After a hearty and filling lunch at Happy Gathering, we continue to bring kw to visit Cardiff. Since our friend was interested to visit Cardiff Castle, we all went in for a visit.
Even though we have been staying in Cardiff for quite some time, we have not enter the Castle before, the reason being that the admission fees were a little pricey. The essential ticket was priced at £8.95 for adults and £7.50 for students while the premium tour ticket was priced at £11.95 for adults and £9.95 for students. The photo above is the Clock Tower of Cardiff Castle.
This is the small dining room which was used as a dining room for members of the Bute family when there were few or no guests. Overall, we think that the trip to Cardiff Castle was educational and quite worth the price paid. More information about the Castle can be found here.
For dinner, we visited Prezzo for Italian cuisine. The reason for our visit was because we had a voucher offering 2 for 1 on main meals, which means we would get a free main meal by getting one main meal. We have not heard about studentbeans.com until Christine told us about it, thanks a lot for the information!
Since there were 3 of us, we ordered 3 main courses to share. Kw ordered a risotto mediterraneo for £9.75. In this classic Italian rice dish, tiger prawns and rice were cooked in creamy saffron sauce. The sauce was light and creamy, the prawns were fresh and crunchy too. However, we find the rice a little too hard to our liking.
Ys chose a vesuvio pizza topped with double pepperoni sausage, red chili, mozzarella and tomato. Priced at £8.75, we find this freshly baked pizza in traditional oven really good. We love taste of the crispy thin base of the pizza which is slightly burnt. The cheese was tasty and not too overwhelming, simply delicious!
The il carltoni calzone stuffed with pepperoni sausage, seasoned chicken, pancetta bacon, roasted peppers, pomodoro sauce and cheese tasted fantastic too! Priced at £9.25, this folded pizza which was also baked in their traditional oven was served with pomodoro sauce and side salad. The bread was dense and nice, the fillings were juicy and cheesy and the sour pomodoro sauce enhanced the taste of it. Every bite was sensational. A highly recommended order!
Since we still have rooms in our stomachs to spare, we decided to have a dessert to share. We had a sticky toffee pudding for £4.50. The traditional sponge pudding was served with hot butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice-cream. Though the sponge pudding was sweet, the vanilla ice-cream toned down the sweetness of it. The meeting of the warmth of the pudding and the iciness of the ice-cream was delicious, love it.
We had a scrumptious dinner in Prezzo. Though there were limited number of staffs in the restaurant, service was good and speedy. For more information, do click on their official website here. We would definitely be going back for more delicious stone-baked food!
