Hygiene horrors in Cardiff, Wales takeout restaurants

Bill Marler’s going to London, and if he gets to Wales, beware the Cardiff takeaway.

The South Wales Echo reports that cockroaches, dirt, poor personal hygiene and congealed fat are just some of the shocking  details uncovered in health inspector reports on kebab shops and chippies in Caroline Street.

Hundreds of hungry revellers regularly use the street, widely known as Chip Alley (below), after nights out on the town.

But the most recent kitchen hygiene inspection reports, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, show the street’s takeaways broke food safety regulations more than 70 times.
