best BBQ in town…Asador. It may be a new restaurant in Dublin but the literal meaning comes from the Brazilian or Portugese for “to grill” or “to have a social gathering”.

Its one of those places where you know you are being a complete gobshite by even thinking of having a starter but where you go ahead and have one anyway cause you get carried away in the moment. Prawns Pil pil and beef carpaccio were delicious but why is it that the most iconic of Spanish holiday dishes never tastes as good at home as when it does in the sun?

Not only had we been looking for BBQ but cocktails were also very high on the menu. What is it about Irish people that as soon as the sun comes out we all feel we have to drink even more than usual? Maybe it’s the fact that we have just lived through 6 months of sideways freezing rain and that this could very possibly be the last sunny day of the year even though it is only May? The cocktails in here are absolutely fucking insanely good. I might have been influenced by the fact that we were sitting up at the bar and every time the Italian bar man made one for anybody in the place he gave us a shot to taste. A mixture of pink champagne, whiskey based cocktails and fruity specials later and we were getting smashed and nearly slipping to the point where you forget about the food.
