July in Food

It's the start of August, which means I'm on my summer holidays. It's been a challenging year and I'm happy it's over. I'm also looking forward to a change in September when I am moving into year five. It means moving rooms and a better timetable (lunch at the reasonable hour of 12.30). Before then I have a month to recuperate.

Tomorrow I am catching the train to Gatwick and boarding a plane to New York. New York has been on my list for a long time and I can't believe I am finally going! Naturally there will be numerous posts about it, coming soon.

For now, July in food. Bits and bobs I took photos of on my phone.

Brunch at Yorks Bakery Cafe

Although I love the new Yorks (near New St Station) I have only just been there for food. Naturally I went for my current brunch favourite of Eggs Royale. Great salmon, not too much hollandaise, loved the extra greenery, shame one of the eggs was over cooked. Nevertheless I'll be heading back for more breakfast options soon. I've got my eye on Arabian buttered eggs or toasted banana bread.


Carters

My third Michelin star experience and Birmingham's newest restaurant to receive a star. We were there with Edd's parents to celebrate Edd's exam success. It was a lovely, tasty meal, which didn't leave me feeling too stuffed! For more details, have a look at my Yelp review.


Bardolino 

As it's the summer I can be a lady what lunches. Last Friday I went to the new Bardolino at the Cube with fellow bloggers Emily of Good Girl Gone Brum and Ting of The Ting Thing.

Bardolino focus on bellinis and pizza and I enjoyed each of these! I loved the toppings on my pizza though I prefer a thinner base. I'll be back for brunch- got to try the Eggs Royale of course.


Pizza Express

My Mum gave me a voucher for here a while ago, so Edd and I went for dinner. I had their new Hawaiian, which features pineapple chutney instead of plain pineapple! It was a great mid-week treat.


Mrs Bridges Tea Rooms

We were in Leicester for a friend's birthday recently and stopped for breakfast at this sweet cafe in the Leicester Lanes. I always love spending time in Leicester as I spent three years there at uni! This was the first time I'd made it to Mrs Bridges Tea Rooms though, where I had French Toast with bacon and maple syrup. An absolute treat.


Not many photos this month because my phone is nearing the end of its life and the camera is getting rubbish.

See you on the flipside kids.

Yay for summer holidays and I hope that your September goes a bit more smoothly for you too. Love the look of your lunch at Bordalino's - that's the kind of lunch I ended up daydreaming about when I hit the mid-morning slump at work. - Tasha
