Why do drinkers love Bekre Meze?

Bekre Meze is by far the most popular thing on my menu. While it’s not a particularly famous dish in Greece (I can’t ever remember seeing it on a menu!) Bekre Meze is “Blaenau famous” from back in the 90s when my parents had “The Firefly” Greek restaurant on the High Street. For those of you that haven’t already tried it, “our” Bekre Meze is a beef stew, with mushrooms and peppers in red wine, finished off with melted cheese. But in Greece, the dish can be made with veal, por

5 top tips with ouzo

I’m sure I’m not the only one with a dusty bottle of ouzo at the back of the drinks cabinet, and this far into lockdown things are starting to get a bit desperate. The problem is, ouzo doesn’t taste quite the same once your tan has faded and the only fish meze you can get your hands from is from the local chippy. So how can you make the most of that forgotten bottle without yearning for sandy beaches and little blue and white tavernas on the Aegean sea? Well that may be impos

Gluten Free Options

At Caffi Kiki we’re committed to making sure people with dietary requirements can have the same experience and enjoy a meal out without worrying about allergens or being constricted to the same unimaginative options. For this reason, we’ve made sure that every option on our main meals menu can be tweaked to provide a gluten free option, with gf bread, wraps, pitta breads, sausages, hash browns and fries. We also keep a completely gluten free fryer, so if you have a severe glu

Exploring your options: Something for everybody at the cafe

While this summer has been a bit of a washout, I’ve loved being able to take a little bit of time to update the blog, and as promised, to write a little bit more about what we do at the cafe. I hear lots of people saying, “oh yeah you do all that healthy stuff in the cafe” and while I really wish that crispy chicken and skinny fries were in fact healthy, I feel obliged to clear a few things up: What we do at the cafe is offer plenty of healthier “options,” we have lots of cus

Breakfast at Kiki’s

Breakfast at the cafe is an all-day event, with something to suit all tastes and levels of activity. Power yourself up for a day in the mountains with the Moelwyn Mawr or Moelwyn Bach full breakfast, which include Gourmet Welsh sausages, bacon, hash browns, poached eggs, grilled mushrooms and tomatoes, baked beans, and your choice of white, brown or seeded toast. “The mountains are calling and I must go.” We try to keep this “naughty option” as guilt free as possible by grill

Kiki’s Cafe 2.0

The closest I’ll be getting to Bali anytime soon… Yeah that’s right. I’ve given up my life of zero ties and minimal responsibilities and decided to do a grown-up thing. I’m still not entirely sure why, but one day in Verbier I heard about this opportunity and I could just picture everything falling into place. Go home, have a purpose. Have a wardrobe. And a bedroom. And more than a backpack full of possessions. The more I thought about it, the more it seemed to make sense. I
