Last full day in Cardiff.
Time to stock up on the good stuff.
Some recent Welsh language fiction, some CDs (‘Billy The Seal’ will be played on October 18th) and local cuisine.
Therefore, it was a day of two culinary halves.
Lunch was at Cardiff Market.
It has been a while since I had partaken in this delicacy. My taste buds went into overdrive.
This is “poor man’s goose” with local vegetables and fried potato wedges AKA faggots, peas & chips + bara menyn/bread&butter.
The gravy was hefty, the meat dish superb and the chips beyond compare…some of the peas were even green !
After that joyous repast and a saunter around the city centre it was time to exchange the kitchen for the front parlour.
Pettigrews Tea Rooms sits in a gatehouse in Bute Park just up from the castle and is the realisation of a dream held by one man to bake cakes & serve good old afternoon tea.
He done good.
Or to put it another way.
