5 Things We Want To Eat In Dublin This Week

We're nearly there guys. One more freezing spell this week before we inevitably get to a tropical St Paddy's Day, and then it's plain sailing to summer from then on. Here's what want to eat this week to make that final wait that much easier...

1) Breakfast Taco, Los Chicanos Taco

You want to bring a great Mexican taco maker to an Irish food festival. There's only one thing for it - Irish breakfast tacos. Scott Holder's Los Chicanos Tacos will be popping up at Me Auld Flower Festival with this bacon, egg and avo creation, and we'd eat it at any time of the day.

2) The Bacon Seduction Burger, Pitt Bros BBQ

While we don't condone the use of the word 'seduction' when naming dishes, this bacon burger from Pitt Bros BBQ certainly grabbed our attention this week. They top a beef pattie with caramelised onion, cheddar cheese and bacon jam, and wrap it in a brioche bun, and you can find it in their George's Street restaurant or at their pop up at Me Auld Flower Festival next weekend.

3) Bolognese Pizza, Rua Wood-Fired Pizza

Usually we have to wait until we go on holidays to eat pizza with Bolognese on top (you'll find us rifling through the freezer section of many a Spanish supermarket)️, but Rua in Phibsborough are bringing the holiday feeling to us this week. Their special come topped with pork and beef Bolognese, mozzarella and fresh chilli, and comes topped with rocket and a ball of burrata cheese. Beats the one from Mercadona.

4) Cassata Siciliana, Dolce Sicily

If you've ever visited Sicily you've probably come across their famous jewelled dessert - 'Cassata Siciliana'. While they come in many different combinations, it will always include sponge cake soaked in fruit juice or liqueur, layered with ricotta and candied fruit, encased in marzipan and topped with eye-popping designs, including lots more candied fruit. We've never seen one in the Irish wild until now. If you want one as much as we do pop an email to

5) The Sunday Roast, Hen's Teeth

Dublin is somewhat bereft when it comes to Sunday roasts that make us want to leave the house, but Hen's Teeth are trying to right that wrong, and here's the pic to prove it. Their Sunday roast comes with a choice of roast pork; roast chicken, mushroom and tarragon pie; or cauliflower and durrus pie, along with seasonal greens, braised red cabbage and roast potatoes. It clocks in at €60 for two with a bottle of wine, or it's €22.50 just for the roast.
