cafe Drechsler largely because it is close to the Secession and about 10 minutes from Karlsplatz with all its sights. The cafe was remodelled by Conran & Partners and re-opened in 2007. The cafe does not accept credit cards and the staff do speak some English. I had a delicious cafe latte and a Topfenstrudel – a type of fresh cheese of Central European origin usually translated as “curd cheese” or Quark. This really hit the spot with the temperatures 33 degrees C outside.
