I’ve written about Mother India’s cafe before. We went there in August 2010, after wine tasting at the fringe. Now its becoming a habit. This year we had an evening of Portugese wine tasting followed by a curry at Mother India.
The wine tasting is organised by Edinburgh Wine School and held in the City Chambers during the Fringe. We tasted 6 wines, 1 sparking, 2 white, 2 red and a dessert wine. Unfortunately, I have lost the wine list but perhaps the most memorable wine was a pink sparkling wine made by Cliff Richard (yes, Sir Cliff, Granny’s heart-throb) at his winery in the Algarve. It was really excellent, available from Waitrose and not particularly expensive. Overall, this is a great and instructive evening where you get to try wines that you would never normally have.
Back to Mother India’s. 4 of us had 8 small dishes – you can see what we had from the photo below.
The atmosphere in Mother India’s cafe is always great, food is good and always reliable. No booking but not usually too long to wait.
