Tony Singh pop-up brings spice and flavour to Edinburgh Festival

The larger-than-life celebrity chef, Tony Singh is set to return to Scotland’s capital this August (1st – 31st) with a new pop-up restaurant, Road Trip, promising stripped down dining at its very best.

Published: July 15, 2015

Housed for the duration of the Edinburgh Festival at Metro Brasserie in the Apex International Hotel, located in city’s Grassmarket, the pop-up’s diverse and eclectic menu will offer ‘street food’ made with the finest international and locally sourced ingredients, drawing inspiration from Tony's travels across the globe.

Synonymous with Tony’s charismatic personality and contemporary culinary approach, dishes on the Road Trip menu will be affordably priced from £5.00 each and with tables available from 12noon to midnight seven days a week, the restaurant offers the ideal pit-stop for busy festival goers looking for something tasty to refuel between shows.

Dishes as varied and international as a Single Fish, synonymous with his Edinburgh background to Pho, a noodle soup from Vietnam, will appear alongside daily specials using the best of that Scotland’s outstanding natural larder has to offer. And, it wouldn’t be a Tony Singh pop-up without his legendary haggis pakora making an appearance on the menu.

Tony Singh says: “I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into this project, back behind a stove in the heart of Edinburgh. It's going to be brilliant to use the best of Scottish and British produce, in a mash up of styles and flavours from all the places around the world I have been lucky enough to munch in. The street food menu is dead simple and really tasty….like me, it’s a cheeky mash-up of cultures and experiences! Come along and get stuck in”.

All dishes will also be available to takeaway – the perfect accompaniment to the Festival Fringe shows, produced by Sweet Venues, which will be a daily fixture at the Apex International Hotel – also an official Fringe venue for 2015.

Stuart Douglas, General Manager of the Apex International commented “We’re delighted to be working with Tony Singh who has a fantastic reputation, not only in the capital and across Scotland but UK-wide. Tony’s passion for tastes and presentation can be enjoyed by visitors to Edinburgh during the festival, his loyal foodie followers, Edinburgh locals, and of course our hotel residents who will find a very different dining offer this year.”
