Fine dining Indian style @ Lasan 

There’s a handful of restaurants in Birmingham that need little introduction, and Lasan most certainly falls into that category.  Launched in 2002 by Jabbar Khan, the Indian restaurant - part of the Lasan Group that includes Fiesta del Asado, Nosh & Quaff and Raja Monkey Cafe - has recently undergone a £500,000 refurbishment. With the… Continue reading Fine dining Indian style @ Lasan

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

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

Electro Brunch @ Gaucho

With my hen do this weekend coming I had every intention of having a 'quiet one' on Saturday, but instead I accepted an invitation to a bloggers event at Gaucho.

Edinburgh Gin dinner @ Moor Hall Hotel & Spa

Cocktails and pampering @ Malmaison 

As you know I get married in just two months, so I've been busy booking my pre-wedding beautification. Being the lazy tomboy I am, I require some serious sprucing prior to getting hitched, so I've got a whole 4 hours of exfoliation, massages, manicures and pedicures (and a fizzy lunch, obviously) planned at Hotel du… Continue reading Cocktails and pampering @ Malmaison

Boston Tea Party opens a new cafe in Edgbaston 

A new cafe has opened in Edgbaston as part of the popular Boston Tea Party chain; the 20th UK opening for the group. I have a well documented love affair with BTP (read my thoughts here) so I was delighted to be invited to the Edgbaston soft launch to try some food and meet the… Continue reading Boston Tea Party opens a new cafe in Edgbaston

Summer menu tasting @ Marmalade

One of the best things about 'working from home' is that I'm not confined to an office, and I often take my laptop to random locations around the city to work remotely. I enjoy being able to change my working environment on a daily basis, although I must confess I do have some favourite go-to… Continue reading Summer menu tasting @ Marmalade
