Bristol is strewn with hidden gems. Small food businesses founded by talented folks are popping up here, there and everywhere, and it can be hard to keep up (though we do have fun trying!)
Creative chefs take up residence in pub kitchens, temporary spaces, markets (that's a whole post in its own right!) - but here are some places that have been around for a while, delivering excellent eats to loyal customers.
This tiny Indian takeaway in Montpelier stole the heart of tBFT co-founder Jo when she moved to the area 4 years ago. They serve up fresh and super tasty curries at fab prices, and have an entirely vegan menu to boot. Highlights are bindi curry (okra), gobi bhaji and the ever-satisfying saag bhaji.
Simple and delicious Italian food that Nonna would be proud of! Crunchy farinata (a kind of chickpea flour pancake) stuffed with home made sauerkraut, perfectly crispy on the outside and soft in the middle focaccia filled with Bath soft cheese, pine nuts, zesty and savoury tapenade and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and cracked black pepper... And to finish? A portion of fresh tiramisu with a shot of espresso. La dolce vita!
This little cafe near Portland Square is just lovely. At the helm is ( ) who champions creatives of all sorts and makes them delicious things on toast, is the creator of the best vegan waffles in the city and uses beans roasted by Triple Co Roastery for their coffee.
