A new street food popup has opened in Malahide. DTF an acronym for Dirty Trendy Food, is a popup serving burgers, chips, cocktails and beers out of Oliver Dunne’s Ribeye Steakhouse in Townyard Lane.
The popup has been inspired by their “love of street food” and “lockdown life”. “We also wanted you guys to be able to enjoy seriously good food while we all impatiently wait for restaurants to reopen,” the team wrote on Instagram.
Highlights of the menu include the Wagyu Burger 11 made from 7oz Irish wagyu, with confit onion, bone marrow and shitake poutine sauce, Dubliner cheddar, rocket, tarragon and wasabi aioli served on a soft brioche bun and the Seafood 15 which is a burger made up of curried hake katsu with pulled lobster in confit lemon mayo, lashed with chunky lime and coriander tartar served on a brioche bun. There’s Surf fries with garlic butter, salt and chilli lobster, Turf fries which are skinny cut with peppercorn sauce and crispy beef alongside sweet potato Sweet fries with curried cashews, confit garlic and chilli aioli on top.
The DTF team are also doing some tasty looking specials which change each week, this week’s offerings are a Pint of Prawns made up of jumbo pink prawns with mustard mayo and Lobster McNuggets which are spicy lobster nuggets with mango and cardamon chutney, served with chilli sour cream.
There’s also coffees and milkshakes that come in Madagascan vanilla, bourbon whiskey and salted caramel, Bailey’s, white chocolate and white Russian flavours.
For those on the lookout for something stronger, there’s also pints and cocktails like the Trendy “G&T”, Ginger Apple, Strawberry Daiquiri and the Woo.
DTF is open from 5-9 pm on Friday-Saturday and Sunday from 1-9 pm, you can find them in Townyard Lane, Malahide, follow them on Instagram for more information.
