I’d had a tip that Milk Juicery had opened on good form on Queensferry Street, so when I found myself hungry in that part of town I popped in to give it a look.
A narrow corridor of a place, it has been kitted out in a rather modish style with chipboard to the fore. The lightsabre lighting is quite fun, though. I rather liked it.
The menu features “superbowls” which have nothing to do with American sports other than them likely being popular with exponents of those pursuits if they’re keen to maintain a healthy diet.
I opted for the one with mixed beans at its core, but there were other varieties that had pulled pork, chicken and the like as their centrepiece.
I ordered an espresso which was pretty rubbish but it’s not really a coffee place – more juices and smoothies. It came as part of the lunchtime deal with the bowl for a very reasonable £6.
The presentation on the bowl was a pretty rudimentary set of rows, so that could use a little improvement.
It proved very good eating, though, with a good blend of bits and bobs including avocado, radish, nicely seasoned rice, carrot, broccoli and beetroot. It was fresh and quite delightful.
So overall, Milk Juicery looks to be a pleasing new place offering freshly healthy options. I enjoyed my visit and would recommend it to you next time you’re looking for somewhere new to try.
