With both the Fringe Festival and the more mainstream Edinburgh Festival taking over the town, Tony Naylor picks Edinburgh's 10 best budget eateries (Guardian, August 14) worth trying whether there is an event going on or not.
Not quite politically correct as I noted that unpretentious Spoon offers Boudin Noir (Blood Sausage in other words) and Oink is all about pigging.
According to the Spoon Review by The List they do offer Gluten Free and Vegetarian options.
As for Oink, The Edinburgh Blog in Oink for a hog roast roll shares the picture (which I borrowed below) of the roasted hog displayed in the restaurant's window.
Not for the squeamish!
Will get back to the artful side of the festival itself over the next few days
