This Crwys Road eaterie offers several other options such as schnitzel and spicy omelette, but we heartily recommend the eponymous dish, served with as much salad as you can cram into a pitta…

The Cosy Club is one of those magical places where you can get really drunk at night and overcome your hangover the following morning. Weekend brunches don’t get much better than this.

3. Pork Belly from The Potted Pig

The clue’s in the name people, this restaurant knows its pork. One of Cardiff’s swankier venues, save this for a big occasion (i.e. one where somebody else is paying).

4. An Omelette from The Deck Coffee House & Cakery

The Deck

If you thought Gavin & Stacey’s Gwen made the ultimate Welsh omelette, think again. Visit The Deck and order your omelette with more fillings than even Nessa could imagine…

Cocktail-in-a-jam-jar fans will love Barker Teahouse’s milkshakes-in-a-milk-bottle idea. Oh and the giant slices of droolsome cake.

Once you’re done exploring the yurt in the back garden of this 100% vegetarian restaurant (because, YOLO), settle down to a dish of deep-fried cheese and chips. So wrong, but SO RIGHT.

They’re the best Welsh export since Tom Jones’ pelvis, so it’s only fitting that Welsh cakes have a Cardiff Bay shop dedicated completely to them. Enjoy these sugary delights fresh from the oven.
