TGI Fridays Christmas Dinner

I love TGI Fridays, so I couldn't wait to try their Christmas dinner menu. I went with my dad to the TGI Fridays at Fort Kinnard in Edinburgh. It was my first time to the Fort Kinnard TGI Fridays, who knew they had a New York taxi outside !!!

The Christmas meal is £19.99 for a 3 course meal with one of their Christmas drinks, or you can buy starter, main meal and dessert separately. 

I choose :


Jacks Christmas dinner sundae 

A sundae glass filled with pulled chicken, Jack Daniels sage & onion stuffing, and cranberry sauce between layers of mashed potato and topped with crispy fried sage and parsnip.

Main meal

Sesame Jack Frost chicken strips with fries

A huge portion of crispy chicken breast strips, tossed in Jack Daniel's® glaze, topped with chili flakes and toasted sesame seeds, pomegranate seeds and sprinkled with icing sugar served with crispy fries.


Warm apple and blackberry sundae 

Warm spiced fruit layered with crunchy amoretti biscuits, meringue, real dairy vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped cream.

Christmas drink 

Berry blitz mocktail 

Our festive fruit jingle! Fresh raspberries, blackberries, strawberries mixed with cranberry and blueberry juice then topped with Fridays foam.

The berry mocktail we got first and I found it really dry. I was still thirsty so I ordered a Pepsi aswell.

I found the Christmas dinner sundae tasted amazing. I did find the Christmas dinner as a starter quite filling, so I left the mashed potatoes or else I don't think I'd have managed my main meal and dessert. The main meal was nice with the icing sugar sprinkled over the chicken, looking Christmas - y.

TGI Fridays is the best Christmas dinner I've tasted, my only disappointment is getting my dessert half way through eating my main meal. By the time I got to eat my dessert it was like eating mushy milk.

Edinburgh Christmas 2016

My mum wanted to go and get tickets at Edinburgh playhouse to see Mamma Mia, so we headed into town. Then we went to look at the Christmas market. 

We stopped of for a quick McDonalds before heading to the Christmas market. How amazing are the Christmas cheese dippers ? I love those ! I had the Christmas cheese dippers, chips and an irn bru. I said to my mum "it feels weird looking out onto Edinburgh, compare to McDonald's Times Square view". My mum goes "this is our Times Square" haha.

Now time for some photos of Edinburgh Christmas :

The chocolate and marshmallow waffle tastes amazing ! I've tried toasting waffles and melting chocolate, with marshmallows and never tasted as good as these at the Christmas market.
