WINNIE EATS: TOMBO

I recently visited Tombo in London with my friend as we both love Japanese food and she recommended their green tea desserts and since I’m a sucker for all things green tea flavoured, it was a no brainer.  Luckily I had my camera with me but low lighting = noisy pics! Tombo is located just

KILLER FLAT WHITE

There is an awesome independent coffee scene in Birmingham and all the coffee shops are a little network where they all support each other, so it’s lovely little community.

WINNE EATS: ANNEXE

I often write about food on this blog, reviewing places in London but I should really pay more attention to my own city as Birmingham has plenty of great places to eat. The Birmingham food scene has a pretty good reputation. It’s the only UK city outside London, Dublin, Edinburgh and Cardiff to have 4
