Blas in Autumn - Made in Roath 2016
Where: Mackintosh Sports & Social Club, Keppoch St, CF24 3JW
When: Saturday 15 October from 4:30pm

Roath’s favourite street food festival is back to delight local foodies this weekend. Blas, from Cardiff’s Farmer’s Markets, returns with some familiar and new faces to the Mackintosh Centre on Keppoch Street. Part of this year’s Made in Roath, Blas will start at 4.30pm and continue until 9.30pm on Saturday. Confirmed street food vendors include:

Babita’s Spice Deli
A unique range of vegan, vegetarian and non- vegetarian choices. All of their recipes are authentic home cooked dishes using locally sourced produce where possible. They aim to recreate the vibrant colours, aromas and tingling sensations that can only be found on the street-side dabba’s (cafes) of North India.

Mr Croquewich
Belly warming grilled cheese favourites with their own hashtag #cheesedreams. Expect some scrummy fillings on offer.

Bwydiful
Gourmet hand crafted Welsh steak burgers, hand-made to order and served in freshly baked sourdough rolls. Lush!

Penylan Pantry
Penylan Pantry will be serving hot falafel dawgs, served with pickled red onions, corriander, chiplotle, and tahini sauce. There will be a Vegan option, a cheesy veggie option and a Chilli beef meaty option.

Green City Events & Lia’s Kitchen
Lia will be designing a delicious menu of delights, all created from food donations from retailers that otherwise would have been wasted. The exact menu will be a complete surprise but expect Greek flavours and a whole platter of treats made from food that we commonly waste at home. Their stall celebrates World Food Day and is supported by Love Food Hate Waste. They will also be giving away FREE tools and resources that can help you reduce food waste at home.

Cup and Cake Bakery
Cronuts, cupcakes, whoopee pies, caramel shortbread…. The totally popular Cup & Cake Bakery. You do eat with your eyes first with these!

El Chilango
Will be cooking up Fish and Veggie tacos!

Ele’s Little Kitchen
Home style cooked Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine with paellas and tapas. We’ve heard there will be chicken paella and seafood paella on offer plus some “ponchos”.

Dusty Knuckle Pizza
One of Cardiff’s homegrown food pop-ups serves wood-fired pizzas. Expect some exciting topping selections to choose from, most of which are locally sourced.

Handlebar Barista-Brew Bar will be there serving coffees.

Tomos a Lilford & Roath Brewery real ales will be available from the bar inside the Mack too.
