GO Different in Birmingham

Alternative Eateries in Birmingham

There’s plenty of choice when it comes to cuisine in Birmingham, but there’s also a great selection of alternative and unusual restaurants that you might not expect to find hidden in and around this area.

Bushwackers [map], The Exchange Building, Edmund Street, serves a range of tasty Australian dishes and there’s a real party atmosphere about this place. So if you’re in a group of friends and want to try some light bites or bar snacks from down under, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Bushwackers.

Bring the Caribbean sunshine into your life and book a table at Klassic Kuisine [map], Waterloo Road, Smethwick. With a bright and colourful décor and plenty of reggae music to get you in the mood you’ll soon be kicking back and enjoy a tasty meal in a warm and lively atmosphere.

Another great Caribbean restaurant can be found at The XE Xaymaca Experience [map], Bristol Street, Horsefair. This small intimate place has a really vibrant ambience that’s sure to bring a smile to your face.
With large portions the order of the day XE Xaymaca is great for those trying to save a few pennies and there’s a brimming vegetarian menu too. The wine list is extensive and most people can’t resist trying one of the many mind-blowing Jamaican rums from behind the bar.

If you fancy a taste of the Aegean there’s plenty of great Greek restaurants in the area. One particular favourite is Antonios [map], Three Shires Oak Road, Bearwood. This restaurant has a real buzz about it and is always pretty busy, which adds to the atmosphere.

With Cypriot food a speciality there’s also lots of Greek and Italian fayre to sample. A comprehensive starter list makes way for a large main menu including Klefitico (lamb shank served with roast potatoes, rice and mixed vegetables), penne pasta with ham and cheese, and veal a la crème. There’s also plenty for vegetarians and if you don’t find anything you fancy ask the friendly staff who’ll be able to rustle you something up to meet your requirements.

When you think of a tasty cuisine perhaps Portuguese isn’t the first kind that springs to mind but one place in Birmingham is on a mission to change all that.

Nando’s Birmingham [map], Unit 5a, Five Ways Leisure, Bishopsgate Street, is a bar and restaurant that is something of a local hidden treasure. Self service is the order of the day so order from the bar and take your wooden cockerel to a designated table. The extensive menu includes Mediterranean chicken salad, corn and spicy rice, feta, olive and ham salad, and a range of veggie dishes. Remember to ask for Nando’s famous Peri Peri sauce when ordering and you won’t be disappointed.
