4 excellent eats to try at Yuleyard - from cheese toasties to dim sum

‘All I want for Christmas is fooood…’

SUMMERTIME FAVOURITE EATYARD has had a festive makeover in the run up to Christmas, re-opening as Yuleyard on November 22. 

With Christmas films, live music, exciting cocktails at the Schweppes Alchemy Bar and festive food vendors, Yuleyard is a winter wonderland right in the middle of Dublin city. 

Here are four food vendors available at Yuleyard even the Grinch wouldn’t want to miss. 

1. Lucky Tortoise Dumpling Company

Swap mince pies and roasted chestnuts (temporarily, of course) for fresh dim sum made from scratch at the Lucky Tortoise Dumpling Company.

With locally sourced ingredients – including Dublin Bay prawns – and authentic ingredients imported from all over China, Thailand and Japan, it’s safe to say that you won’t find these delicious dishes anywhere else. 

2. Flamin’ Marvellous

What’s a Christmas market without a Bratwurst sausage? Served on a freshly baked roll, these free-range Irish sausages truly are one-of-a-kind. 

Flamin’ Marvellous was founded by a group of friends in 2013 at Howth Market. Five years later, their flamin’ marvellous sausage is better than ever. 

3. Box Burger

A resident vendor at Eatyard, the variety of toppings and twists at Box Burger mean there’s always something new to try. 

From the Mexican-style burger (beef, jalapeno, chipotle, guacamole and sour cream, in case you’re wondering) to a classic cheese burger, your mouth will be watering as soon as you look at the menu. 

4. Meltdown 

There are very few things in life that a cheese toastie can’t fix. There are even fewer things a Meltdown cheese toastie can’t fix. 

Their Christmas-themed sandwich, with extra mature cheddar, creamy brie, crumbled blue cheese, plum and apple sauce on sourdough bread, is the one thing we want to find under our tree this Christmas morning, to be honest. 

Embrace those festive feels with a winter cocktail at the Schweppes Alchemy Bar at Yuleyard, Eatyard’s seasonal makeover. The event runs from November 22 – December 23, and includes tasty Christmas eats, crafting workshops, food demos and more.
