With ‘Exam season’ over, I took a short trip home to visit my family. The experience left me feeling slightly melancholic because, during my A-levels, I was so eager to get as far away from home as possible. My desires were granted when I moved to Edinburgh for University and having experienced the frisson of excitement that life is; I can’t help but feel sad every time I visit home, realizing how much I truly miss home. Strange isn’t it? Probably not, I guess this is a part of the adulthood experience…
Moving on from that piece of reflection, I have moved to Glasgow this summer for work purposes. And as I explore new dishes and experiences, I have decided to be more consistent in enjoying my passions [insert *rolling eyes* emoji]. I will be sharing my thoughts with you every Sunday, for the next 6 weeks as part of a new series called Riki Eats.
Simply put, I will be doing a lot more eating than cooking, so this is me, giving you snippets into how food sparks Joy in my life [Shout Out to Aunty Marie Kondo]. I will also be uploading short video content alongside each post [which will can be accessed through Riki Cooks’ Instagram Page] so that I can practice creating better visual content, you can enjoy the extra insight into my foodie trips and hopefully, you can offer me some constructive feedback too [Yes, it seems like a win for us all].
So here we are Episode 1 of Riki Eats, Brunch at The Kilted Kitchen in Stockbridge, Edinburgh.
The Kilted Kitchen 55 Raeburn Place, Edinburgh EH4, 0131 315 2346. Breakfast Menu [7 days 9am – 12 noon], Lunch Menu [7 days 12 noon – 5pm], Dinner Menu [6pm – 8pm (Sun-Tue), 6pm-Midnight (Thurs – Sat)]

How far is The Kilted Kitchen from Edinburgh City Centre?
Less than 10 mins from the City Centre by bus or car, also about 20 mins walking distance on a good day.
When is the best day to visit?
I had brunch on a Saturday, however, a little birdie told me that the Sunday Markets in Stockbridge are a hit, so I’d probably suggest a Sunday visit as part of your itinerary whilst exploring Dean’s Village.
Do they offer Vegan/Vegetarian options?
I don’t know why I thought this would be a popular question, it’s 2019, it’d be slightly problematic if they don’t offer Meat-free options.
Is this an ad?
Not in the slightest. We paid for our meal [well my friend paid for our meal, lol].
