Gourmet takeaway launches in Harborne

Former Simpsons chef opens new concept in fine dining.

Chef Daniel Sweet, previously of Michelin starred Simpsons, is launching gourmet takeaway Qbox on Thursday 24th June on Harborne High Street.

The concept is the first of its kind in Birmingham, offering takeaway boxes of exceptional quality food that focus on flavour and seasonality, whilst utilising the precision and technique that Dan learnt under the tutelage of Luke Tipping at Simpsons. The takeout menu will change frequently and will offer lunch, dinner and Sunday Roast options, with boxes starting from £9.95.

The opening menu features crispy glazed chicken with spring onion, chilli, and sesame, and house-made ricotta stuffed courgettes, asparagus salad, and courgette purée. A typical Sunday menu will feature roast chicken served with pomme purée, confit carrots, buttered hispi cabbage, and chicken sauce. Herbs are grown by Dan, and Qbox will be the UK’s first takeaway outfit to sell Difference Coffee; a premium provider used by some of the country’s best restaurants.

Commenting on the launch, Daniel said: “From growing up in Wolverhampton and being taught to cook by my Nan, to our yearly childhood holidays in Southern Italy, I’ve always been surrounded by great food. My time under Luke at Simpsons taught me to respect ingredients and I’m looking forward to bringing that same quality to Harborne High Street”.
