Edinburgh: The Dogs

Arrived in Edinbrugh. After having had a little bit of trouble synchronizing with our Air-BnB hostess (turned out fine in the end and the apartment was amazing), we head for The Dogs which came highly recommended, I believe that was on Chowhound.

Anyhow, food was indeed quite good and the ambiance was convivial. We had a few first on that night; haggis, which turned out to be quite nice but it wasn't boiled and was properly seasoned and and accompanied with sauce. Scottish mussels, which was our first introduction to the amazing Scottish seafood; while they were good, there would be even better in Oban. Finally, Aberdeen beef which was also quite nice. One thing that The Dogs showed us is that the Scots like fresh, local produces and are cooking them with pride to the most satisfying effect.
