Grab & Go at Grand Central Birmingham

Modern life means we can’t always take time for a lunch break like we used to and often our lunch is bought on the hop with a limited timeframe to eat it in.  As such, we often compromise by purchasing whatever’s nearest to hand rather than buying something we truly fancy.

Recognising this trend, a variety of Grand Central’s restaurants and cafes have now developed a ‘Grab & Go’ offering which enables those who can’t take advantage of a long and lazy lunch, to experience quality, tasty food which is all available to grab and go in your lunch break. 

In addition to the restaurants mentioned below, Nandos, Giraffe, Handmade Burger Co., Caffe Concerto, Costa Coffee, Cocomacs, Joe + the Juice and Carluccios also offer every meal from their menus as a take away version for customers.

And not just reserved for lunchtimes, worth noting, all of the restaurants inside Grand Central offer a take away service from breakfast right through to dinner, so Grab & Go’s concept is for any time of day – a big plus if at the end of a horrendously long day you don’t feel like cooking at home and want some instant dinner or indeed if you need a little snackage for your onward train journey.  

With many vegetarian options available within Grand Central and with it still being National Vegetarian Week, it’s the ideal time for highlighting and celebrating the veggie Grab & Go offerings – life on the move never tasted so good! 

Now this has been brought to my attention, it makes me wish I worked in central Birmingham to take advantage of it all………

The only Vietnamese restaurant in Birmingham has proven very popular since its launch. ‘Pho to go’ is now being offered from their Grand Central restaurant, which makes eating their delicious salads, soups and noodles even easier! The food is cooked fresh to order so it’s well worth the few minutes wait.   For those that can take the heat, Bún chay Huế: hot & spicy tofu & mushroom (veggie stock base) has been recommended!
