Things to eat in and around Dublin from June 22 until June 28

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

05

STAD NA SOILSE – Daddy’s

This is a whopper veggie special sandwich. It beckons like a siren in all its beige and brown glory. Daddy’s have proved themselves time and time again as being the game-changing ones to watch in the vegetarian sandwich game. This bad boy is made from Jenny’s organic wood-fired cauliflower tossed in Marmite butter, cracked hazelnut, and sherry onion confit with McNally’s Leaves. Of course, non-vegans can choose to add cheese or bacon if they feel so inclined, but this looked like it needs no additions.

04

Slow Cooked Pork Belly – Drury Buildings

Slow-cooked pork belly was invented to pair with peanut slaw and this hot miso sauce. The nuts add flavour and an unexpected crunch, while the pork contrasts with a soft, melty texture that would make your mouth water. The hot miso sauce subverts your expectation by leaving a spicy afterglow on this umami-focused dish. Usually, I wouldn’t be mad about recommending Asian-style foods outside Asian-focused places, but this one delivers.

03

Kimchi Mussels – Soup

Kimchi mussels. Who would have thought to put these two unlikely friends together other than the genuine innovators in Soup? Here the people who built their name in part in the success of their deep-fried kimchi have knocked it out of the proverbial park again by pan-cooking the most sustainable fish in chipotle chilli and kimchi sake cream. The dish is served with chargrilled bread in garlic oil, which perfectly elevates the dish. I’m considering going back for seconds on it. It’s that tasty.

02

Ham and Cheese Toastie – Pangea

Ham and Cheese toasties appeal to all of our nostalgic love of food receptors. But this chonky boy here is a standout. With thick-cut natural ham, this is one even your mammy would like. The tonnes of melted cheese means you will be When-Harry-Met-Sally-moaning about it for days to come—a definite must from this new Swords spot.

01

Sheep’s milk & blood orange – Library Street

Library street can’t take a wrong turn. It’s fundamentally impossible. Since their opening, just before Christmas, they have been hitting homer after homer. Or insert a sports reference of your choice. This Sheep’s milk and Blood orange ice cream sorbet dish is no exception. It tastes like an elevated summer super split with rich textural variety and vibrant complexity that’s hard to articulate without sounding like a wanker. It’s been weeks since I tried it, and I wish I could pop by just for this dessert. If you’re eating out this week, this is the dessert you should choose.
