There are some wonderful pop-up kitchens in Swansea - some established, some brand new.
If you are quick, you can still get to the long-running Keralan Kitchen at Noah's Yard in the Uplands tonight (2 September), from 7.15pm. Run by a passionate and knowledgeable cook, tonight's kitchen will be a special Onam Feast, consisting of 13 vegetarian taster dishes per person! Costs £21.50 per person (for walk-in tickets).

Coming up next week - on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 September - a new pop-up kitchen will take place at the lovely Steam Coffee Shop, also in the Uplands. The superb five-course dinner is supplied by the popular Hardies Supper Club. Both evenings start at 6.30pm, with tickets at £35 each. Check their Facebook page for more details.
This Saturday (5 September) we have Sketty Local Produce Market, which takes place at Bishop Gore School. Next Saturday (12 September) the Mumbles Farmers' Market will be back at the seafront, offering a mix of superb local producers and some from further afield.
This week marks the opening of the long-awaited Rasoi Waterfront - the first Indian kitchen in SA1. I'm looking forward to giving it a visit - I've heard so many good things about their well established, multi-award winning restaurant in Pontlliw, so their second restaurant in the J-Shed will surely be something worth visiting. I can't wait.
|Since writing this post I've updated the photo to the food I ate on opening night at Walkabout - excellent!|
Meanwhile another long-standing venue, Walkabout, will be reopening its doors on Wind Street on Thursday (3 September). The Australian-themed chain restaurant underwent a £750,000 refurbishment and is set to become one of the glitziest places in Swansea's bar quarter. It needed the facelift - the old place was pretty drab - so this is very welcome news. Check back for my thoughts on the opening night.
