Yes, we know it’s only October, and it’s not even Halloween yet, but you can’t hide from the fact that there's less than ten weeks until Christmas (cue screaming) and the venue recommendation requests have been sliding into our DMs recently. If you haven’t booked your...

We did a straw poll amongst our friends and family and unsurprisingly established that there are two types of people when it comes to eating alone; those who love the peace and solitude and would happily luxuriate for hours at a table for one, and those who see it as a...

Like every food-obsessed person living in Dublin in 2019, we love the variety of different cuisines now available across the city. From Vietnamese to Japanese, Italian to Ethiopian, the city is constantly growing and diversifying its food options and we are 100% here f...

In our never-ending quest for carbs, we frequently find ourselves craving pasta just like mama used to make. Not our mamas, because we were raised in 90's Ireland; a land where 00 flour didn’t dare to tread and our mammies relied on value bags of Roma, but these days w...

Seeya, summer. You’ve been a blast but wow, you’re a lot of effort. Sure, making the most of longer days, sunshine, and salads is great but the months now end in “-ber” and that’s our inner klaxon to think about slowing things down a little bit. We’re not quite ready f...

Covering everything from Leprechauns to libraries, Dublin has long been a haven for museums, galleries, and cultural hotspots, and you’ll find no end of opportunities to learn about the city and world around us if you act like a tourist for the day. We like to think we...

From petrol stations to 5 star hotels and every café in between, has a city ever taken an item so much in to their hearts (and breakfast menus) as Dublin has the humble scone? They’re the perfect vehicle to transport butter, jam, and cream (that’s right - we said “and”...

The evenings are starting to feel that little bit shorter (though there’s still time to eek out the last of the summer), supermarkets are hitting us hard with their back to school offers, and a certain Grafton St. department store opened its Christmas shop this week. G...

August can be a tough one. Summer is ebbing away, your memories of two weeks in the sun are probably fading as fast as your tan (or maybe not, shout-out to the SPF squad) and if you’re heading back to work, or turning thoughts towards going back to college or getting t...

As another long weekend has come and gone, and we’re left with the dawning realisation that it’s ages until the next one. It may be a short week for most of us, but it feels like a very long way to go to Friday, especially if you’ve over-indulged this bank holiday. You...

In between showers, that big yellow ball in the sky has been hanging in there (albeit intermittently), and the accompanying wash of colour on plates across the city is making us feel berry happy (sorry). Everywhere we look right now we're seeing brightly coloured berri...

Is French Toast even French? Well, kinda. The French did invent it (as pain perdu, or “lost bread”), but it’s not until it hit British shores in the 1600's that French Toast as we know it today got its name. We can never get enough of the good stuff, so to make up for...

A sushi-only restaurant has opened on Little Mary Street just off Capel Street. Fudo Izakaya is a sister restaurant to Sisu, the Japanese Izakaya near St. Stephen’s Green which opened last November.

Their initial plan was to operate as an Izakaya like Sisu (a Japan...

Summer has arrived in Dublin. Yes, it’s barely broken 20 degrees, and the sun hasn’t actually been shining that much, but the rain is gone and the bins in Portobello are filling up faster than the reservations book in Liath. And the food seems to have gotten brighter t...
