It’s as hundreds of thousands of Swifties prepare to see the American superstar as she prepares to perform three shows in Edinburgh from June 7-9.

Fans can try the “Tequila Swift” cocktail, or enjoy special menu items including “Taycos” available with Who’s Afraid of Little Old Bean, Abodo Tofu & Pickled Onion and Carne Asada Steak It Off.

These could be paired with sides including Mexican Tim McSlaw or Miss Ameri-Salsa or finished with a Death By A Thousand Churros dessert.

The limited menu at Topolabamba on Lothian Road will be available from Thursday, June 6 to Monday, June 10, with Swift’s Eras Tour expected to boost the UK economy by almost £1 billion.

Iain Gallie from Taylolabamba said: “What better way to pay tribute to the world’s biggest pop star than by renaming our restaurant in her honour. Taylor Swift means almost as much to the city’s music fans as Topolabama does to the capital’s diners, and we’re sure she’d approve of this small gesture to show our appreciation for her bringing shows to the city.

“The impact she is going to have on Edinburgh – and Scotland as a whole – cannot be underestimated. Hotels are completely sold out, and public transport has even been extended with Scotrail adding additional services. Everyone is talking about it, it’s bigger than the Edinburgh Festival!

“Lunch or dinner at Taylolabamba will be the perfect way to celebrate the around the Murrayfield concerts, and give everybody coming to the capital fun a reason to Tay, Stay, and Slay in the capital.”

To enjoy Taylolabamba, Swifties can book ahead via the restaurant’s website.
