Marks & Spencer Cardiff Central Station Simply FoodCentral Square, Cardiff Central Station, Cardiff, Cardiff/Caerdydd, CF10 1EP
A small, but useful, food-only branch of this store. Quality is the name of the game here, and great effort goes into producing consistent products. Good salad leaves, pre-packed vegetables, fresh fruit and trimmed meat.
They are now very much geared to offering pre-packaged traiteur dishes, which simply need re-heating or a few minutes of basic cooking. Their varieties span the world, those from the Far-East, while good, are designed to be inoffensive so tend to hold the middle-ground in the flavour stakes.
However, the British and European-style dishes are of a standard not easily achieved in the average British household; and this makes many of them ideal for entertaining (or, if you can afford to, for everyday eating). Their excellent party nibbles, mean that you can have a party or barbecue at a moments notice and the range has to be commended.
They still produce the best chicken Kievs available; but, be careful not to buy the cheaper reformed meat version.
Perhaps their next efforts should be put into incorporating more free-range/organic/local products into their existing range.
