After Paris, I jet-setted myself off to Ireland in a reverse-Joyce to meet up with two wonderful friends in Dublin.
Ireland was gorgeous, gorgeous – but the fashion and food was decidedly ‘pub-friendly’. Given my love of tailgating/bar food, that was divine, but looks a bit less elegant straight after Paris. We spent two days solid eating, wandering and drinking beer. Divinity.
Two things I loved while eating Dublin – the first being the smoked haddock omelette that I had for my first dinner. It was truly incredible – I love smoked fish, and it had some delicious edam cheese gooey and melted on top with fresh parsley. In true eating for two, for one fashion, I also engorged on some incredible buffalo wings treating myself to second dinner. Up until recently, there was nowhere in Canberra that served my most favouritest of unhealthy foods – and I had to make them myself. Buffalo chicken and haddock omelette is something that I will be repeating at home.
For our final dinner in Dublin, we took ourselves to the stunning Winding Stair restaurant, and it was such a treat. Beautiful atmosphere, right on the water and set up above street level looking down on Dublin. En route, we even found a stumbling drunk who nearly went over a bridge! So authentic! I had the most delicious, incredible Atlantic cured salmon, with raw beetroot and a dill sauce over a thin, crispy waffle. Next time I ever want to impress anyone ever ever I’m serving them [whatever] over waffles, so fancy!
Some of these photos might be my friend Fran’s. I’ve only had my camera for about 6 months, so if its pretty (or if I’m in it, obv) its probably not me taking the shots. Credit where credit is due.
