4 events for... foodies looking to try something new at Taste of Dublin

It’s that time of year again.

WITH MORE THAN 20 of Dublin’s most exciting restaurants, live demonstrations and boutique food markets, Taste of Dublin kicks off in the Iveagh Gardens today for four days of foodie heaven.

Unlike previous years, all restaurants and bars now accept debit and credit cards (not Florins), and all signature dishes are priced at €5. 

Spoiled for choice? Fear not as we’ve rounded up four restaurants to visit to try something new…

1. Shaka Poké

Try a taste of Hawaii in Dublin at Shaka Poké. Poké is a traditional Hawaiian dish made of cubed and marinated sashimi fish, while the poké bowl is a modern twist on this whereby the freshly caught fish is served with rice, fresh vegetable, tropical fruit and a number of toppings. If that doesn’t convince you, the appeal of the brightly coloured bowls as they’re served up will.

2. Hang Dai

Popular Camden St spot Hang Dai comes to Taste of Dublin for the first time this year – and it’s bound not to disappoint. Try the pork dumplings and asparagus spring rolls with kimchi mayonnaise as you inevitably plan a trip to the restaurant itself.

3. Lil Portie

If you’ve never tried Jamaican food, Lil Portie will make you wonder why. The Rathmines restaurant will be serving jack fruit patacon with sweet pepper salsa, jerk pork roti with lime pepper slaw and salt-fish fritters with scotch bonnet mayo. 

4. Grálinn

Pop-up caterers Grálinn come to Taste of Dublin for the first time this year, bring a menu of hearty Irish dishes with a twist. The icon dish (€8), heirloom tomato and macroom buffalo mozzarella, sounds especially mouth-watering.
