One of my new favorite lunch spots: Edgar’s Bakery

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on February 12, 2013

When you hear Edgar’s Bakery you probably think of their popular Strawberry or Caramel cake! But I think of how its become one of my new favorite lunch spots. The atmosphere is cozy, prices reasonable, and the sandwiches are delicious; and to make it easier, there are several locations around town for you to visit.

The first time I went there for lunch, I ordered The “T” Bird which consists of Hickory smoked turkey, mozzarella cheese, Applewood-smoked bacon, leaf lettuce & ripe tomatoes on a scratch made and toasted challah bread. And it comes with two sides, all for $6.95 plus tax. My sides were fresh fruit and potato chips. I really enjoyed the fresh sweet taste of the challah bread.

Last week, I ordered the Cranapple Jack which consists of Hickory smoked turkey, Applewood smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, sweet apple butter & leaf lettuce on cranberry walnut bread. It also comes with two sides, all for $7.45 plus tax. This time my sides were pasta salad and fresh fruit. I was in the mood for a toasted sandwich so I asked the cook to toast the cranberry walnut bread and I think it made the sandwich taste even better. This is my favorite sandwich and I want it again, I might even go back this week to get it lol. I would also order the pasta salad again.

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of Edgar’s cakes but they have plenty of them for you to choose from. Anyway, definitely stop by Edgar’s Bakery for a wholesome tasty lunch, and a plethora of other options for dessert.

Todd English P.U.B. comes to Birmingham!

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on February 8, 2013

I’m so thrilled that Birmingham is adding to its already “delicious” foodie scene! Todd English P.U.B. will be opening next week (Thursday Todd English PubFebruary 14, 2013) inside of the new Westin Hotel at the Uptown Entertainment District.

William Todd English is a celebrity chef, restauranteur, author, entrepreneur, and television personality.

This pub themed restaurant specializes in American comfort foods and creative delicacies with an English twist, and of course since we live in the South, there will be a Southern twist as well. Highlights from the menu include a raw seafood bar, a variety of pot pies, burgers, salads, pickled foods, fish & chips, and over 60 beers on tap (including some local favs). And I wouldn’t be surprised if they added fried chicken for us Southerners lol!

For some reason, I feel that Todd English P.U.B. will resemble the television sitcom Cheers, lol idk but I do know that I will be there to see if this is true and to taste the food, of course. I’m so looking forward to everything about this restaurant and the strong impact that it will have on this great city of Birmingham.

Stay tuned for my review on the restaurant!
