5 things we want to eat in Dublin this week
From heart-shaped baos to pear-fect burgers, here's what caught our eye this week.
1. The best breakfast from Two Boys Brew
This porridge from Two Boys Brew is making ours looks like a bowl of cement. Vanilla baked plums, cherry compote and burnt white chocolate museli. Good luck trying to enjoy your bowl of Flavahan's tomorrow.
2. Family style plates from Clanbrassil House
The family style menu from Clanbrassil House is looking very appealing this week, especially that chicken liver parfait with burnt apple. Roasted leeks with crispy chicken skin and smoked trout toast make up the trio of starters. Only problem is we're not sharing.
3. Perfect pastries from Scéal bakery
The masters of pastry take three days to make these twice baked almond croissants, and we can't think of a better start to the day. Find them at Penders Market on Saturdays and Dublin Flea this Sunday 28th.
4. This pear-fect burger from BuJo (their pun, not ours)
The Burger Joint of the moment has created a limited edition burger available for one week only (ending Sunday 28th), featuring smoked Monterey Jack cheese, chargrilled, caramelised Rocha pear, Beechwood-smoked Hampshire rare-breed bacon and Ballymaloe relish, all served on a toasted brioche bun with two patties of Irish, grass-fed beef.
5. Chameleon's heart-shaped beetroot bao
Style and substance from Chameleon's Kevin O'Toole, who started making these as an experiment but they were so good they're staying on the menu. There are 3 fillings to choose from: Lightly battered Irish plaice, yuzu mayonnaise, carrot crisp and microherbs, Crispy onion bhaji, coriander and mint salsa, and Crispy tofu, pickles, mango and chilli jam.
