Taste Swansea's Food and Drink Digest #12 (March 13th 2016)

We're back! And we have a great selection of foodie news and events below for you to sink your teeth into. We will return in couple of weeks, but for now remember to follow us on Twitter for more updates.


Not seen it yet? Where have you been! The special spring edition of Taste Swansea magazine is now available in both its printed and digital format. Full of foodie news, expert opinions, recipes, competitions, and even a free muffin! Grab a copy today.


After months of hard work, Brynmill Coffee House is finally opening its doors on 18th April (next Monday). Sitting on Brynmill Lane, by the pelican crossing at the entrance to both Brynmill and Singleton Parks, the new place will serve up a range of home-made authentic Memphis lunch specials inspired by the co-owner, Memphis-born Rick Miller. These will include traditional American grills, Mexican dishes, and a delicious white bean chicken chilli. Sounds great!

TAPAS @ 1825

Every Friday, starting this week, 1825 Coffee Shop - inside the Dylan Thomas Centre - are serving up authentic Spanish tapas, including Tortilla Espanola, Patatas Bravas, and Pincho de Questo. An introductory offer sees three tapas dishes for £8 for the first month. And with a alcohol licence, it would be a shame not to wash it down with a little sangria...


J-Shed favourite, Cafe TwoCann has introduced a new evening a la carte menu available between Wednesdays and Saturdays. New starters include steamed mussels in Gwynt y Ddraig Cider, chorizo, green chilli and tomato sauce, while a new dish for the mains includes a duo of duck breast and confit duck leg with parsnip puree, purple kale, fondant potato and plum jus. Yum!


The lovely little cafe Ty, on the corner of Woodville Road and Queens Road (in Mumbles), has recently had a lovely refurb, and looks nice and fresh. If you've not tried it I highly recommend it - a really nice, homely cafe that serve up an epic array of fresh sandwiches, soups and salads. Not forgetting coffee!


We no longer seem to have a bustling pop-up kitchen scene in Swansea, which is a shame as they are a great concept. However one which remains very popular is the Noah's Yard mainstay Malabar Aaanaa, who whip up their delicious Keralan Kitchens and Persian Kitchens on select Wednesday evenings. The next Keralan Kitchen takes place tonight (13th April), before the Persian Kitchen on 4th May. Well worth a visit!


Although pop-up kitchens may be a little scarce, there is a plethora of local produce markets! Upcoming this weekend, on Saturday (16th April) we have the Penclawdd Local Produce Market, before the Uplands Market returns two weeks later on Saturday, 30th April. The week after, you'll find the Sketty Local Produce Market (Saturday, 7th May) back at Bishop Gore School.


Remember, it's free to feature on this blog. Just send us your foodie news and upcoming events, and we will do our best to include them in the next installment.
