Much has changed in the Cardiff food scene in 2018, with many well-known and highly-regarded restaurants closing down (like Arbennig and Fish at 85). But the food scene in the capital remains as impressive and diverse as ever. There's everything from tapas, Lebanese and Thai to Japanese, vegan and barbecue. And there's plenty of classic Welsh cooking too. You can eat in a prison, a classroom or a cosy neighbourhood Italian. From private dining in oak-panelled rooms to shawarma and street food (via plenty of pizza), these are our picks of the best restaurants in Cardiff in 2018. The restaurants are listed in no particular order. 1. The Classroom This remarkable restaurant is staffed by those honing their culinary and service skills at Cardiff and Vale College.

Twitter is a brilliant tool for journalists. It's full of food folk for one thing, and we're a nice bunch that tends to stay away from politics for the most part so things rarely get heated. And food people are generous souls, who love to pass on their discoveries and recommendations. We share a common ambition that no opportunity for a good meal should ever be wasted. Every time that I'm heading to a town or city that I'm not very familiar with, I ask Twitter to suggest places to eat - restaurants that may have opened since the last time that I was there, or may simply have slipped under my radar. And Twitter almost always delivers. Galway has plenty of good restaurants - Aniar, Loam, Ard Bia and Kai being amongst the best known - and Wa Café is another great spot that you should investigate if you have an appetite for Japanese food, particularly sushi made with excellent fresh fish supplied by Stephane Griesbach of Gannet Fishmongers.

One is that I'm part of an awesome Zurich vegetable cooperative which means spending 20 hours a year working alongside our professional gardeners in return for a weekly basket of freshly harvested vegetables. All our vegetables are grown in Zurich, which means during winter it's either stored vegetables that were harvested in autumn or the few things that grow on Zurich soil in winter. Another reason why I'm not buying any summer vegetables such as courgettes, tomatoes and aubergines in … [Read more...] about How to make the most of Swiss spring vegetables
