Fried chicken @ Bonehead, John Bright Street


restaurants, Review

“Gourmet fried chicken” is now a thing in Birmingham, thanks to Bonehead. Sharing the same part of John Bright Street as Cherry Reds, everyone’s been losing their marbles over Bonehead’s opening since Santa pranced off back to Lapland. When it opened it was packed out for a month or so, and I heard mixed reviews. […]

Independent Birmingham Festival @ The Bond, Digbeth


Events, Pop ups, Review

You know your fella knows you well when, instead of flowers, he surprises you with tickets to the Independent Birmingham Festival for a day of eating. Set up within The Bond in Digbeth, the Independent Birmingham Festival celebrated all that is brilliant when it comes to Brum’s indi scene. I bang on relentlessly about my […]

Ramen revelations @ Tonkotsu, Selfridges


restaurants, Review

I finally paid a visit to Tonkotsu in Selfridges after seeing some Instagram posts that made me hungry a few months ago. Located in the food hall, in spite of the pretty imagery truth be told I didn’t have particularly high expectations. After all, it’s just noodle soup isn’t it? No, no it isn’t. Tonkotsu […]

Indian street food @ Rola Wala, Selfridges


restaurants, Review

Rola Wala has replaced Izza Pizza in the Selfridges food court, and I’ve been down to try its Indian street food offerings. To be honest, I rolled my eyes a bit when I heard yet another Indian street food venue was opening. It’s not that I don’t like them (I would happily eat dosa on […]

Wings Wednesday @ Original Patty Men


Ramblings, restaurants, Review

You know Original Patty Men serve up some decent burgers at the weekend, but did you know they’re now open midweek and knocking out some pretty epic chicken wings? I got wind of Wings Wednesday through a combination of Twitter posts and my pal Chris (otherwise known as The Fat Foodie) who lives for fried […]

Best chicken wings in Birmingham


Bars & Pubs, Pop ups, Ramblings

I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for the best chicken wings I can find, and I’ve eaten enough now to share some of my favourites. The seven places below are offering some of the best chicken wings in Birmingham city centre, in my opinion. From crispy fried wings dipped in blue cheese to grilled whole […]

Disappointing menu changes @ Bodega


Ramblings, restaurants, Review

Bodega has changed its menu, and I’m not a fan. Yup, you heard me. My love affair with Bodega has come to an end. A crashing, disappointing end. As anyone who regularly reads this blog will know, I’ve been a long standing fan of this Bitters n Twisted venue. I’ve championed it and defended it […]

Thai food @ Sabai Sabai, City Centre


restaurants, Review

I have a longstanding love affair with Asian cuisine and more specifically Thai food; this stems from my university days in Leicester. I had naff all money to my name at 19 – largely due to a fondness for snakebite and Lambert & Butler – but whatever I could rustle up from my part time […]

Alternative date nights in Birmingham


Bars & Pubs, Pop ups, Ramblings

Today I’m chuntering about alternative date nights in Birmingham. Whether you’ve been together since school or you’re swiping your way through the dating gene pool to find ‘the one,’ date nights are something most of us enjoy. I love a date night, mainly because they inevitably involve food, but I think there’s more to them […]

Remaining at […]

Indian street food @ Mowgli, Grand Central 


restaurants, Review

I first discovered the joy of Mowgli one rainy evening in Manchester earlier this year. An enjoyable experience, I was won over by the pretty interior and wholesome flavours, so when the Birmingham branch opened in October my fond memories made a visit inevitable. Grabbing some foodie friends for a post-wedding debrief, we headed to Grand […]

Healthy lunch choices @ Pho Grand Central


restaurants, Review

Have you tried Pho Grand Central yet? Whilst it’s lovely to eat a big juicy burger or a cheese laden pizza (obviously) sometimes I want a nice healthy lunch. This in principle sounds extremely simple, however finding places in Birmingham city centre that offer interesting, tasty and satisfying healthy lunches can actually be a little […]

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio


restaurants, Review

Recently we took a trip to Del Villaggio on Broad Street. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I’d not spent much time in that area of the city. In […]
