With Halloween over we're already looking to what we're going to eat in January - we're not even kidding. There's also duck liver parfait, rainbow rolls and piled high waffles on our must have menu this week...
1) Duck Liver Parfait, Hen's Teeth
We haven't seen much from Hen's Teeth recently, but this duck liver parfait with fig, pickles and chutney on brioche from new head chef Kev Milson gave us all the cravings. Their all day menu runs from 12pm till late from Friday - Sunday.
2) Galette des Rois (for next January), Go Pan
We can't actually believe we're talking about eating something post Christmas, but Go Pan open reservations for their January Galette des Rois today, and we thought you might like to know. The French traditionally eat the flat, round puff pastry cake filled with almond cream on the day of epiphany (6th January), and Go Pan's will cost €50. Email email@example.com to reserve.
3) Rainbow Rolls, Wasabi
We've found the solution to brighten up those cold, wet November days - rainbow rolls from Wasabi. Stuffed with crayfish, Philadephia and cucumber, with slices of avocado, tuna, salmon and white fish on top, they're crowned with wasabi mayo & masago, and if all that wasn't enough, their black zakkoku rice sets them apart from the crowd even more.
4) Weekend Waffles at The Washerwoman, Glasnevin
If you're going to do a waffle, you should do it right, and this piled high 'Greek' version from The Washerwoman in Glasnevin comes with fruit compote, yoghurt, roasted nuts & maple syrup. You can also go 'Florentine' (poached eggs, spinach and hollandaise) or 'Benny' (with poached eggs, bacon and hollandaise). Find them on the menu every Saturday and Sunday from 12:00.
5) Mandarin & Dulce de Leche Layer Cake
The words 'guilt free' usually fill us with trepidation, but this layer cake from Guilt Free Bites looks like it could give 'free from' a good name. Mandarin flavoured gluten-free almond sponge, lactose-free Dulce de leche, toasted hazelnuts and dairy free buttercream all add up to a cake we really want a slice of this week.
