A Burger Joint with a Conscience? BuJo, Sandymount

Bujo burger Dublin

Since reviewing Bunsen and Wowburger a few years back, I wasn't expecting to find another burger place worth writing home about. Claiming to have found the best burger in a city is always controversial territory because everyone has their own favourite and most of the time Bunsen would be cited as the no1 go-to place.

Review: Storyboard, Dublin 8

Storyboard cafe Dublin

Exactly a week after I had eaten in Storyboard, Catherine Cleary wrote about it in the Irish Times and titled her review 'This is the best cafe food I've eaten in Ireland'. This was over 4 months ago and shows how bad of a blogger I've been lately. Yes, I'm only writing about my visit now.

French Style Cakes in a Dublin Institution: Bewley's, Grafton Street

The day Bewley's reopened I passed by and saw people queueing outside like it was some trendy temporary pop-up café that would disappear any minute. I guess this is what happens when a Dublin institution closes for so many years.

Review: Kimchi Hophouse, Dublin 1

So the first semester of my masters wasn't all sweat, blood and tears after all... We actually had a fun practical exercise to do in groups: creating a 'Global in the local' food experience, researching a global cuisine and bringing the class for a meal in a Dublin restaurant. My group chose M&L Chinese (I may have suggested my favourite Chinese restaurant to my peers) but the group that nailed it for me focused on Korean cuisine and organised a meal in Kimchi Hophouse on Parnell Street.

48 Hours in Copenhagen

You might know that this trip wasn't my first time in Denmark and that I've already done a little guide on where to eat in Copenhagen. Well this time I decided to offer a little getaway to the Danish city to Mr. FFID as a Christmas present.
