Then as following the introduction sorry to drop out a bit from green capital story but please listen for a while!

There are many good places to eat here in Bristol!

このグリーンキャピタルのお話からすこし脱線してブリストル市についてのお話です。

これまであまりご紹介してなったので、ちょとまずは市についてのお話を!

実はブリストル市にはいろいろな魅力がありますが、やっぱり切りーんキャピタルに選ばれてからは

 

スローフードブームがきています。

Among the many local restaurants that subscribe to the Slow Food movement, a few stand out. In a recycled warehouse on the waterfront, Bordeaux Quay boasts a sustainable approach to everything from ingredients to waste management. The food isn’t cheap (mains from £13.50), but it has a three-star rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association for its humanely raised meat, home-baked artisan bread and wild, day-boat fish. It has nice views of the harbour, too.

Another three-star restaurant is The Canteen in Stokes Croft, Bristol’s centre of alternative culture. It’s part of Hamilton House, a solar-powered, converted office building which houses a community of artists, musicians and charities and the Bristol Bike Project. Choose from a chalk-board menu – maybe beetroot and spinach gnocchi with garden-pea sauce (£8), or steamed Fowey mussels (£8.50). There is live music every night, 10% of profits go to local causes and you get a free bowl of soup with every meal.

Bristol is very good at homegrown micro chains. One of them, Friska – with four cafe-takeaways around the city – was recently named best ethical restaurant by Observer Food Monthly. Try one of its tasty hot boxes (Thai chicken curry or grilled halloumi with roast veg, £5.25).

The curse of takeaway waste is neatly taken care of by the Thali Café chain’s excellent tiffin scheme (tiffin dishes are really between-meal snacks, but can be eaten as mains). You buy a Mumbai-style stainless steel tiffin pot and make regular trips to your local Thali Café (there are four of them) for refills. Some 10,000 people in the city now have a Thali tiffin (dishes start at £8.95 and are served with rice and dahl). Menu highlights include Goan fish curry, Punjab kebabs and masala dosas, all inspired by Indian street food.

Finally, there’s the “junk food” option: Skipchen is a pop-up, pay-as-you-feel cafe in Stokes Croft that sources most of its ingredients from supermarket surplus. For a voluntary donation, you might try kiln-roasted salmon with watercress and white wine sauce. The food is on the cusp of a best-before date, but nobody’s died.
