Be warned, this week’s Bite-size news is going to leave you hungry and thirsty!
Doughnuts, doughnuts everywhere!
It seems every week there is fresh news about doughnuts. Revolution Bakery is supplying more and more businesses like Bear Market in Blackrock and Emer’s Kitchen on Leeson Street. They are even making a red coloured “Strawberries and Cream” doughnut. Aungier Danger are trying to keep up with Dublin’s insatiable demand by hosting a pop up shop in Arnott’s on Henry Street for the whole month of February. As usual, you will need to get there before the crowd, otherwise you will walk away grumpy and hungry!
What is Assassination Custard you ask? It’s “a sort of Italian” cafe on Kevin Street according to the owners. There is so many cafes’ opening up lately that are serving great sandwiches and coffee, so why should you go here over places like 147 Deli or Ugly Ducking Dublin? Well, look at their menu and you can see that Assassination Custard is offering something different than everybody else. Choose from zaatar rolls, beetroot moutabel, burnt ricotta and sour cherry pie, or a cake of blood orange, pistachio and semolina.
History lovers will get an interesting fact about Samuel Beckett if they ask about the cafe’s name!
If you are lucky enough to work close to one of Dublin’s lunchtime markets, chances are you’ve seen or tried Kerala Kitchen’s Indian street food. They have been feeding people with dishes like potato and pea curry, dal and kofta, and vegetable jalfrezi. Fortunately for the rest of us, they have now officially opened up premises on Upper Baggot Street.
Curry and spice lovers can rejoice, now you can get your fix of beautiful Indian food once work is over!
Sliabh Liag distillery
Irish whiskey lovers will be able to satisfy their thirst by getting their hands on some Pot Still whiskey, among others, from the new Sliabh Liag distillery in Donegal. There will be no chill filtering or colouring, ensuring that there will be a unique taste profile of spice and smokiness. There will be limited availability of their bottles so keep your eyes peeled for their release date in the future.
Beautiful bacon beer burgers
It sure does look like we are obsessed with burgers. Maybe we are…They say no good comes from an obsession, but we beg to differ. Shake Shack in America share this view as they are offering burgers slathered in Dijon mustard, topped with Swiss cheese and onions that have been simmered in bacon and beer. Fingers crossed that Bunsen or Wowburger may do the same with their onion toppings in the future!
