Having a Family Fiesta at Fiesta del Asado Birmingham

July 18, 2019

We had a nice evening meal, in a very South American way at the Fiesta del Asado in Birmingham, most specific in Solihull.   If you had read our previous “tasting’ of Lasan In Birmingham, Fiesta del Asado is from the same owner, so I had some questions answered and here is what I gathered (huge thank you to Andrew who invited us and answered my questions): The initial inspiration for Fiesta came after Lasan had won Gordon Ramsay’s The…

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…

Oxford Lunch at Cherwell Boathouse

March 8, 2019

Following the Oxford Guide that you can read and print on this Blog article, I just had to share this new experience we had. For those that don’t know what a Punt is: A punt is a flat-bottomed boat with a square-cut bow, designed for use in small rivers or other shallow water. Punting refers to boating in a punt. The punter generally propels the punt by pushing against the river bed with a pole. A punt should not be confused with a gondola, a shallow draft…

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,…
