Farm Burger Birmingham’s No. 2: The Vegan Burger

With its cow logo and emphasis on grass fed beef, I didn’t expect relatively-new-to-Downtown-Birmingham’s Farm Burger to have any vegetarian options, let alone a delish vegan burger. In fact, I wouldn’t have even investigated had a vegetarian colleague not suggest… Continue Reading →

Gojo Ethiopian Cafe

Don’t judge a restaurant by it’s exterior. While Gojo looks modest from the outside, don’t let that fool you. You definitely want to go inside for a flavorful feast. Park in the back and walk around to the front entrance… Continue Reading →
