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)

Edinburgh Gin dinner @ Moor Hall Hotel & Spa

To say I had a lovely evening on Friday would be an understatement and a half, I can tell you. Having received an invitation to attend an Edinburgh Gin event (you can read all about the last one here) at Moor Hall Hotel & Spa, I had a feeling I might be in for a… Continue reading Edinburgh Gin dinner @ Moor Hall Hotel & Spa

A Taste of Vietnam @ Circle Restaurant, Birmingham Hippodrome 

There are some evenings that you just know are going to stay with you for a long time, and on Thursday I was lucky enough to have one such night.

Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden 

I have a confession: before the Blogger Banquet event recently I hadn't actually eaten at Chung Ying Garden. I've walked past it a million times over the years as I've trundled through China Town, (usually on my way to Nightingales after too many adult lemonades) but had never made it through the bright red doors. That… Continue reading Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden

Second birthday celebrations @ Umami

There were 2 main reasons why I was excited to be invited to celebrate the birthday of Umami Indian Kitchen recently. Firstly because I have heard great things about this restaurant, and secondly because I love Indian food. Like, I really do love it. So when I arrived at the Harborne restaurant one sunny evening… Continue reading Second birthday celebrations @ Umami

Summer menu tasting @ Marmalade

One of the best things about 'working from home' is that I'm not confined to an office, and I often take my laptop to random locations around the city to work remotely. I enjoy being able to change my working environment on a daily basis, although I must confess I do have some favourite go-to… Continue reading Summer menu tasting @ Marmalade

Sunny city centre dining @ Cafe Rouge, Bull Ring

I will usually choose an indepedent restaurant or cafe over a chain but last week, after attending an emotion minute silence in town due to the horrible events in Manchester, I found myself looking for something quick and easy in the sunshine that wouldn't wreck the vaguely good work I'd done in the gym.  It… Continue reading Sunny city centre dining @ Cafe Rouge, Bull Ring

Pan fried trout with roasted asparagus and minted broad beans  

*moors up in Gas Street basin in makeshift arc*  Grim out isn't it! You wouldn't know if you looked outside (any) window in Birmingham today, but it is actually spring. Yes, it's magical isn't it... *ahem*  Despite the depressing grey skies and relentless rain, looking back through my recent blogs I've been reminded of a… Continue reading Pan fried trout with roasted asparagus and minted broad beans
