Continuing the trend for high-quality dining options from around the world springing up all the way down Leith Walk, Casa Amiga popped up towards the end of 2014 specialising in Portuguese cakes and bakes. The long list of savoury items includes dense, chorizo-packed bread and baccalao fritters, plus homemade soup of the day and corn bread. More than likely it’ll be the promise of sweet treats that entice casual passersby, in particular the mound of pastel de natas – Portuguese curd tarts – that are crisp, creamy and every bit as good as the ones to be found in Lisbon. Not easy to find in Edinburgh, they alone are worth the trip down Leith Walk. Coupled with beautiful cakes, great coffee, wifi and an easy-going vibe, it looks set to become a local favourite with Leithers.
