Today is my mother’s 71st Birthday and what better way to celebrate it than showing the meal we all ate last year!! I cannot believe it’s take me a year to talk about my mother’s birthday meal!! If I’m honest I cannot even remember what I ate, but I remember enjoying every mouthful!!
Every year the women of the Jones/Dixon family flock to Cardiff to celebrate my mothers birthday. The attendees include my lovely self, my mother (obviously), Auntie Cam, Auntie Marian, Auntie Sharon and Auntie Susan who travels all the way down from London to join us. Hopefully Auntie Gilly will join us this year but if not, and if you are reading this Auntie Gilly, girls day out soon? Please?
Last year we went to the Cardiff Millenium Centre to see Michael Ball perform in a play. All my aunties and my mother love Michael Ball, I think he’s their teenage crush. It’s gross. Before we attended the show we went to Domiroes which is a cabaret restaurant which is placed right opposite the Millenium Centre.
The food is great and affordable and the singing is second to none. The restaurant and become quite noisy so if you’re looking for a relaxing, quiet meal avoid this place at all cost. You have performers, singing waiters, there is a birthday every half an hour so be prepared to sing that on a loop throughout the night, and also be prepared for slightly tipsy gatherings such as Hen Nights and work Christmas meals.
Granted, these are not the best images I’ve ever taken but to be fair the lighting in the restaurant is complete and utter shit, unless you go in the day time. So if you’re a blogger like me and you want to do your own review, I would visit in the day time.
The food is absolutely delicious!! I can’t remember exactly what I ordered but I’m definitely ordering it again when I go there next (which, incidentally is tomorrow). The desserts are fantastic too!!
Think of this post as a glimpse of what you’re going to get soon. I’ll be writing a proper review of the food in a Visual Diary post which will be coming up in the next few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled.
