Digbeth Dining Club Review | FOOD

9 Apr 2018

Birmingham's food scene is one that I've been excited about for some time, with investments to the local area and other business ventures hitting the centre, it's becoming a hub for great eats and fun food events.  Digbeth Dining Club is one such event, hosting a menagerie of street food vans under one roof and teaming it with live music and a string light lit hub.  I've been watching posts on instagram from fellow bloggers with mouth watering envy, and this week we took the plunge and jumped in the car to Digbeth to get our chomp on.

When we went (Friday 6th April 2018) there were some of my favourites available - Canoodle, Patty Freaks and Urban Cheesecake - so we decided to share our dishes so we could have more variety without the massive cost and gut busting portions to eat.  Most dishes were around £7-8 but were a great size, I was expecting a smaller dish at an inflated cost but actually we spent far less than we anticipated as we shared three dishes between us.  
We started with a Korean Chicken with a sesame salad from Canoodle, which was hands down my favourite of the night.  Moist chicken cooked to perfection in a crispy coat, the right amount of hot sauce and a glug of sesame oil.  We then moved onto a chicken tikka burrito from Paneer wrap (£7.50) which was tasty enough, but a little dry and slightly overpriced in my opinion, before moving onto our final dish of the night - a 'Lil Freak' burger from Burger freaks, £6.50 and juicy!

We got there around 7PM and stayed for 2 hours, paying £1 each on the door for entry, and it was a really lovely date night!  I love the street food scene and think this would be a fantastic night out with friends, the atmosphere is really welcoming and I even spied a few families there enjoying the live music with their kids on the dance floor.  If you're not into crowds then head there before 8PM as it does get very lively!  

The custard factory and Digbeth area is very cool anyway, rivalling some hipster areas in London, so if you're into your food and want to be part of the cool crowd then this is one not to be missed!

Where: Unit 2 Lower Trinity Street, Digbeth, B9 4AG
How Much: Estimate at £15-20 each for two dishes and a drink
When: All Summer long!
