Before he found world-wide fame as a Stirrer blogger, Andy Munro was best known for being the leading authority on Birmingham’s balti restaurants. Not before time, he’s now turning his hand to promoting them once more.

A new website celebrating Birmingham’s most famous culinary invention is being launched this week.

www.balti-birmingham.co.uk promises a history lesson and a definiton of a genuine balti as well as restaurant reviews and the opportunity for customer feedback. There will also be a guide to the Balti Triangle, showing the attractions in the area if you’re not just there to eat.

Andy Munro, previously author of the Essential Street Balti guide and advisor to ABRA, whose idea the site was, says “I wanted a definitive and independent Birmingham based site which not only properly documented what is a balti but gives baltigoers the opportunity to comment and rate restaurants in the Balti Triangle.”

Birmingham’s restaurant scene has improved out of sight in recent years with Michelin stars and world-ranked chefs operating in the city but our greatest gift to gastronomy has tended to be overlooked as a result and it’s about time this oversight was rectified. Not everyone can afford Michelin standard but a decent balti is available to all.

balti-birmingham.co.uk will tell you all about them.

Andy Munro would like to point out that 'my views are personal and not those of the City Council'
