OK, they’re likely not in the running for a Michelin Star anytime soon, but nevertheless, “Oink!” in Edinburgh - 2 locations, at opposite ends of the Royal Mile - is Scottish roasted pork, using local Scottish pigs, and their pork sandwiches are truly sublime dining.
With or without a little Haggis added on the sandwich, the pork is flavorful, tender, and wonderfully memorable. They’re open each day while the pork lasts, so if they get there for lunch they’ll be very glad they did. From another baby boomer, to like souls, please make sure they put Oink! on their must-do list.
A bit higher on the Edinburgh Fine Dining spectrum, on our last trip to Edinburgh, we also had lunch one day along Calton Hill in the New Town at chef Paul Kitching’s One-star 21212. Really special! https://www.21212restaurant.co.uk/menus/lunch-menu
