Adding Spice to Date Night at Voujon, Edinburgh

Alphabet Dating

Luke and I have been trying something a little different recently. In an effort to spend more time together and get out and do something different. We have been trying ‘alphabet dating’ taking turns each month with a different A-Z. Most recently it was my turn and we reached ‘C’ on our alphabet dating. With the colder weather creeping in it needed to be something appropriate. We picked a day, we picked a time and we were on our way. We were in for a day of countryside walks to Edinburgh’s Pentland Hills, a curry at Voujon* and a trip to Edinburgh’s famous comedy club, The Stand, for some big laughs in the evening.

Dinner at Voujon Indian Restaurant, Edinburgh

I’m a big fan of Indian food. I’ve been brought up in a family of spice lovers, so for me the hotter the better. Voujon got in touch and asked if we wanted to try out their menu; it timed perfectly with our date night. You can find Voujon tucked away in an un-suspecting shop front, which is a bit of a tardis inside when it comes to space!

First things first, considering what to have for mains we settled on some poppadum’s and a range of dips and mango chutney to begin. After much deliberation, we moved onto mains. I opted for the chicken bhuna, which is a medium strength tomato based dish garnished with onions, herbs and spices. I got my favourite naan bread on the side, peshwari. Luke decided on the lamb jaipuri, which is another rich dish, with a thick masala sauce and the lamb grilled in the tandoori until it falls apart.

The food was great, and definitely a secret hidden gem to be found in Edinburgh’s south side. The menu was also really reasonably priced, inline with other local Indian restaurants in the area. For a starter you can expect to pay around £5 a dish, mains are between £10-£15 on the classics menu, or try something a little more adventurous on their fusion menu. All sides are under 34, with traditional Indian desserts costing between £2-£5.

We enjoyed a complimentary meal for two at Voujon restaurant in exchange for a review. All thoughts are my own.
