Edinburgh, Scotland

The land of haggis might not be high on your food travel list, but this Scottish metropolis has developed a great food scene over the past decade. Chefs in Edinburgh have reinvented the city's restaurant culture, creating new dishes and putting new spins on classic Scottish and U.K. favorites. As with any good food scene, many of Edinburgh's kitchens are focusing on fresh and local ingredients and seasonal menus. And don't forget: this is also the land of single-malt scotch, so the flavor experiences won't stop once you have cleaned your plate. Companies like Eat Walk Edinburgh offer walking tours that pass through some of the best restaurants, pubs and delicatessens in the city.
