The sheer joy of consuming carbs in Birmingham’s Italian restaurants. Birmingham is the largest and most populous British city outside London, and with that title comes a whole bunch of amazing Italian food spots. If you love carbohydrates, then you’ll be well chuffed with everything that the Italian restaurants of Birmingham have to offer… The beauty of eating Italian food is just how many courses that traditional Italian meals are comprised of. Not content with a mere meat-and-two-veg, the Italian culinary culture is an art in itself. Kicking off with some antipasto, guests at a traditional Italian banquet will be treated to cold meats, cheeses, roast vegetables and bread based snacks like bruschetta or crostini. Then moving on to the first of two main courses (yes, TWO!), a hot ‘primo’ is served consisting of something like pasta, risotto or gnocchi. After that a ‘secondo’ is served involving different meats or types of fish. Then if you’ve got any room left - you can continue to treat yourself with some tiramisu, panna cotta, cake or pie. Drooling already? Birmingham’s Italian restaurants have got all these amazing courses on offer, and then some.
