Swansea is enjoying a growing reputation amongst foodies thanks to the efforts of a few creative individuals who’ve shown a real determination to improve the quality and range of food choices in the region.
Whether it’s the increasing quantity of chic boutique restaurants sourcing local ingredients, or innovative companies like Deliveroo providing easier access to top-class delicacies, it all gives us plenty of options until the return of the much-loved Big Swansea Food and Drink Festival!
There’s been a noticeable rise in small artisan food producers using the great markets in Morriston, the Marina, and the Uplands to show off their latest culinary innovations. So whether you want to pick up a quick wood-fired pizza courtesy of Popty Pizza, or check out the healthy and nutritious falafel treats from Taste of Persia, it all shows how we’re starting to enjoy more choice in Swansea than ever.
But it’s not just the range of options in the markets that have increased, as Deliveroo have helped many smaller businesses too by facilitating a delivery service that covers the whole of the Swansea area. This will mean that many of the best food outlets in Swansea can now allow people to sample their dishes from just the push of a smartphone button.
There looks to be an endlessly growing selection of new restaurants in Swansea to choose from. Whether it’s checking out the Caribbean delights of jerk chicken and salt fish at Jamaican Jill’s on Wind Street, or sampling French bistro classics like beef bourguignon at Bistrot Pierre on Oyster Wharf, it seems as though an entire world of food choices is coming to Swansea.
But as Swansea is a coastal city, you can also expect to find plenty of places that serve up some mouth-watering seafood treats.
The ever-so-chic Slice in Sketty offers a great selection of innovative cuisine that includes the likes of a beautiful roast brill and langoustine dish. And the delightful Hanson at the Chelsea is an award-winning restaurant that uses locally-served seafood to deliver a masterclass in how salmon, crab and haddock are typical Swansea delicacies that everyone should enjoy.
And finally no mention of Swansea’s food scene should miss out the magnificent Fairy Hill restaurant. Although it’s a fair trek out the city, the drive out to the hills not only provides a magnificent view, but also features some fantastic cuisine too!
