Always on the lookout for a new restaurant in the Cardiff area - especially away from the Bay. Went to Milgi this week, out on City Road, behind the University. There is a real 'buzz' about the place and I'll be recommending it. Though I do have to admit its a bit 'young' for me. The main course was top quality. Milgi hasn't been open long and its run by two young women from Aberystwyth, who have brought some of the 'Welsh' ambiance of the Harbourmaster at Aberaeron with them to Cardiff. I recommend that my visitors give it a go.
Unusually, the local taxi driver who took us to Milgi was interested in politics - and seemed to have Conservative leanings. Didn't tell him who I was, but did ask how he thought the Tories were doing. "Doing well", he said "but I'd never vote for that Cameron fella because he wants to bring back hunting". I just slunk off like a wounded fox. Good job Milgi was so good.
