Seven Dishes That’ll Put A Smile On Your Face This Dreary Day

Éadaoin Fitzmaurice

It’s a bit of a kick in the teeth when you wake up and you can hear how shite the weather is before even opening your blinds.


I have to say I’m totally fine with layering up in winter but it’s April and my skin is only screaming for a bit of Vitamin D.

Though I can’t control the weather I can add a bit of happiness to your day. Each week I compile a stun list of delish foodie bits.

Here’s something to tickle your fancy:

1. Flatbreads – The Pepper Pot

Homemade Flatbreads with Baba Ganoush Panfried Haloumi and all the good stuff.


2. Acai Bowl – Juanitos

There’s honestly nothing tastier than a big bowl of fruit, all the better when it’s loaded with acai goodness.

3. Mashed Potato – Shelbourne Social

Honestly, the BEST mashed potato I’ve ever had, so creamy and full of flavour.

Y U M.

4. Ice Cream Pot – Sweet Carolines

Summer is approaching which means ice cream season is nigh.

Sweet Caroline’s in Portmarnock is similar to Scrum’s, you can add any toppings you like. The only thing that beats a 99 is one covered in chocolate.

5. Meatball Sub – Annie’s

Annie’s is a darling café located near the canal. Grab a sambo and find a bench to perch yourself and watch the world go by for an hour.

6. Hot Cross Buns – Brother Hubbard

Brother Hubbard is one of my fave spots in town to stop off for a coffee and a sweet treat.


7. Prawn Cracker Nachos – The Ramen Bar

A Mexican/Asian fusion that sounds just wonderful.

I need to try this one.
