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

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

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.

Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

July saw the launch of a summer menu at Cosy Club so I went along to sample some of the new dishes available alongside a few cocktails.

It manages to feel like a vintage boutique-esq… Continue reading Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

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.

Spicy celebrations @ Pushkar

I love Pushkar's on Broad Street. The food and service are always outstanding, and despite being in a part of Brum that many of us choose to avoid (Saturday nights on Broad St are pretty grim unless you're single and 18, let's be honest) the restaurant looks and feels quite fancy.  Ian and I first… Continue reading Spicy celebrations @ Pushkar
