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 […]

Post holiday pick me up @ Wagamama, New Street  


Review

Thank god for wagamama. Getting back from a sunshine break often leads to a case of holiday blues; returning from a dream honeymoon is next level torture. Having spent the past two weeks in nothing less than 25 degree sun surrounded by cocktails and gorgeous food to say I was gutted about getting back to […]

Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden 


Events, restaurants

I have a confession: before the Blogger Banquet event recently I hadn’t actually eaten at Chung Ying Garden.  I’ve walked past it a million times over the years as I’ve trundled through China Town, (usually on my way to Nightingales after too many adult lemonades) but had never made it through the bright red doors. […]

Oodles of noodles @ Chop and Wok


Delis & Takeaway, Review

Free food at Chop and Wok to brighten a bad day! What with failing my driving test last week, it was nice to get some good news via Twitter. This good news involved eating, and better still meant free food. Do you know what’s better than free food? Absolute bugger all, that’s what. After a pretty […]

As those of you who live or work in Birmingham all know, on Friday the weather was absolutely beautiful. From the moment I woke up at 7am the sun was shining and Birmingham, once again, managed to look like one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. I decided to get outside and enjoy […]

What’s the story, morning glory?


Ramblings

I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of Pho, the Vietnamese-inspired restaurant that opened last year in Grand Central. It’s an ideal spot for a quick bite to eat with friends, or as a solo dining experience before or after catching a train at New Street station.  Having always been a huge […]
