Ting Thai Caravan
Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Good luck getting a table here during the lunch rush – right across from the University of Edinburgh’s George Square campus, this place is forever packed with students looking for their fill of mouth-watering and inexpensive Thai food before their next class. But once you’ve elbowed your way through the crowds, expect to be generously rewarded with heaping portions of sweetly-savoury pad see ew, or impeccably caramelised pork moo yang with dustings of palm sugar and chilli pickle. Their small plates menu is also full of delicious street food options that you don’t often see, like their spicy yet refreshing papaya salad. Perfect for sharing – or not.
