revolution bar, collingwood st. newcastle

22/07/2014

so here i am dipping my toe into the pool of food blogging, and i must say i quite enjoyed it. the lovely people from revolution bars invited me down last week to try the new summer menu and who would turn that kind of opportunity down? i have been to revolution for food quite a few times; as on mondays they do 50% off food until 7pm, and i've always enjoyed it but normally i just would pick something to share such as a pizza. so this time it was nice to have a good look at the menu and decide to try something new and interesting. broaden my horizons and all that jazz. even though i was offered to try the cocktail menu also, due to driving i chose the 'strawberry nojito' the non-alcoholic alternative. it was super refreshing with the addition of mint and lime, plus the absence of alcohol didn't bother me at all. now to get to the good stuff, the food. for my main i ordered the 'fried chicken wrap' (the diet was on hold) with a portion of 'skinny fries' and 'green salad' to share. the idea of fruit being in with a salad would normally be my worst nightmare, but the host recommended it to me and when it came boy was i surprised. it added a light, refreshing touch to my meal with a hint of sweetness from the apples but wasn't overpowering at all. i wouldn't really recommend trying it if you haven't already, when i go back i'll definitely be adding it to my order.

of course after i had cleaned the plate i still had room in my tum for dessert, so i opted for the 'chocolate and blueberry fluffwich'. this again is something i wouldn't normally go for but was excited to try. my first initial response when it was placed on the table was that as far as a dessert goes there is just far too much. although it would be great to go for if you are a sharer (or a big dessert fan!). the 'fluffwich' was chocolate, marshmellow doughy goodness that was super tasty but again i could never have been able to finish off the whole plate. the blueberry sauce that accompanied it for dipping i felt like it was too big for the dessert, and for me i would have preferred it in a pouring jug to add the amount i wanted.

overall, i thoroughly enjoyed my experience at revolution. the menu includes something for everyone and there are a variety of choices for vegetarians and if you are eating gluten free there is also something for you too! so what do you think is this somewhere you would go? i really do recommend it as it has a great relaxed atmosphere inside, the waiters were really attentive and most importantly the food is awesome.
