The Cardiff independent restaurant scene just keeps on giving, and Asador 44 is one of the latest places to to showcase Spanish cuisine at it's best.
Brothers and Spanish food aficionados Owen and Tom Morgan have started work on this new Northern Spanish restaurant, found on Quay Street, Cardiff. Asador 44 will be the first restaurant of its kind in Wales, introducing a style of communal Spanish dining not experienced here before.
The food be handpicked from some of the greatest producers in both Wales and Spain. Asador 44 will also provide an inclusive dining experience, an in-house sommelier and a cheese cave.The Asador experience, originating from Northern Spain, has influenced Hispanic food culture around the world and consists of chargrilling the finest meat, fish and vegetables over charcoal and wood. Control of heat and distance from the coals provides perfect slow cooking for succulent food.
Owen explained, “We want to offer something new and of the utmost authenticity, showcasing all that we know about Spanish food and culture... We’ve had the grill handmade by The Clay Oven Company who specialise in bespoke designs for some of the world’s best restaurants and our ingredients will come from fantastic Spanish producers (...) We’ve been hand picking all of the small detail such as crockery, cutlery and glassware to make this a first and one off for Cardiff.”
