ATF Insiders - January's Monthly 9 Giveaway

Our monthly 9 giveaways for January are now live with a definite January theme! At home kits, meal prep deliveries and veganism. Everyone signed up to ATF Insiders will be automatically entered into the draw, and we're looking forward to brightening up these dark days for nine of you. As always thank you for supporting what we do. You literally keep the lights on around here.

Everyone subscribed by midnight on Monday 17th January will be entered into the draw, and winners will be picked and notified on Tuesday 18th January. Here's what's coming up this month...

1) Tasting Menu With Cocktails & Wine At Ukiyo

Ukiyo aren't letting no 8pm lockdown get them down. Their covered, heated terrace off Exchequer Street is serving small plates, sliders and sushi from 12:00 - 20:00 seven days a week, and there's indoor seating too in case you've got the January chills. They've given us a prize for one of our lucky Insiders of a tasting menu for two with a selection of small plates, sushi, otoshi snacks and bento box specials, as well as cocktails on arrival and a bottle of house wine. Could there be a better way to beat the January, how-is-Covid-still-a-thing, blues? Check out Ukiyo here.

2) A Chinese New Year Prize Package From Asia Market

The year of the tiger is fast approaching, and who better to show us how to celebrate Chinese New Year on the 1st February than our favourite source of noodles, kimchi and all the frozen dumplings - Asia Market. They're hosting loads of cultural food events across their Drury Street and Ballymount stores (and online) in January and February, including a free Chinese New Year Night Market on Thursday 3rd February, featuring Bites By Kwanghi, Ginger's BBQ, Man Street Kitchen and more. As part of the celebrations Asia Market have given us an AMAZING prize package to give away to one of you, including:

- A 'Journey To The East' box for two full of Asia Market goodies, and a ticket to their 'Explore Cook Eat' after-hours online tour and live, interactive cook-along with Malaysian chef Sham Hanifa of The Cottage restaurant on Sunday 30th January

- A Chinese New Year-themed banquet feast for two from their Fade Street restaurant Duck

- A €50 voucher to spend in-store or online at www.asiamarket.ie

Happy new year or what!

3) Dinner For Two With Drinks From V-Face

V-Face have been bringing their 'animal burgers made with plants' to the Dublin market since 2019, and opened their permanent restaurant in Smithfield in 2020. We were immediately struck by the amount of feedback they were getting from non-vegans saying how shockingly good their burgers were, and they seem to have gone from strength to strength. They've just launched a new salad and milkshake range for Veganuary, featuring the 'Bravo Chicky Avocado' and the 'Asian Equation', as well as Tiramisu, chocolate and strawberry milkshakes. To celebrate they've given us a meal for two to give away, with mains, sides, dessert, milkshakes and wine included. Check them out here.
