Edinburgh has some great high end restaurants including a number with Michelin stars which have gained international acclaim in their chosen culinary milieu. Yet, however beautifully crafted and exquisitely prepared their dishes are, sometimes they just do not hit the spot.
Eating is one of the simple pleasures of life and as such it is unsurprising that often it is simple home cooked food that we crave. Home style cooking should not imply a lower standard of cuisine, if anything the skill in preparing traditional well spun recipes to the highest standard is one which cannot be underestimated.
Thankfully there are a number of highly successful restaurants in Edinburgh offering home style dishes from a number of cultures. For classic British home cooking, you cannot get much more traditional and delicious than the wonderful Mums which serves sausages and pies with some of the best mashed potato you are ever likely to taste.
For a more exotic, but equally satisfying meal why not sample the delicious Malaysian street food of Kampong Ah Lee, one of Edinburgh’s best kept secrets, or feast on one of Khushi’s richly spiced curries. Whatever your taste, if you crave the honest pleasure of lovingly prepared home style cooking there is bound to be something on our list for you.
