Indico Indian Street Food, Birmingham

There’s no denying that Indian cuisine might be one of my favourites, especially Indian street food. So when I was invited to the VIP launch of new Indian Street Food restaurant, Indico, based in Shirley Birmingham, I couldn’t wait to go along.

Walking in you’re met with brightly coloured interior, I honestly felt transported to India rather than being in Birmingham! Amazing mural paintings adorn the walls, as well as brightly coloured umbrellas hanging from the ceiling.

A 360 Feast at Carluccio’s

Carluccios Birmingham

Last week I was invited to head to the recently refurbished Carluccio’s in Brindley Place, Birmingham, to try their new menu and a 360 experience.

Curious to see what the 360 experience was, and to try the menu I headed down with Chris to find out more. Now, I don’t know why, but I’ve never actually eaten at Carluccio’s before so I can’t compare the new menu with their old, or comment on whether the refurb is good.

Going in blind, we were warmly greeted by the staff, honestly they are so nice and would literally do anything for you, constantly asking us if we wanted more drinks and if the food was okay. We were meant to be on No Drink November, but once we were offered a Lemon Spritz (Limoncello, Prosecco & Soda) it was suddenly forgotten. You can’t turn down free alcohol, right?

Lobby on Hill Street, Birmingham

Lobby on Hill Street

Tucked away on the lower ground floor of Hill Street’s Holiday Inn Hotel lies a new bar and eatery – Lobby on Hill Street. I was invited down to take a look around the new venue and try some of the food and drinks on offer a few weeks ago.

The venue itself is very nice, and quite a surprise, Hill Street isn’t exactly famous for bars and restaurants so it’s in a good location if you find yourself staying nearby and needing to grab a quick bite to eat.
