To raise some cash for essential improvements to the Embassy Cafe’s kitchen, Herbivore and Riverside Sourdough (the weekday Embassy Cafe people) are collaborating on a five course vegan supper club. All the staff are giving their time for free so that once we’ve covered the ingredients costs every penny can go into the improvements pot. Menu coming very soon – first course likely to be something straight out of the Riverside Sourdough bakery ovens and then two Herbivore courses and two from the amazing Chef Table Manners (who is at the Embassy stover Monday to Friday). This one will fill super-fast, so don’t sleep on it.
Well, the Herbivore058: All Over The Place supper club at the Embassy Cafe has sold out in a matter of hours – I didn’t even get as far as putting the details on this site. Look out for another date to be announced soon – something a bit different this time.
Meanwhile weekend business continues at the Embassy Cafe. Menu here.
Even on a grey New Year’s Day you can still spot the green shoots of life in the hedgerows (and walls) of Wales – this is Pennywort tasting fresh and succulent at Ogmore. Expect to see it on the next supper club menu. Date and details coming soon.
Herbivore now back in business at the Embassy Cafe Saturdays and Sundays 11 – 5.
Much as I hate the word, we will be honouring Veganuary at the Embassy Cafe. Not much change really as most of the weekend menus are fully vegan anyway but we’ll go the full Kevin for the rest of the month. This weekend’s menu here.
Our last weekend at the Embassy Cafe this year will be the 15th and 16th of December – and on Saturday 15th we’ll be closing at 4pm to get ready for a private party in the evening. Re-open on Saturday 5th January for normal business but also open on New Year’s Eve (bookings only).
Happy New Year to you all.
We’ve already started bookings for New Year’s Eve at the Embassy Cafe where we’ll be seeing out the old year with some plates of food inspired by the sunnier climes of the Mediterranean with some bright flavours and colours to drive away the winter gloom. It’s £30 per person with BYOB and no corkage charge. Full menu coming soon.
The last Herbivore Supper Club at the Embassy Cafe sold out in a matter of hours but luckily we still have spaces left for the two nights in the bigger venue of The Fig Tree in Penarth and have just posted up the menu for the next Cardiff date: Herbivore 056: Untitled 6th December at the Embassy Cafe. Details of both of these events can be found on the Supper Clubs page.
The Herbivore054: Fireworks supper club sold out in a couple of hours but luckily the next event will be in the grander venue of The Fig Tree restaurant, Penarth for two nights. We’ll be there on the 20th and 21st November and you can book a table at a time of your choosing by calling the restaurant on 029 2070 2512.
Now taking bookings for the next instalment in the supper club saga. Having had an event to mark Day of The Dead with a Mexican inspired feast for the past few years, we’ve decided to change it up this year and make something reflecting bonfire traditions, flames, smoke, the time of year and – yes – Mexican flavourings in at least one dish. Full info here.
Did you know that Herbivore vegan cakes are available all week long at the Embassy Cafe? As well as weekend treats you can buy them from Riverside Sourdough Monday to Friday. Seven days of cake. This one is an orange, almond and pear number and won’t be around for long as the pears are from my Pontypridd allotment and there aren’t very many of them this year. Grab it while you can.
