Having recently come under new management, spacious and elegantly high-ceilinged Rocksalt appears to be undergoing a process of wedding its repertoire of more typical lunchtime favourites to an increasing Turkish influence brought in with the new owners. Amid one of Leith’s more attractively spacious dining areas, a standard all-day breakfast menu of fry-ups and French toast is extended to include eggs Benedict and Florentine at the weekend, while long-serving mains include reasonably priced salads, burgers and omelettes. Most pride, however, appears to have been taken in the authentic mezze dishes and a hearty homemade moussaka, all of which are freshly homemade in the kitchen onsite, while the baklava is satisfyingly nutty and honey-smothered.
