Last Friday night we headed along to Revolution Bar in Edinburgh to check out their new menu. Nothing beats a nice meal out to end a week of work. The bar was busy, which is always a good sign, and there was a good ‘hello weekend’ atmosphere in the place. Even with the super loud stag party who were out for a very different night than us!
Our drinks order was taken right away and we were given time to look over the pretty extensive menu. It took a while to decide what we wanted to eat, there was just so much choice! After much deliberation we both went for burgers, I had the Smokin’ Bacon and Mark went for The Mother Clucker.
While we were waiting for our food to be served we got samples of sweet potato fries to try and the waitresses were handing out tasters of cocktails in shot glasses. The cocktail menu looked great, I was pretty gutted that I was driving as there were so many cocktails I wanted to sample!
So, onto the food. Oh. My. God! It was tasty, and the portion sizes were big. My burger was loaded with toppings including smokinnaise (? whatever that is), chorizo ketchup and wotsits…yup that’s right, wotsits! Mark’s burger was actually 2 burgers, a beef burger and a battered chicken fillet served on a brioche bun with the addition of sweet potato fries, also on the bun! It was definitely a knife and fork job.
Even though I was completely stuffed we decided to share a dessert, because you know, everyone has a second stomach for dessert right? Plus the Nutella Fluffwich sounded far too good to resist! We made the right decision, nutella, marshmallow fluff, powdered sugar and a blueberry compote – yummy! Worth feeling fit to burst for.
The staff were really friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back, the food was delicious and there are so many cocktails I really want to try out!
Thank you to Revolution Bar, Edinburgh for having us – our dinner was complimentary to review the new menu. All opinions are my own.
