Holiday Day 6 / Edinburgh Day 2 (Lunch At Dishoom)


Today was our 1st full day in Edinburgh and we just walked around the town, had lunch and did a little shopping. Our apartment is in New Town and we walked to Old Town, then came back to New Town to go to “Dishoom” for lunch.

Dishoom はロンドンに数店あるインド料理のカフェで、ロンドンでは何度か行っています。普通のインド料理レストランとは少し系統が違うメニューで、ロンドンに行く時には楽しみにしているカフェ。

Dishoom has a few branches in London and we’d been to a few of them a few times. Their menu is a little different from usual Indian restaurants and we like them very much, so we are always looking forward to going to one whenever we stay in London.


We had Vegetable Samosa, Chicken Tikka, Chicken Curry, Chilli Broccoli Salad, Roomali Roti, and Chocolate Pudding with Chilli Ice Cream for dessert. We enjoyed everything. I think we’d had all of them before except the Chilli Broccoli Salad, which was a bit unusual and very nice. I think we can recreate it easily at home, it had raw broccoli, chilli, mint, pistachio, dates, pumpkin seeds, sun flower seeds, honey and lime juice.


After lunch, we did some shopping in M&S, then browsed books in Waterstones before coming back to the apartment. When you rent an apartment or a house, you can feel as if you are living here, which is a nice feeling.


Incidentally, I tried some clothes in the fitting room in M&S for the first time since lockdown and I must say I felt a little uneasy. Even though the numbers of people infected and killed are declining they are not small yet so you don’t feel safe using public facilities like that. However, we cannot stay home forever, I suppose…
