Tapas Revolution launches new cocktail menu!

Tapas Revolution, baby of  Spanish Chef Omar Allibhoy has been open a while now in Birmingham’s Grand Central. We’ve been a couple of times, and always enjoyed decent food and drink.

I was excited to learn that recently, Tapas Revolution has collaborated with the award winning Cocktail Trading Co to create a new cocktail menu of classics with a Spanish twist, so was very happy to pop along for a meal and try a few of these out.

Joining forces, Tapas Revolution and The Cocktail Trading Co have created 6 new cocktails which have been added to the Birmingham menu. The collaboration features classic cocktails with a Spanish touch, using an array of typically Spanish spirits, wines and ingredients including Larios gin, Cava, Pedro Ximénez, Spanish brandy Veterano, blood orange, paprika and chorizo. To me these sounded very intriguing, I always like to try drinks that are just a little bit different to the norm.

The New Lichfield Brewhouse & Kitchen

A couple of weeks ago Brewhouse & Kitchen launched a new venue for their brand – near to us in Lichfield. We’d only recently visited their Sutton Coldfield branch for the first time and enjoyed our time there – Lee being particularly taken with the beer selection, so when we were invited to pop down to Lichfield for lunch, we were happy to.

The venue itself on the corner of bird street is large and spacious, with a variety of bench style seating, upturned barrels and your more standard tables too. I like the casual decor with lots of wood and metal features.  Continue reading

Review: Twisted Burger Company, Sheffield

Way back when we lived in Sheffield we were frequent visitors to the Harley, for drinking and their live music. However I don’t remember them doing food. Well if they did it obviously want very memorable. Fast forward 7 years since we left the city and we were back in the Harley in search of a tasty lunch and had been tipped off about the great things that were being dished out there by the Twisted Burger Co.

Review: Brewhouse and Kitchen Sutton Coldfield

Brewhouse and Kitchen in Sutton Coldfield has been around for a little while now, but is somewhere we have never got round to trying. I first thought it was an independent pub & kitchen, but turns out there’s quite a few of them across the country, mostly in the south. They also all boast an in house microbrewery, which must be a good draw for the beer lovers amongst us.

As well as the pub and restaurant, they run beer masterclasses and brewery experience days too, the former of which we are going to try out at the newly opened Lichfield branch soon, so watch this space for that!

Review: Ego Kenilworth

I always like trying new restaurants, and Ego is a chain that I am relatively new to. There is one relatively close to us in Lichfield that I have been to twice, and enjoyed the food both times, so when we were invited to dine at the Kenilworth venue we thought it was a good excuse for a day out and a trip to look at the Castle too. And while the castle tour was cut short through vile weather, Ego provided a warm welcoming hideout for the rain.
