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. The three course feast at Chez Mal starts with soup and access to the Chef’s… Continue reading Sunday lunch @ Chez Mal, Malmaison

Healthy lunch choices @ Pho, Grand Central

Whilst it's lovely to eat a big juicy burger or a cheese laden pizza (obviously) sometimes I want a nice healthy lunch. This in principle sounds extremely simple, however finding places in Birmingham city centre that offer interesting, tasty and satisfying healthy lunches can actually be a little bit more trickier than you first imagine. … Continue reading Healthy lunch choices @ Pho, Grand Central

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

I've never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I'd not spent much time in that area of the city. In my mind the strip of bars and takeaways is more suited… Continue reading Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

Steak club @ Bar + Block

After a brilliant, but incredibly busy, weekend I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself at the start of last week. Don't get me wrong, most of it was self inflicted (my hen do was epic; I thought I was dying until Wednesday) but I was most definitely in need of a post-weekend pick… Continue reading Steak club @ Bar + Block

A Middle Eastern feast @ Damascena, Temple Row

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. Having very much enjoyed my visit to the flagship cafe in Moseley Village earlier this year, I had high expectations of the… Continue reading A Middle Eastern feast @ Damascena, Temple Row

Wholesome food and an adaptable menu @ The Rustic Cafe 

When you think of the best places for brunch in Birmingham you would be forgiven for not giving the crossroads by Lidl in the Spring Road area of Acocks Green much thought. Hardly known for its chic eateries, the area is largely ignored by foodies - ordinarily for good reason. I know when I usually… Continue reading Wholesome food and an adaptable menu @ The Rustic Cafe

Healthy lunch @ Coffee Tales

I've loved the Jewellery Quarter since my days in marketing when I first left university and moved to this wonderful city. There's quite a vibrant food and drink scene now compared to when I worked in The Big Peg many moons ago, and I've recently decided to make more effort to venture over this side… Continue reading Healthy lunch @ Coffee Tales

The Canal House opening party 

Last week saw the official launch of The Canal House on Bridge Street, and to celebrate a party was held to mark the occasion. Over recent months the former James Brindley pub has been transformed in to The Canal House; a sizeable city centre bar and restaurant overlooking Gas Street Basin. New World Trading Company… Continue reading The Canal House opening party
