The Street Food Warehouse

When it comes to street food, I am like a meerkat. You will often find me up on my hind legs (twitter) in search of a naughty burger, with some quirky sauce, wrapped in newspaper.

Burgers, Beers and a bunch of my favourite people is my idea of a perfect evening, this is exactly what last night involved.

I had done enough twitter stalking to know that The Street Food Warehouse was right up my street; Beer served in brown paper bags and rosemary fries. Where do I sign up?

So this little foodie gathering can be found under the stadium at Cardiff Arms Park. Music blaring from a little veggie stall and the smell of sizzling burgers is enough to make anyone excited. 

In order to fit in, you must order a beer which comes in a brown bag, I felt like a chic tramp and I loved it. After this, it didn't take me long to pick my food, when there is a huge sign that reads 'GRILLED HALLOUMI' consider it sold, to the cheese loving, chic tramp. 

The Rad Burger Company was the busiest stall by far, we queued for a while but it was soo worth it. I had the Rad Beef burger, it came stuffed with bacon, halloumi, rocket, mango chutney and garlic mayo. I had the rosemary fries too, as it would be a crime to order a burger without chips, and I had so much thyme for these bad boys.

So feeling sufficiently stuffed from this, I still had room for a cocktail. This is what Ten Mill Lane do best and naturally, I had my eye on the gin one since we arrived. It was served in a noodle box with chopsticks and a fortune cookie, I think I slurped the whole thing and inhaled the raspberries in about 5 seconds. It was fruity, fabulous and my idea of the perfect cocktail.

At some point or another, I think I have managed to try all the stalls. Meat in the middle had some pretty nawty hot dogs - we managed to get mustard over my face, my hands, my phone and Kierans shoe. 

For the sweet tooth, Mr Churro was there with his delicious donut-like sticks with warm chocolate for dunking. Uh-mazing.

Pitch were serving up welsh nacho's with the help from Norma, the cutest boston terrier you will ever see and Nata & Co showed off an impressive display of Portuguese pastries. These are 2 of my favourite food places in Cardiff, so if you haven't tried them yet, I urge you too. Pitch is nestled on Mill Lane and you can find Nata on Clifton Street in Splott - A dangerous 2 minute walk from my work...

So if you've got plans for next weekend, cancel them. Say you are busy washing your hair and get down to The Street Food Warehouse for some seriously good nosh.


The Potted Pig

Leave a Comment
If you have any interest in food, I imagine you have been to The Potted Pig. It is one of my absolute favourite places to eat in Cardiff.

It is located on St Mary's Street, just look for the tin pig and the unassuming, HEAVY door. (This makes it the perfect place for a date, as the man can show how effortlessly he can open the door for you.)

I have been here a few times and have tried the lunch and dinner menu, both have been equally as scrummy. If you haven't been for lunch, YOU MUST, it is so tasty and excellent value for money. 

But its best feature? It has to be the gin menu. As you can probably tell, I am quite the gin lover and this place definitely has the best selection in Cardiff.

Anyway, this visit to the PP was a very special one, it was our little Nina's birthday, so gin and dinner was a must. There was thickly sliced bread and butter waiting at the table when we arrived - squidgy bread is my downfall, so I could have quite happily feasted on this alone, but with a menu to die for, I guarantee that choosing will probably be one of the hardest decisions you will ever make. I'm not a vegetarian but I can't resist the veggie option if it involves some sort of melted cheese.

This time I went for a starter of sprouting broccoli with blue cheese and breadcrumbs, with a side of hand cut chips and greens. The greens were swimming in the most delicious buttery goodness, it was all superb.

The portions can look quite small, but they are so rich and delicious, that it is always the perfect amount to leave you satisfied. Also I knew we were having birthday cake and this is what Sophie does best, so I made sure I left a large cake shaped gap for this. This time we had the most fabulous raspberry sponge cake. I seriously cannot wait for my birthday...

Whilst this was going on, WGP was hatching a plan. Her dangerous mind is one that makes her a fantastic wing woman. I won't go into too much detail, just that it involved a note, a table of giggling girls, a table of terrified boys and a fabulous can guess the rest.

Thank you PP for the most fabulous evening! 
Expect another visit soon, we will bring our own pen...
