REVIEW: FAT HIPPO BIRMINGHAM

ANOTHER ONE… I keep seeing burger places popping up all over the Midlands – Hanbao, Burgerboi, Burger and Sauce – the list goes on. Since the pandemic we have become even more obsessed with skyscraper burgers that require a chainsaw to get through. Fat Hippo at first look on Instagram seemed to be another joint…

REVIEW: ALIOLI SOLIHULL

Where the f*** are all the tapas restaurants?  Traditional Spanish tapas is one of my favourite cuisines. Previously my go-to was Don Diego in Sutton Coldfield but that sadly closed before the Pandemic. I enjoyed many nights in there swinging back sangria and chomping on Don’s meatballs. Before you start to think you have clicked…

REVIEW: KILO ZIRO CAFE BAR AFTERNOON TEA

If there is something that Birmingham is in short supply of, it’s quality afternoon teas. We sadly lost our champion “The Edgbaston Hotel” this year and there are not many I can recommend other than Hotel Du Vin and Qavali. My biggest pet hate with afternoon teas is that many businesses think it’s more important…

REVIEW: THE COCONUT TREE BIRMINGHAM

Another day, another new restaurant in Brum. This time it’s Sri Lankan street food chain The Coconut Tree. It boasts a strong fan base with outlets in Cheltenham and Bournemouth and after my visit to their latest restaurant, I can see why… You’ll find the Coconut Tree sitting comfy in a two storey building on…

REVIEW: 670 GRAMS

Pinch my nips. The three words that I said out loud soon as I left 670 Grams. Firstly, because it was so bloody cold out and secondly because I was experiencing a mixture of emotions. Stunned, content, extremely satisfied and angry, anger connects with the Pinch my nips because I was so pissed at myself…
