Things to eat in and around Dublin from October 4 until October 10
We have collected some of the most delectable foods being sold in Dublin right now and compiled them into a big ol’ list. Here are five things in Dublin this week that we like the look of:
Known as “cong you bing”, the savoury pancake is made by folding oil and minced scallions through unleavened flatbread. Lucky Tortoise’s take on the traditional Chinese dish, comes with chilli oil and chopped scallions. You can find Lucky Tortoise on Dublin 2’s 8 Aungier Street, for more information visit their Instagram account.
The recently reopened Stack A Restaurant has rolled out a new set menu, for their vaulted dining room. Headed up by chef Dan Keane the menu features a lot of seasonal ingredients, including the slow-cooked rare breed pork belly that’s been paired with balsamic pickled fig, salsa verde, and fermented chilli. You can find Stack A in the CHQ Building, Custom House Quay, for more information visit their Instagram.
With just the flip of a toaster, poptarts can bring you right back to nostalgia town. The Dublin bakers have created their own version of the pastries, complete with sprinkles and icing, the team wrote, “our childhood favourite that we still can’t get enough of”. You can find Bread 41 on Dublin 2’s 41 Pearse Street, for more information visit their Instagram account.
This season of warming soups and rich dark fruits, would have you craving a last little taste of Indian Summer. Wigwam have created a tropical ceviche, that looks as fresh as a daisy. Using sea bass, the ceviche is placed on a base of açaí, topped with chilli, pickled red onion and chunks of mango. You can find Wigwam in Dublin 1’s 54 Middle Abbey Street, for more information visit their Instagram.
Priding themselves on making old-style dishes well, Daddy’s have taken on one of the OGs of the kitchen table, the quiche. With a buttery shortcrust pastry shell, the team opted for a Crozier blue cheese, melted leek innards with a hazelnut crumb. The slice is served with McNally’s Organic Leaves with pickled red onion on top. The team at Daddy’s have said that their quiches are cooked from scratch every day. You can find Daddy’s in Rialto’s 538 South Circular Road, for more information visit their Instagram.
