Feed Me - Hyst Coffee & Kitchen
Welcome to your monthly slice of #FoodHeaven: Feed Me.
Hello, hello fellow foodies. Welcome back to another delectable and edible edition of #FeedMe! The column where I - Christie Heaven - will be filling my face with the most mouthwatering treats that South Wales has to offer.
This month we encountered a #FeedMe first when we revisited a EmmaHeaven.com favourite and venue stalwart The Hyst, to experience their brand new Hyst Coffee & Kitchen, now home to delicious, homemade Greek food.
At the helm of this new venture are passionate, Greek chefs eager to unleash their scrumptious cuisine to the people of Swansea and beyond!
If you haven’t yet travelled to the beautiful country itself, you will definitely be transported there and treated to an authentic taste of Greece with the Hyst Coffee & Kitchen’s new menu.
Good luck deciding what dish to try! Will it be their Spanokopita, a traditional dish of crisp filo pastry bursting with salty feta and spinach? Or perhaps their homemade Moussaka, a Greek classic that boasts a luxurious combination of aubergine, potato, beef and creamy bechamel sauce? #nomnomnom
Don’t fret if you can only stop for a quick coffee, because the yumminess doesn’t stop there! Alongside their menu are a selection of sweet treats that you’ll have trouble finding in any other cafe. There’s the toasted, nutty, pastry deliciousness of their Baklava. And if pastry’s not your thing, there’s the unique, refreshing flavours of the Kitchen’s sponge cakes.
If you’ve a nutty palate, you must try the Karithopita - a light and luscious walnut cake, with a loose crumb which melts on the tongue - and the perfect accompaniment to a milky coffee.
If you’re more fruity with your tastes, try the Ravani - a semolina sponge sweetened with orange and clove syrup, with that recognisable Greek citrus flavour - this was a personal favourite, it’s lusciously moist and addictive.
***Public Service Announcement*** Any readers suffering from childhood semolina pudding flashbacks! Fret ye not! This sweet and enticing sponge will cure you from all your years of semolina hatred.
If this is all still Greek to you, then get yourselves along to the Hyst Coffee & Kitchen and try one if not all of these dishes for yourself at: 218 High St, Swansea SA1 1PE. Tel: 01792 654366
