Little Bird’s consistently delicious food continues to amaze TeamMago. On our most recent visit we had excellent lamb tartar, the charcuterie board, and cedar plank halibut. Serious yummm.
Tapalaya in Portland’s NE has great food, a funky dining space, live music, a creative boozy drinks plus small well curated tap and wine lists. What’s not to like?
Newport, Pembrokeshire is certainly a pretty town and well worth a visit in its own right. But what we enjoyed most during our visit was using Newport as the starting point for another great hike along the Welsh Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
We’ve enjoyed everything about Jam on Hawthorne. The eggs were usually good and the Morningstar vegetarian sausage was a really pleasant surprise, as was the coffee which was especially good. Just like with Stepping Stone Cafe in NW, you’ll have a long wait if you go on the weekend for brunch. But during the week, there is plenty of seating at Jam on Hawthorne for breakfast.
Portland’s Ava Gene’s is a great place to enjoy Italo-PNW inspired cuisine on Portland’s premier restaurant row while the Eternal City sorts out its current crisis driven by the twin scourges of ubiquitous government corruption and metastasizing mass tourism. And in Portland you can dine a fuori without an infinite number of unpleasant encounters with flower sellers and accordion players.
We enjoyed our stay at the Cnapan Hotel and restaurant in Wales during our 2016 Grand Tour. Judy and Mike Cooper are superb hosts, while Judy is also the chef for Cnapan’s acclaimed restaurant. Sadly, they are no longer serving dinner on a regular basis. But Newport is a nice place to visit and the Cnapan is a nice place to stay while you’re there.
Our meal at The Golden Lion was one of the best pub experiences of the entire MagoGuide 2016 Grand Tour.
St. Davids is a holiday beach town located just inland of the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast Path. It has some interesting sites, markets, and restaurants. But one doesn’t need to spend more than a week here.
We voted this rental in St. Davids, Wales, one of the best ever. Rent from Matthew James for up to week of walking on one of the greatest coastal trails in the world.
We enjoyed Cwtch in St. Davids, Wales, but it didn’t meet our expectations. Service was good but harried. Portions were huge. Most dishes needed more seasoning.
