various pics of what i have on my doorstep

25 November 2017

The dead canary was well hyped up and recommended by friends and magazines as a speak easy style bar. The entrance was discreet and it felt exclusive but the sitting area is a bit like a coffee shop and it was not as glamorous as it made out. Cocktails are ok but i prefer dirty martini.

Octavo's food cafe and wine bar has a relaxed setting and is a cafe with books by day. The pizza of the fay-ham, salami and sun dried tomatoes was delicious!

Checked out street food cardiff. Nicely decorated but the cuban sandwich was expensive but the venezulan cornbread bun with cheese and refried back beans was tasty. We also had fresh doughnuts, away too sweet frozen magarita and a frontier beer.

Depot in cardiff is a former industrial building which has been transformed into a street food, cocktails and craft beer venue. The vibe is hip and not rowdy. The pizza was good and 2-4-1 cocktails on a sat night made it even more worth it.

Dirty martini- one of many new cocktail bars which opened in cardiff. Both cocktails and mocktails were delicious and not watered down. Also long happy hours which means half price (£4.50) cocktails which is always a plus.

Sometimes i get carried away with visiting amazing places afar and forget what i have on my doorstep. I am incredibly lucky to live in my husband's hometown where it is relatively accessible to international airports and major roads and close to a vibrant and hip city which itself has come a long way from what it was when i first came to wales 10 years ago. Also, i can walk to the beach and see the welsh heritage coast and more creative and interesting restaurants and microbreweries have opened in the town and also nearby. Oh and let us not forget to mention the arrival of aston martin to take the glamour to another level.
