FOOD AND DRINK TRENDS.
In the past year, the number of food and drink events on Eventbrite has increased by 43% compared to the previous year and some of the top trends include: Gin events: Cardiff is hosting a Gin Festival next month, where there will be talks from industry experts and more than 100 gins on offer. The event will be held at Portland House, Bute Street, from October 1 to 4. Unconventional food and drink pairings: Cardiff has become a haven for these events recently, with pop-up food experiences like Street Food Cardiff and Street Food Circus becoming increasingly popular. Last weekend, Wales' first ever fully independent craft beer and street food festival Brewfest was a massive success. Swapping breakfast and lunch for a Midday Munch: Cardiff is the perfect city for breakfast lovers and it boasts some of the best fry-ups in Wales. Some of the best places include Applejacks on Church Street, where brunch fans can take a seat in a VW camper van booth and choose from a breakfast platter, taco, stack or Hangtown Fry - omelette with bacon, oysters and spring onions. For a clean and guilt-free breakfast try Cafe Pure in Cardiff Bay. It offers a full English with sausage, lean bacon, a poached egg, vine tomatoes, spinach, avocado, mushrooms and wholemeal toast.
Vegan and vegetarian cuisine: These eateries are popping up all over the city, with the first 100% vegan restaurant Anna-Loka, opening last month. Based in Albany Road, it serves a full menu of vegan alternatives to classic dishes, including pulled pork sliders made with wheat gluten.
