Over the decades comfort food has become somewhat of a cult movement in England, with hordes of heart-warming fish and chips with mushy peas and deliciously moreish cottage pies being devoured with lustful enthusiasm and careless abandon by thousands each day across the country.
Indeed, whilst other nations all have their speciality comfort dishes, there’s something almost indescribable about British cuisine that warms the soul and keeps us coming back for more and more. However, whilst utterly enjoyed and secretly craved by all food enthusiasts and hungry citizens who call this island of ours home, in today’s world we find that often comfort food isn’t given the recognition it deserves in regard to its quality and presentation. So, with bellies a-rumbling in sheer anticipation, we decided to visit a restaurant which aims to changing our faltering perceptions of this noble cuisine.
Welcome to Ju Ju’s Café – because no one does comfort food quite like the British.
Located in Canal Square (just a short walk away from Brindleyplace), Ju Ju’s Café is a cosy, elegant canal-side restaurant dedicated to making your mouths water and your taste buds tingle with some of the tastiest British-inspired comfort food to be found in all of Birmingham.
