En Place

Birmingham's food scene appears to be going from strength to strength, with more street food and unique events taking popping up all over the city. One of those unique events was the second En Place pop-up at 6/8 Kafe at Millennium Point.

My Food Place of the Week - Cafe Soya

I love meeting up with friends, I just don't get to do it as often as I would like. But when I do, I also take the opportunity to try somewhere new and on this occasion, it was all about Cafe Soya. I have never visited before but has heard only good things from the vegan Brummies I follow on Instagram and certain family members. So black dress in tow and camera at the ready, off I went to conquer.

My Food Place of the Week - Mission Burrito

I was off on one of my lunchtime adventures and thought I would give Mission Burrito a chance, as I liked it's predecessor, Chilacas.

My Food Place of the Week - La Tasca Barclaycard Arena

The last time I visited La Tasca was over 5 years ago, at the branch just off Broad St. The food was in small portions and I was still hungry, after paying 40 pounds for 2 of us and this was before my lactose intolerance got bad. So when I got invited to try out the new menu, I was a little intrigued but had low expectations, as I haven't tried tapas since then.

My Food Place of the Week - Revolution Bar Birmingham

I remember going to Vodka Revolution when I first moved back from university, it was slightly tacky, the clientele was mostly students and it didn't have the best reputation, especially not for food. Cut to four years later, Vodka Revolution has changed to Revolution and the whole franchise has had a whole style makeover and it isn't a bad one at that.

Have You Heard?

The Vegan Grindhouse will have a permanent residency, starting on Monday 10th August, at The Mockingbird at The Custard Factory. If you read the blog regurly then you know that I love TVG, so I jumped for joy when I heard this news. 

The brunch menu will be served from 11am - 2pm and the dinner menu will be from 5pm - 9pm.

As shown in the image above, TVG will be serving vegan americana classics on the set menu, whereas the dinner menu will change every week.

This will be part of Meat-Free Mondays at The Mockingbird and may even lead to The Vegan Grindhouse eventually have their own resistance. It would be great to be able to eat out somewhere for brunch, where I can have waffles, WAFFLES people! Yes I am excited and look forward to try this, now I need to think of what should my excuse should be to take the 10th off work, kidding obviously.

Brum Yum Yum Goes Veggie

Street food markets have become super popular in Birmingham but sometimes it can be hard for this dairy-free halal meat veggie-loving chick to find something to eat, so I rejoiced at the thought of a street food market that was solely veggie/vegan. It took place on the 19th July at The Kings Heath Village Square, with vendors The Vegan Grindhouse, Pietanic, Bare Bones Pizza, Bombay Tapas, 9 Tea Cups, Mex It Up and Vegetropolis in attendance there.

TimeOut Birmingham

You may have seen that I was AWOL from the blog a couple months ago, well I wasn't just sitting on my ass, eating hummus, oh no my friend, I was writing elsewhere (sorry for cheating).
