Two Bad Asses, Sheep Guts, Well-Hung Beef, and the 25 Best Store Names in Edinburgh

I’ve been to many places around the world, but I’ve never seen a city with cooler store names than Edinburgh, Scotland. Here are the 25 best stores names that I saw on a recent trip. They run the gamut from clever and punny to downright descriptive.

“Well hung” and “tender!” That’s the Holy Grail of beef, I guess—like “powerful” and “easy-to-use” for geeks.
