The food: Fried chicken
Fried chicken, done right. The guys behind Mad Egg are Conor Sheridan and Stephen O’Reilly, and they currently have two branches on either side of the Liffey with more on the cards. They use Irish, free-range chicken that’s tea brined for 48 hours, dredged in spiked buttmilk then covered in their special seasoned coating before being fried to juicy perfection. Good beer selection too. You might need a nap afterwards.
