Hello everyone. I was recently invited along to Revolution Edinburgh to try out a meal from their new menu. Revolution Edinburgh is somewhere I've frequented since starting at Edinburgh University, in fact its even where I had my first legal drinks. Its just known locally as 'Vodka Rev'. Their cocktails are delicious and who can avoid a birthday cake flavoured shot on their 18th. I've never had food there before but I know that one of my flatmates is a big fan and regularly has lunch there with some friends.
Revolution Edinburgh has recently launched a new food menu and there are a few new cocktails to go alongside it. I ordered the Smoke Shed Pork Sandwich: Chipotle pulled pork, house slaw and bbq crackling puffs on a brioche bun with fries. Stuart had the Pepper Jack burger: cheddar, peppercorn sauce, onion rings and mayo on a brioche bun with fries. He also added some pulled pork to it. We were both really impressed with the food. My pulled pork was so delicious and the portion size was just right. I finished my food so quickly because I practically wolfed it down! The fries look a bit small in the photo but they were a lot more than they look, some of the best fries I've had in Edinburgh. I washed mine down with a Midsummer Mule, my date opting for a coke because he was driving! I'm a big fan of the classic Moscow Mule, the Midsummer Mule has a bit of a fruity twist. Strawberry infused vodka with lime juice and ginger beer. It was lovely!
We were both pretty full after our main course but after seeing the dessert menu we couldn't say no. We decided to share the salted caramel chocolate fondue which comes with strawberries, bananas, marshmallows and sweet dough sticks. There was a big thick layer of salted caramel on the top which you broke through to gooey chocolate. This was absolutely AMAZING. The only thing was that the pot with the chocolate in it was very big! We only used about 1/4 of the chocolate so it seemed a bit wasteful! Other than that it was perfect and the rest of the desssert menu also looks good! The banoffee fluffwich sounds insane!
Revolution Edinburgh is located at 30a Chambers Street, across from the National Museum. The food is amazing and so are the drinks, I would definitely recommend it.
