A40, Junction Carmarthen; 1 minute
Vegetarian or vegan options
Blasus means ‘tasty’ in Welsh, which is the main mission of owners Paul and Delyth. Family-owned and run for over 10 years, it’s a Carmarthen institution. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and are often ready to tempt you with a taste of a magnificent wine or a slice of farmhouse cheese. The cheese counter is exceptional, with good raw-milk examples of Europe’s best, and there are lots of delicious Italian wines to accompany them.
Foodies will love the changing menu of takeaway baguettes (sweet chilli crayfish is a winner) with interesting, seasonal fillings. If you’re after food for a top picnic you’re sorted: chorizo sausage rolls, savoury tarts, charcuterie, antipasti and focaccia and finish with homemade frangipane tarts. And packaging is biodegradable so you can takeaway with a clear conscience. Carmarthen is a warren of narrow streets but the town’s St Peters car park is a short walk away.
