On a busy Saturday lunch time at a womens networking event in Birmingham centre we ran out for lunch with just under an hour to find something to eat. We discovered Forty Twenty Three, a new Mediterranean cafe whilst trying to avoid a last minute sandwich grab from Tescos…. Phew we did it!
Based in Stephenson Street in Birmingham. The restaurant is small but perfect. There are a few places to sit and it isn’t designed for big numbers of diners. But that was good as we where only a table of 3 and got seated straight away by the window.
The menu is also small, but perfectly formed. You can choose from koftas, mezes, pitta wraps & perek pastry wraps, salads and home made specials and these can all be served to take-away or eat in. The menu might not have a huge selection, but is done right and cooked fresh with amazing flavor.
The menu is an enticing selection of Mediterranean classics. I went for a chicken wrap and a side of hand cut chips. The chicken was beautifully cooked and well seasoned, and accompanied by salad and yoghurt dressing. Simple food, expertly done, for days after I couldn’t stop thinking about about this delicious wrap. Dreamy.
There branding is simple, there menu is simple and there decor is simple with pretty little touches. It’s all about selling good food and that’s what comes first at Forty Twenty Three.
Gosh, I loved this place and am sure everything is made with love and passion. Best things always come in small packages… Go visit!
