The national football team and the weather are seldom cause for rejoicing in Scotland.
Fortunately, our natural produce is among the best in the world and could cause the dourest of Scotland managers to start singing in the rain.
Celebrate the great taste of Scotland with today’s Big Deal at Metro West End, part of Apex Haymarket Hotel.
Finest Scottish produce
A smart, contemporary restaurant with great windows for people-spotting, Metro West End is on Haymarket Terrace in Edinburgh’s vibrant West End.
The kitchen likes to use the finest Scottish produce wherever possible and this is most clearly demonstrated in the delicious options on the a la carte menu.
Available seven days, today’s Big Deal is for two people to have a two course dinner from the a la carte.
The offer also includes a glass of Prosecco for each diner. Sipping a glass of fizz can only help to make the menu choices easier.
The menu changes regularly to reflect the produce in season.
Typical starters might be the Scottish salmon and crab fish cakes with citrus mayonnaise or the baked Portobello mushroom with blue cheese & walnut crust finished with caramelised shallots.
Popular main courses include the fillet of sea bass with a warm lemon
couscous salad. Alternatively, you might try the smoked chicken breast with savoy cabbage & haggis parcel finished with a whisky cream sauce.
There is a £5 supplement on steaks.
Dessert lovers can select from options such as the lemon tart with fruit compote or the chocolate & coffee mousse cup with homemade shortbread finger.
Rated a very healthy 4.1/5 by 5pm customers, Metro West End has long been a neighbourhood favourite.
Snap up today’s Big Deal and use it to enjoy a pre-theatre dinner, a romantic night out or simply a great reason to enjoy a taste of Scotland.
