Sorry- you’re probably all very sick of our Welsh holiday by now.
Although we mostly ate in, we stumbled across a little gem in Aberystwyth one lunchtime- the deli Ultracomida. The deli had a wide range of products, mostly Spanish with French and Welsh thrown in for good measure, and with a tapas bar tucked away at the back of the shop.
Having had a mouthwatering look round, we decided that a stop for lunch was in order. In typical Spanish style we perched up at the counter. There were so many delicious options it was really difficult to narrow it down to one choice, but in the end I opted for a sandwich and Chris a panini. Both were really yummy, but Chris definitely made the right choice. Afterwards, we pretty much had to waddle back to the car the portions were so generous!
Before our food arrived, we were treated to some really fresh, crusty bread served with the most delicious olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I’ve never thought of an olive oil as being so amazing before, but this one really was. We were very tempted to bring a bottle home, but it was incredibly pricy and would probably have sat gathering dust on the worktop.
Whilst perusing the menu, we noticed that they also opened in the evenings so decided to book for later in the week. We had a range of different tapas dishes, the most expensive of which was a chicken thigh in a pepper an tomato sauce for £3.50. Most of the basic dishes were £1.50-£2.50, including some really good, slightly smoky Patatas Bravas. I’ll have to try and recreate those at home.
After such a great meal, it was impossible to leave empty-handed. We picked up some Spanish cider, a couple of bottles of wine and some cheeses. The cheese I chose was an amazing Ewe’s milk cheese wrapped in rosemary called Romero. Mmm.
As well as the shop in Aberystwyth, they also have another deli in Narberth and much of the wares are available to order from their website. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend a lunch or dinner stop. Oh, and the house Rose was pretty lovely too.
