Things to eat in and around Dublin from April 25 until May 1
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:
As the weather heats up sometimes, all you want is some fresh fish. Particularly fish that hasn’t been battered and submerged in oil. Enter this bouncy baked fillet of cod with mussels and cauliflower on a bed of sauce Negra. Hits the spot like a salt bae chef’s kiss before the gold leaf.
Berry season is finally here! Bright, vibrant raspberries are ripe for the desserting. Huzzah! Glás’s Raspberry and tea special dessert looks like the delicate decadence you deserve this weekend. The textual matrix is to round out any meal and sweeten the deal. This dainty number looks like it’s one for the bucket list.
If you don’t eat mushrooms, this mushroom karaage will change that. Seasoned to the gods with crispy outer crust with a tender meaty texture inside, these bad boys make for the perfect appetiser at Dublin’s newest ramen bar. Last week, I ordered these with my brother, and the carnivore ate the entire bowl, only leaving me one. He wasn’t even sorry. I don’t blame him, though. They are grade a brilliant.
Sandwiched between two slices of bread is the kind of joy that only a sandwich can bring. You can go around the world from the comfort of your desk with this banger from POG: The New Yorker. Their homage to the home of the world’s best sandwiches is made from pastrami, sauerkraut, pickles, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing. They have made a sandwich in Manhattan snobs couldn’t possibly turn their noses up at.
Chimac makes some of the best chicken in Dublin, and this burger is no different. Their Korean Chicken Parm burger is made from spicy gochujang and San Marzano DOP tomato sauce, fresh basil, twice-fried free-range chicken breast, smoked scamorza and basil mayo in a fresh Amish bun. With so many flavours packed into such a meal, you might have to eat it twice to taste all the goodness.
