Revolution - Bath Food Review
Posted on: 2016-08-25
On Wednesday I went to Revolution on George street to take a look at their new menu and sample it for myself. Check out my review below.
Being a fan of every ingredient I had to opt for the Chilli Jam Chicken Salad, but with a twist. Although I'm not vegetarian I was eager to try out the halloumi with this salad, substituted for the chicken, because different restaurants serve this squeaky cheese in different ways. As soon as the plate was put in front of me I was overjoyed. One of my worries when dining out is portion size, but the slices of halloumi were almost big enough to be mistaken for two chicken breasts. The cheese was as salty as it should be, so no disappointment there, and it accompanied the sweet flavours on the plate wonderfully. It especially went well with the sweetness of the orange chunks and the peppers. The salad also features smashed avocado, goat's cheese, sunblushed tomatoes, cucumber, rocket, endive (a type of leaf) and a chilli jam glaze to top it off. If you fancy something different you even have the option of substituting the chicken for prawns, rather than halloumi.
Revolution, as the name suggests, thrive on producing foods that are unique and putting together combinations you wouldn't expect. Needless to say the mix of fruit and veg in this salad was out of the ordinary but it worked. Once you start eating it it's too mourish to stop, and as the portion size was plenty I was happily full after devouring the whole meal. Not only was it super delicious but it was gluten free and under 600 calories so if you're watching what you eat, or even if you're not, this is the perfect meal for you. You'll never settle for a boring lettuce and tomato salad ever again, especially for the reasonable price of £9.95.
The garlic fries that I ordered to go with it, fries go surprisingly well with salad, had a strong delectable aroma of garlic as soon as they hit the table. Although when I started eating them they weren't as garlicky as they could have been, the subtlety of the taste was still pleasant and on the plus side I wasn't left with horrible garlic breath afterwards! The fries are well worth the price for the large portion, at only £2.95.
The waiter was friendly and the food came out within 15 minutes of ordering, but that might be to do with the fact that there was only one other table in at that time because it had just turned 12pm. This is clearly a good time to come when you're starving though as there's no waiting around.
When you dine here you can see for yourself how it lives up to its name and really gives your taste buds something to remember.
