An Indian feast for four @ Hen and Chickens

My favourite way to eat food is by sharing shed loads of it with good friends, and recently myself and some friends decided to head to the Jewellery Quarter and check out Hen and Chickens.

My list has never had less than 20 places (in Birmingham alone) on it at one time because for every one I manage to try I find a new one to add.

A festive jaunt around Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Meat free Monday options in Birmingham

Let's get one thing straight from the get go: it's absolutely no secret that I have a deep love affair with burgers and bacon. Meat is something I would not forgo indefinitely without a fight, but sometimes it's good to park up the protein for a few days and up your veggie intake. Apparently they're… Continue reading Meat free Monday options in Birmingham
