Shopfitting began at the beginning of this year on the site of the former Roadhouse takeaway on Caroline Street that was closed down last August due to rent arrears. Initially I was not very interested to know what it was going to be, as it would likely be another fish & chip shop, however, a sign went up last Friday that has made me wonder if Iâ€™m wrong.
Fab Mash? Sounds like a great idea to me. I love mashed potato! If it is what I hope it is and they get the combinations right, eg. a selection of different gravies and sausages (perhaps even cheesy mash and pies?) Iâ€™m sure this could be one business venture that would take off, especially being sited where it is.
Since Wok to Walk took off with phenomenal success last year I no longer doubt that Cardiff is afraid to try new things and â€˜Fab Mashâ€™ could do very well. I live right next door, so, if they let me know when it is Iâ€™ll be there on opening day without a doubt!

The paper has come off the windows and the door is open. Looks great inside. I popped my head in and asked if they were open, but no joy. They are opening next week. Staff training today?

I have been contacted by Fab Mash! They have set up a Twitter ID and inform me that they are opening on March 1st.
