Adam’s Restaurant, Birmingham

As a good little primary school teacher, committed to keeping abreast with the latest developments in my field, every year around this time I make the journey down to Birmingham to visit the Education Show at the NEC.

Dedicated as I am, I always make sure I’ve seen everything by lunchtime so I can head into town for some sustenance. Last year I ate at Min Min Noodle Bar and the Michelin starred Simpsons.

This year, Adam’s Restaurant was the top of my list.

Achieving a Michelin star within a few months of opening, Adam’s is unbelievably a “pop up” with only a two year lease. (There are plans afoot to move to as larger premises in Birmingham once the lease expires.)

I opted for the 9 course tasting menu, which came with a series of canapés. Each dish was well conceived and executed faultlessly. My favourite dishes were the Spelt and the Veal. Service was exemplary.

Beetroot & goat cheese meringue

Steak tartare with miniature ‘egg yolks’

Liquid roast chicken with sage & onion stuffing


Razor clam, garlic, jersey royal new potatoes

Wood pigeon, golden beetroot, watercress, white onion ash

Skate wing, dashi, cucumber, pumpkin seeds, saffron tapioca, roasted prawn powder

Spelt, chanterelles, trotter, chantenay carrots, egg yolk puree  

Red mullet, bouillabaisse, asparagus

Veal, ‘pot au feu’, cheese on toast, Périgord truffle

Carrot, candied walnut, soy sauce

Apple, toffee, cinnamon, vanilla

Blueberries, goat curd, sorrel, oats
