We crave Tupiniquim, always. If it were closer to our flat, we might act on our cravings Every. Single. Day. As a matter of fact, I am craving it right this moment. Hence, an entire blog post dedicated to it.
Tupiniquim is a gluten-free ‘Brazil-in-a-box’ and gloriously delicious. They offer a sweet and savoury range of crepes, fresh pressed juices and a Brazilian stew, Feijoada, that I have yet try, but people go crazy for it!
The texture of their gluten-free crepes are perfect- they are light, a bit crispy on the outside and warm with a little fluff on the inside. The savoury peri-peri is a crowd favourite- chicken, spinach, goat cheese, butternut squash, avocado with a homemade peri-peri curry sauce and without the chicken it makes a great vegetarian option. Or, if you are craving something sweet, try the banana, agave and pecan crepe dusted with cinnamon.
It is one of the best foodie deals in town. Only £5 for an easily sharable (or not sharable…) meal. Here are some tips for the first timer:
1) Expect to wait at least 10 minutes (or even up to 25 minutes if it gets really busy during the lunch rush) for your order. It will be well worth the wait!
2) For spicy food lovers there is an option to make your crepe mild or super spicy – just mention it when you are ordering.
3) Everything here ranges from £4-6 and opening times are from 10am – 6pm, Monday – Saturday.
4) Dine al fresco in their seating area, or take a stroll through the Meadows Park if you can make your crepe last longer than 5 minutes.
This is the first post in a series that highlights some of our favourite places to eat, sip and visit in Edinburgh and abroad. I would love to hear some of your top stops. Happy eating, y’all!
