We came across Yummy Tori on twitter whilst looking for interesting and different places to visit in Edinburgh. Their twitter feed was friendly and helpful so we jumped in and booked a table for the weekend.
Arriving the place was jumping, it was a Saturday night after all but I was still surprised at how busy it was compared to other places we had passed by.
Whilst waiting on our table, we spied some huge glass jars of plums soaking, their own plum wine. We didn’t get a chance to try this, but will certainly do next time, as well as their sake flights. (Saki taster 4 different sakes for £6!)
A Cherry Margarita (£5.90) and a Lychee surprise (£5.90)
Mmm lychee floralness, easy to drink
After this the dishes came thick and fast, japanese food tapas style.
Each dish came out beautifully presented,and pipping hot. Lovely crunchy batter but still fluffy, soft warm prawns, subtle wasabi, nice and creamy and fish roe on top
The garlic rice was a favourite of Ms M, blew away her cold! fried rice with the occasional burnt garlic, yum, I love garlic, and you can definitely taste it
yum, again sweet sticky sauce, really soft potato
Covered in the flakes which looked alive! octopus balls lovely, like croquettes, chewy but tasty meat nice savoury sauce
In total we had nine dishes and two cocktails for £48, and although it doesn’t look it,we were stuffed with the portions.
