How about, the rectal gland of a male deer? Kasturi is an exotic fragrance, otherwise known as deer musk, that has been highly prized since ancient times in South Asia. Its pleasant odour has penetrated to the heart of various cultures and their traditions, so maybe it’s about more than a name at Kasturi, found in Edinburgh’s West End on Shandwick Place. Kasturi’s setting creates an experience for the senses with whiffs (imaginary or otherwise) of its eponymous perfume, eclectic lighting and luxurious leather seats. Still, taste receives the most attention. There are elaborate vegetarian or carnivorous banquets befitting the restaurant’s air of historical opulence, but more modern Anglo-Indian favourites like mulligatawny are also represented, and guests can sniff something new like a whole pomfret Indian Ocean fish, marinated in a secret blend of spices, roasted in the tandoor oven and served on the bone.
