MIX is at it again!

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on April 15, 2012

So not too long ago I met & had lunch with, Jan, the Event Planner for “MIX”, a bakery and deli in the heart of downtown Birmingham. We had a great conversation over one of the newest additions to the menu; the hamburger sliders.

This special comes with two hamburger sliders & the signature chips. These delicious sliders can be eaten in about three bites.  They are made up of 100% 8 oz. Grass Fed Burger with Mushroom Ragout- Wright’s Dairy Cheese-Lettuce, Tomato, & Onion served on our MIX soft billowy burger roll (made in house) @  $10! The buns were toasted, which is a plus in my book.

The signature chips consisted of sweet potato, potato, & beet chips. All of them were yummy and added a special health conscious approach to this menu item. My favorites were the beet chips…….so delicious!

Next time you’re in the area swing by “MIX” & try these classic hamburger sliders.

The Dinner Club Meets “Cantina”

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on June 30, 2010

On Friday night, the dinner club met at “Cantina” in Pepper Place, which is in downtown Birmingham. The interior of the restaurant is large and festive; it seems to have an old-world, classic Spanish influence. For example, there are burned candles, lanterns, wooden seats, wooden tables, rusted wrought iron seats, and rusted wrought iron tables spread throughout the restaurant.  Where ever you look there is a large flat screen TV, and when I went they were all showing the “World Cup” soccer game. Lastly, the menu is diverse and has a Latin American flavor.

About 17 people showed up to the monthly dinner club social, and we had a wonderful time! We made one long table out of several tables, and we were all able to sit together. It seems like everyone ordered something different from the other, and I had one of my favorite dishes from here, the “Fish Taco” with “Sweet Potato Chips”. The taco came with a soft flour tortilla, egg washed tilapia filet, slaw, avocado, cilantro mayo, and chile de arbol salsa. This dish tasted well and was lite and filling. I was so busy taking pictures of the other dinner club members food, that I didn’t get to capture my own. However, below are pictures of some of what they ordered.

We definitely enjoyed “Cantina” and gave it a rating of 9.0. The members and myself gave it rave reviews and we were pleased with every aspect!
