Hogwurst, Cardiff's specialist bricks-and-mortar hot dog joint, is all about the relaxed vibe. Popping with colour and resonating to the sound of proper playlists and mouth-half-full chatter, it's a place to kick back, enjoy heartily made grub and soak in the youthful ambience of an area sited smack-bang between Cardiff's vibrant student quarter and the eastern edge of the beautiful Blackweir Fields.
Undoubtedly one of Cardiff's most popular day-time student eateries, evenings see young professionals and all manner of folk with an Americana appetite slurping on incomparably thick milkshakes and tackling some devilishly designed dogs. Hogwurst's dogs, by the way, are all packed with high-grade-super-pork from Native Gloucester Breeds reared on small farms (no cheapo mystery meat here!), all slathered in generous amounts of toppings and all arranged on top of brioche buns from the local baker extraordinaire at Allen's - thus guaranteeing that each porky creation is as mouthwatering as the last.
Oh - and it's BYOB too (in case it wasn't already awesome enough for you). Look out in particular for Hogwurst's desserts, which are a real strength and - like everything here - all freshly made in-house.
