You’ll find Alma on South Circular Road.
Brunch has become a little exhausted in Dublin as of late but this brings something new and unique with its signature Argentinian twist. Classic brunch dishes like eggs and avo feature intriguing flavours like peanut rayu and homemade salsa; there are also some interesting dishes on the menu like steak and eggs with chimichurri, passed down from a family recipe.
What’s the vibe?
The venue is pretty compact with only a handful of tables so I can only imagine how difficult it might be to get a seat at peak brunch hour during the weekends.
It’s a lovely bright space, very chilled out and the staff are full of chatter.
The restaurant is run by an Argentinian lady whose parents and siblings have also moved over since it opened to lend a hand. There are four sisters in the family, which gives Alma its name – each letter representing a sister.
There are a few stools perched up at the front window, where you can pull open your laptop and work away while the world in front goes by.
It’s ideal for lone eaters or couples, but maybe not a big group of friends as space is limited.
