OOTY Station in Selfridges Birmingham

Whenever I venture to Selfridges, I normally head over to Pret or Yo Sushi. It's been a shame that for a while the options have been quite basic. So, it's good to see that they have added a South Indian option recently of the name OOTY Station. They have taken over Rola Wala's old spot.

Franco Manca

This year has seen my love of pizza have a resurgence. For the longest time, I was scared of the after efforts. Of the bloating, stomach pain and swelling. Sounds amazing, right? But after a trip to Bath last year, I discovered I can have pizza without feeling like crap afterwards. I tried out Franco Manca whilst I was there and found their sourdough base didn't make me ill.

Caffe Botanico | Sutton Coldfield

Once upon a time I used to work in Sutton Coldfield. This was years ago, before I was vegan but had just become dairy-free because of lactose intolerance. It was really hard at that time to find good dairy-free or vegan options. I worked in the area for three years and found that Quinto Lounge was the only place I could go to for lunch. Times have definitely changed. As Caffe Botanico now exists in House of Fraser in Sutton Coldfield. I was invited to go and try out the vegan options at this cafe and relay my experience to you guys. So here goes....

Hookway's Vegan Options

Lunchtimes became a lot more pleasurable after I discovered Hookway's in The Minories, round the corner from Wayland's Yard and 10 minute walk away from Boston Tea Party in Birmingham City Centre. I discovered this place about a year ago when I worked on Birmingham's Colmore Row. Back then they had the buffet, where two out of the three counters had vegan options. That is still the case but they had also added a menu of options that can be freshly made

The New Vegan Menu 2019 at The Stable

The many faces of Tofu Tasha can be seen above. Thankfully I've missed out the few where I am scoffing my face. As you don't wanna see that and I'm not the Asian wedding photographer to do that to myself. Anyways, the images above show me in The Stable in Birmingham, enjoying some of their new vegan menu. You guys already know how much I love this place, as I have shown the love right here and on Instagram, So you know I jumped at the chance to try out the menu when I was invited.

The Future is Vegan Menu at Kisama, Nocturnal Animals

Hi all, Tofu Tasha here! Formally Nutella Tasha. Hope you're liking the name change. I'm having trouble diverting my old domain to this one via GoDaddy and Blogger, so if you can help let me know ASAP. Anyways, it's been a while since I've done a review but here I am, back with this very special review of Nocturnal Animals. Located on Bennetts Hill, the second venture from Alex Claridge is described as being 'playful and provocative' and I can see why. Being invited to try out the nine courses of vegan food in the downstairs venture Kisama was a dream come true. I'm not a fan of michelin star food, as it's normally pretentious little portions but I was intrigued by this place and they didn't disappoint.

Chung Ying Central: New Vegan Options

I love dim sum, I think it's tiny morsels of tasty treats that are fun to eat. This is why I was so happy to hear that Chung Ying Central had launched a new menu on the 18th January and had put a number of new vegan options onto that menu. I was even happier to be invited to try out those options and give a little feedback on the items that I tried. Read on to see that feedback. I previously reviewed CYC in 2017 and 2014
