A half deep fried pizza supper and a can of Irn Bru

Posted by & filed under drift, Edinburgh, Food.

oh yes we’re back in Scotland! Nowhere has deep fried pizzas like Scotland. Does anywhere else have deep fried pizzas at all? We’ve moved to a tenement flat in Polwarth near the canal and a great deli, whose name I can’t remember. We nearly took a place in Stockbridge which would’ve been cool, but the… Read more »
