This post is dedicated to a true gem in Edinburgh: The Baked Potato Shop. Located on one of my favorite streets in the amazing Old Town, this wee shop always reminds me of why I love Scotland so much. On the outside, the shop’s bright red paint and friendly looking sign welcomes you in. The interior is quite tiny, making the entire experience feel extra cosy and warm. As for the food, the servings are Scottish-sized (aka quite large) and the food is hardy – a potato stuffed with just about anything you could want. I had a veggie haggis and quinoa stuffed potato with garlic butter and it was truly delightful. Yes, it seems silly to devote an entire blog post to a potato shop, but the shop itself really epitomizes much of what Scotland has to offer (and what I have seen throughout my time here) – friendly, big-hearted, relaxed people gathering in warm places with smiles on their faces despite the cold, rainy environment!
