Friday night supper @ Tom’s Kitchen

Like most food bloggers I have an increasingly long list of restaurants, cafes and bars I'd like to visit. My list has never had less than 20 places (in Birmingham alone) on it at one time because for every one I manage to try I find a new one to add. One of the longstanding… Continue reading Friday night supper @ Tom’s Kitchen

Elegant pub grub @ The White Swan, Edgbaston

I must confess I don't visit Edgbaston half as much as I should, a realisation I had confirmed during a recent visit to The White Swan, set just off Harborne Road. An upmarket pub that's brimming with character, The White Swan manages to be both stylish and homely, thanks in part to the extensive refurbishment… Continue reading Elegant pub grub @ The White Swan, Edgbaston

Sunday lunch @ Chez Mal, Malmaison 

I have a well documented love affair with Malmaison, and having discovered my foodie friend Fay (try saying that with your mouthful) hadn’t tried the delectable Sunday Brunch the place is so hyped for I immediately booked us a table.

With the… Continue reading Fine dining Indian style @ Lasan

Chilled tapas and great wine @ Pinchos

The winding streets of Barcelona are a joy for food lovers, with rustic cafes and bars offering Spanish snacks nestled in every nook and cranny. I truly love that city, having been many times both as a solo traveller and with friends. Most recently I shared a new Barca adventure with my wonderful mum, Deborah,… Continue reading Chilled tapas and great wine @ Pinchos

Sunday dinner @ The Dark Horse, Moseley 

Okay, so it’s fair to say over the years I have been quite the creature of habit when it comes to roast dinners. I’ll tell anyone that will listen about the massive Sunday dinners available for under £9 at The Sun on the Hill (honestly they are excellent, go have one) but recently I discovered… Continue reading Sunday dinner @ The Dark Horse, Moseley

Italian dining @ Cucina Rustica

Leafy and picturesque, St Paul’s Square is slowly but surely becoming one of my favourite spots in the city. Nestled below the bustling streets of the Jewellery Quarter, this small but vibrant part of Birmingham becomes a hive of activity come the weekend; largely thanks to the array of independent bars and restaurants scattered around… Continue reading Italian dining @ Cucina Rustica
