    Had a fish supper from The Chippy by Spencer today.

    Probably the best fish supper in Edinburgh. Very, very good and imo better than Berties and the Fishmarket which I also think are very good.
    Thank you for your kind review mate, always great to see our food praised 👍

    Itís doing well BW considering the tough times we have opened in. Itís hard going with us both doing constant seven days a week but needs must, maybe get some days off next year! Receiving some very good reviews and business growing each week so hopefully it continues.
    You might have to wait a long time for a second one 😁

    What time does your DJ start?

    Will give it a go next time I'm in the area (who knows when that'll be mind), Piccante certainly isn't up to much

    It used to have a good reputation and good value, £7.80 for a fish supper is a fair price.

    Got a bacon naan at home kit from Dishoom delivered today. Partner's had a hard time of it recently and has been working fourteen hour days so thought it would be nice to treat her.

    Brilliant kit - really tasty food and the chai tea that you get with the kit is just like you get at the restaurant. Good fun to make together.

    It was really good - they even give you an extra naan doughball in case you bugger one up. Little things like that are a nice thought.

    We're planning on doing a different restaurant kit each month to support restaurants. There are a lot of good places doing excellent kits.

    Not a restaurant but finally got round to visiting Bross Bagel today. The one at Leith Arches. £19 for 2 bagels and 2 cans of juice. Sorry, I have to say that I just donít get the hype. Waited over 15 minutes after ordering and it was ok, but not really worth the wait or the price. Thatís Nuevo Leith for you though I suppose.

    Had a nice takeaway from Down the Hatch last night. Philly cheese steak sandwich, buffalo chips and a bottle of Moose Head Canadian lager for £12 odd. That was with a 25% discount code. Really good food, will go back.

    They are absolute masters in marketing. Everything is on brand and their social media is pretty much a perfect guide as to how to build a cult following. Vague sexual innuendos, brand recognition and regularly updated. It helps that the owner is an enthusiastic self publicist as well who will put herself front and centre in the press or online at any opportunity.

    As for the food? I'm with you. Overpriced and bang average. Good luck to them though, it's working for them.

    I donít think Iíve ever been as disappointed with somewhere as I was Bross Bagels. Absolute pish.

    As PB said, theyíve marketed themselves incredibly well.
