Upon Elmer’s request to Edmund, we reserved a private room for 7 at a one star Michelin Star restaurant in Edinburgh called 21212. Oyen was the one who found it and she made the reservation in such short notice.
We took Uber from Apex Hotel to 21212.
The restaurant is in a cluster of townhouses on top of a hill.
We were all curious about what made this restaurant special.
My extra pounds usually stay only in my tummy but now, it’s beginning to show on my face. Parang ininiksyonan ang mukha ko ng fillers.
There were many stickers on the door showing some of the restaurant’s citations.
One dining room on the second floor looks more like a house. I like the interior.
A smaller room has a circular chair. The room has wallpaper with large winged people or angels.
The private room reserved for us has an oval table set for 7 persons.
What makes this room wow are the two french windows overlooking the garden at the back of the building. It’s picturesque.
The uphill garden is so lovely. I am guessing that this building used to be a residence and this room used to be a bedroom. Imagine waking up every morning to this garden view? It’s pretty calming.
If anyone sees me from the outside, baka matakot sa akin. Akalain may aswang.
There’s a fireplace in the room.
The owner of this one Michelin star restaurant must be fond of butterflies. The winged creatures are all over the place.
Giant butterflies on the carpet.
I would not think of having butterflies in my chandelier. It looks pretty though.
Pigs and butterflies go together
Maybe Michelin Star restaurants are also judged by how their toilets look and smell.
21212 certainly passed my criteria.
The toilet also has a window that overlooks the same garden. One can sit here and read books.
We can only wish to have this lovely view from our toilets.
The head waiter told us that this is also a hotel. They have 4 bedrooms on the third floor.
Our dining reservation was at 7:30 pm. We arrived at the restaurant ahead of our friends. They probably took a nap.
part 2 coming.
