After a pleasant stay at Christine and Chris’s place in Glasgow, we continue our journey by taking a bus in the evening from Glasgow to Edinburgh. About an hour later, we arrived in Edinburgh.
The Laich Hall is located in the ground floor of the Royal Palace. It was created in the 1617 to serve as an outer reception room and dining chamber for King James VI. Today, the hall is used for government functions.
The Great Hall is the castle’s main banqueting chamber. For more information about the castle, please visit their official website here.
Back to our main theme – food. There are many restaurants, café and bars located on Royal Mile, Edinburgh Old Town’s busiest tourist street. We were thinking of having a light lunch and randomly chosen a café to have our meal. The café is named after Robert Burns aka Rabbie Burns, a famous poet and lyricist. One of his best known poem was the Auld Lang Syne.
We ordered a spicy baguette with grilled spicy sausage, mozzarella cheese and jalapeño peppers served with salad. Priced at £6.50, the baguette was definitely overpriced. We hate to admit it, but this is probably one of the worst sandwiches we’ve ever had in our life. For the high price that we paid, we were only served with a few pathetic pieces of sausages, jalapeño peppers and cheese. Worst still, the sandwich was way too spicy for us and it burnt our lips! It was unbelievable as most of you would’ve known that we love and take spicy food.
Probably the worst place we’ve dined in for food in the UK so far. Read quite a number of negative feedbacks on the internet too. Would definitely avoid this place in the future!
