Bhel Puri at Tuk Tuk

Another fantastic Indian tapas establishment (I will move on to other cuisines in a moment, I promise), this friendly BYOB restaurant in Bruntsfield has a range of vegan options. The menu isn’t the clearest though, so double check your choices with your server before you order. This is a great option for those on a budget though, because if you bring a party of four this Mothers Day, your Mum will eat for free.
