Day 5 in Edinburgh – Overcooked Spaghetti


On our 5th day in Edinburgh, we had dinner at another Italian restaurant near the house, I think we walked about 10 minutes or so.  It’s one of the restaurants the owner of the house recommends.  Interior isn’t very nice, it’s like a common coffee shop in Japan, just less atmospheric.



I had Bruschetta with tomato.  The bread wasn’t what they use in Italy for bruschetta (too soft) but it wasn’t bad.



My husband had, I think, deep-fried mozzarella.



I had a very simple pasta – spaghetti with spicy tomato sauce.  Sadly, the pasta was way way overcooked and soft and there is much too much sauce.  Of course, I have overcooked pasta so many times myself when I cook but this is way beyond that.  The taste wasn’t bad although it wasn’t wonderful, but the texture completely spoiled it.  I didn’t enjoy it at all.



My husband had Cannelloni for the main.  Looks like too much sauce to me.



I had ice cream with some liqure (I think amaretto.



My husband had Banana Split.




I don’t remember what my husband’s brother and his wife had but I have a feeling my husband’s brother was eating without complain.  However, his wife was saying her main was too salty.  She ordered “just ice cream” but she had ice cream with mountain of whipped cream and chocolate sauce that she didn’t want.


I guess this was a little better than the restaurant we went to on our 2nd day with our friends, but I would not go back there even if we lived there.  This was supposed to be one of the best restaurants in the area according to the owner of the house we rented and her son.  I felt we should have gone to Edinburgh for dinner rather than eating near the house even though it would have taken us 30 minutes both ways.
