Where to eat Pumpkin in Dublin right now

We love seeing a seasonal menu around town and pumpkin is popping up everywhere at the moment. Most of the pumpkins we see at this time of year are large and ready for carving, with skin that's something to be battled, but there are loads more variations than your Cinderella carriage standard. The best ones are smaller, filled with flavour and have tender skin that's chewy and sweet after roasting, and thanks to growers like McNally Family Farm, we're seeing a lot more of them on Dublin restaurant and café menus. Here are some of the best places to eat pumpkin in Dublin right now.

The Regal One

Forest & Marcy, sister restaurant of Forest Avenue has made its mark from day one with a seasonal menu done right. Case in point - this Crown Prince pumpkin with cep custard, capers and raisins.

The Middle Eastern One

Spot on flavour pairings at Hey Donna with their roasted pumpkin, shiitake creme, mint and honey yogurt, and killer Insta game to boot.

The Whipped Cheese One

3fe's squash, orange and whipped feta salad looked like another well balanced plate of flavour from chef Holly Dalton’s kitchen.

The Healthy One

Sprout and Co are known for making healthy tasty, and this spicy Indian chicken and squash salad with curry yogurt, organic kale and spinach leaves from the Sprout farm fits the bill.

The One on Toast

Pumpkin on toast is something we never knew we wanted or needed. Storyboard’s version with preserved lemon yogurt and spiced nut butter is looking like a very appealing brunch option for the weekend.
