Birthday burritos @ Bodega


restaurants, Review

Bodega fans: I have burrito porn for you. My poor pal Alison gets a right rough deal. Her birthday is the first weekend of January and everyone is either on a diet or on the wagon, but I always turn up (and make twice as much noise as normal) to make sure she knows she’s […]

Vegan fast food @ Fressh


Cafes, Review

A new vegan cafe, Fressh, has popped up next to Tilt and it serves really good fast food. Nope, I didn’t think I’d be saying that anytime soon either, but here we are. Fressh offers plant-based food in the heart of the city centre, and joins the growing list of vegan-friendly venues (such as Natural Healthy […]

Getting festively plump @ Original Patty Men


restaurants, Review

Realising it was just two weeks until Christmas, and struggling to feel remotely festive, the latest Original Patty Men special couldn’t have come at a better time. What better way to get into the spirit than with a burger covered in sprouts, eh? I saw the Everyday I’m Brusselin (£9.50) on the OPM twitter page […]

Filthy good burgers @ The Meat Shack


restaurants, Review

Confession time: I’ve only just lost my The Meat Shack virginity. I know, I know; how is that possible for such a vocal burger monster? Despite being woefully behind the times (soz guys) I finally made it to the latest DDC offering to set up shop, and I can tell you it’s worth the hype – […]

Badass big burgers @ The Old Crown Digbeth


Bars & Pubs, Review

With its big beer garden and tempting sounding burgers it was inevitable I’d end up dining in The Old Crown Digbeth eventually; coincidentally next door to the weekly DDC street food pop up. Birmingham’s oldest inn, The Old Crown dates right back to 1368 (I think dinosaurs were alive then?) and is a beautiful building; […]

American comfort food @ The Smoke Haus


restaurants, Review

Have you visited The Smoke Haus Brindleyplace yet? It’s no secret I love comfort food. From loaded burgers and footlong hotdogs to gooey mac n cheese; I’m all about the stodge. My waistline doesn’t thank me for this love affair, of course, but my stomach is usually quite grateful, and frankly I listen to that […]

Sunday lunch @ The Distillery 


Bars & Pubs, Review

The Distillery is an awesome lunch spot on the canal. I don’t really like living in Tyseley. It’s lacking in entertainment, Deliveroo doesn’t deliver Lebanese food at 10am here, and my next door neighbours are basically a 2017 version of the Nesbitt’s (showing my age there). However, one of the few things I am grateful […]

Posh pub snacks @ The Red Lion


Bars & Pubs, Review

I recently found myself in the big garden of The Red Lion which sits between Jewellery Quarter and Hockley. Despite looking a bit like an ‘old man pub’ in the bar areas inside, the small beer garden at the rear is a nice little sun trap. Not only that but I’d heard whispers that The […]

Friday funday @ Original Patty Men


Ramblings, restaurants, Review

Original Patty Men I love Original Patty Men! One of the best things about (finally) starting a food blog is meeting members of the existing foodie community. At the start of this week I was invited to review a Colmore Row restaurant and was joined by five absolutely lovely ladies, but much to my delight […]
