Irish Staple: Delicious Brown Bread

Irish Staple: Delicious Brown Bread
Somehow Irish food has gotten the reputation as being bland. While I can’t say that every meal I’ve had in Dublin has been great, I can honestly say that most of them have been above average, and never bland! Local products such as Irish smoked salmon, artisanal cheeses, and brown bread are among my favorite Irish staples. However, not all brown bread is created equal, so here’s where to find the best kinds in and around Dublin. First of all, an introduction to brown bread. This...

Where to Find Pizza in Dublin

Where to Find Pizza in Dublin
I am currently on vacation in Sicily for a week and I’ve eaten some fantastic pizza. The Italians have brought their culinary staples all over the globe – and Dublin is no exception. To find a good slice, you need to know where to look, what chains offer quality pizzas, and what to avoid. There are some ingredients to pizza that can’t be copied – such as the water that goes into the dough. But other ingredients such as quality olive oil, creamy buffalo mozzarella, and fresh...

Tomsilav Martinovic Opens Darlinghurst Restaurant

Tomsilav Martinovic Opens Darlinghurst Restaurant
Chef Tomislav Martinovic has returned from an eight-year stint in the United Kingdom to open a Darlinghurst restaurant which bears his name. The mix of back-to-basics fare and high-tech methodology is an intriguing one. Tomislav cites the rather common textures of Kraft cream cheese, salt and vinegar chips, and Yogo dessert amongst his muses. Yet the menu delights in pairing the unusual, such as scotch fillet served with grilled mango and duck breast with olive oil sponge. This is an experience for...

Red or White? Ely Wine Bar in Dublin

Red or White? Ely Wine Bar in Dublin
Dublin is a city full of pubs and great places to grab a pint of Guinness. But what if you’re in the mood for something on the lighter side, or you’d prefer softer background music to live guitar? The answer is Ely Winebar. Located right in the center of the city, Ely is a haven from all the other louder watering holes. When I first discovered Ely I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen it before. I had walked past its Georgian exterior many times and never noticed the restaurant...

Dublin Restaurant Report: Chez Max

Dublin Restaurant Report: Chez Max
When I first moved to Dublin in 2007, friends who were also interested in food always asked me, ‘have you been to Chez Max yet?’ This French brasserie is located just outside of Dublin Castle, and for some reason, it always went under my radar when I was planning a night out. Then, they opened another brasserie, also called Chez Max, on Baggot Street near my apartment. I walk by this restaurant almost every day on my walk into town, and the chalkboard is full of temptations. One night...

Beautiful Breakfast at Circular Quay’s City Extra

Beautiful Breakfast at Circular Quay’s City Extra
By night Circular Quay is a hive of activity, with cafes spilling onto the sidewalk. Arrive in the morning however and it’s a different story. I’ve often wondered whether the people of Sydney actually eat breakfast, as it’s often hard to find a place serving before work. Thankfully though City Extra is open 24 hours a day. While my husband and I went there because there was no other breakfast option in close proximity, we were pleasantly surprised by our meals. My husband raved about his double...

Edinburgh’s Best Mexican Cuisine: Garibaldi’s

Edinburgh’s Best Mexican Cuisine: Garibaldi’s
Edinburgh has a few Mexican Restaurants, and I don’t like most of them.  Mexican is one of my favourite cuisines, so I’m rather particular, and few places make the cut.  My preferred haunt, though, is an unlikely choice:  the cheesy and somewhat offputting underground joint, Garibaldi’s. The Venue Right, you should read this before going, because otherwise you might not make it to the meal!  First of all, this place is easy to miss.  It’s on Hanover just north of George,...

Sumptuous Seafood at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar

Sumptuous Seafood at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar
Circular Quay is a treasure trove of Restaurants, so when I’m in the area I always like to try somewhere new. My craving for good seafood last night saw me making a stop at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar. While the entrees looked delicious, sadly my husband and I were running a little short on time. We settled on our mains and wine by the glass and soaked up the atmosphere while waiting for our meals. The Oyster Bar is big on that. I rarely dine alfresco, put off as I am by the smokers that tend to abound,...

Rainy Day in Dublin? 5 Cozy Cafes

Rainy Day in Dublin? 5 Cozy Cafes
If I wake up and look out my window, and there are blue skies as far as the eye can see, I always pack my umbrella. That’s just part of Dublin weather – clouds sweep in from the west and just as quickly can be gone out to sea. If you forget your umbrella, a sudden burst of rain can leave you uncomfortable and drenched for the day – unless you find a cozy place for a coffee and a sweet pick me up. Here are my favorite places to grab a table by the window, and watch the rain pass while keeping...
