The SWiGG, Swansea

Word on the Marina was that there was a new brunch spot.

The SWiGG is a new cafe/bar right on the water in Swansea Marina. My dad had scoped it out the week before and said we had to go back, so one sunny Sunday morning we headed down to check it out.

First impressions are great. It's light, airy and well decorated and strikes you as versatile place that would be cwtchy in winter and cool in summer.

Their brunch menu is a good one and has a lot more on offer than just your standard eggs on toast. 

I went for the avocado and poached egg on honey and spelt toast and although it was on the small side, the presentation and quality was spot on. It would be an ideal place if you like the idea of a tapas breakfast. I could have done with another portion or maybe a dish of something else, I quite like the idea of lots of different plates of breakfasty deliciousness. 

Anyway this particular morning it worked out well as the Uplands Market was pitched up just ahead and I saw that the Pwdin Cart had peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake... 

So I liked this new joint and I will definitely be back to SWiGG on some cold rose in the sunshine this summer.


Sunset Supper Club

So word on the street was that there was a Thai food speakeasy coming to town. It's run by my favourite street food pop up, Brother Thai, I heard there would be cocktails and Thai food and that's enough persuading for me.

It's top secret so I won't tell you too much or the tourist police will be after me. So what I can say is if you love food, have ever been or wanted to go to Thailand - just take my word and book a table ASAP, they will be running every Friday and Saturday throughout April in a secret location in Cardiff City Centre, there is very limited seating so be quick!

You book from ringing 07936842549 and leaving your details and it goes from there. You will be provided with a map so just take your compass and you will be fine. It all reminded me a bit of the film The Beach - That secret map that takes them to complete paradise but the tourists can't find out - That's a bit like Sunset Supper Club.

It's a place to completely switch off and have amazing food and drink with your favourite people. I felt completely relaxed and so happy when I was there, they have created such an amazing, well thought out experience that is a MUST for all foodies or anyone who loves something a bit different.

I went to Thailand this time last year and completely fell in love with everything about it,  I felt like I was transported back last night and that made me very happy indeed.

TIP: Wear something comfy, clean socks and why not some sunnies?!

a proper Thai-dee evening.
