We have collected some of the most delectable foods being sold in Dublin right now and compiled them into an extensive ol’ list. So here are five things in Dublin this week that we like the look of:


Croquets -The Salt Project in D-8TE

There is something universally appealing about golden breadcrumbs. The colour and crispiness combine to trigger nostalgia for childhood Christmas croquettes. However, these croquettes are sure to be a level up from that. This hyper-local Irish street food from The Salt Project at D-8TE on the Roe&Co Distillery grounds looks like it will kick all other croquettes to the curb. Especially when combined with that homemade aioli.


Chocolates – Hen’s Teeth x Gordita’s

We all need a box of chocolates sometimes. Made up of Chocolate Hazelnut Montecitos, Golden Biscoff Crunch Montecitos, Ruby Pistachio Montecitos and White Chocolate Corn Flake Montecitos this the most visually appealing chocolates to come out of Dublin 8, maybe ever. All the fillings sound divine. Who doesn’t want to munch on a fancy white chocolate cornflake? They look like they will hit every spot you need scratched.


Pint of prawns – Salt and Vinegar

A pint of prawns has no business looking this good. Usually, when you order a prawn dish, you’re lucky if you get five crustaceans, but Salt and Vinegar have gone all in, and it looks like an experience that needs to be had by all. This luxurious pint of prawns is set to make you feel opulent and is definitely worth the trip to Rathfarnham.


Beef short rib –  Mister S

Have you ever seen a short rib look so delicious? I mean, that meat is glistening. Beckoning all carnivores, taunting them. Beef is always aesthetic, but this juicy number has so much going for it. The jus has the genuine appearance of golden perfection. It’s poised and ready to liven the medium-rare meat wrapped in it. The Chimichurri is the kind of green that lets you know it’s fresh and ready to be devoured. Overall it’s defintely a dish worth getting out of the house for.


Chicken burger croissant – Nice Burger

Southern fried chicken and bacon in a croissant instead of a bun. This ticks every box you could have in a what to check out this week. It looks like the kind of decadence every day should have with a bit of lettuce thrown in for a crunchy balance.
