I like the braised pork rice here. It has a large proportion and tastes like an authentic one in China. But I don't like the noodles here because it's a little bit too salty. The service is good.

Been here a few times... Rendang is to die for. Satay is excellent, and Mee Goreng is also very good. Best Malaysian food I've tasted outside Malaysia,

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
