Ever since I attended a summer menu launch at Tempus last year it has become one of my favourite places to go for a fancy meal in Edinburgh, so I was delighted to be invited to try out their new Autumn/Winter menu last month.
I went along with some of my best blogging chums, on a chilly October evening, for an evening of good food and a much needed catch up. I'd had the day off work and had spent it doing lots of DIY stuff around the house (post coming soon) so a relaxing evening was definitely in order.
To start I went for wild garlic mushrooms on sourdough toast which was a really decent portion size for a starter. I remember a similar dish from their summer menu but it was brioche rather than sourdough, and if I'm honest I think that was tastier - although the sourdough was still really nice.
For my main I went for fish and chips - sometimes you can't beat a classic! I'm sure I've raved about the chips at Tempus before in my last review by oh my days they are bloody amazing. Chunky, crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. Perfection. The fish was also super tasty with the perfect crispy batter (not too greasy) and soft, flaky fish on the inside. Those mushy peas didn't get touched though because mushy peas are the devil.
I was in two minds about ordering dessert as I felt really full after the starter and main but I gave in as what sort of weirdo would I be if I turned down a free pud?! I went for a trio of ice creams which sounds really boring but the favours were sooooo good - banana, mango, and a classic creamy vanilla. YUM.
This is now the 3rd blogger event I've been to at Tempus and the food never fails to disappoint. I'm already trying to think of the next birthday/event coming up that I can use as an excuse to go back!
