What an incredible December! We are buried by work here at Menupages as the Irish food scene is so active. We always find the time to pick you the tastiest morsels of weekly news. Here are our Bite-sized news of the week!
A few restaurants closed this November for a lack of property!
Let’s start with some bad news (or maybe good for us?) Most of the Restaurants in Ireland follow a very strict legislation about food safety and hygiene. However, not everybody is able to comply with it. That is why the Food Safety Authority exists! In fact, during the month of November the organization closed a significant number of establishments. The list include: Legends, located 63 George’s Street Upper in Dun Laoghaire, Ming Court Restaurant in Blanchardstown Centre and Pizza House in Kilmacow, Kilkenny.
