I’m amazed that there are still people in Cardiff who have never been to Milgi’s in Roath.
If this was a non-veggie restaurant, I genuinely don’t think that would be the case. I know that the whole ‘no meat’ thing puts some people off. That, and the idea that Milgi might be just ‘too hipster’ whatever that means. Well, I’m here to plead their case yet again, as despite the fact that we’ve had loads of exciting new places opening up in Cardiff over the last few months, this is still my favourite place to eat. I just love the vibe and the ethos of the place, even more-so because it’s on one of the, er, grottier streets of Roath, Cardiff – better known for it’s dodgy kebab houses than it’s ethical, sustainable little arty cafe bars.
One of the main reasons why I keep going back to Milgi’s, is because they pride themselves on updating their menu every time the seasons change, as well as creating a different curry dish every week – meaning there is always something I haven’t tried. Couple this with the fact that they’re shortlisted in the Observer Food Monthly Awards practically every year, use organic ingredients in everything from their coffees and cocktails to their curries, and you can see why in my opinion, everyone should have eaten at Milgi’s, at least once!
The other reason I keep finding myself back at Milgi’s door is their damn Instagram feed. Each time I see one of their beautifully shot pictures of the next new dish, I find myself powerless to resist.
There is now also an off-shoot from the main restaurant based inside Cardiff’s indoor market. Selling awesome, filling ‘wholefood bowls’ as well as salads, wraps and vegan cakes.
In short, if you still haven’t been to Milgi’s yet, just what exactly are you waiting for?
