Another win for cheese fans today with the news that Dublin's recent cheese-related pop up Meltdown has opened in a permanent location in Temple Bar. The new site is located at 2 Curved Street, and has indoor seating, an outside terrace and a roof garden.
As well as the original pop-up's cheese toasties and cheese boards, they're also serving breakfast, seasonal salads and ice-cream. Breakfast options include the 'Breakfast of Champs' with bacon, egg mayo, raclette, scallions, tomato and country relish (presumably on bread), avocado toast, and yoghurt with granola and berries.
The new toastie menu includes the 'Mac Mama' with macaroni and cheese, bacon, scallions and Monterey Jack cheese, and the 'All the Cheese' with raclette, gruyere, cheddar, pickle and whole grain mustard.
They're also serving ice cream cones with flakes and sprinkles, and sundaes with brownie, butterscotch and pecans. The Black Box, a community arts space is above the restaurant and they hope to see it used for exhibitions and events, and to raise awareness of important issues in the city.
To launch the opening, Meltdown are having a 'Secret Garden Party' this Saturday from 3pm - 11pm and are promising "crazy ice cream collabs, prosecco, bags of cans and Buckfast as well as three DJ set". Tickets are €10 and can be bought here.
