The 'Deen Scene: Spring Menu Tasting at Revolution Bar

A note from Joelle... 

Once again, apologies for the camera quality. I dropped my camera, so have to make do with crappy iPhone 4s quality until I get a new one!
At night, Revolution Bar (or "Revs", to students) is a haven for colourful cocktails, loud music and endless trays of flavoured vodka shots.
But during the day, it's a beautiful kitchen restaurant with live music with a summery terrace feel to it.
I have not been dined in the Aberdeen Revolution Bar for a long time, and the revamp was a lovely surprise.
Spring Menu Tasting at Revolution Bar

Food highlights: 

Lobster ravioli - smothered in pesto, the ravioli is perfectly cooked with a generous amount of lobster and ricotta inside. I can't lie, I was a bit greedy and didn't really want to pass this dish round the group!
I didn't expect such a fancy, yet affordable dish from Revs, if i'm being totally honest!

Buttermilk-fried chicken strips - Really tender and golden chicken with a tasty mayo dip.

Macaroni cheese burger - you don't think it's going to work, but it actually does!

Calamari - Really tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I wasn't keen to try it at first because I've have some pretty dodgy calamari before, where it was all chewy and oily. But this was cooked to perfection and the garlic mayo dip complimented it really well.

Goats cheese bon bons - move over mozzarella sticks, it's all about another cheese. 

Whilst we wined, dined and chatted away, a guy with his guitar serenaded the terrace with his chilled renditions of current pop songs. It was such a nice atmosphere.
I will definitely be coming back with a few pals to try more of the menu.
Thanks for having me!
