How greasy spoon cafe got into the Good Food Guide

A greasy spoon cafe on a caravan site in Wales has changed its menu and made it one of the best places to eat in Britain.

It all started with a £3 pound, all day breakfast. But now The Marram Grass Cafe, housed in an old potting shed with a tin roof is a new entry in the 2016 Good Food Guide.

Carole Green went to take a look at what's on the menu:


Chinese takeaway fined for the egg in the fried rice

A Chinese takeaway has been ordered to pay over £1,000 after inspectors found egg in the fried rice on three occasions.

A menu for fried rice.

Carmarthenshire County inspectors visited the takeaway in Llandybie on a routine food sampling call.

A portion of special fried rice without egg was ordered but was found to have a high level of egg "contamination".

The company was given guidance and told there would be a follow up call. When visited again three portions of house special fried rice with no egg were ordered.

The dish again had egg in it - at three times the level of the previous visit.

It is vital that customers with allergies can be confident that the food they are served is safe for them.

We will prosecute when food outlets do not take sufficient care to avoid cross contamination.

– Cllr Jim Jones

The takeaway owners - Ahmed Cuisine entered a guilty plea and was fined £500 and ordered to pay costs of £603 and a victim surcharge of £50.
