Gastronomic Travels: Must Eats in Edinburgh 4 of 4

I made my rounds at top restaurants, such as Number One, Wedgewood and Kitchin, in Edinburgh. Now it's time for Edinburgh's must eats. 

1. Haggis: According to wikipedia, haggis is "a savoury pudding containing sheep's pluck; minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally encased in the animal's stomach though now often in an artificial casing instead." For those not in the mood for meat, vegetarian haggis is also available, but I opted for a simpler chicken pot pie instead.

2. Cafes: Saying that Edinburgh is a rainy city is an understatement. It rained non-stop when I was there for 3 days. My only life savior was the tiny, cute cafes sprinkled around town. For breakfast, I chose Milk on Morrison Street for piping hot vegetarian wrap and a cup of mocha before braving the cold weather outside.

 3. Fudge: I don't know why fudge is so popular in this part of the world, but it is. Try some at The Fudge House of Edinburgh.
Sweet, gooey goodness
5. Ice cream: Every country has a different type (texture and flavors) of ice cream. Must be from the local milk. Try some, and don't mind the frigid weather.

 6. Scotch (MUST DRINK): I'm not a big fan of scotch on the rocks, but when I tried Bruadar and Columba Cream straight up, I'm a scotch convert! Scotch tastings abound in the city. I just wished I bought a few bottles home with me. 

Hint: Don't know which one to pick? Pick up a set of tiny bottles, which usually come in threes or fours. They are usually found in many souvenir shops on the Royal Mile. 

Drink up!
