Eastern Edinburgh has exciting eating options wherever you look, but few parts of Scotland's capital are as geared up to gourmet dining as Dalkeith. Restaurants in the ‘burgh and the nearby area stretch from unmissable Indians through to contemporary British brasserie-bars, and even Brazilian barbecues. And with high-end, mid-range, and down to earth spots to pick, everyone can find a place to eat which satisfies both their tastebuds and their wallet. Just have a look on Quandoo's Dalkeith restaurants selection, and you won't come up empty handed.
When the hoar frost creeps across the gardens, and the snell has set in for the winter, nothing warms you up like a curry, and Dalkeith's restaurants have some of the finest curry chefs in Midlothian. If you need a spice infusion, places like Bombay Lounge will supply it in style. Check out unique chef's specials like balti sauces featuring pineapple and sultanas, as well as a plethora of veggie curries - or just go for old favourites cooked to perfection by the area's masala masters. One thing's for sure – when the temperature drops, there's no better place to be.
Along with acclaimed curry houses, Dalkeith's restaurants selection includes some stellar options which take their inspiration from much closer to home. For instance, bars like Beetroot in nearby Bonnington specialise in sourcing their meat and veg from Scottish producers and they conjure up new spins on traditional staples. With appetising dishes like paprika-coated lambs' liver with black pudding mash – these high-class spots show off Scots specialities and some of Edinburgh's most impressive kitchen chops. And with cocktails, wines, and plenty of beers to lubricate the evening, they are fabulous venues to meet with mates.
But Quandoo doesn't just make it easy to book the finest restaurants Dalkeith has to offer. You'll also find options in eastern Edinburgh in general, opening up a galaxy of tastes for you to sample. For example, you can make a date to try some Brazilian churrasco barbecue in Haymarket, or head over to Arniston for an Italian feast. Edinburgh has attracted first-class chefs from France, Mexico, Nepal, and many more countries – so explore its culinary culture with the help of Quandoo.
