Avocado and butternut squash rojak at Treacle Edinburgh

Last time we visited, the food at Treacle was delicious. Mr B gobbled up his pho, which I just want to say is the prettiest bowl of noodles I’ve ever found in Edinburgh!

Meanwhile, I ordered the butternut squash rojak. I must admit, I didn’t really know what a rojak was before I visited Treacle – but what I had was absolutely gorgeous. The mango and the chilli gave the perfect balance of spicy with sweet and I would gladly order it again next time we visit.

Treacle has a really solid selection for vegans that is imaginative and flavourful. Pair that with a couple of tasty cocktails and a great atmosphere, and you’ve got a perfect evening on your hands. Well worth a visit!
