Like us, we’re sure you don’t want to needlessly over-complicate your life, but if the last four months have been an incoherent mess of work, home, parenting, and trying to stay sane, you might want to restore a bit of order. Here’s our list of 5 thing we want to eat t...

If it’s hot in Dublin and you’re not posing with an ice-cream on your Insta, was it really even summer? While the temperatures may have dipped, our ice-cream capacity hasn’t, and we’re making a point of seeking out as much of the good stuff as we can, while we can. Her...

Like just about everyone else in the country, we’re not loving lockdown. Yes, we know it’s important, and we’re sticking to the rules (for the most part), but it’s hard when you miss your family, friends, restaurants and going outside.

We have many questions that revolv...

Life in lockdown continues, and while it won’t change what we celebrate, it has changed how we do it. We suggest it’s time to swap your slippers for your second most comfy pair of footwear, wash your hair properly (not just the front so it looks passable on work Zoom c...

While things aren’t back to normal yet (and won’t be for a looong time), the easing of certain social-distancing restrictions this week mean that some of us will have more access to the places we love and miss. Here are five things we want to eat this week to make life...

One of the few things that's made us optimistic in the middle of Ireland’s COVID-19 crisis is seeing the ingenuity and adaptability from so many restaurants, producers and suppliers. While we know it’s not possible for everyone to turn themselves into an artisan Amazon...

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...

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...

Dublin took another battering this weekend; it was frosty, cold, hostile, and made us quite unsettled. Yes, we’re talking about the election. What's going to happen next is anyone's guess, but we don’t think anyone is sad to see the back of the campaign cheese fest. If...

Ireland’s relationship with food is evolving. While the meat-and-two-veg approach served us well for decades, lots of factors (economical, environmental, ethical, health, and maybe even a little horse-meat scandal here and there) have meant people are thinking more abo...

Restaurants run on a different calendar to the rest of the world. While most of us were back to work in early January, Instagram and Twitter became awash with restaurants gleefully announcing that they were closing for the night for their annual staff Christmas party,...

What’s not to love about Valentine’s Day? Pretty much everything - overpriced cards, tacky teddy bears, office workers taking your eye out on a packed bus as they transport their already half-dead bouquet of roses home, bad set menus, and restaurant staff trying to rus...

Dry January, Veganuary, Ginuary - there’s no shortage of bandwagons to jump on this month. While we’re not big on bandwagons (with the obvious exception of Ginuary), we do love food in all forms, so happily flex between meat-based and veggie/vegan meals, but this week...
