Lots more food porn here….
If you haven’t read my first blog post of me showcasing Cardiff to my family check it out here!
Another day of taking my aunties and sister to my favourite food spots in Cardiff promised to be another tasty one.
After a leisurely breakfast and stroll through the city centre, shopping and such, we wandered down the ornate arcades for a spot of afternoon tea and cake. Baker Tea house is my favourite in Cardiff. The interior decoration is beautiful and the range of teas and hot chocolates are to die for. On this occasion we sat outside in the arcade itself and enjoyed hot tea from the cast iron pots, milkshakes and smoothies from glass jars, and a slice of cake…..yummy!
I enjoyed a coconut milkshake and a pot of fruit chai tea. My sister went for a mixed berry smoothie, and we shared banana and white chocolate cake! Truly indulgent.
We spent the afternoon exploring more of Cardiff city centre, then returned home for a little rest before more food!
I booked at table at Cafe Citta for dinner – an amazing Italian restaurant I have been to once before. It’s just off St Mary’s street and is highly rated amongst locals as being an amazing Italian and one of the best places to eat in Cardiff. They serve beautiful pasta dishes, hand spun pizzas cooked in a wood burning oven, and wonderful daily specials – all cooked in a kitchen no bigger than my bedroom.
As usual we arrived to a bustling small restaurant oozing the heavenly smell of garlic.
Naturally we ordered a bottle of prosecco to start proceedings!
For starters we shared brusheccta, olives, and (my favourite) polenta smothered in Dolce Latte cheese *drools*.
Delicious and demolished!
As we waited for our mains to arrive, I watched (and tried to snap) the chef spinning pizzas to the ceiling…
I had to go for pizza, and ordered one loaded with goats cheese, mozzarella, Italian meat and pepper. My sister ordered the seafood linguine which I have had before. Al dente pasta nestling sweet soft seafood…
Stuffed to the brim we went on to order pudding.
Cheese cake with some sort of fruit compote on top (wine=vague memory loss) and tiramisu for them….
And creme brulee for meeee!
All rounded off with a round of Lemoncello. Dreamy.
And with that last meal it was time to say goodbye to my sister and aunties. It had been a great weekend with great company! I’m so glad I managed to show them all my favourite spots in Cardiff – places that I would highly recommend to you all too!
Thanks for reading!
