    About Time for a Chinese

Sea Food on Leith [On The Road: Edinburgh]

Well, Newman uses his mail truck to run fish for China Panda on the Weekends
Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld episode “The Pothole”)

The Ship on the Shore is a nice brasserie style located on the Water of Leith. Nice atmosphere, maritime decor, French influence, expect a seafood in your face menu, fruits de mer, shellfish platters, mussels, oysters, and fresh fish.

All Aboard
For starts we go the hot and cold salmon, really nice, the raw smoked piece was superb, the hot one just a bit surprised as it was actually cooked but cold. Overall nice and fresh.

Salmon Time
For main we shared the seafood paella with lobster. It was ok, not technically a paella, it was more like a risotto. The dish didn't work for me, the seafood on the paella was plenty and really good, but overall there was no cohesion. If I come back in the future I wouldn't order it again. My recommendation is to stick to fruits de mer platters, specially the Royale that looked superb.

Lobster Paella
Fresh seafood, big portions, lovely location, don’t make my mistake and keep on the fresh seafood side.
