PHOTOS: Burger Fest @ The Bond, Digbeth


Events, Pop ups

If there’s anything guaranteed to get me out of bed on a Saturday it’s the promise of dripping, cheesy, filthy burgers. Lots of them.

Wayland’s Yard revisited (a lot)


Cafes, Ramblings, Review

Way back in March I attended a blogger event to mark the launch of Wayland’s Yard on Bull Street. It’s been six month since the second Wayland’s Yard opened up (the flagship branch is in Worcester) in the heart of the business district and it’s managed to wangle its way firmly into my heart. I […]

The food fest returned to its home at Victoria Square for the 8th time on Friday, bringing the sunshine and good times with it […]

Weekday brunch @ Primivito, Barwick Street


Bars & Pubs, Review

A few weeks ago I visited the newly revamped Primivito to check out the recently launched brunch menu. Found just yards from Hotel du Vin and Snow Hill Station, this long serving bar come casual bistro is a popular weekday hangout for the banking district. I’m used to seeing the after work crowd spilling out […]
