PLEASE NOTE THIS RESTAURANT HAS NOW CLOSED.
Although I’ve worked in Cardiff for the past two years, I am a newbie resident, so it’s only now that my eyes are being opened to all of the wonderful restaurant gems outside of the city centre. And boy have I moved to the right place! Canton really is a fab place for food – the list of places I want to try is as long as my arm.
On this occasion my excuse to eat out was a visit from mum and grandma and after a menu pre-screening I thought Duck Egg Bleu (aka The Lazy Duck) was a suitable option.
It might have been dark enough inside for a sexy first date, but what I loved was that the food had its own flare – delicious classics with a Duck Egg Bleu stamp on them.
I came away with a new found love for their tangy, lemony baba ganoush, buttery colcannon and Guinness ice cream.
