Hula Juice Cafe & Gallery
Hula Juice Cafe, I learned, is one of Jasmine’s favourite foodie spots around Edinburgh, and I completely understand why — fresh ingredients, friendly waiters/ waitresses, Vegan-friendly, beautiful presentation (for the gram hey!), convenient location by Grassmarket… the list could go on. Jasmine clearly isn’t the only one who adores this cafe because the indoor seating area was packed when we arrived and You know Yelp? That popular local reviews site? Hula was acknowledged as the best eatery outside London and came in at #6 overall in their ‘Top 100 restaurants of 2015’!
The £6.50 Vegan wrap (Asian cabbage, avocado, roasted sweet potato, mixed veg, sesame seeds), the £5.45 Avocado sourdough toast (avocado, sun-dried tomato oil, our special Hula mix (chilli flakes, chia, sesame seeds & salt flakes) garnished with rocket, cherry tomato and a wedge of lime), and the £6.75 Acai Bowl (a base of thick Acai smoothie, banana, blueberries and coconut milk, topped with toasted coconut shavings, cocoa nibs, banana slices, blueberries and chia seeds) were shared between the 3 of us.

10 to 10 in Delhi
Dinner was at 10 to 10 where Jasmine and I shared a Vegetable platter made up of very soft, very warm naan that came as a side to a set of 3 different, absolutely delicious curries. I couldn’t help but be brought back to the dinner I shared with Miriam just earlier in the month at Munich’s Taj Mahal. The servers were warm and welcoming, and made us really feel at home in the rather small, extremely cosy restaurant. Its colourful, tastefully designed interior could make anyone feel as though they had been transported all the way to Delhi in India. It’s just a wonderful place to be. :’)
