Scotland and England – The Best Stuff We Ate

  • Haggis bonbons and buttermilk fried chicken sandwich at The Smoke Stack in Edinburgh, Scotland. Weirdly, this was our only haggis in Scotland. Fortunately, it was delightful.
  • Lamb chops and bacon from George Cockburn and Sons Butchers in Dingwall, Scotland. These guys know their stuff.
  • Fish and chips at Smoke on the Water in Uig, Scotland. This place was awesome; it’s a little cafe attached to a gas station in the blink-and-miss-it town of Uig. They were out of all of their barbecue, so we got orders of takeout fish and chips and ate them on the tables of the only (closed) restaurant on the docks. Went perfectly with a beer from Skye Brewing Company.
  • Steak frites at Cote in St. Christoper’s, London. Shout out to them for making a thin steak truly medium rare. Fiona loved it!
  • Aussie style breakfast (twice) at Daisy Green in Marlyebone, London. I really enjoyed the fancy bacon roll (made with roti bread – neat!), plus the smashed avocado sourdough toast was top notch. Fi was into the cinnamon roll.
  • Steak and Stilton pie at The Victoria pub in Paddington, London. As an American, I generally gravitate toward sweet pies, but this savory one… oh, man. It looked small, but contained multitudes.
