5 Things We Want To Eat In Dublin This Week

While the “will they/won’t they” of indoor dining continues to give us vibes that are rapidly becoming less Ross and Rachel, and more Miley and Fidelma, we know that, like us, a lot of you are just keeping your mind off everything by continuing to eat and supporting your favourite restaurants via takeaways, meal kits, and grabbing outdoor tables when you can. Here’s the 5 Things we want to eat in Dublin this week that are available on the go or sitting in the sunshine.




1) Pear, Bacon and Cheddar Danish from The Pepper Pot Bakery


We were not expecting The Pepper Pot Café to branch out into nearby George’s Street Arcade with a dedicated bakery counter, but they did, and we were thrilled. Then we spotted that they’ve reimagined their iconic pear, bacon, and cheddar sandwich as a Danish pastry and we were momentarily speechless, but the shock abated and now we're able to tell you about it. Get it at The Pepper Pot Bakery - read more about it in this week's piece on new openings.




2) The Incredible Cluck from Cluck Chicken


Cluck, the bright yellow chicken truck in Walkinstown has created something that makes our head (and arteries) say no, but our greedy little hearts say yes. While we never like describing food as “dirty”, fried free-range chicken, truffle mac and cheese with smoked Gubbeen, and parmesan mayo has to be classed as sheer filth in anyone’s book.




3) Prawn Mandu from Jaru Mart


Jaru Mart, the online market from Jaru, has meal kits, ready meals, and Asian groceries, and has just added a bunch of new items including these prawn mandu - whole jumbo prawns with pork, ginger, scallion, and cabbage encased in dumpling wrappers. They deliver across Dublin and as far south as Greystones, or you can arrange weekend collection from their kitchen in Nutgrove in Dublin 14.




4) Hibiscus And Vanilla Choux Bun From Drury Buildings


We told you recently that choux buns are having a moment, and it’s not ending any time soon. Seeing even more of them pop up all over the city makes us very happy, and Drury Buildings version with hibiscus, vanilla, and raspberry is a summery take that we want in on before it's too late.
