    Can't miss food or sights in London, Edinburgh, or Dublin?

    Hi all - we'll be taking a trip in early September to London (work for me, vacation for my husband) and then tacking on a week (vacation for both of us), and since we've never been to Scotland or Ireland, figured we'd go there. We figured we'd start with Edinburgh and Dublin, though are flexible if somewhere else catches our eye. I've checked out my usual online sources, but thought I'd check with the TB collective wisdom on any of your personal favorites for unique food (cheap or posh) or can't miss sights. So far for London, I want to check out some good Indian food, and one of Fuchsia Dunlop's Sichuan restaurants. (I've been to London a few times, but years ago.)

    Thanks in advance for thoughts on this really broad question!

    Food: find Said!! I mean it find this tiny chocolat-shop. Even if chokolat is not your thing that much, just find it. Oh and bringing gifts from there is awesome too.

    It is in London and the only other one is in Rome so this is pritty much something to realy not miss out on...

    PS: can anybody read from this, that I think Said is worth visiting? Well: IT IS!!!!!

    When in London I always find time for a dinner at Cantina Laredo.

    Oh and this place has good Japanese food if you are into it.

    In London, go to the Borough Market. Amazing food! Seriously. So good and very reasonable. Then go to Said, likely Ilkyway says. Get one of the chocolate drinks. So good!

    Good suggestion Pokilani!
    If you like mustard, be sure to check out Fitz Fine Foods there. :-)

    Thanks @Ilkyway, @pokilani, @giuliof! Said looks amazing, and my coworker who will be there for the work part of the trip is excited about Borough Market. And I love mustard! And Japanese food. Smilie

    In Edinburgh, I like Kampung Ali (Malaysian Restaurant) their flatbreads with curry dipping sauce and curry laksa soup are so good. The Witchery which is situated near the castle is not cheap but they do cheaper set menus for lunch and pre-theatre and for a quick lunch Oink in the Grassmarket does hog roast sandwiches.

    Thanks @ANM - I love Malaysian food, and might have to stop by The Witchery for the name alone!
