Konkan offers the hottest Vindaloo in Dublin I ever had

Medina Street Food Co offers Aisan Street Food

As you will have gathered by now I have a penchant for Indian food. So the restaurant I was going to review this week served Indian cuisine and had two places in mind. My first choice was not available but they will be reviewed next week. My second choice...

Bunsen the best burger in Dublin

This week I wanted to review something simple and so delicious, a hamburger from Dublin’s best burger joint Bunsen who is 7 years old. Their no-nonsense burgers have been praised and their menus are famously simple and printed on a business card. Since 2013 they have expanded and opened...

The Kathmandu Kitchen offers authentic Nepalese and Indian cuisine

BoCo where you can have a pizza and a pint

This week my old college friend and I went to his local restaurant BoCo. A place, where you can have a pizza and a pint. What makes BoCo stand out is the oven they use for cooking. It’s not the typical Italian woodfired oven you would expect to see....

Marrakesh by Mindo one of Dublin’s hidden gems

My old college friend and I were going to an Italian restaurant for our latest Monday lunch when we had a problem. The restaurant was closed and we had to find somewhere else that was nearby. Storm Ciara was brewing up a mini storm and it was getting colder....
