Hi. Cardiff is great for eating. Welsh specialities are Faggot and Peas which is a lamb meatball in gravy with mushy peas. Try it in the covered market in the centre. Cardiff however is an international city and has lots of Italian restaurants and Chinese. Try Gio's restaurant in the Hayes for good italian food. Don;t forget to visit the Castle right in the centre and take the escorted tour around the rooms. Also try the open top tour bus which will take you right down to Cardiff Bay with its resaurants and bars. The local Welsh beer is Brains. Try Brains SA, we call it Skull Attack. Have a great time

I remember consuming a great deal of Felinfoel (Feelin' foul was an apr description) - do they still sell the stuff around the city? Several years since I last visited.

Good news about the beefr festival. The man from Croatia will have an excellent time I am sure.

Faggots and peas are simply not a Welsh speciality, I'm afraid. Faggots originate in the West Midlands of England and are always made from pork offal, never lamb.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faggot_(food)

There are few traditional Welsh speciality foods, but you might look out for laverbread which is a seaweed usually fried in a pancake as part of an egg & bacon etc breakfast. And there is bara brith, a sort of sweet bread with currants served with butter and hot, sweet tea.

Welsh rarebit (cheese on toast with a little beer added) might be termed Welsh, although its origins are dubious.

Lobscouse is a type of beef stew, its name probably derived from the Norwegian 'lopskaus': http://www.celtnet.org.uk/recipes/cym/fetch-recipe.php?rid=lobscows

Caerphilly is the only truly traditional Welsh cheese.

Apart from these 'traditional' foods there are, of course, many excellent speciality foods in Wales...but they are not actually 'Welsh' as such.

As for Welsh beers, have a look at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_in_Wales

As everywhere in the UK, beers from the smaller breweries are usually better (imo anyway). Try as many different types as you can whilst you are in Cardiff.

Aside from all the great suggestions above there are also Welsh Cakes, kind of scones;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_cake

You'll be able to find them in most Welsh bakeries.

Found another dish that would go very well after a few beers, Clark's Pies originaly from Cardiff;

Meat, potato and pastry, what more do you want after a few pints of Braine's SA?

Travel Tips for Cardiff

Winter Wonderland

by Balam

During the Christmas period Cardiff has a great Winter Wonderland which consists of Christmas market type stalls and attractions like Ice Skating and a big Wheel. We had some roast Chestnuts and a very tasty Chilli Sausage. Although I passed on the Ice Skating as I did not want to show Vicki up with my skating prowess we went on the big wheel which was a bit of a disappointment as it was very cold and the Perspex windows of the capsule were steaming up. There was a good view though but I suggest going on it in the Day Time so you can see better.

Cardiff bay

by Carmela71

Cardiff Bay was before known as "Tiger Bay". In the last years it has been changing into a great area to live, eat or have business (and I have checked visiting every time I go to Wales)
It is the perfect place to find restaurants or for a walk.

I always try to go every time I go to Cardiff.

You'll Need a Warm Coat

by Goner

Love my suitcase on wheels. Worked great
on the long walks to and from the train station. It's pretty chilly late September, so if you're traveling in the fall, you will need a warm coat. You can buy anything you forgot in Cardiff. You might want to take or buy some 400 film for the overcast and rainy days.

Barry IslandLittle lovely...

by kingfisher

Barry Island
Little lovely town, only half hour away from Cardiff. You can go by train from Central Station. There is a beautiful beach and a mini playing ground.
Transportation: Train
From Cardiff to Barry Island
(Train timetable, check from railtrack website)

Castell Coch

by Carmela71

Coch Castle Just outside Cardiff is a great castle to visit. Specially if you go and find there Santa Claus and his wife ;-) as it happened to us

If you visit in Christmas time, there is a nice market.
