A couple of weeks ago I went into Birmingham for the Vintage Set festival event and being an evening event, needed some food before it started of course! Kim and I took advantage of Ed's Diner at Selfridges for our pre-event food.
I love the American diner theme, having never been to America before the whole old-fashioned diner is always quite appealing to me. Ed's diner have really made sure that everything within the restaurant fits the theme perfectly, from the fully working jukeboxes on the tables to the red leather booths to the menu sign.
I had a blue cheese burger meal, which came with chips and onion rings. The chips were really big and chunky which I wasn't expecting, as American style chips are usually skinny french fries. It was a good burger, it didn't really blow me away (I blame places like Patty and Bun for raising my burger expectations too much - that's next on my list of places to try!), but with somewhere like Ed's Diner you're partly going for the experience too.
I did have an oreo milkshake which was amazing. It came in a really traditional metal milkshake jug, which just added to the theme even further. At the Selfridges restaurant, you can sit in a bar section and order milkshakes to drink there, which I might do on my next shopping trip!
Over all, Ed's diner was a nice quick meal. I would recommend popping there for a catch up with friends as the theme and atmosphere are really fun :)
Have you been to Ed's Diner before? What did you think? x
