Seriously, how good do those cakes and macaroons look?
Happy Friday! This evening I have a new foodie post for you, as part of my Birmingham Student Eats series, which has been going down very well so thank you!
Yesterday I had a much-needed, lunchtime catch up with some friends at a new cafe in Selly Oak, the student hub of Birmingham.
Cafe Fifty5 is a Pan-Asian cafe which not only serves delicious main courses and sides, but also shows off some gorgeous treats which I will definitely be going back again soon to try!
To start off with, the interior to this place is wonderful, I absolutely love it. Especially this elephant print on the wall which I was very happy to sit next to!
Food-wise, I started off with the sesame prawn toast, which was so tasty, not greasy at all and served in an adorable little basket…
Now, as the terrible blogger that I am, I forgot to take a photo of my main course (sorry!!). But I can tell you that I had the honey lemon chicken and enjoyed it immensely, this will definitely sound odd but it smelt like a lemony dessert and tasted a little like perfection – I was in food heaven for a while.
Cafe Fifty5 is well-priced, well located and perfect for any student wanting a good lunch or dinner, I know I’ll be returning soon for sure!
