This week’s Digbeth Dining Club was another short one for us as our friend couldn’t make it but that never stops us. Although due to a busy day having lunch at three, to arrive at Digbeth at half five didn’t help either. Even though we arrived at Digbeth after it had just opened its gates, we … More Street Souvlaki & Esmies at Digbeth Dining Club 26/6/15
The creators of Woktastic, a noodle and sushi bar based in Paradise Place reopening in the autumn, opened their first branch of their sister chain Yakinori in Selly Oak today. We just had to try Yakinori – which serves authentic Japanese cuisine including noodles, sushi, bento, tempura, teriyaki, ramen, teppanyaki, donburi, chicken katsu and okonomiyaki. … More Yakinori Selly Oak Grand Opening!
This week’s Digbeth Dining Club was an unusual one for us; normally we plan to order at least three or four smaller dishes, trying as many stalls as possible before we explode, however this week was different as we had our heart set out on a new dish from Habaneros… Before we get onto the food … More Digbeth Dining Club – the platter that (nearly) defeated us!
Having planned to visit London for quite a while we couldn’t wait to go. In advance, catching a 7:10 train seemed like an excellent idea (it wasn’t), as did making pancakes at 5am (She have never regretted her choices more than she did that morning) After walking from Euston through the ever so beautiful Hyde Park, … More London Adventure Roundup!
We have both always really enjoyed theatre and seem to constantly be booking tickets for the next musical or play to go on tour to Birmingham. I found out about The Theatre Cafe through their Twitter I thought it’d be an excellent surprise for her. The cafe is owned and run by London Theatre Bookings, who … More The Theatre Cafe!
Whenever our friends from Hong Kong visit London, they always visit Chinatown and come back with recommendations for us to try, so we couldn’t resist exploring while we were nearby! The area was so busy and vibrant, with so many shops that we wanted to explore! The number of bakeries we walked past made resisting … More Mini adventure in Chinatown!
I first went to Food for Thought about six months ago with my mother, who in turn has visited it many times, and I simply fell in love with the charm of this tiny underground vegetarian restaurant. I was determined that one day I’d bring him here and when I learned it was closing the week … More Food For Thought London!
I first went to Hummus Bros several years ago, when I was a bit of a newbie to hummus. I loved it then and considering that chickpeas are now a big part of my diet (I love them way too much), I knew I had to take him when we went to London for the day! As … More Hummus Bros!
This week at Digbeth Dining Club there was one new vendor – Meat Heads – who we’d seen all over twitter but had never got the chance to try, along with Becky’s Bhajis which had been before but we missed out on. We decided to start with a meatball smash from Meat Heads. We opted … More Digbeth Dining Club Food Roundup 12/6/15
