Jaru's are bringing Korean food to Dublin 8, a second space for Kind as Folk, and a New Orelans pop-up. Here’s what’s new in Dublin this month...
One Kinda Folk, Upper Leeson Street
One Kinda Folk have opened their second location on Upper Leeson Street, in the former home of now closed Forest & Marcy. Their original location is a little hatch hidden away off Dartmouth Road in Ranelagh, so this is a move to coffee shop proper. Expect breakfast and lunch, cake and pastries, and all the different coffees.
Space Jaru, Dublin 8
Korean food producers Jaru have opened their first restaurant, Space Jaru, on Meath Street in The Liberties. Pork Jeyuk and Chicken Dakgalbi Korean BBQ bowls, Korean fried chicken and sides like seaweed gim, lotus roots and their famous kimchi are some of the options on their lunch menu. For dinner it's a similiar vibe with the addition of small bites like beef galbi dumplings, double fried boneless chicken thighs and slow braised kimchi and pork stew. Check out the full dinner menu here. Space Jaru opens Wednesdays to Sundays for lunch and dinner and for lunch on Sundays.
Gumbo Etc, Dublin 7
There's a new pop up in The Glimmerman in Stoneybatter, while Vietnom take a hard-earned holiday. Gumbo Etc. specialises in classic New Orleans dishes, like chicken and smoked sausage Gumbo, roast beef Po'Boy sandwiches, and smoked sausage beans and rice. Keep an eye on their Instagram for weekly specials.
