Naked, Edinburgh

Our life has turned upside down in here as we have a new addition to our family, puppy Haggis. No time to eat out anymore as often as we would like, or like we used to, but luckily there's always the option to eat Naked.
Naked is very affordable, lovingly cooked food delivered to your home. Their menu has got lots of favourites that seem to be staying plus seasonal delights, like 'Winter stew with steak and bacon', 'Frittata with roasted root vegetables' and 'Hot smoked salmon and beetroot salad'.
I finally got to taste their 'Naked burger with smoked mozzarella and bacon' and some chips to go with it. The burger was insanely good, so good in fact that I found myself ordering it again in the same week. Juicy, well seasoned beef, crunchy salad, seriously good dressing... has to be the best burger I have ever had. There, I said it. Best burger I have ever had.
No meal is complete without pudding, so a yummylicious 'Naked chocolate brownie' finished off this dinner beautifully...
always fast delivery

Salt of the Earth, Falkirk

There is a restaurant in Falkirk, Salt of the Earth, that is in my opinion well worth the drive from Edinburgh. 
Their Southern French and Scottish inspired menu has got something for everybody's taste and their clientele on a Wednesday night was a mixed bunch: young couples, families with small children, older people, couple of birthday parties... Luckily we arrived just before 7pm and got to order from the 'Early Evening Menu' which offers two courses for £12.95 or three for £16.95.
Mr Lovable had a starter of 'Warm goats cheese with beetroot carpaccio' and when it arrived it made me wish that I'd ordered a starter as well... I got to taste it though and it was as good as it looked! For mains we both had 'Tiger prawn and chorizo brochette, saffron scented rice with salsa verde' and it was superb.
  And my dessert, 'Sticky toffee pudding' was warm and perfectly moist served with delicious, smooth vanilla ice-cream that tasted home made.
 Our waitress was absolutely perfect, food gorgeous and very reasonably priced, atmosphere warm, welcoming and relaxed... I am already looking forward going back.
service was spot-on

amazing toilets and decor

beautiful presentation
