Edinburgh Larder goes East was a night within the first birthday week celebrations as well as a collaboration night with Barneys Beer. We had visited before (review here) and enjoyed the look of the place. It was £25 for 3 courses with a beer taster.
One bottle of Capital Porter and Volcano IPA between us to sample the beer along with our food. More info on Barneys Beer can be found HERE.
Marinated squid with gooseberries and beech coriander
Light and sweet tasting squid, small slices which meant it was easy to eat. The squid wasn't at all rubbery and tasted fresh.
Mildly spicy curry taste, delicious fresh and sweet cherry tomatoes (From Clyde Valley I believe) and crunchy cashews.
Slow cooked Gorgie Farm mutton shoulder in a thick spicy coconut sauce
Melt in the mouth and fall off the bone mutton matched perfectly with the thick coconut sauce.
Both Served with yellow rice, onion bhajis and lentils
Steamed coconut scented semolina with lemon balm ice cream
A light and refreshing dessert. Semolina with a hint of coconut. The lemon balm ice cream cleansed the palate.
Soft and Creamy cheese with anextremely crunchy textured base - and sticky. Jellied topping like a tea jelly, had gummi bear cola bottle taste mmm!
