MONTEITHS, EDINBURGH

Monteiths - a contemporary Scottish bar and restaurant where we went to have dinner with the family, the evening before my cousin's wedding day.
A lovely little gem, located just off the Royal Mile, down a narrow fairy-lit pathway. 

We were provided with a three course set menu to choose from beforehand.

 

Knowing me and my love for cocktails, I started off with a Merry Metropolitan...


Here's our different choices of starters...

| Cock A' Leekie Soup |

A light soup served with warm bread.


| Seared Salmon |

Kedgeree bon bon, carrot & star anice puree.

 

| Game Terrine |

Spiced pear chutney & toasted sourdough.


Followed by the mains...

| Ballotine of Turkey |

Confit turkey leg, cranberry & sage stuffing crispy smoked bacon & gravy.

 

| Hake Fillet |

Crispy kale, parsnip mash & lobster broth.


| Duck Confit |

Braised red cabbage,  salt baked celeriac & roast chestnuts.


And finishing off with dessert...

| Christmas Pudding |

Soaked in monkey shoulder & whisky cream.

 

| Sticky Toffee Pudding |

Stem ginger ice cream.


| Chocolate Delice |

Iced cranachan souffle & clementine compote.

 

 


Apologies for some of the poor quality photos, the room was very dimly lit...
I also haven't quite 'mastered' all the functions on my new camera...oops.

Overall, a satisfying meal in the company of family - great food and company, what more is there to ask for.
