Tattu

If you’re looking for a contemporary Chinese restaurant in the centre of Birmingham, this is a great place to check out. I first visited Tattu in Manchester and I loved the instagrammable décor, and when I heard Tattu was coming to Birmingham, I was so excited.

The menu at Tattu is relatively complex if you haven’t been before as it has Dim Sum, small plates, large plates and various sorts of set menus, however the staff do their best to explain everything. I’d say it’s an Asian style tapas – but the small plates are quite filling. I prefer the mains than the starters, only because I find the starters a little too oily for my liking. We went for the steak as a large plate and prawns – OMG both plates were delicious!

If you’re just looking to go out for some drinks, there cocktails are amazing. If you like your drinks sweet, I’d suggest the popular skull candy cocktail. It actually comes in a skull glass and tastes like candy floss!

The Ivy Temple Row

I’ve been to the Ivy a couple of times now, so you know i’m only going to say great things otherwise I wouldn’t keep going back. Let’s just say, the decor at The Ivy is beautiful, especially for people like me who crave OTT decor and endless colour. It is romantic and classic, so whether you’re on a date or with a group of friends, this is the place to go check out. The atmosphere is great, the cocktails are even better and the food is delicious! Would definitely recommend the asparagus for starters, for mains I’ve tried the steak and the blackened cod and both were lovely. For dessert, chocolate bombe all the way!

Pulperia

Pulperia only opened recently and I was pleasantly surprised. The interior is amazing. I started off with some cocktails, which were nice but strong. For mains I went for ‘the worlds best steak’ – it was flavoursome, and cooked to perfection but I wasn’t too sure about the sauce that came with it. They had my favourite dessert – chocolate fondant, which was perfect. Overall, I enjoyed my experience and would definitely go back again.
