Review: Food Attack at The Meat Shack

It’s National Burger Day today, so what better way to celebrate then telling you about my visit to one of Birmingham’s hottest new venues, The Meat Shack at Thorp 17. The Meat Shack are not new to the Birmingham food scene, in fact they’ve been […]

Has it really been a year since the last food festival? Time flies fast in the second city! The Colmore Food Festival is one of the highlights of Wifey and I’s year. Bringing the cream of the Colmore BID‘s bars, restaurants and cafes in a […]

Feeding Time at Foodies Festival

Feeding Time at Foodies Festival

For a change, there was some blue sky present this summer. It was a glorious sunny Sunday and for the third year in a row, Wifey and I escaped the city (just about) and headed to Cannon Hill Park. The main reason for our visit was […]

Texan Tasting – Low ‘n’ Slow @ Bar Opus, a menu inspired by travel

Before you start, no, this isn’t a repeat of my Magnum Meat post (read it here), this is more of a part 2. It’s been just over 6 months since I had the pleasure of visiting one of Low ‘n’ Slow’s takeovers at Bar Opus and […]

Regular readers of the blog would know I’ve visited tasteandliquor‘s Food Feast-ival at The Coffin Works previously (read about it here). Whilst the last glimmers of summer were licking around, I thought it was well worth time for a revisit. Unfortunately,Wifey wasn’t feeling great on […]

A Sunny Sunday at Sarehole – Flying Teapot Food Market

A Sunny Sunday at Sarehole – Flying Teapot Food Market

In my relentless pursuit of getting out of cooking on weekends, my wife and I popped along to Sarehole Mill, a few miles from Birmingham city centre last Sunday. Flying Teapot Events have been running a street food, folk, ale and craft fair every other week since April.

We were out and about for a few visits to family and felt a light repast may help enliven the journey.

Lunchtime Liaison – Hibiscus Grove at Sketts Fine Food Fair, Victoria Square

Rather than purchase the regular meal deal from one of the insidious supermarkets slowly taking over the Colmore Business District, my wife and I popped along Colmore Row to Victoria Square.

It was a glorious day and Sketts had put on one of their fortnightly food fairs which are on every first and third Wednesday of the month.

TASTE & LIQUOR, SOUTHSIDE BIRMINGHAM: An inaugural event for my inaugural post

TASTE & LIQUOR, SOUTHSIDE BIRMINGHAM: An inaugural event for my inaugural post

Taste and Liquor opened today so there was no better way for me to start off this blog than a visit to a brand new foodie event.

After a walk around Jewellery Quarter with my better half and the clock approaching 2.30pm, the tummy was rumbling and it was time for some grub.
