We recently headed down to Malmaison to try out the "Biggest sunday lunch in town".... this sounded like a challenge to me. Armed with our Living Social vouchers & stretchy trousers we headed down to Leith.
Malmaison in Edinburgh is located on the shore & is a beautiful building overlooking the water. By some small miracle we actually arrived early, so we decided to grab a drink in the bar before lunch. I ordered a Bloody Mary, which I had been craving since leaving the gym 40 minutes earlier! It lived up to expectations, I really enjoyed it... although the celery was quickly removed. It's one salad item that I just can't get on board with.
Once we grabbed our table we got stuck into the unlimited hors d'oeuvres from the Chef's Table. I think we all had at least two trips up and feasted on bread, cured meat, pate, salad and salmon amongst other things. I think I could easily have filled up on the Chef's Table alone! However the biggest lunch was going to live up to it's name.
For my Main I ordered the fish cake. As you can see they looked amazing, and they tasted just as good. We also ordered burgers and cod.. all the main courses were a huge success.
Finally as part of our deal we got a desert - I ordered the sticky toffee pudding. Although I've got a very sweet tooth even I couldn't really fit this final course in. It was delicious but certainly not needed! An option of a lighter pudding would be nice... particularly as we're coming into spring.
We will defiantly be back to enjoy lunch again... next time we might not eat for the weekend before!!
