Breakfast at the airport. Gearing up for three countries in 10 hours!
We’ve had an awesome day! Beautiful country views, castles, Perth, St. Andrews for sunset over the North Sea, wow! Way to live it up on our last day in Europe!
We stopped for dinner at a lovely pub in Perth. I had the wild mushroom and tarragon soup with a delicious beet, arugula and goat cheese crostini salad. The salad was particularly wonderful. The combination of sweet and savory, crisp, smooth and creamy beets was so satisfying! Adam had the classic steak pie with mashed potatoes and carrots. We’re not in France anymore, but we’ve grown find if espresso after meals 🙂
Quick lunch on the go! A delicious Pret arugula and crayfish sandwich! No time to stop we have sightseeing to do!
We stayed out late pub crawling like everyone should when in Edinburgh… then we got hungry. Everything was closed. Then we found this cute place called The Red Squirrel. I LOVE squirrels and they were still serving food! Score!
We started with squirrel nuts (honey and chili peanuts). Then we shared the signature Red Squirrel burger (no, it wasn’t made of squirrel). It was ok, a bit dry, but it did the trick. The coleslaw was drowning in weird dressing, eeek. The fries were absolutely perfect. Crispy, salty, fatty. Mmmm…
We just can’t get enough Asian food…
Adam started with the coconut milk and lemongrass Scottish mussels. WOW!!! It was so good. I was fighting him for bites of his own dish 😉 I started with a very good, but not nearly as amazing buckwheat noodle dish with cilantro and shrimp. For the mains, we both had noodles. Mine were sweet and spicy with cashews and shrimp. Adam’s were more smokey and sweet with both chicken and beef.
Everything was very good, perhaps a bit heavy on the sugar, but when we asked for hot sauce the waitress brought us Tabasco. I love Tabasco. Don’t get me wrong, but it simply DOES NOT belong in Asian food. I needed Siracha or Sambal Oelek, something suitable 😕
