Festival Pig Outs

Food is everywhere at the Edinburgh festival ...... of course there is a lot of rip off going on - I saw a portion of Chips (French Fries in US), being offered at £6.50. That's close to criminal! But most food was at city centre prices. However with competition so fierce, there are some attention grabbers about .... here's a few.

Porks a real standard this year ..... the benchmark for all the pork rolls is something like this one.

The Crackling Pig
So the competition came up with this ..... catchy legend as well.

The Hog Hut ... "Its only Pork 'n' Roll, but I like it"
There was also International Cuisine from around the globe ...... then there was this one from Australia.

Aussies Don't Do Cuisine .....
But you can never beat the Scots at their own game ...... Yes its not myth, this is the latest advert for the legend of Scottish cooking ....

The Deep Fried Mars Bar - Alive & Thriving

The stuff of infamy wherever gastronomes gather, proudly advertised by the Cafe Piccante on Broughton Street Edinburgh.

The Fried Mars Bar


  1. Never thought I would see them advertised like that professional bill poster. To be honest I thought they were semi-urban myth.

    1. I know what you mean, but they really exist and are now something of a national delicacy. It makes me laugh every time I see them advertised. it has to be said that they are not at the festival.

  2. There's a fish and chip shop in New York which is called "A Salt & Battery" which is kinda funny.

    1. Well 'Harry' .... it is funny. Thanks for the comment. LOL

  3. How about .... 'Mustard's Last Stand' in Melbourne.
