#21: Top 5 best looking things to eat in Dublin this week

Things to eat in and around Dublin from September 27 until October 3 everything from scotch eggs, damson croissants to crispy speck.

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:


The Winding Stair’s Scotch Egg Dinner

It’s safe to say that any meal that includes a scotch egg as part of the plating is a winner. The Winding Stair have created a dish that’s the antidote to rainy Autumn evenings, made up of cider-braised pork cheeks, crushed turnip, scotch egg, green beans and gravy. You can find The Winding Stair on the quays at 40 Ormond Quay Lower, for more information visit their Instagram.


Sceal Bakery’s Damson and Hazelnut Croissant

Although they are sometimes elusive to find, damsons have to be one of Autumn’s big-ticket ingredients. Sceal Bakery were lucky enough to find some of those small plums, and have created a croissant filler out of it. Pairing it with a hazelnut praline swirl, the deft hands of Sceal Bakery have created the twice-baked croissant with a caramelised hazelnut crust. You can find Sceal Bakery at Dublin 8’s The Fumbally Stables Hatch or in Rathmines’s The Hopsack, for more information visit their website.


Arepas Grill’s Tostones

This Caribbean and Latin America staple, tostones are made from flattened twice-fried plantains. Arepas Grill have created their own version of the dish, that’s loaded savoury style with corn, cheese, shredded carrot and red onion. The Venezuelan Cuisine slingers have said that the dish is, “a piece of our Caribbean peckish at the beach”. You can find Arepas Grill in Dublin 2’s 39 Richmond Street, for more information visit their Instagram.


One Society’s Hangover Stack

A cafe is considered to be brave when they strike out on their own, push the limits of culinary rules and flout conventions. One such spot is One Society, who have put a fried egg on top of a stack of pancakes. Calling it the Hangover Stack, the dish is a play on the sweet and salty flavours which work so damn well. A fried egg sits pretty atop a stack of vanilla pancakes with crispy bacon, tabasco, ricotta, all dripping in maple. You can find One Society in Mountjoy’s 1 Lower Gardiner Street for more information visit their Instagram.


Paulie’s Pizza’s Pan Fried Gnocchi

This gnocchi from D4 institution Paulie’s Pizza certainly hits different. The doughy handmade gnocchi formations have been seared in a pan with sage and brown butter, before being topped with crispy speck [smoked or pickled pork belly] and a few shaves of parmesan cheese. You can find Paulie’s Pizza in Dublin 4’s 58 Grand Canal Street Upper, for more information visit their Instagram.
