It’s time to …blog!


So it appears that I haven’t blogged in far too long and now the content of my blog seems a little outdated. Initially it was set up with the intention of letting people know what they could do for fun and laughs in Cardiff as part of a university project, but now I feel like I may just blog about whatever I feel like blogging about. So here goes, one of my favourite things to do in Cardiff and generally in life is to eat. There are so many wonderful restaurants in Cardiff and not just in the town centre but also in Canton/Pontcanna.  Since moving to Canton a year ago I have taken it upon myself to try as many different ones as I can.

One of these is the ‘Hangfire Smokehouse Southern Style BBQ’ restaurant in the Lansdowne pub in Canton.  I’ve only been once but the food is so delicious that I am visiting again tonight to share the wonderful experience with a friend who is visiting from London. It’s a pop up restaurant on Thursday and Friday evenings from 5 until 9 (or until they sell out!) but you have to be quick as it sells out pretty quickly (because it tastes sooooo good!!!) The Lansdowne is a great pub with a great atmosphere and that’s why it makes for a perfect place to eat/drink/socialise.
