The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | EATING OUT -

The “street­food dis­cotheque” on a kitsch roof ter­race opens Wed­nes­day to Sun­day evenings, with fes­ti­val favourites such as fish ta­cos, burg­ers (Beef Patty La Belle any­one?), beef brisket sand­wiches, and tasty cock­tails, in­clud­ing ba­con Bloody Marys, espresso mar­ti­nis and a rolling roster of ex­cel­lent DJs. – larger than most Ir­ish ta­pas bars – and a combo of ex­cel­lent Ir­ish pro­duce mixed with im­ported Span­ish spe­cial­i­ties make for a great ad­di­tion to the Mar­ble City food scene. It does jus­tice to the much-man­gled patatas bravas (¤6), while other menu high­lights in­clude ex­cel­lent mus­sels in salsa verde (¤10), Sala­man­can chorizo cooked in lo­cal High­bank cider (¤7.95) and an in­ter­est­ing Basque goats-cheese ice cream (¤9).


Strand­hill, Co Sligo, 071 9122938, ¤ Jane and Myles Lam­berth’s cute café on the seafront in Strand­hill has the per­fect view of the popular surf break out­side. And they’ve man­aged to trans­plant that laid back surf vibe back inside their lit­tle café and bak­ery. The re­laxed, sea-shack at­mos­phere be­lies the high qual­ity cook­ing: there’s slow roasted lamb shoul­ders, all man­ner of bar­be­qued meats, sal­ads sam­bos and more. Breads and cakes are baked in-house us­ing or­ganic eggs and you can take away a taste of the west, with Bur­ren Smoke­house plates, breads, cakes and home­made sauces such as sriracha and hot-wings sauce.
