Last Friday was my 32nd birthday (as you know if you caught last Friday’s post), and was one of those lovely crisp Autumn days (exactly the same as the day I was born according to my Mum and Dad when they regaled everyone with my birth story over dinner at the pub… thanks guys!), and started off – as most days do these days – with taking Bungle for a walk. But instead of doing the usual stomp around the block, we hopped into the car and drove to Cosmeston, which was absolutely stunning in the morning Autumn sunshine. 🙂
It was a quiet one, but lovely all the same. I opened presents, blew out candles and got stuck into a massive cinnamon bun, and then went to the pub for dinner with my family.
On Saturday I was invited down to Milgi on City Road to try out their breakfast menu. As a restaurant that promotes themselves as being dedicated to “everyday plant-based eating”, this cheeky McDonalds, sticky cinnamon bun-scoffing gal wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But I’d heard really good things, was excited to give it a try and you know what? I loved every single bite and was stuffed by the time we left!
I had to try the Lavabread-fried Potatoes, complete with polenta toast, a fried egg and homemade ketchup. It was absolutely massive, and even Sunny was surprised when I demolished the lot. I also really enjoyed my cheeky Toffee Apple Collins and honestly was a little bit buzzed in the car on the way home (…which made getting stuck in match day traffic through Cardiff a bit more bearable!).
Sunny went for their Indian Breakfast which came with two massive Parantha and a hefty portion of Dal. I couldn’t resist sneaking a bit of his Parantha – you guys know I cook a batch myself when the in-laws come to stay. He went for their Autumn Garden Smoothie, with pear, banana, oats, cinnamon, vanilla and oat milk and I think even he was surprised how much he loved it.
If you’re looking for somewhere new for breakfast definitely give Milgi a try; I’m pretty sure a Saturday morning breakfast there could cure any hangover – not only are the portions massive, but the food’s tasty and pretty easy on the eyes too. They serve breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am until midday. 😉
Happy weekend everyone! x
