Making Pizza’s With Strada, Mailbox Birmingham
Last week Lewis received an invite he just could not resist, it involved Pizza, making and eating pizza, effectively this was a huge lottery win for a any 6 year old! So on Tuesday Lewis and I spent some Mummy-Son time together, travelled over to the Birmingham Mailbox to have some fun at Strada Italian Restaurant to celebrate the launch of the new Children’s menu.
When we arrived we were taken upstairs to a laid out area to hold our event with other Midlands bloggers. We took our seats and got to work reading the menu and Lewis working on his activity pack. After ordering our drinks we ordered our meals which we shall tell you about shortly.
With our meals ordered we were ushered over to the Pizza making station where each child got to create their own pizza’s using a range of toppings, cheeses and sauces provided. Provided with hats and aprons to protect clothing Lewis couldn’t wait to get started. Lewis loves Ham Pizza’s so he was delighted to add this as his first topping and then finished it off with his favourite vegetables, peas and broccoli. His finished creation was soon whisked away for cooking and returned for us to eat, it was absolutely delicious.
Whilst Lewis’s pizza was cooking we were provided with an array of starters to try out, as we sat with Zoe (from MamaGeek) we shared our starters between us and the kids. First up came the garlic flatbread with mozzarella and veggie dippers with tomato sauce from the childrens menu which didn’t last very long as they were delicious, the kids really did polish off their flatbread quickly. For the adults came Tomato & Ricotta Bruschetta and Melon with Parma Ham, I am very fond of Melon with Parma Ham so this really didn’t last long with me around, drizzled on it is extra virgin olive oil which really did top of the taste nicely.
For our main courses Lewis ordered the Baked Market Fish Fillet with chips whilst I ordered Fish Fritti’s. One thing I really liked about our main courses was that Lewis’s fish was fresh, no batter and also no bones which is perfect for Children and the fries, lightly seasoned were delicious. My main course featured a few different fish, salmon, squid and seabass, lightly crumbed served with tartare sauce and these were great!
After all this food, I knew I wouldn’t need to eat for the remainder of the week but Lewis STILL had room for pudding – he’s a growing boy!
We really enjoyed our time at Strada, the food was delicious and what’s more each Child’s meal is made from scratch and is very reasonably priced at £6.50 which includes, starter, main course, pudding and a drink. Strada are always on the hunt for new meal idea’s, regularly changing their menu on a monthly basis which is refreshing and provides excellent variety for each visit.
To further celebrate the launch of the new Children’s Menu at Strada, they are currently running a great competition to win a family meal for 5 people, you can enter by heading over to the Strada Website.
