can;t speak for the canton one but the roath one is awesome. consistently good, fresh food, super-quick and delicious.

although i have no idea what vegi (non fish) stuff they do tbf.

fucking "tucker" a "cafe" on Salisbury rd DO NOT do vegi breakfast and only seemed to have 2 vegi options anyway
and they stop breakfast at 12! in a student area! wtf!! :confused:
and the woman in there was well condescending and looked down on me after she said "we haven't had the need for it" and i replied "well people won't come in if you don't offer it" to which she sarkily said "well it's interesting to hear your views"
knobbers, hope they go under with that attitude
same as it looks nice in there!

then went to cafe 37 a few doors up who do a decent big vegi breakfast and allow you to swap items! and had done either 15 or 50 (my hearing) vegi breakfasts that day alone! this place was rammed and "tucker" had about 3/4 toffs in it.

why would you not offer a wider range?!? :confused:

Went to Casanova on quay street in town last night. Twas lush, and at 2 courses for 18 quid a bargain. It's not your usual Italian, no long list of the standard pastas and pizzas. It's a fairly small set menu but everything is homemade and what we had was really lovely. Antipasto to start, for main Mrs p had Pork three ways and I had ragu with slow cooked hunks of beef and pork. It's been there for ages but have never eaten there before now. Will def be going back.

Had breakfast in 6 flavours today. Very good Indian stuff, all the breakfast menu just 'happens' to be vegetarian. Between all of us we had a few different dosas, idlis, potato masala, etc. Very good. And cheap! You can have a dosa for £2.50!

reminded me :) lilo on city road does take-out/delivery (never realised before) - good, fresh, cheap lebanese food (plenty of veggie options ;)) plus chips/pizzas to keep the kids/grandparents happy, main courses w/rice+bread+salad+sauce feed 2 adults. they also do awesome juices/smoothies/milkshakes to take out :cool:

missus went to icookthai on Crwys rd last night and came back with tales of amazing food and a one man show of owner/chef/story teller/pianist/singer/psychic and acupressure madness!
very small place with a few tiny tables so you have to book
apparently he teaches Thai cooking and knows vegi's don't have fish sauce!
i will warn you that they were there for about 3hrs :eek:

Had a nice takeaway from the Vietnamese on cowbridge rd last night. Bit more pricey than your usual takeaway but the portions are generous and the food is lush. Hope they do ok, been a bit quiet the last few times I've been to pick up food.

I feel more sorry for the Chinese buffet place across the road from them. I pass it most days at all sorts of times and I've only ever seen two people in there. They were in there at the same time.

The staff are always looking out the window at you hopefully. One day...
 
i had my first taste of lilos this week and i bloody love it. ordered a delivery and £20 bought me shit loads of excellent food. i shant be ordering delivery from anywhere but lilos for the foreseeable future.
great grub.

Can anyone be a darl and recommend somewhere decent on City Rd for a last minute date tonight? Anywhere with decent food that wont be dead. Cheers big ears!

If not City Rd then anywhere in town would be good too. :)

i ate all your bees
tenkaichi for sushi/noodles.
milgi more for buzz and drinks, but their food's edible iirc (all vegi, also iirc)
cn/82 for chinese (82 has a mix of authentic and uk standard dishes, cn doesn't do the standard stuff)
mirchi for curry
lilo for lebanese/middle eastern (no alcohol licence iirc)

all the above are decent to very decent in my recent experience tho we take out rather than eat-in.

we've recently jumped ships for curry from mirchi to masala express on broadway, they really are very very good :thumbs:

I went to Red Hot World Buffet on Tuesday... wide selection, not kidding when they say hot. Mostly good standard, though I think I'd have enjoyed it more if I'd decided to pick a few things to eat, rather than sample everything! Just round the corner from the cinema, which was handy before going to see Life of Pi.
