I was kindly invited along to Malmaison Edinburgh on Saturday to try out their beautiful restaurant Chez Mal.

I brought along Lucy who I used to live with and don't get to see as often now and she's a proper foodie so I knew she'd enjoy it! The Malmaison Edinburgh is just a stones throw away from my flat in Leith but I was rushing back from a work meeting so I did get a 2 minute Uber there (for my sins).

On arrival we were greeted by our lovely server Sarah Cutler who has only been with Malmaison for a few months but is already a credit to them. Before long Sarah had landed a bottle of rose on our table and we settled in for a long evening of chats and beaut food.

To start Lucy and I both went for the soup of the day with artisan bread which was gorgeous. 
For main I went for the Roast Cumbrian chicken breast with wild mushrooms, young leeks and truffle gnocchi. Lucy opted for the catch of the day with pointed cabbage, broccoli and savoy with lemon dressing.  Where is the image of our mains? In true Aoife style I was too busy chatting god knows what to Lucy and didn't manage to get one. I can confirm that it was beaut though and it was my favourite course.

For desert I went for the poached pear, raspberry & almond frangipane tart and Lucy went for the citrus & pomegranate carpaccio with greek yoghurt, lime & mint syrup.  Apologies for the not too high quality images, I hadn't seen Lucy in a few weeks so we were too busy chatting!
