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

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

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

A Middle Eastern feast @ Damascena, Temple Row

If you ask any foodie in Birmingham where to go for epic Middle Eastern grub, the chances are the name Damascena might crop up. And when I say might I mean absolutely will. Having very much enjoyed my visit to the flagship cafe in Moseley Village earlier this year, I had high expectations of the… Continue reading A Middle Eastern feast @ Damascena, Temple Row

Product review: Feel Good Teas by Tea Pigs

Regular readers of my blog will be aware that I have a rather large life event on the horizon: I'm getting married in 4 weeks. Life has been incredibly busy of late - what with planning a Vegas wedding and my imminent hen do - so when I got an email from the folks at… Continue reading Product review: Feel Good Teas by Tea Pigs

Wholesome food and an adaptable menu @ The Rustic Cafe 

When you think of the best places for brunch in Birmingham you would be forgiven for not giving the crossroads by Lidl in the Spring Road area of Acocks Green much thought. Hardly known for its chic eateries, the area is largely ignored by foodies - ordinarily for good reason. I know when I usually… Continue reading Wholesome food and an adaptable menu @ The Rustic Cafe

A spicy lunch and Siamais revisited

Sometimes you stumble upon a restaurant and it just makes your heart a little happier, don't you think? It's rare but wonderful; you've never heard of a place and then all of a sudden you've been back ten times and tried half the menu. For me, that restaurant seems to be Siamais. I sort of… Continue reading A spicy lunch and Siamais revisited
