B:Eats, the daytime cafe and pre-concert eatery located in Symphony Hall, will be launching a brand new winter menu on Monday 6th November, with their very own version of the Birmingham Soup. 

The Birmingham Soup, a hearty broth containing stewed beef and vegetables served with a slice of bread, originated in the 18th century. It was created by Matthew Boulton to provide a cheap and nourishing meal during a time of poor harvest and the opening of soup kitchens. In homage, B:Eats have created their own version for their 2nd winter menu, which will be served alongside their trademark Brummie Bacon Cake. 

Additional new items on the lunchtime menu include Half-Pounder Cheese and Bacon Burger (two quarter pound beef burgers topped with cheese, streaky bacon, house burger sauce, lettuce, tomato and gherkins, all served within a toasted pretzel roll), Southern Fried Chicken Burger (Southern fried chicken breast, topped with hash brown, cheese, BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato and served in a toasted brioche bun). 

The cafe will also be serving Roasted Cauliflower With Chickpeas (Indian inspired roasted cauliflower and chickpeas with red onion, baby leaf spinach and coconut milk yoghurt), Creamy Wild Mushroom Gnocchi (gnocchi with pan-friend wild mushrooms, shallots, baby leaf spinach, all served in a creamy Dijon sauce) and the Birmingham Soup (beef and vegetable broth, served along side their Brummie Bacon Cake with salted butter). 

Lee Hollington, Head Chef at B:Music said: “We’re all really looking forward to launching our 2nd Winter menu here at B:Eats. There’s nothing better to warm you up on a Winter’s day than a hearty bowl of food, so I was really happy to be able to bring my own version of The Birmingham Soup to the cafe. Served alongside our infamous Brummie Bacon Cakes, we hope our loyal customers enjoy it just as much as I did creating it!”

B:Eats is open Monday to Saturday from 11am - 4pm.
