Vietnom: Vegetarian Street Food Truck in Stoneybatter

Vietnom Dublin

Disclaimer: This is an independent review, I paid for my food and drinks

In Portland, which I visited last year, food trucks are everywhere and giving the opportunity to young chefs to test the ground and make themselves a reputation before they commit to signing a lease that they can't really afford when they're starting off. Will red tape regulations ever be lifted to allow the development of street food in Dublin? I seriously hope so.

Recipe: Mussel Risotto #SP

As previously mentioned I’ve teamed up with Bord Bia again this year for their #FlexYourMussels campaign during which during which I’m sharing my love for mussels.
Besides being delicious, mussels are very affordable, easy to prepare and a great source of protein and iron. That’s plenty of good reasons to cook them at home, don’t you think?

Coffee & Pastries at Proper Order Coffee Co.

Disclaimer: this is an independent review, I paid for my coffee and pastries on each visit.

If you follow me on Instagram (@frenchfoodieindublin) you probably know from my stories that from time to time I like to indulge in buttery pastries and coffee in Proper Order Coffee in the morning. I'm very continental, what can I say?

Review: Urbanity, Smithfield, Dublin 7

Urbanity Smithfield

Disclaimer: This is an independent review and I paid for my food

Mr. FFID and I have started going on 'breakfast dates' from time to time, just to get a change from the usual morning routine of porridge at home. We don't do it that often but when we do we look for a place that isn't too far from our home and respective workplaces.

I was walking through the city centre at lunchtime not too long ago and ended up in a seafood restaurant… by myself. I usually hate eating out alone but on this occasion the sun was shining, it lifted my mood and I just wanted to treat myself to a huge bowl of moules marinières with fries while sipping a glass of Picpoul. It’s the simple things, isn’t it?

Lisbon City Guide: Where to Eat and Drink

While my mother is Portuguese I'm ashamed to say that I've only been to Portugal twice. The first time was about ten years ago, Mr. FFID and I spent a week in Lisbon doing all the main attractions, enjoying day trips to Caiscais and Sintra as well as gorging on cheap food and drinks. We loved it and always said we would come back.
