As i’ve mentioned previously on the site, Park House is a well kept secret close to the city centre but off the beaten track of those scouring the streets of the Welsh capital following their the scents wafting around the bustling arcades and side streets that are the usual suspects for filling hungry bellies.
They don’t just have Dave whose just done his level 1 BTEC in food behind the kitchen churning out plates of cheese and onion sandwiches and a wedge of stale Victoria Sponge here, oh no!
A little bit about the accolades of the hidden gem and the man behind the sorcery being concocted behind the flames in the kitchen.
The 2-AA-Rosette restaurant is “one of the most enjoyable places to eat in Cardiff”, according to The AA Restaurant Guide 2016.
Head chef Iain Inman, who has worked with the likes of Jean-Christophe Novelli, gained experience at the 2-Michelin-star The Square Restaurant, and was later appointed head chef at the 5-star Pennyhill Park under the mentorship of 2-Michelin-star chef Michael Wignall.
Park House has won multiple awards, including the South Wales Echo’s Restaurant of the Year 2013-2014, and the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence 2015.
So why have I never been to this contender for best restaurant of the year in Wales before? Well you’ve only got yourself to blame for that one but fear not if you jog on over to Travelzoo right now you can sample some of the magnificent creations that are being expertly crafted to meet the high expectations of Park Houses dinners for a fraction of the normal price of the afternoon tea.

If like me you’re struggling to get back into some sense of reality after gorging yourself on a weeks worth of calories in a single sitting after Christmas, then you will be glad to hear you can actually have a breakfast that will leave you feeling fulfilled without needing an immediate course of liposuction to suck the gallon of grease straight out of your hips!
Step forward Pure Kitchen in Cardiff Bayon the doorstep of the Wales Millennium Centre offering hearty, guilt free, flavour bombs for breakfast and lunch from 4 egg omelettes with grilled chicken, chorizo or steak breakfasts, full english breakfasts, toasted muffins or pancakes topped with fresh fruit.
Pure Kitchen offer breakfasts, fresh smoothies and juices, salads and freshly cooked lunches with the leanest of meats you could ever have adorning your plate to eat in or packed tightly into a takeaway box to eat at your leisure.
You’ve probably walked past one of Cardiff Bay’s most rated breakfast eateries, which managed to chart on Buzzfeed’s top 16 places to grab breakfast in the Capitalrecently as it’s parked in between the roads directly outside the Wales Millennium Centre and opposite your route from The Red Dragon Centre to the Bay.
I’ve been on a mission the past week signing up for every subscription service in existence i think! It’s probably something to do with my browsing history but i’ve been having a fair few deals popping up on my Facebook and one that stood out for me was the flavourly gourmet food box. Flavourly is like a giant graze box although you don’t have to worry about it being too healthy as there’s a few naughty things in there if you’re not counting your calories like me.
I’m a sucker for a bargain and good discount and the thing that caught my eye was the more than half price discount of the Flavourly box from the link on Facebook giving you £10 off the normal price of £17.
In the Flavourly boxyou’re promised 10-15 gourmet goodies from some well known favourites to upcoming and eager to break through food and confectionary producers from around the UK. You can either just get a random box delivered to your door or you can customise your box by doing a short quiz to let them know some of your preferences on the type of foods and cuisine you enjoy most and those you don’t.
My discounted Flavourly gourmet food box arrived at home yesterday and thank god my sister is on school half term to answer the door to the postie as I was dying to see what was inside and didn’t fancy taking a few hours off work to pick it up at my local post office, which is so local its over 10 MILES AWAY!!
In my first Flavourly Gourmet Food Hamper I had:
Salted Caramel Popcorn
Rosemary and thyme pitta chips
Umami spiced garlic paste
Oregano infused rapeseed oil
Cook’s companion seasoning blend
Thai red curry spice mix, oil and paste
Superfusions berry mix
Janis quality mixture savoury snacks
Willie’s Cacao El Blanco chocolate
I’d estimate the box contents cost around £20 without delivery whereas I paid £7 instead of the normal £17 with the Flavourly discounted first box and £4 for delivery totalling £11. So yo are probably getting your money’s worth with the full priced box compared to some hampers that are quite expensive and you just normally end up paying for the packaging and box.
The good thing about these Flavourly boxes is they hunt down some great suppliers and producers that you won’t find in your supermarket as some are just starting out or might only be selling them at their local deli and food markets but that could be the other end of the country so it’s a good way of stumbling on some right nuggets that you would’t have come across otherwise.
Once you’ve signed up you can also keep getting discounts on your future orders by recommending friends and family with them also getting £10 off their first box but you also get £5 credit towards your next box. Who knows if you’ve got enough friends who don’t like eating bland crap like most people and you can tempt them to join up you might never have to buy another box yourself with the flavourly discount referral theme.
