Food in Wales

Posted on

Food is well known for being traditional especially Welsh Lamb and Beef in Wales but there are many more Welsh food cuisines which some people are not aware of.

Lamb is mostly associated with Wales and is usually accompanied with fresh mint sauce but it can also include seafood especially if you are close to the coast where fishing is part of daily life.

There are many restaurants and cafes throughout Wales serving traditional and non traditional food as well as many different cultures. Which ever part of Wales you visit we hope that you do try some of the home made dishes.​
