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

A Taste of Vietnam @ Circle Restaurant, Birmingham Hippodrome 

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

Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

July saw the launch of a summer menu at Cosy Club so I went along to sample some of the new dishes available alongside a few cocktails. For those unfamiliar with this bar come restaurant, it's an eclectic mix of plush furnishing, peculiar paintings, and over the top decor. It manages to feel like a vintage boutique-esq… Continue reading Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden 

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. That… Continue reading Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden

Sunny city centre dining @ Cafe Rouge, Bull Ring

I will usually choose an indepedent restaurant or cafe over a chain but last week, after attending an emotion minute silence in town due to the horrible events in Manchester, I found myself looking for something quick and easy in the sunshine that wouldn't wreck the vaguely good work I'd done in the gym.  It… Continue reading Sunny city centre dining @ Cafe Rouge, Bull Ring

Sunshine and salads @ Fazeley Social

Finally it looks like spring has finally arrived and the week started with a glorious sunny day. I don't know about you but I find a dose of sunshine really takes the Monday blues away, especially when combined with some tasty bites. With my washing drying out on the line before 9am, and my Monday… Continue reading Sunshine and salads @ Fazeley Social

What’s the story, morning glory?

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?
