Street Food in Posh Style at Fazenda Birmingham

July 9, 2019

Hold your thoughts! Street Food in a Posh style isn’t it dining normally? No, not at all. I went to one of my favourite family places, Fazenda in Birmingham to try out their Bar Food Menu, and I just had the most throwback of being in South America, in the middle of the “mercadito” with my family. Fazenda created a menu called Bar Food with a kind of Tapas, great to have a bite either for lunch or evening while…

Rodizio in the Fazenda in Birmingham

November 23, 2018

What a great treat for this cold November, then to have a good Rodizio with warm food, good wine and an excellent company! For those that don’t know, a Rodizio is originally from Brazil and Argentina, with BBQ meats that are brought to your table and cut onto your plate directly. You can choose if you want well done or not, and the buffets are always a good choice for side dishes, but you CANNOT have Rodizio without white rice,…

Family Meals at Tom’s Kitchen Restaurant

September 14, 2018

Family Meals are important to us. Either at home or in a restaurant, our little family deserves a good meal, in a quiet place to talk about everything. We went to Tom’s Kitchen at the Mailbox, in the heart of Birmingham, for a real meal in a good ambience for families. Situated in a cosy space, there is a fusion of “Home” Kitchen with a restaurant, divided into spaces with different decor but all with a homely feeling. We went there at the…
