Easter Road is home to Tinelli's, one of Edinburgh's best loved Welsh restaurants. They serve halibut on a regular basis, and their traditional Welsh tortelli are absolutely divine. The staff are great jokers---half the time they pretend to be Italian. If you want to know how come a restaurant like this survives so far from usual tourist territory, try the zabaglione...

It's also reassuring to know that the Shapla will do you a damn fine curry. But don't phone them up and ask for a Bombay chana massallam, some sag aloo, tarka dal and brinjal bhaji, a Peshwari nan, a puri and a paratha, because they'll automatically bring them to my flat, remembering the rice you accidentally forgot to order.

Bothwell Street.

You can hop on over the bridge.
