10 Photos Proving Welsh Food Rocks

It is a dual achievement: The British Empire was the empire upon which the sun never set, and which never came across a cuisine it could not destroy entirely.

The halls of Westminster Abbey? I’m there! The… “proportions” of the Giant of Cerne Abbas? I will gladly make the trek! The non-stop nightlife of London’s club scene? But of course! The menu?

Meh.

But it seems that Wales, that oft-overlooked corner of the kingdom, seems to have got its head around the fact that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. And here is proof:

OK, this technically isn’t an eatery, but still a member of the club: I’m at the Swansea Indoor Market, where the food is right off the boat. Waa-waaaah.
