Brum Eats: Warehouse Cafe Tapas Tasting Evening

One of our favourite restaurants in Birmingham is the very brilliant Warehouse Cafe. Despite neither Mr B nor I being vegetarian at the moment, we have both had long stints of vegetarianism in our past so we are probably slightly more open minded than the average omnivore. So, yes, one of our favourite restaurants is a vegetarian restaurant, and I simply adore it.

Warehouse have recently floated the idea of adding tapas style plates to the menu and last night they hosted a tasting evening to show a few of their new dishes off. Everything was divine, from the amuse bouche to the dessert, the dishes were inventive, playful and delicious, and boasted leaves and courgette flowers handpicked from local allotments that very morning.

Summer at the Allotment was pretty much summer in your mouth. Beautiful salad vegetables picked that morning, including wonderfully fresh podded peas, topped off with a tempura battered courgette flower stuffed with cream cheese, lime and garlic.

Sourdough and Smoke tasted incredible. A wonderful toasted sourdough with beautiful homemade baba ganoush and pomegranate seeds that gave an interesting texture to the whole combination.  

#makeyourown Chop Salad was brilliant fun: freshly picked leaves from the allotment topped with whatever you like from the selection, including asparagus flowers, borage (a vibrant blue flower) and liquorish-tastic fennel pollen.

Cherry and Olive. I simply do not have enough superlatives to express how much I loved this salad. The combination of cherry, olive, incredible goats cheese curd from Brock Hall Farm and crunchy perfectly oiled toast is one of the best flavour combinations and texture sensations I have ever had so far.

There was also an amuse bouche, two more savoury courses and some surprise desserts which were equally delicious!

If you ever get chance, I strongly encourage everybody to take a trip to Warehouse Cafe. Your tummy and tastebuds will be delighted.
