I like Barmouth. It is unpretentious and balanced between ugly parts and pretty parts, but after 8 p.m. there is not a lot of choice for dinner. At least the Chilli Spice, well lit and welcoming, had a few punters and a long and interesting menu.
A couple of items were "off" the menu that night, spicy poppadoms, our choice of wine, but the service was friendly and swift, and the food good. I'd recommend the Bangladeshi Fusion choices.
In a big centre with competition they'd have to make sure that they didn't run out of spicy poppadoms, but in this town, once the chippies close, you have a choice of one pretty but overpriced pub and an awful lot of empty pubs, and Chilli Spice should be treasured.
