Bargain lunch – The Indian Streatery, Birmingham city centre
This place I discovered recently after a friend of mine who is on her year abroad came to visit however I can with confidence that it will now be a regular whenever I venture into town! This family ran hole in the wall started out as a food truck around the city centre then found a permanent spot at Digbeth Dining Club before upgrading to their brand-new eatery near the Bullring. Although their evening menu is amazing, I love this place for their ‘Grab and Go’ lunch boxes (despite the name, you are still able to eat inside the café). The lunch menu consist of 6 amazingly put together unusual dishes such as the most popular, ‘Pakora Chaat’ which consist of fried onions and spinach on a bed of marinated chickpea curry, topped with coriander, red onion, pomegranate, homemade chutney and yogurt (the dish is made vegan if the yogurt is removed). This place is not something that can be missed next time you’re heading into town!
Top pick – Deconstructed Samosa Chaat (£4.49) with ginger tea £2.10)
