Food | Birthday Brunch at Revolution!

Sunday, 23 July 2017

It was my 24th birthday on the 20th July. First of all I can't believe how quick this year has gone, let alone the last 24. The last two birthdays I've been away from home which I've really enjoyed they were incredible experiences (I also blogged about them you can find paris here and our overnight stay in a zoo here) This year, I wanted to be at home with our dog and have a super chilled day. It was really nice, my boyfriend organised a cute little treasure hunt for me to find my pressies which was so cute and the end main present was a gold iPad which I was soooo happy with it will definitely help when it comes to blogging! 
We decided to do my birthday brunch the day after my birthday. Originally, it was supposed to be on the day but we were so chilled and content we ended up staying in.
We decided to check out a new restaurant called Revolution. There are quite a few of these chains dotted around the UK but its relatively new to our form so we checked the one local to us on their website and the terraced looked SO pretty and the food sounded amazing so our decision was ,ade pretty quick.
The interior is definitely unique and it has a super rustic outdoorsy feel which I love. It has cute hanging lights which I imagine look super cute and cosy at night time! it has the prettiest terrace with a huge feature wall full of foliage and an open ceiling to complete the outside feel.
One thing I love about this place, they have free ice cold water for you to have on your table if you choose, I love that option. I had Appletiser with my food but while we were choosing what to order off the menu we had a cocktail each. My boyfriend went for the 'Salted Caramel Mudshake' It was incredible and I'm gutted I didn't grab one on the way out! Its like a salted caramel milkshake with a splash of vodka which sounds weird but its amazing, like an extra special frappe! I went for the 'Blue Movie' cocktail, which consisted of Absolut Berri Açaì vodka, Blue Curaçao, lemon, apple juice topped off with lemonade it was so such a refreshing cocktail, perfect for summer! They have a couple of quirky cocktails I'd like to try when I go back (one even comes with a rubber duck sitting on top!) 

The food. Oh my the food, We opted for breaded king prawns and some calamari with aioli as sides instead of starters which tastes AMAZING super fresh super tender not chewy in the slightest which I sometimes find with calamari, They were both gorgeous.
Mains, My boyfriend got the 'Classic Steak Sandwich' which included huge slices of rump steak - cooked amazingly, mustard, red onion chutney and crispy onions all inside a pretzel roll - with fries! I tried a bit and honestly it was insane the steak and the flavours were incredible and I love the pretzel roll!
I went for the 'Brooklyn Chicken' which is buttermilk fried chicken, streaky bacon, smoked cheddar, fried pickles and barbecue sauce. I switched the barbecue sauce for mayo and I didn't have any pickles - yes I'm fussy! but they were more than happy to customise my order as its all made fresh :) win!
The burger as you can see is pretty huge but it was so tasty! I tried so hard to demolish it all but with the sides we had aswell I would've burst! The bacon was actually amazing and they flavour their food so so well, The chicken was cooked amazingly too. I had mine with fries also and they are my favourite type of fries (like TGI's fries but better!) I have already decided what I want to try next on their menu, they have a burger called 'Smoking' Bacon' which consists of a juicy beef burger, smoked cheddar, chorizo ketchup, streaky bacon (obv!), smokinnaise, crispy onions and ... was for it ... wotsits! yes wotsits as in my favourite crisps ever. If you haven't even had a worst sandwich I tell you now go make one, its the best crisp sandwich you'll ever make I promise you.
This is definitely going to be a new casual 'date night' spot for us. Somewhere local, with a good atmosphere and have amazing food. Its not all burgers and mighty sandwiches though, they have everything you could want from chicken curries, fish and chips to pizza and superfood salads! You can even find sharing platters of seafood, nachos or anything else you choose. I'd definitely recommend this place I'm 100% going back, I loved the food and it is such a cool unique place to visit and to chill out over some drinks and food.
