Thai dining @ Sabai Sabai, City Centre

I have a longstanding love affair with Asian cuisine and more specifically Thai food; this stems from my university days in Leicester. I had naff all money to my name at 19 - largely due to a fondness for snakebite and Lambert & Butler - but whatever I could rustle up from my part time… Continue reading Thai dining @ Sabai Sabai, City Centre

Tapas with a warm welcome @ Amantia

The last time I visited Amantia it was their launch night. It rained so heavily that by the time I got to Bennetts Hill from Digbeth I half expected Pennywise to greet me with a red balloon.

A very special lunch @ The Wilderness

Last month I was lucky enough to be able to dine at The Wilderness. Having booked our visit all the way back in October, it's a restaurant I've been eager to visit for a very long time. Promising a unique lunch full of surprises, I was practically skipping to the much-hyped restaurant with my husband.… Continue reading A very special lunch @ The Wilderness
