Grams is about to take (naked) healthy fast food to a whole new level.
16 Haymarket Terrace directly opposite the tram stop outside of Haymarket station in Edinburgh is the location of Grams first premises, and I can now tell you that it is officially open.
The decor is white meets black with a touch of dark wood and white tiles, simple yet individual.
The food ranges from delicious avocado toast breakfasts, to a range of different health boxes (including chicken, steak, and salmon), the sound of the baked sweet potatoes have been making my mouth water and lets not forget the star of the show, the ‘cheese’ cakes and slices, not only are they vegan but also gluten free.
Did you know that the floor is beautiful, why? Because that bad boy is my painting handy work and if you so much as scratch it…..haha just kidding (no I’m not).
I have watched Grams grow from an idea, to a business to having its own premises and I can’t wait to see where it takes itself next.
As you can tell it would be incredibly biased of me to write a review of Grams, so I thought it would be best for you to get to know the business yourself.
Now, I am going to go and wash the paint out of my hair.
Hope to see you there,
Meet Lewis the man behind Grams….
Affordable healthy foodcake (foodcake is a word).
Why the name Grams?
How much do you weigh? How much protein do you have? How much do you even lift bro? It’s all about the grams.
Where do you see Grams in five years?
Open a new shop that just sells avocado on toast for £10 a pop….that craze won’t end will it?
Out of the cakes and sweet treats you have made so far, what is your personal favourite?
Everyone loves the raw snickers and I’d probably agree with them
Give us three reasons why we should buy from Grams ?
1- I care about what I do and what ingredients I use. I strongly believe that you pay for what you get.
2 – I don’t post inspirational memes (only in irony)
3 – I had to trade my playstation in when starting Grams so I’d quite like a new one
If you had to eat anything in the world (other than Grams) for the rest of your life what would it be?
Pizza, all the pizza in the world. It’s so adaptable. Stick an egg on it = breakfast, stick some leaves on it = lunch. Dinner = infinite options
If you had to eat anywhere in Edinburgh for the rest of your life where would it be?
Ummm that’s tough. Somewhere that does chicken and poached eggs and pizza but not all at the same time…..wait…all at the same time would be just fine. Does Salt Cafe do pizza? Tell them they should. Salt Cafe
What is your biggest food vice?
It would either be millionaires shortcake or white chocolate. I’ll eat anything with white chocolate on. I’ve tried making a healthy white chocolate but it’s just impossible to get it tasting as dirty as the real thing
Favourite city for food other than Edinburgh?
Fill in the gaps : If I had to be food I would be….. Because….
If I had to be food I would be a potato Because they are pretty grumpy looking (Toy Story may have given me this opinion on potatos)
If you are going out for a drink in Edinburgh where do you head?
I don’t go out much but for cocktails and a nice place to sit and chat I’d probably go to Opium….Opium
You need a coffee, where is the first place in Edinburgh you think of?
Cairngorm at the moment, really nice coffee and more importantly they are right next to my house. CairngormCoffee
