Sosban Restaurant Review Llanelli

The Sosban restaurant in Llanelli at night

Sosban has been on my hit list for a while now but I’ve not got around to organising a trip down to Llanelli’s most highly regarded restaurant located within a listed Victorian Pump House close to the docks due to the fact it’s not within easy reach of uber. If you’ve been watching this years […]

Gymkhana Restaurant Review – Mayfair, London

Lunch Indian tasting menu at Gymkhana - Mayfair, London

Gymkhana is another restaurant I only found out about recently after researching gin and food pairing for a recent Cardiff Gin Club collaboration.

I only became aware of Dukes Hotel recently from following The East India Company Gin page on Instagram, after seeing they were doing an afternoon tea with mini Mar-tea-ni’s at the hotel.

Marias Greek Taverna Cardiff Review

It was the other half’s birthday a few weeks back and unlike us, we hadn’t booked anywhere to go. She’s fancied Hellenic Eatery for a while but it’s always be chocka block every time we’ve passed. We tried calling them as soon as we got home from work but again, there was no room at […]

If you’re looking for some inspiration for some classic cocktails or my spin on classic gin and whisky cocktails then these few cocktails might be right up your street. I’m mostly found drinking gin when out in bars in the evening but I’m a sucker for a Japanese whisky, especially the Nikka Whisky range. Luckily […]

Bara Menyn Restaurant Review – Porth Teiger Cardiff Bay

Bara Menyn used to be one of my favourite breakfasts in Cardiff back when Catrin was running the kitchen out of Ffandangos in Llandaff, but they parted ways so they could concentrate on a solo project. From humble beginnings starting out at Castle Emporium on Womamby Street, Bara Menyn have now taken over an empty unit […]

Afternoon Tea Review at The Angel Hotel and Oak Rooms in Abergavenny

Afternoon Tea at The Angel Hotel Abergavenny with East India Company Tea

We had an invite to attend a high tea at Abergavenny’s most renowned hotel, The Angel Hotel recently.

Not only celebrating some […]

Burger and dirty fries at Burger Theory, Kongs

I was recently asked back to try out the burgers at Burger Theory at Kongs in Cardiff. I’d been a few times in the past and did a blog post after my second visit to the pop up kitchen on St Mary’s Street. I’m glad to say that things have improved quite a bit since […]
