Healthy lunch choices @ Pho, Grand Central

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 bit more trickier than you first imagine. … Continue reading Healthy lunch choices @ Pho, Grand Central

Happy first birthday to Rofuto (Park Regis Hotel)

I was recently invited to attend the first birthday of Rofuto, and after being promised an evening of cocktails and sushi (despite my wedding dress diet woes) I made my way gleefully to Park Regis Hotel, also the home of 1565. I'd heard a lot about this skyline restaurant before the event and was really excited to… Continue reading Happy first birthday to Rofuto (Park Regis Hotel)

Oktoberfest @ The Old Crown, Digbeth

Last night I celebrated Friday the best way I know how: slurping beer surrounded by meat. To put this into some kind of context, I attended Digbeth Oktoberfest at The Old Crown, which saw the beer garden transformed into a Bavarian themed bar packed with tasty food and beer galore.  Offering an array of theme-appropriate food… Continue reading Oktoberfest @ The Old Crown, Digbeth

A laid back Indian dining experience @ Tamatanga  

If like me you've been walking past the colourful boards hiding Tamatanga for the last month (and been dying to get inside) this week I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek.  The latest 'Indian streetfood' style restaurant to pop up in Birmingham city centre, Tamatanga is the new sibling of the award-winning restaurant… Continue reading A laid back Indian dining experience @ Tamatanga

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

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 my mind the strip of bars and takeaways is more suited… Continue reading Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

The Lenchford Inn, Worcester

A quick post today regarding a recent visit I had to The Lenchford Inn. Technically this place isn't in Birmingham (there's nothing technical about it; it's in Worcestershire) but it's a lovely riverside setting for dinner, so I thought I'd pop a bit of information on here in case it's of interest/use to anyone.  The… Continue reading The Lenchford Inn, Worcester

Attention lovers of brunch: there is a new cafe in Digbeth offering healthy but delicious food! Set in the Custard Factory, Kanteen is a new start up and it's bloody brilliant.  It launched officially yesterday (22nd Sept) and I popped along on the opening day to check out what was on offer.

Steak club @ Bar + Block

After a brilliant, but incredibly busy, weekend I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself at the start of last week. Don't get me wrong, most of it was self inflicted (my hen do was epic; I thought I was dying until Wednesday) but I was most definitely in need of a post-weekend pick… Continue reading Steak club @ Bar + Block
