Cardiff chitter-chatter, news and more

Plumdaff

joy in people
I've a mate involved in the campaign who says they now suspect the Rapport plan all along has been to force the existing businesses out and get in higher paying tenants or convert to luxury dwellings 'in an historic conservation area'. At this point the buildings are probably safe, the Gwdihŵ and the two restaurants in deep trouble.

Whilst on the face of it this appears to be good news, I wouldn't put it past the Rapport family to wait until the furore has died down and then resubmit demolition application especially likely to be granted by a complicit council especially if the buildings are allowed to get into a dangerous state of disrepair.

Yes, this has only happened because of the determination of the squatters. The pressure has to remain on Rapport.

Words fail me save for that there are not enough facepalms.

McDonald's fears for Norwegian church

Roald Dahl was christened there and it is as much a symbol of Wales' links to Norway as it is of the coal industry.

But a society's members are worried Cardiff Bay's Norwegian Church could be turned into a McDonald's or Starbucks, with its history lost.

Cardiff council is looking at ways to protect its heritage buildings.

While a spokesman said it would "preserve the integrity" of the church, it wants to realise its "undoubted commercial potential"....

I know nothing about Cardiff but a friend is after restaurant recommendations for an anniversary meal - any spring to mind?

"fairly nice but not break the bank nice", I doubt they want anything too daring - just nice food in a nice place

Food » The Potted Pig has been pretty good whenever I've been
bullysrestaurant.co.uk is good, but I'd personally like bigger portions
Cardiff – The Clink Charity is suposed to be excelent, but I've not been and don't like the idea of staff doing it for free
Asador 44 | Spanish Asador Restaurant Cardiff was a very good Spanish one when I last visited.

I'm veggie these days, so am generally a bit disapoint when I go out to dinner. I can normally do better at home at a fraction of the cost, but if they like meat their choices are substantially better.


There's loads of small Turkish and middle eastern ones popping up...

Troy Meze Bar – Meze Bar & Grill Cardiff and Lebanese Grill House, City Road, Home Delivery, Order Online | Lilo Grill House spring to mind

That Spanish place looks amazing! We'll probably do Cardiff again for New Year this year in our campervan - Barry Island NYD swim, fireworks on NYE, cycling around the bay and swimming in the International Pool. Lovely.

Fair play Spillers:

The oldest record store in the world just banned Morrissey

The oldest record store in the world just banned Morrissey
The oldest record store in the world has now banned all of Morrissey’s releases due to his controversial political beliefs.

As a result of Morrissey’s support of a right-wing extremist party, Spillers Records in Cardiff Wales made the decision to no longer carry his music....
