If big, bold flavours and sunny vibes are your thing then get yourself to Edinburgh's Tollcross, pronto. Trenchtown Caribbean Social Club opened in the summer of 2017, and promises with it authentic Caribbean food, rum-infused cocktails and enough 'riddims' and 'tings' to make you forget all about the bleak Scottish weather outside.
The menu is big and punchy. You can grab yourself an array of smaller, sharing plates, ranging from the classic rib 'n wings combos to fiery fried squid and pepper roti or move straight on to the big guns - the jerk chicken, the goat curry or a hedonistic pit-grilled burger, served with 'slaw and spicy fries.
All sounding a bit carnivorous? Fear not, veggie bretheren; there are plenty of colourful, meat-free options to tuck into too - with the watermelon chow and supa green salad coming pretty high up on our list of things to try. Wash these down with a fruity daiquiri or an ice-cold imported lager, soak up the reggae tunes and find yourself transported to a very happy place indeed.
