We're all reeling from the events of the past week, but few more so than Dublin’s hospitality industry which has seen unprecedented closures and layoffs. While front-line medical staff will continue to be the heroes of this pandemic, some Dublin restaurant owners and s...

19 Mar 2020

It's been the strangest week most of us have ever known. We've watched the restaurants we love evaporate, the majority of hospitality staff in the city (and country) let go, and chances are you yourself have been affected whatever industry you work in. We know painters...

Another week, another opening, and they seem to be getting more inventive by the month. Here's what's appeared over the last few weeks...

Kakilang


Dublin has a new place for bubble tea and it's already out the door. Kakilang has opened on Batchelor's Walk serving Taiwan...

Not even the Coronavirus can slow down Dublin openings, and these are three we're particularly looking forward to visiting once the doors are open.

Fasta Pasta

As if getting one pasta bar where every dish is under a tenner wasn't exciting enough, now there's another one...

There’s nothing to be alarmed about. Everything is perfectly fine and there’s zero happening in the world that should make you feel in any way anxious or scared, no sirree. But on the off chance you are feeling a little delicate and in need of some comfort, cookies mak...

For a while there we almost thought Sunday Roasts were going to be the new Brunch but nope, the weekend staple reigns supreme in Dublin. In the 11 months since we created our original 'Ultimate Guide to Brunch', a lot has changed - new openings, new menus, and new oppo...

As part of our research in to where to eat the best pancakes on Pancake Tuesday, I took one for the team and headed to Laine My Love for their salted caramel and Nutella special. They were really good, and the only problem is having to wait a year for the next opportun...

Residential tenants aren't the only ones being affected by the soaring prices in Dublin, budding restaurateurs are also having a tough time finding an affordable forever home. Enter, the pop-up, the obvious choice for the commercially savvy restaurateur looking to ease...

In the Irish Examiner this week Leslie Williams is first in with his take on Amy Austin, the new wine bar from John Farrell (777, Dillinger's, formerly Luna), with 777's Essa Fakhry in the kitchen. He doesn't touch on the somewhat controversial closing of Luna (will be...

It's a double whammy this week for new opening Kitchen 85 on Marlborough Street, who've managed to bag reviews in the Irish Times and the Irish Independent, both predominantly in praise of the Cantonese restaurant from the same owners as M&L Chinese around the corner....

Around this time of the year, we notice a bit of a shift in what’s cropping up on our Instagram feed. While January brings a timeline of salads and vegan food, February tends to be the month when good intentions are shrugged-off, and those heading out between storms ar...

Exciting news - porridge is back. Alright it never went away, but the breakfast staple is experiencing a resurgence on Dublin menus that’s elevating it from a safe and cheap add-on to the star of its very own morning show. Here’s where to find the most colourful and fl...

Brunch at Alma is always a winner, especially if you can get there early and beat the queues. The Choripan Argento (Argentine chorizo on sourdough with aioli, chimichurri, salsa criolla, fried eggs,onions, and sriracha) was packed with flavour. Let’s face it though, w...

24 Feb 2020

Of all of the Irish food traditions, Pancake Tuesday is probably our favourite. We don't need an excuse to eat pancakes/crepes/hot cakes, but we do enjoy the opportunity once a year to gorge on them (breakfast, lunch and dinner totally acceptable, as long as dinner is...

23 Feb 2020

In the Irish Independent this week (which now has a paywall btw so no more free restaurant review content unless you hand over your credit card details), Katy McGuinness *finally* has a good vegan experience at Glas on Chatham Street. This is off the back of giving Bea...
