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

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.

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.

Nakira Bar & Grill VIP launch party

You may have seen my previous blog revealing the first pictures from inside the newest restaurant to hit John Bright Street: Nakira Bar & Grill. It looked pretty swish, so I was delighted to receive a VIP invite to the official launch party, which took place last week.  Despite opening officially earlier this month the… Continue reading Nakira Bar & Grill VIP launch party
