Last weekend my sister and aunties came to visit me in my current home and favourite place; Cardiff.
My sister visits me quite a lot, however my aunties have never been here and I was keen to show them my adopted home city and all it had to offer – mainly my favourite food spots!
On our first day, we spent the afternoon wandering the quiet halls of the National Museum of Art gazing at Monet, Derain & Turner to name but a few..
All that gallery gazing meant we had worked up an appetite, and the first restaurant I decided to take us to was my favourite vegetarian spot in Cardiff – Milgi.
They do glorious vegetarian food using local organic ingredients, serve organic wine, and do killer cocktails.
Me and my aunty (excuse newly threaded and red eyebrows)…
The cocktail menu – I decided to go for a delicious sounding Watermelon Collins.
Choosing food here is a struggle because everything sounds so good!
For starter we all shared nachos with bean chilli, veggies, sour cream, jalapeños and salsa, and Mexican quesadillas with mango salsa. All spicey heaven.
Oh and mixed berry bellinis and more cocktails of course.
And onto the main courses.
Tortilla stack with crispy tortillas, refried beans, spiced potatoes, melted cheese, mango salsa, toasted quiona and seedy green salad &
Chickpea and sesame burger with tomato, gem lettuce, whipped feta, pickled red onion, alfala sprouts, wedges and slaw.
Courgette and potato curry with pickled onion, rice, aubergine and tomato pakora and cucumber raita.
All absolutely delicioussss.
Even though we were stuffed we couldn’t resist trying the puddings too!
I went for (the biggest portion) of Cinnamon Doughnuts with spiced chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream and my sister went for Lemon and Almond trifle with sherry raspberries, custard and cream.
You’re drooling at just the description right?…
Another fabulous meal in Milgi.
And I won’t embarrass myself by putting up the clubbing photos taken after this meal………
Stayed tuned for part 2 of my Cardiff weekend on Friday! Thanks for reading!
(Oh and if anyone has any foody recommendations in Cardiff please comment 🙂 )
