October in Food

Photos taken on my phone during October.

I do need a new phone!

Tortilla

Quick lunch at this Mexican fast food joint- I went for two chicken and one veggie taco. It was splendid but I found the ordering system rather stressful.


Tea and cake at York's

It's unusual that a month goes by when I don't go to York's for breakfast, lunch or for tea and cake. I do like that they always do something a little unexpected. This fig tart was beautiful and so enjoyable with chai tea.


Yumzee

I wrote about my previous Yumzee experience before and October found me at a Carribbean BBQ event held in the foyer of a Flotation Spa. I'd recommend checking out the Yumzee website as there are lots of wonderful food events on there.


The High Field 

It's a firm favourite of mine and last month I headed back to The High Field for dinner with friends. I had these lovely scallops to start.


Pierre Victoire Oxford

I had a lovely mini break to Oxford during half term. During the break I ate at a delightful French bistro, the type you just don't see very often. Tasty, comforting food, a lovely atmosphere, plenty of wine and reasonable prices.

I ate from the prix fixe menu; three courses for £25. Light and tasty Gradvalax to start, followed by pan fried plaice with potatoes in a butter sauce and Iles Flotante for pudding. Ills Flotante of course being Floating Islands- soft meringue in Creme Anglais.




Koto, Oxford

Also in Oxford, a small Japanese restaurant. Edd and I drank Japanese spirits and shared some delicious sushi, edamame beans, katsu prawns and pleasantly-named Octopus balls. A delicious meal, a great atmosphere; I wish I could transport it to Birmingham!



Byron Burger

I went out for dinner and cocktails with my good friend Sophie last week. We tried Byron as it's new and I've heard good things about it. I plan to return and do a proper review but this was a good preview. I had the chicken burger with buffalo sauce- pleasant enough but I could barely taste the buffalo. Great cheesy chips though. I think I will try a beef burger next time.



Cooking

Yes I do cook! Two wonderful dishes here from Simply Cook recipes- a light chicken curry made with Greek yoghurt and lamb with salad and potato wedges.



Deliveroo

And sometimes you just want to stay in but don't want to cook and you order a burger and spicy slaw. Use my link to get money off your first order. http://deliveroo.evyy.net/c/328940/231100/3968
