My Food Place of the Week: The Botanist

The Botanist has been the talk of the town recently, or city, and I was lucky enough to be invited along to a lunch time preview and launch party.

It is located on the left-hand side of the Tesco Metro within Birmingham's City Centre, on Temple St, and you cannot miss it. It has these beautiful looking gates surrounding it and it just catches your eye (scroll down to see what I am talking about).

Wrapchic Bloggers Event

Located in the Bullring, on the upper level in between Debenhams and Gap, is the new flagship Birmingham store of Wrapchic. Wrapchic's concept is to be lunch on-the-go Indian cuisine and it is a Mumbai slang term for 'Sexy', which is pronounced 'Rap-chic' and I see it as a hybrid of Indian and Mexican. The fillings are Indian but they are presented in a typically Mexican way. Everything has an Indian theme, even the coffee.

My Food Place of the Week: Digbeth Dining Club

I love the idea of street food and I particularly enjoy having a variety of cuisines to choose from. So I am quite happy that Birmingham is becoming a hotspot for street food and one of the most noteworthy events is The Digbeth Dining Club.

The Battle of the Dairy-Free Yoghurts!

I am always on the hunt for dairy free options, so when I saw that both Eat and Pret A Manger had great dairy free yoghurts, I had to try both and see which one came up trumps.

My Food Place of the Week: Coast to Coast

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited along to Coast to Coast on Broad St as an VIP diner, I have visited the branch before when it first opened in 2013 and I can't say I was enthused with the experience. I remember having a veggie burger, that it was mediocre, that there were not many choices for me to choose from, due to the fact I can only have halal meat, I wasn't strict about my dairy intake back then, and I haven't been back since. So I went to the restaurant with a brand new set of dietary requirements, I am sure restaurants hate me for this, and an open mind. The restaurant is located on Broad St, it has been several different restaurants before but this one seems to have stuck. I arrived there and it was quite busy, the music was booming, I have to say I loved the soundtrack of American classics, and the atmosphere was live. Seeing all this at 6pm on a Wednesday was filling me with anticipation for the meal.
