Cardiff really is buzzing isn’t it? This weekend I was invited by my good friend Jay Page to the soft opening of Mowgli Street food. Situated in the old Poundstretcher, opposite the Old Arcade on Church Street, its a little doorway that packs a huge punch.
You are greeted with thousands of sparkling lights (and I mean thousands) on entry. The décor has a twist, and Jay and I, found ourselves sat in the open window…. on swings! Yep, instead of normal boring chairs, you get to swing yourself into the weekend (I mean literally here folks!!) while watching the world go by.
The service was excellent…. and the waitress was articulate in explaining how it all worked. There was a full separate vegan, separate vegetarian, and separate full page normal menu, so super impressed with the choice.
I opted for the Office Tiffin Box. Inside were 3 different curries and one rice. For me lamb and chickpea curry (they all have super dupa complicated names) won the day for me, but all were tasty. The chef changes the option on a daily basis, so you will never get bored of this dish. The Office Tiffin Box costs £16 , and honestly was too much to eat, so I thought great value too.
Off we popped after a bottle of wine (or two) to the Wales Millennium Centre. On a Saturday they’ve been hosting a set of Supper Clwb’s in Ffresh Restaurant. Each week has a theme, some musical, burlesque, comedy and drag just to name a few. We were there for the drag extravaganza that is Jolene Dover, hosted by Connie Orff. Featuring Victoria Scone and PomPom too, the night was full of sassy laughs to a full house and a standing ovation.
The Supper Clwb package costs £30 and includes a bellini cocktail on arrival, your live cabaret act, 3 plates of tapas style food, and a cocktail for your dessert! The night is perfect for everyone with the choice of shows, and perfect for a celebration. The list of shows can be found here: Supper Clwb Shows.
