Foodie bits and bobs I didn't blog about in April!
Quarter Horse Coffee
Officially my new favourite coffee shop in Birmingham. The coffee is rich but not too bitter, the parma ham and caeser dressing panini is a treat and the cakes are incredible. Plus they roast the beans in the shop!
It's slightly outside of the main city centre of Birmingham, on Bristol St. Definitely worth the walk though.
A cafe bar on John Bright St, Cherry Reds is becoming a Birmingham institution. I love their breakfast and the new Sunday Brunch menu is fabulous, with treats like Eggy Bread, Bacon and Maple Syrup.
I visited this fantastic Korean restaurant with some Yelpers. I've tried making Bibimbap at home but this was the first time I had it in a restaurant. It's a bowl of marinaded meat, pickled veg and sticky rice. It was delicious! The raw egg on top mixed in to make this a surprisingly comforting dish. I'll definitely be back.
Edd got me a GOLDEN EGG. It actually was golden and was filled with delicious truffles.
My friends and I spent a glorious afternoon in the sun eating burgers from Flying Cows, drinking cider on a bus and filling up on cake.
I do love to cook and find it helps to wind down after work. I don't really make my own recipes- I use cookery books, pinterest and recipe boxes like Simply Cook and Hello Fresh. Or sometimes I just bung together whatever I've got in the fridge, not sure that counts as a recipe!
Salmon cooked in foil with lemon, basil and olive oil
Chicken wings with mojo sauce and sweet potato chips.
I headed back to The Botanist to use the 50% off opening offer. I went for chicken wings with BBQ sauce to start, followed by a fantastic Malaysian Chicken Curry.

Bun and Bowl
Edd and I visited Bun and Bowl in The Cube, Birmingham for a quick dinner. I went for The Cube burger which was filled with bacon and oozy cheese. The fries were seriously tasty!
Gas St Social
Another Yelp visit! We shared cocktails and some 'social' or sharer plates including salmon smoked in jars, ox cheek and chicken vol-au-vents! Gas St Social is at The Mailbox, Birmingham

The Karczma isn't sophisticated but it sure is satisfying.
