This will be very popular - you've been warned.
One of Dublin's hidden gems, Lil Portie serves up Caribbean food with a Latin twist - and it's seriously good.
A pop-up experience, the restaurant set up shop at Two Fifty Square for a series of sittings last year. Proving to be very popular, one of our own went out to sample the goods and in his words "good Lord, it's so good!".
Past menus included the likes of jerk chicken, salt fish, gumbo, Cuban pork shoulder tacos and their famous jackfruit patacones - like pulled pork but vegan.
We've been waiting for news of another pop-up since last December but luckily the wait is over as Lil Portie has revealed plans for three upcoming pop-ups. And soon too.
