What they say:
It's long been delighting Birmingham's street food pop ups and now Holy Moly Macaroni is here to stay. The renowned soul food outfit is taking over a space in Grand Central shopping centre and bringing with it a whole lot of American vibes. Inspired by a trip to Harlem, the founders are transforming the 60-cover restaurant into a slice of USA-cool, with neon signs, bright colours and industrial fittings to reflect the New York suburb.
What we say:
With a name like Holy Moly Macaroni, this new restaurant is specialising in homely, comforting soul food - much of which will be macaroni. Expect a whole host of twists on your traditional mac 'n' cheese, from The Vampire Slayer (with added garlic and Parmesan oil) through to The Fun Guy (smoked pancetta and wild mushrooms). It's not just this delicious cheesy dish, the spot will also be knocking up whacking plates of waffles and fried chicken, along with a selection of vegan and vegetarian eats.
