Not going to lie, as a fan of both cheese and toast, that cheese toast "Rarebit" looks pretty good.

It is. Done properly, it turns cheese on toast from a snack to a meal!

However, take my word on it...do not leave the country until you have tried Welsh Cakes. By some distance the second best thing to come out of Wales!

Welsh cakes are amazing. I'd also recommend sampling bara brith if you have the chance. Basically, fruit cake, made with tea (sort of).

Wales is the only place that does English fried breakfasts better than England, infact just think of anything in England and then times it by 10 and you got Welsh.

Also a fan of the variaty of curry sauce in fish and chip shops in Wales, chip shop, Chinese and Irish.

Welsh Dragon Sausages.

Lamb shank with creamy potatoes and mussy peas

Bread and gravy


Aside for what has already been mentioned I'm not sure Wales is really famous for its traditional food, but what it is famous for is its warm hospitality and friendly atmosphere. Top place to live and visit :D

For the best breakfast roll, you got to travel North from Cardiff over the Black mountains past the Story Arms. On route to Brecon on the right hand side in a layby as you come down the mountain you will find Paddys.

The Secrete Garden in Newport is pretty tasty too, and does litrally the best milkshakes ever! Much better than Five Guys in Cardiff and theres are good.

I heard 20Pheonix is a bit of a food guro and had some grest recommendations for me last time i asked.

Just had a little intel from my main man on the ground in Cardiff, he recommends the "Tuck in Cafe" on Cowbridge Road, just around the corner from the venue :orc:

And in the meantime, if you want to start practising your Welsh...just take all the vowels out of your words and double every other consonant. That'll see you right :wink:

No Starplayers for Stunty Teams? What are you afraid of?
In Porto they`ve been allowed, does Cardiff fear Deeproot?
We`re thinking about a stunty team for the Open, but without starplayers the fun factor is nearly less zero!

Terrified

We wanted things to be about the individual players rather than a star having a good day (or bad)

I’ll be using stunties for the first time in 2018 (not at the Euros as I’ll be busy) and I don’t see a limitation on stars as a barrier to fun with them
