The Mosque Kitchen Aug 14, 2011
Edinburgh's Mosque Kitchen used to be a well kept secret. Tucked around the back of the mosque, students and well informed festival goers could get a plastic plate of curry and rice for about five pounds. Well, the secret is out. The Mosque Kitchen has moved into a full sized cafe on Nicholson Square. We were surprised enough to wander around the back of the mosque to check it was the same place, and it is.
And it is still amongst the best, healthiest (olive oil, not ghee) and most affordable places to eat in the city. You queue up, canteen style, for curry ("meat" and "vegetable" and "daal", rather than anything more specific), still served on plastic plates and still very cheap. The food is excellent, light and neither too bland nor too spicy.
Although a little out of the centre of tourist Edinburgh, this is worth the detour, and it's very close to many of the beat comedy venues during the Festival in August.
