Cosy suppers @ Pasta Di Piazza, St Paul’s Square


restaurants, Review

Let’s be honest, Birmingham isn’t really synonymous with authentic Italian food. Having said that, I recently enjoyed a cosy supper at Pasta Di Piazza that warmed my cynical heart. I’ve had a fairly mixed experience with Italian food in central Birmingham, it must be said. While I’m a big fan of Laghi’s Deli, I’ve had […]

A week of food and drink in Birmingham #5


Ramblings

Last week was a busy one. As well as celebrating 7 years since I stuck my claws into Ian, I had plenty on the work and social calendars too. From a super swish cheese and wine dinner to an anniversary noodle fix, here’s six of the highlights from my eating escapades around the city centre […]

Colmore Food Festival @ Victoria Square, City Centre


Events

I loved Colmore Food Festival last year. That may partly be down to being champagne drunk at lunchtime, but mainly it’s because this annual food festival brings something unique to Birmingham. The food fest returned to its home at Victoria Square for the 8th time on Friday, bringing the sunshine and good times with it […]

Beers and bar snacks @ Kilder, Digbeth


Bars & Pubs, Review

If you’ve not been to Kilder in Digbeth yet you’re seriously missing out. Like, seriously. From the brains behind Original Patty Men, Kilder is a beer, cider and natural wine bar serving up some knock out food and booze under a railway arch. With a snack menu including doorstop cheese toasties, pork pies and plates […]

Where to watch the England games during the World Cup


Events

It’s that time again, when we all rediscover our patriotism for a few weeks and start singing Three Lions with more enthusiasm than Russia’s department of poisoning. Yes, the World Cup 2018 is upon us, with the first England match kicking off tomorrow. I don’t claim to be any kind of a football expert, but […]

A weekend of fun and food in Rome, Italy


BYB Travels

There are some experiences that stay with you for a lifetime. Getting married in Las Vegas was certainly pretty epic, but I can now add a weekend of fun and food in Rome to this list. Rome has been on my ‘travelling to-do list’ for a very long time. For various reasons it’s taken me […]

Mediterranean feasting @ Don Diego, Edgbaston


restaurants, Review

The Husband and I recently visited Don Diego in Edgbaston for the first time, for a double date with fellow food lover George and her fiancé, Dave. I had actually been meaning to try the food at Don Diego for a while, having seen some lovely looking dishes flying around on social media. I can […]

An eccentric hidden gem @ The Ruin, Digbeth


Bars & Pubs, Review

Everyone has their favourite Digbeth hangout. I’ve always been a total fangirl for Digbeth Dining Club myself, but I’ve found a new favourite in the shape of The Ruin. Found on Floodgate Street, The Ruin manages to combine an old school boozer with your mad aunt’s back room circa 1974. It’s loud, intentionally a bit […]
