Disappointing menu changes @ Bodega


Ramblings, restaurants, Review

Bodega has changed its menu, and I’m not a fan. Yup, you heard me. My love affair with Bodega has come to an end. A crashing, disappointing end. As anyone who regularly reads this blog will know, I’ve been a long standing fan of this Bitters n Twisted venue. I’ve championed it and defended it […]

Spicy surprises @ Indian Brewery, Snow Hill


restaurants, Review

I can’t remember how long I’ve actually been waiting to try the food at Indian Brewery, but suffice to say it’s been a ruddy long time. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to (Indian Brewery has already gained a solid reputation for its tasty grub) but everyone’s banged on about it so much I was […]

Relaxed lunches @ Boston Tea Party in Edgbaston


Cafes, Review

I first visited Boston Tea Party in Edgbaston back in July, on a not-very-warm-at-all summer’s day. I was impressed by the high ceilings and changing aesthetics as you moved from room to room; the food wasn’t bad either. Fast forward 7 months and I found myself back at Boston Tea Party in Edgbaston (on the whispers of some […]

Tapas with a warm welcome @ Amantia


restaurants, Review

The last time I visited Amantia it was the launch night. It rained so heavily that by the time I got to Bennetts Hill from Digbeth I half expected Pennywise to greet me with a red balloon. Alas it was PJ from Big Brother holding a bowl of paella, but same difference. The venue Making […]

A weekend in Krakow, Poland


BYB Travels

Being honest, I don’t really post much about the world outside of Birmingham (this blog is called Bite Your Brum after all) but I’ve just had such a mega weekend in Krakow that I wanted to share a bit about the foodie side of the trip. Being that so many of you gave me must […]

Thai food @ Sabai Sabai, City Centre


restaurants, Review

I have a longstanding love affair with Asian cuisine and more specifically Thai food; this stems from my university days in Leicester. I had naff all money to my name at 19 – largely due to a fondness for snakebite and Lambert & Butler – but whatever I could rustle up from my part time […]

Coffee and crepes @ Madeleine


Cafes, Review

Last week, after a fairly eventful online transaction with Jessops, I finally got my hands on my new camera. On the advice of some friends I bought a Sony A5000 with the view that I could finally take some decent photos, most notably of edible things. Having set up my new piece of tech I […]

A very special lunch @ The Wilderness


restaurants, Review

Last month I was lucky enough to be able to dine at The Wilderness. Having booked our visit all the way back in October, it’s a restaurant I’ve been eager to visit for a very long time. Promising a unique lunch full of surprises, I was practically skipping to the much-hyped restaurant with my husband. […]

Recipe: Spinach Tarka Dhal


Recipe

I haven’t shared any home cooking for a while, mainly because I’ve been out more than the cat over the last few months. I’ve been eating and drinking out pretty much constantly since we got married in October, but now it’s January (and my clothes no longer fit me) I thought I’d make an effort […]
