Review | Ed's Easy Diner Edinburgh

I planned to try Ed's Easy Diner next time I went to Glasgow, as I've seen bloggers talk about it and there's one in Glasgow. I was looking on the website and there's an Ed's Easy Diner in Edinburgh my city at the Fort, which I didn't know about! I didn't know there was one in Edinburgh. I used to go to the Fort when I had my car, but since I don't have a car I don't go to the Fort as much. Father's Day was coming up, so I thought I could take my dad there. I txt my Dad on Sunday asking if he wanted to go to Ed's Easy Diner, no reply and he ended up going to the highland show so I assumed he wasn't going. Then on Monday I said to my dad thanks for replying to my txt. He goes what txt. He said he didn't see it, so obvious has some crappy phone. He had to go into txt to see he had a txt, so he finally agreed to go. 

They've rebuilt one side of the fort with different food places last October - November and the website says it opened October last year, so I thought it was on the new built side. When my Dad drive there I couldn't see it, but it's ok the other side of the Fort by the road.

I told my dad to pose with the woman statue lol
I said he needs to smile more, then a staff member ran in lol and his smile got worse each photo I took after take, so I gave up.
We were seated next to one of the jukeboxes which would be great if they worked, but had out of order sign. 

Then came blogging problems. There neon lights going round the outside of the room, everytime I tried to take a photo of the menu I was left was lines going across the menu. I sat for ages trying to get the perfect shot. My dad took the menu and goes do you want it and the staff member said I'll leave it, as she's taking a photo. I kind of wish we were seated in the middle of the room so I could have got a better photo of the menu.

I ordered the vanilla milkshake, as my friend Sheona told me to try one of the milkshakes. I didn't want to go for anything to major flavour, so thought I'd stick with a flavour I like vanilla. They are quite pricey at £4.35, (it says on the menu 2 glasses per serving) though I did get 3 size of the glassss in the photo out of it. The vanilla milkshake really is the best. The bottom of the container was still ice cream, if you prefer ice cream.

I picked the cujan vegetable burger for the main meal and my Dad went for the classic. I don't think the menu isn't the clearest. When I looked at it online took me abit to realise Ed's plate is the meal and solo is the burger on its own. My dad agreed the meal what I was having, then said he was leaving the chips. I was like "hey dad I'm paying like an extra £4 for them" haha.

I found the cujan burger quite spicey, so next time I may go for the chickpea & quinoa or one of the pastas. I think the chips are quite basic, but the onion rings are so different from other places I've tried and tasty. The place is styled around 1950's and American, so if you like that you'll love Ed's Easy Diner.
