Twenty Princes Street is always a joy to visit for an evening meal (read our restaurant review at Twenty Princes Street Dining), so it was little surprise that their Summer Lunch Menu was a cleverly thought out selection of tasty dishes to accommodate anything the Edinburgh weather might throw at us.

The view from Twenty Princes Street

The sun had decided to make an appearance on the day we visited so once seated and served with beautifully chilled white wine spritzers we chose chicken and whisky brûlée and roast beetroot salad.  The rich brûlée, served with fig leaf crisps and garden salad, was somewhat akin to a light chicken liver pate and if I search really hard for a criticism it would be that the portion size would have been enough for a main course, which I would have been more than happy with.

The cooking of the beetroot salad enhanced its the wonderfully sweet, earthy flavours and the blue murder croutons added textural balance, all brought together with beetroot jus.

As a main course I chose pork belly served with red cabbage rumbledethumps.  Pork belly has a subtle flavour and tenderness that makes it melt in the mouth when cooked properly, which I’m delighted to say this was.  I have to confess to finding the rumbledethumps a little dry, but this was nothing that the rich sauce couldn’t fix.

Pork Belly

My dining partner chose the Twenty Burger.  The burger itself was made of beautifully prepared Scottish steak and the accompaniments, particularly the Innis & Gunn rarebit croquette, elevated the dish from the normal well cooked burger in a bun category to a delicious and interesting dish.

For dessert we chose the creme brûlée and chocolate fudge cake.  The creme brûlée had all the warmth of flavour you could ask of heady vanilla and the smooth creamy texture was beautifully offset by the not too sweet shortbread served with it. The marriage of the deep chocolate of the fudge cake and the slight acidity of  the raspberry sorbet was a match made in heaven!

The staff at Twenty Princes Street were attentive without being intrusive and with lunch costing just £12.00 for one course, £16.00 for two courses or £20.00 for three courses it’s incredibly good value for money.
