Birmingham Traditional Food 

1. Groaty Pudding

2. Birmingham Balti

It’s not food; it’s how the food is made or accurately the pot in which the food is cooked. Balti is a large steel/iron dish. It is believed to be a Pakistani way of cooking food. You will find various destinations all over Birmingham in which Balti is served. 

3. Pork scratchings

Not quite the healthy thing to eat, but it is said to be delicious for a quick on the go snack. As most of the Birmingham food, it was optimised to fit the culture back then and be an industrial one; Pork scratchings were made to be an energy source for labour workers who used to use every part of their pork meat, which led to this one. Pork scratchings are made by frying or roasting the pig’s skin, rind or both in its own fat.

4. Faggots - Savoury Ducks

Despite the very disturbing name, it’s known to be a budget-friendly, yet delicious quick meal that labour workers used to be fond of. Savoury Ducks are discarded meat and offal coated with bread crumbs and onions, served soaked in gravy and peas.
