Getting back from a sunshine break often leads to a case of holiday blues; returning from a dream honeymoon is next level torture. Having spent the past two weeks in nothing less than 25 degree sun surrounded by cocktails and gorgeous food to say I was gutted about getting back to the daily grind was… Continue reading Post holiday pick me up @ Wagamama, New Street
Sometimes you stumble upon a restaurant and it just makes your heart a little happier, don't you think? It's rare but wonderful; you've never heard of a place and then all of a sudden you've been back ten times and tried half the menu. For me, that restaurant seems to be Siamais. I sort of… Continue reading A spicy lunch and Siamais revisited
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. Having been invited by Brum Bloggers to enjoy dinner and a performance of Miss Saigon at The Hippodrome, to say I was excited was an… Continue reading A Taste of Vietnam @ Circle Restaurant, Birmingham Hippodrome
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.

Do you know what's better than free food? Absolute bugger all, that's what. After a pretty naff start to… Continue reading Oodles of noodles @ Chop & Wok
I don't know about you but I'm a big fan of Pho, the Vietnamese-inspired restaurant that opened last year in Grand Central. It's an ideal spot for a quick bite to eat with friends, or as a solo dining experience before or after catching a train at New Street station. Having always been a huge… Continue reading What’s the story, morning glory?
I'm a big fan of Pho based in Grand Central. It's my go to place when I'm in the mood for something tasty but vaguely healthy, and I often take myself off to the Vietnamese 'street food' restaurant for a working lunch. In fact, I like it so much I've taken my boyfriend, my mum,… Continue reading Why I love eating @ Pho
