FYUL (Food You Utterly Love) is a recently opened cafe on Bread St in Tollcross in Edinburgh. It has what might be called ‘bric a brac’ decor – bits and pieces of vintage stuff, unmatching wallpaper and furniture, and so on. It works well though it is a wee bit contrived.
One thing that really annoys me is restaurants is when they try to sell you drinks as soon as you sit down but nothing like that here – we were offered a carafe of tap water. This came flavoured with pieces of cucumber which gave it a very subtle flavour. Definitely something to try at home.
We didn’t want much to eat – I had felafel with hummus and salad and others had a wrap with a selection of fillings – cheese, onion and tuna. The felafel and hummus were excellent but a wee bit of dressing on the salad would have been a good idea. My taste of the wrap convinced me that I’d try that the next time.
Excellent and friendly service – a good addition to the Edinburgh cafe scene. We will be back.
