50 Minority & Immigrant-Owned Restaurants to Support Always But Especially Now

The impact of racial violence in our own city is increasingly difficult to navigate. The collective heartbreak we feel as the result of yesterday’s violence can feel insurmountable. 

Whenever these events occur, it’s important to take stock of what we can actually do to support those most at risk and vulnerable to racism or violence. It can feel like we’re all very powerless, but we are legion and we have agency. One simple way anyone can support marginalised communities is to eat in their restaurants. It can sound trite, but food is the great uniter. Breaking bread together heals.

Diversity builds economic vitality, uplifts communities, and promotes productivity and resilience. For a green economy, holistic sustainability is impossible without the inclusion of all. Supporting Immigrant-owned businesses in turn supports families, employees, and other business owners, as well as attracts community investors who provide banking services, loans, and promote financial literacy–all things that build economic strength. It may seem small but it can bring mighty change. 

Here you will find a non-exhaustive list of immigrant-owned restaurants you can support always, but especially now.

And finally, your local Chinese, Indian, kebab shop. These are almost always owned by immigrants and their families. These are the ones closest to you and probably most in need of your support. When you vote with your dollar, you are voting for an inclusive Dublin.
