Review: Shore Kitchen, Y Mwmbwls

Review: Shore Kitchen,
Y Mwmbwls

Shore Kitchen 6


After more travels in search of antiques and collectables, we decided to stop in Y Mwmbwls for lunch. After doing some research on Trip Advisor it appeared that 'Shore Kitchen' was a popular and well-regarded venue, and so we booked a table for lunch.

Y Mwmbwls is a lovely little town, more a large village really, with lots of independent shops and a walk along the sea front always gives one a healthy appetite.

Shore Kitchen is at the farthest end of the main drag of Y Mwmbwls, but is easily found.

We had booked ahead, as Y Mwmbwls is very popular and busy at lunchtimes during the summer, especially with families. We were delighted to find a modern, clean and well-presented restaurant, with huge windows which looked out on to the street (perfect for people watching) and to Swansea Bay, beyond a small green.

Service was friendly, efficient and swift. Menus were brought over within a reasonable time and drinks orders taken and brought over promptly.

For starters I had roasted mushrooms on bruschetta, with a perfectly poached egg on the top, dramatically presented with a swirl of balsamic syrup. My partner had calamari. Both were freshly cooked and very tasty.

For main course I had a handmade beef burger and my partner had an aubergine and tomato dish, both delicious and sufficient in portion size.

Two courses, including accompanying drinks, came to £50.00, which we thought was a pretty good deal.

The menu is simple, not over-elaborate. But all the food we had was well cooked and full of flavour. It was no surprise to learn that the chef (and owner) of Shore Kitchen had been Head Chef at The Dragon Hotel, Swansea and had also worked at Morgan's Hotel, Swansea. Both have very good reputations. If you're in the area, pop in for lunch. Or even make a special trip for dinner and enjoy the lights around the bay as you enjoy their delicious food.
