banana green tea and peanut caramel dessert Zuma Rome

So after trying the eagerly awaited opening of Asador 44 for my birthday back in April for the evening menu and having our first taste of Old Cow, the revered Rubia Gallega aka Gallician Blond we have been meaning to come back to compare against the lunch time menu. Thankfully the lunchtime menu offer features […]

Zuma Restaurant Review Rome

zuma rome martini and restaurant review

So it was our final night in Rome and it was only by chance we found this place because it was recommended to us by a guy in Bocci when I was buying a shirt on the way past after our cocktails in the Stravinskij Bar. Instead of heading back to the Vatican for our […]

New summer menu launch at Chapel 1877

chapel 1877 summer menu launch

I was kindly asked to attend the new summer menu launch at Chapel 1877 this week on Churchil Way in Cardiff. I’d been twice previously for food but on both occassions for the Christmas dinner menu with work two years in a row but I’d not actually dinned from the main menu. I do remember […]

Turtle Bay Restaurant Review Cardiff

Bajan beef cheeks at Turtle Bay Cardiff

Being a lover of independant’s it’s very rare I go to a chain restaurant these days let alone make a repeat visit within 6 months. The restaurant in question is Turtle Bay, a Carribean themed restaurant located on St Mary Street next door to Kongs. If spice isn’t your thing you might want to skip […]

Popular Narberth and Aberystwyth Deli Ultracomedia’s Cardiff venue launched late last year after taking over the old Burger King building on the corner of Westgate Street and breaking from tradition they’ve rebranded the restaurant and deli Curado.

Pettigrew Tea Rooms Review – Cardiff Castle

Pettigrew Bakery at Riverside Market I’m a big fan of Pettigrew from first discovering them at Riverside Market on a Sunday with their arsenal of savoury and sugary goodies, tempting passing market visitors with generous helpings of tasters to hand. I think it’s fair to say i’ve gone through the whole menu at least once […]

The Savoy Grill Restaurant Review – London

The Savoy Grill Restaurant-2

Most people have probably heard of the Savoy Hotel on the Strand in London and equally most are probably aware of the Savoy Grill Restaurant at the hotel. It wasn’t exactly on my radar of places to try when in London as I thought it would be a bit over my budget but I was […]

We’ve been busting to try Owen from Bar 44’s new venture Asador 44 since following their instagram account since November 2016 although they only opened it’s doors about a month ago.

Porro Restaurant Review Llandaff, Cardiff

Pizza and pasta at Porro Italian Restaurant Lllandaff, Cardiff

Porro has been on my radar for a while now since I heard about the launch of the Wellfield Road addition and no more since my return from Italy last week. I’ve never been one for pasta to be honest but probably because I’ve only ever really had it at home and when your mum […]

Meat at 156 Burger Bar Review in Cardiff

Cheese burger

So we were invited to the launch of Cardiff’s latest arrival on the ever expanding burger scene recently on 156 City Road aptly named Meat at 156. The burger joint is an independant set up by three friends and look like they are pitching at a hole in the market for good, no frills affordable […]
