Food is well known for being traditional in Wales.
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 such as Gower Cockles or Conwy Mussels. A Welsh favourite is Laverbread, a food product made from an edible seaweed traditionally eaten fried with Bacon and served with Cockles which is a small type of Shellfish, this compliments a Welsh breakfast. There are many Restaurants, Bars, Pubs, Bistros, Brasseries and cafes throughout Wales serving traditional and non traditional dishes as well as many other different cultures such as Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese etc. Which ever part of Wales you visit we hope that you try and enjoy some of the local home made dishes as well.
If you are a connoisseur of wines and spirits and also craft beers you will not be disappointed when visiting Wales. There are many vineyard tours, along with the opportunity to visit and taste everything from Welsh wines, whiskey, gin, vodka and beers just make sure you aren’t driving of course. Indeed, the map of North, South and West Wales is dotted with establishments offering a warm welcome and an opportunity to sample and purchase their produce. At the last count, we totalled twenty breweries in North Wales alone, now isn’t that something to attract you to visit Wales on its own!!
