Baravin, Aberystwyth

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda bawb!  Gobeithio eich bod chi gyd wedi addasu bellach i fwyniannau mis Ionawr, a neb ohonoch wedi penderfynu dilyn y tueddiad hollol hurt a masocistaidd o ddechrau detox yn ystod mis creulona’r flwyddyn.

Fydda i am un byth yn  llwyrymwrthod ag unrhywbeth adeg yma’r flwyddyn, ond mae’n deg i ddweud y bydda i’n cerdded a nofio bach yn fwy rheolaidd ar ôl gloddest y Nadolig, er mwyn parhau i fwynhau bwyd blasus a gwin da.

A sôn am fwyd blasus a gwin da, beth laniodd ar fy stepen drws echddoe ond copi diweddara cylchgrawn Red Handed Magazine, y byddaf yn cyfrannu adolygiadau bwytai iddo bob tymor. Yn y cylchgrawn cyfredol, fe welwch chi ddau adolygiad gen i, a dwi am gyhoeddi’r cyntaf, isod.

Gan mai cylchgrawn i ddynion yn ne Cymru yn bennaf yw Red Handed Magazine, mae’r bwytai yn tueddu i fod wedi’u lleoli yn ne Cymru hefyd. Ond wedi i mi glywed sibrydion o’r Canolbarth am fwyty newydd sbon o safon, ymbiliais ar y golygydd i mi gael mynd ar bererindod i Baravin, a hynny tra roeddwn i fyny yn Aberystwyth ar gyfer Gwyl Ffilmiau Arswydd Abertoir ym mis Tachwedd.

Rwy’n falch iawn i ddweud i Paul dderbyn fy nadl fod gan nifer o loddestwyr yn ne Cymru gar neu docyn trên, ac o bryd iw gilydd yn profi’r awch am ddihangfa dros dro, felly ces brofi’r bwyty bendigedig hwn drosta i fy hun.

Fy nghyngor yn syml parthed Baravin? Darllenwch, archebwch fwrdd, a mwyhewch!

Review: Baravin, Aberystwyth- Red Handed Magazine, Winter 2012/13

There is a grand tradition in Aberystwyth, upon parading the prom, of  ‘kicking the bar’ at the bottom of Constitution Hill. However, the next time you fancy a bracing walk in the seaside town, how about hitting Baravin?

The latest addition to the Mid-Wales gastro scene has been making waves ever since it opened last summer. The sister cafe bar of Aberaeron’s Harbourmaster hotel is situated in the spruced-up Old King’s Hall that was given an industrial-chic makeover with the added pizzazz of Malcolm Gwyon’s pop-art paintings of legendary Welsh pop icons.

The name, Baravin, is composed from the Welsh word for bread and the French word for wine, which tells you all you need to know about the simple, down-home philosophy at the heart of this savvy Ceredigion eatery.

The place is run with an easy, laid-back charm by Harbourmaster alumni Gareth Evans and Owen Williams and has both a mighty menu and a panorama of Cardigan Bay to boot.

Our meal began with a majestic mojito, followed by a stunning starter of crevettes in garlic and herb butter.

The mains that followed were executed in style, and made fine use of local butcher Rob Rattray’s excellent produce. The 8oz Rib eye steak, perfectly cooked and served with rosemary potatoes, green beans and a chilli and coriander butter, was paired with a delicious glass of the Gran Dominio Rioja Crianza, whilst the stonebaked pizza with Welsh lamb sausage, minted peas, Serrano ham and mozzarella was worth the trip alone.

To finish, a delectable chocolate brownie sundae that left us gagging for a Cardiff outpost.

Certainly, Baravin’s recent fame is Aberystwyth’s gain, and is worth undertaking a foodie odyssey for.
