5 Things We Want To Eat In Dublin This Week

Even though the daffodils are popping up and buds are popping out, it's definitely still winter by the looks of menus around town, and the weather forecast. We reckon it's going to be all change for spring in the next week or two, but in the meantime we're languishing in broths, stews, and plums cake.

1) Spicy Tori Paitan From Nomo Ramen

Oh hello Nomo, aren't you looking well. Due to open in March, Nomo Ramen are starting the social teasers and look at this spicy tori paitan - chicken broth infused with their homemade chilli oil. It's going to be a long few weeks...

2) Pork Belly With Asian Spices, Amy Austin

We have a thing about bad pork belly, and this does not look like bad pork belly. Wine bar Amy Austin currently have it on the menu in a broth with Asian spices, and the skin looks shatteringly crispy.

3) Black Beans From Los Chicanos

We're big fans of the tacos from Los Chicanos, but are now crushing on these black beans with lime crema and pickled hibiscus. The sooner these guys open a bricks and mortar restaurant the better.

4) Fish And Chips From Salt & Vinegar

Sometimes it all gets a bit much and you just need to pare it back to basics. New Rathfarmham chipper Salt & Vinegar serve salt and pepper squid, pints of prawns and fish finger sandwiches, but how good does the basic one and one look, complete with handcut chips.

5) Plum Cake From Luncheonette

We feel like we haven't seen or eaten half enough plums this winter, so were very happy to see this "cinnamonny, cardomommy" buckwheat, flour-free plum cake from Luncheonette appear on the grid this week. Find them at the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin 1.
