The stylish Printing Press Bar & Kitchen on Edinburgh’s iconic George Street is ‘brunching out’ with a new offering for diners this August.The new weekend brunch has arrived just in time, as locals and visitors alike search for something delicious before another jam-packed day of Festival shows.
Served on Saturdays and Sundays from 12.30 to 3.30pm, Executive Chef Colin Fleming has created a three-course brunch menu, priced at £28 per person including a glass of Prosecco.
The menu focuses on brunch classics, peppered with produce from Scotland’s natural larder:
- Pancakes or waffles with berry compote, maple syrup, whipped Crowdie
- Poached Peterhead smoked haddock kedgeree with cauliflower pakora, crispy duck egg
- Hot-smoked Scottish salmon, sourdough, chopped free-range egg, Orkney brown crab mayonnaise, caviar
- Smoked ham hock, garden pea and Isle of Mull Cheddar potato cake, cherry vine tomatoes, Arran mustard hollandaise
Much-loved favourites—such as Smashed avocado and poached eggs on sourdough, Eggs Benedict and Florentine—also make an appearance, and the sourdough used across the menu is made in-house by new Head Pastry Chef, Dominic Maciocia.
Mains also come with a complimentary side dish from sautéed chestnut mushrooms with tarragon butter to crispy potatoes, bacon and shallots, or just some extra toasted sourdough, smashed avocado or fried eggs. Additional sides are charged at £3.50 per portion. After the main event, diners can indulge their sweet tooth with a dish from the dessert table.
