For me it's incredibly important to make the best out of the town I live in and to support local businesses.  I get the feeling that a lot of the time we get caught up in global food chains where every restaurant (regardless of it's host country) looks the same and everything tastes the same.  The philosophy behind Milgi is 'people doing small things to make Big things happen' and it's unique to Cardiff.

Milgi Lounge (213 City Road, Cardiff) is 100% vegetarian, and a few dishes are also vegan friendly.  I'm not a vegetarian (I could never give up bacon sorry!) but I love eating vegetables and locally grown produce.  Milgi try to cook as seasonally as possible and take their inspiration from food from all over the world.  Pretty much everything is made from scratch.  They host art evenings, live music and there's even a yurt in the back garden where 'supper and storytelling' is hosted once a month.  It's pretty much a hipster's dream.  If you're ever in Cardiff it's well worth a visit.

This place looks amazing and I wish there were more like this, it's really wonderful to see people supporting indie businesses, they always have to put more effort in to what they do.
