I had lunch today at wonderful new venture in the Acorn Centre, 1 junction Street, Leith, It is Scotland first social enterprise run by Sikh women; an outstanding cafe and takeway service. Lunch was one of the best curries I have tasted and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
The project is part of the wok of Sikh sanjog, an organisation dedicated to the well being and support of Sikh women. In a world of multi culturalism that is full of potential but also fraught with tensions, this group have grown from humble beginning some 20 years ago to offering a safe and respected place for a group that, by their own admission was once very excluded.
Enough of the polemic, just get yourself down to then Acorn Centre and try those curries. You won't regret it, I promise!
