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 […]

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 […]

A spicy lunch and Siamais revisited


restaurants, Review

Sometimes you stumble upon a restaurant and it just makes your heart a little happier, don’t you think? It’s rare but wonderful; you’ve never heard of a place and then all of a sudden you’ve been back ten times and tried half the menu. For me, that restaurant seems to be Siamais brindleyplace. I sort […]

Healthy lunch @ Coffee Tales Jewellery Quarter


Cafes, Review

I’ve loved the Jewellery Quarter since my days in marketing when I first left university and moved to this wonderful city. There’s quite a vibrant food and drink scene now compared to when I worked in The Big Peg many moons ago, and I’ve recently decided to make more effort to venture over this side […]

Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club Birmingham


Bars & Pubs, restaurants, Review

July saw the launch of a summer menu at Cosy Club Birmingham so I went along to sample some of the new dishes available alongside a few cocktails. For those unfamiliar with this bar come restaurant, it’s an eclectic mix of plush furnishing, peculiar paintings, and over the top decor. It manages to feel like a vintage […]
