So we tried to go to see the new Beauty and the Beast film on the first day that it was released, the 17th of March 2017, but unfortunately it was sold out so we couldn't go and see it. We tried both of the cinemas in Cardiff but both were sold out. However, we did go on one of our many train journeys into Cardiff and was cheated in another way by having to pay £7 due to travelling at peak time.
But, it wasn't all a disaster. We went to a new restaurant which was recommended to us by a few people and found it was a pleasant change from our normal and reoccurring trip to Pizza Express as it is one of the only places where they serve vegan food as well as food for everyone else. For any vegans out there, or non-vegans, we highly recommend Zizzi's as it is suitable for everyone.
Zizzi's is an Italian restaurant which has classic Italian dishes as well as a separate dietary menu where it shows foods that are vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. The waitress who served us was endearing and often joked with us about her long day. It was a Friday which was a busy day in Cardiff as there was concerts as well as the new release Beauty and the Beast. We ordered a table in advance though when we got there we didn't know why we did as it was so quiet but as we sat down more and more people were coming in and we saw how busy it got. when we sat down we saw how nicely their tables were laid and thought the presentation was worth sharing with you.
One of us started with a vegan garlic bread (shown below) which was divine. In fact it was tried by all and all loved it even if they weren't vegan. It was well worth the price paid for it as there was a lot of bread to eat, we would highly recommend when getting this to buy it as a starter to share with everyone as you may be full before the main even arrives.
Another one of us had the melted mozzarella and pepper pesto chrocchettes (shown below), which were also marvelous.However, as you can see from the photo there wasn't a lot to this starter but the taste certainly made up for that and it was a nice if you wanted to treat yourself and not care about the price.
