Ah the Beaster weekend
Baste’s origin story is a pretty inspirational one, launching after the pandemic called a halt to the annual Big Grill Festival. Baste has grown into a go-to BBQ takeaway on Dublin’s southside. A year on from their Rocky-style comeback, Baste is launching a pandemic style love letter to the Big Grill Festival, with their Beaster Weekend food market. Operating out of the little space they’ve carved out on Portobello’s Clanbrassil Street, the market will run for the Easter weekend, or as they like to call it the ‘Beaster’ weekend.
Shelves will be stocked by Dublin’s newest seafood supplier Sharkbait Shelbys, bagels New York style from DEADLY Bagel. Wine from Baste’s store cupboards alongside their BBQ line up of Steak Frites Friday, Saturday’s offering of Lamb Al Asador, and Sunday’s Baste collaboration with Deadly Bagel. There will be caffeine from Vice Coffee and ice cream from Arctic Stone.
The market will be outdoors, opening across the Easter weekend from the 2nd-4th of April from 12-4 pm.
The market is takeaway only and Baste is advising customers to pre-order if possible to avoid disappointment. More information on pre-ordering is available through Baste’s click-and-collection website here.
