Food and Drink

Restaurant Review: Hang Dai Chinese

I’m sitting in a fake subway booth that has been inspired by Hong Kong, and has the feel of the set of Blade Runner. The tiny morsel of food in my mouth has left me speechless. It’s the texture of grainy fudge and its taste is overpoweringly intense. Time seems to slow down as my system tries to make sense of this overwhelming experience. I’m at Hang Dai on Camden Street and I’ve just eaten duck brain for the first time.

Barfly: O’Connell’s

I’ve been assured by relations of the correct vintage that the doorway does indeed function as a wormhole to the oft-eulogised days of yore.

Soundbite: Kevin Roche and Taurean Coughlan: Two Boys Brew

Kevin Roche and Taurean Coughlan opened Two Boys Brew in Phibsborough, inspired by the specialty coffee cultures they experienced on their travels. Taurean tells us about the Aussie influenced Brunch offerings that have been going down a storm and their aspirations to help further build on Dublin’s coffee culture.

 

Our Table

Our Table is inspired by the lack of rights for those in the Direct Provision system to prepare their own food, which further strips them of their dignity in an already traumatic system.

Barfly: Bull and Castle

Playing on the bar’s ownership by FX Buckley’s, the Bull and Castle has doubled down on taxidermy, butcher’s tiles, a plethora of weighing scales and chalkboards on the walls declaring the specialness of all their offerings: their oysters, their rum, their gin, their beer.
