On Monday evening I was lucky to be invited by Cathryn from Cardiffmummysays to Five guys, down in the Red Dragon Centre, Cardiff Bay.
I had heard a few good things about here for the gluten free burgers, you just leave the bun off, and the chips are also gluten free, so it was an offer I couldn’t turn down. It also gave me chance to meet with some other local bloggers. I had met a few at the Christmas event last year. So was nice to catch up. It’s mad that I’ve been chatting away to this group on Facebook, re tweeting tweets and liking Instagram pictures, so feels like you already know someone.
Here we all are! Jess, Sally, Me, Laura, Cathryn Kelly, Alina, Kerry, Sarah, Alana and Photo credit goes to Deborah.
My photo really doesn’t do the food justice, as it was lovely! I went for the bacon cheeseburger with onions, mushrooms and mayo, and it didn’t touch the sides!
I was impressed with the prices, coming from the valleys down to the bay, we always say how expensive it is, but five guys was good value for money.
The burgers are double burgers, and the little cheeseburger is one burger. So as I wasn’t having the bun I could treat myself to the two! This was around £8 but with unlimited toppings to chose from was well worth £8! We ordered fries for the table to share, the large fries are £5 but this feeds around 4 people. I know I could go here as a family, spend around £25 and be well fed! Yes, I’m going back, I’m going to try Z one day.
We ordered our food and it was all cooked to order so took around 10-15 minutes, so very quickly, most of the girls had milkshakes, and I Must admit they looked lush! Well except Sarah who had bacon in hers. Yes, I couldn’t quite get to grips with drinking bacon bits! The soft drinks are refillable, so I got the chance to taste so many fantas, grape, cherry and strawberry!
After we finished our food we all sat around laughing and chatting away like we had all known each other for ever. I can’t wait for the next time we all get to meet up again!
I’ve left a list of who the girls are if you want to pop on over and take a look at who has helped me loads this last few months, and yes Deborah is Mrs Fd! When I told my mates I was going out, the following morning I had a text asking so was Mrs FD there!
