Eating out in… Birmingham

Food blogger Laura Creaven fulltothebrum.co.uk shares her favourite spots.  

 

Brunch with friends

Sundays are for sleeping but brunch is guaranteed to lure me out of bed, and Gas Street Social does a brilliant range of dishes – from the virtuous to the full works. The bottomless bellini (£15) is a great way to celebrate.

Battle of the burgers

Arguably the two best burgers in Birmingham are found in Digbeth: The Original Patty Men restaurant in Shaw's Passage (above) and the Meat Shack stall, which pops up at street food extravaganza Digbeth Dining Club.

A real treat

I've tried a lot of afternoon tea places in Birmingham but my favourite is
at The Edgbaston. Make treat time extra special with a cocktail – I like the zesty, gin-based Clover Club 3000 (£12).

Food with a view

With some of the best views in the city, Rofuto is a Japanese restaurant that does more than just sushi. Their black cod (£24, above) positively melts in the mouth. Request a table by the window and watch the city come alive.
