Angels Share, Edinburgh

Scottish Food in the heart of Edinburgh

Just off Princes Street in Edinburgh is where you will find Angels Share, a bar, restaurant and hotel. With a new menu out, we were invited along to try it out.

The flags are at the windows as during our visit the Six Nations Rugby Championship was on. As this was a Monday night, the clientele was of the non-sporty kind, here for pints and cocktails.

The new menu seems to have Scottish classics but with a twist. We picked the pizza crunch and Cullen Skink cake to start and then onto Address to a Haggis.

What we ate and drank

But first some cocktails. You can’t visit a cocktail bar and not try their unique cocktails. Left to right we have, A Tunnocks Teacake – Cacao White, Cacao Brown, Chambord, Cream and Marshmallow Sugar and Shaken, not stirred – Chase Rhubarb Vodka, Martini Bianco, Lychee Liqueur, Citrus and Vanilla Sugar.

Starter number 1 is a pizza crunch. The Angels Share take on a Scottish chip shop classic. Usually, a pizza crunch is a pizza which has been covered in batter and deep fried. This was the Angels Share version, a slice of fried bread, tomatoes, pickled red onion, and mozzarella topped with salt and vinegar batter scraps. It was a bit of a mouthful, but a mouth filled with flavours. A bit different to a pizza crunch, however with the elements still there.

Next up, Cullen Skink Cake. A haddock fish cake with pickled cucumber and dill creme fraiche. Not quite Cullen Skink, but a fishy fish cake and the pickled cucumber was *chef’s kiss.

The main event, Address to a haggis. Designed to share with a haggis, crushed brown butter neeps (turnip), Mashed potato and mustard, crispy potato skin and whisky gravy. Served with a poem, which you can keep.

Where to start? The meaty haggis? the creamy and mustardy mash? or the crispy potato skins? They were all filling, tasty and enjoyable. We were so stuffed that we couldn’t squeeze in dessert.
