On holiday in North Wales staying in the village of Blanaeu Ffestiniog. Wanted to use local shops so this is where we bought our bread. Beautifully home baked, just as we like it. Also sold the best Eccles cake I have had in a while.

Found this treasure quite by accident, Kurmang is such an interesting man, and his pasties quite delicious. Well worth a visit.

If you want something special ask Kurmang for his spicy Kurdish pasties. You will not regret it. If you have time ask Kurmang about his life story. He will be happy to talk for as long as you want. An unforgettable experience.

Popped in here to get some pasties. Never heard of it before and no expectations. The owner was really welcoming and a fascinating man. His Kurdish pasties were sublime. I especially liked the 'new' version with cauliflower and yoghurt.

Blaenau is rightly renowned for its walking, zip wire, caverns and heritage railway but right up there with those attractions is Mr Rashid's Kurdish bakery. Bread you'll be hard pushed to find on many British High Streets. Note: A take-out bakery not cafe.

We intended visiting and started by chatting with the owner in the doorway taking in the sunshine. Proceeding inside we got a description of his bread. Ate a good lunch on a bench almost opposite the rail station. Good fun and quality products found here.
