Food of Valhalla

It was good to renew acquaintances with the Edinburgh Food Social at their excellent indoor market at the Biscuit Factory.


On this visit my eye was caught by a stall called Food of Valhalla which sounded like it might be worth checking out.

Their ethos is healthy food that connects us to and makes us think about our overall wellbeing. That manifested itself in the shape of a range of salads, although the catering company that sits behind the business offers menus across a range of different styles.

I opted for a mixed box (£4) which included Asian red cabaage slaw, Waldorf salad, and a German potato salad.

It was an extremely generous portion and looked likely to be a hearty eat.

The salads were varied in flavour, texture and components with freshness their comment element. I really enjoyed the potato salad. The others offered helpfully balancing crunch. It was an energising eat.

So overall, Food of Valhalla is an interesting new business offering fresh and healthy options. Their market stall is essentially a shop-window for the catering business – further menu details available at – so I’m not sure how often they plan to trade, but if you do catch them give them a try as their food is likely to please.
