Lunch @ The Corner House, Cardiff (Wales)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

While out in Cardiff locating the Snowdogs in Cardiff, I stopped off to get some lunch in the shopping area on Caroline Street, outside one of the large shopping malls in the city. Quite a few restaurants and pubs are around this area, but The Corner House restaurant called out to me as a modern-looking building on the corner of the busy streets with the buzz of shoppers and a group of people promoting a well-known brand of sweet through song, dance, and free samples. Visitors could sit inside or outside, but we opted to sit inside (mainly because the bloke wishes to avoid smokers, though it was a relatively lovely autumn day).


The inside of the restaurant is modern, and due to its position on the corner, there is an abundance of natural light. The pub is inside, but there is also a different section for the restaurant, although we sat in the pub-cafe area.


We decided to try the cocktails first, and I opted for a rhubarb fizz one while the bloke had a mocktail. The cocktail tasted a little too strong of carbonated water to me, so I ended up ordering another mocktail later. I cannot remember what flavour the mocktail was, but it had a nice sweet-sour taste.



I was going to order the spit-roasted chicken, but I was tempted by the "specials" menu, which had a chicken dish with potatoes and pak choi. Meanwhile, the bloke had the selection of meats with chips, which was also on the "specials" menu. I must say that my meal was one of the best that I have eaten in a long time. Apparently the meats were nice as well.



For dessert, the "melting golden chocolate bomb" caught my eye, and I guessed that it would have been similar to the one I had at Bob Bob Ricard a few years ago, so I decided to try it to see what it was. It was very similar to that, but it was filled with caramel ice cream, chocolate popping candy, and Devon cream toffee sauce (which was what was poured over the chocolate shell to melt it). It was delicious and just the right amount of ice cream/toffee/chocolate without being too rich.


After we finished, we headed back onto the streets of Cardiff to look for more snowdog sculptures and look into a couple of shops.
