24 Carat Bistro and Deli Bar, Warstone Lane, Hockley is a bistro hidden down an alley in the centre of the jewellery corner. It serves Caribbean and English food. They offer mixed platters as well as jerk chicken and goat curry. Beautiful presentation aside, the food was packed with flavour without being overpowering.
Adam’s in the city centre is small and cosy with very friendly service. Also, the staff know about the food when you ask questions – something which you don’t find in every restaurant. The nine-course tasting menu is available in the evening, as is the thirteen-course menu. They also offer many unusual touches, including the venison tartare.
The Warehouse Café offers delicious vegetarian food. This place is a bit of a hidden gem, located in Digbeth. The staff are very warm and welcoming; the service is first-class. The food is absolutely amazing and is a total must for any vegan or vegetarian who finds most restaurants too limiting in the choice of what they can eat.
Restaurant VMF is a great place any time of the week but especially for Sunday lunch. The drinks were all reasonably priced. The views over the football pitches add a great dimension to it. This is, after all, the home ground to Aston Villa, and as such a place of great importance in the Birmingham area, whomever you support!
But if you’re going straight for dessert, you might want to visit Cadbury World.
