Since Lucky Tortoise finished their residency in Hobarts Café in Ranelagh a few months ago, there's been a dim sum shaped hole in Dublin's dining scene. They're still on the hunt for a permanent spot, and are in the process of opening a new Vietnamese (watch this space for news), but in the meantime they're bringing Lucky Tortoise back for two weeks in the old Granthams site on Aungier Street.
The Lucky Tortoise pop up will open for lunch and dinner, and the menu will be a mixture of old favourites and new dishes, including siu mai, wontons, lemongrass pork baos, coconut rice, kimchi and sesame cucumbers. They're also doing a €10 set lunch, which includes dim sum, rice and kimchi, and it's BYOB. Sold yet?
Lucky Tortoise opens tonight at 6pm, and from tomorrow will be open from 12-10pm for the next two weeks, serving food all afternoon. This is a great opportunity to get a dim sum fix, while we (im)patiently wait for Thom Lawson and co to find a permanent home.
Lucky Tortoise Pop-Up
8 Aungier Street, Dublin 2
From 6pm tonight, then 12pm - 10pm for the next two weeks
