Sundays on Sandy Road

Fri, Apr 22, 2016

The Maldron Hotel on Sandy Road has had various incarnations. The Courtyard by Marriot Hotel, as it was many moons ago, changed to the Pillo Hotel and most recently became a Maldron, sister hotel to the Oranmore Maldron. A modern building on the the fringes of the city, this is a landmark with its glazed exterior and its location opposite The Menlo Park. The glass frontage points you towards the Headford Road, and inside, the high-vaulted reception space combines international airport chic and modern design which has not dated since opening as The Courtyard over a decade ago. Set back from the busy road that encircles the city, it also has the advantage of being just minutes from the centre of town with free underground parking.

East meets West at Wa Cafe

Thu, Apr 14, 2016

Wa Cafe is bijou and bright, a 15 seat sushi restaurant tucked away down by the docks that was opened by Yoshimi Hayakawa on 8/8/2008. This date is no coincidence, the number eight is considered a very lucky number in Japanese culture. It was indeed lucky for us. At Wa the rice is soft, sticky, and delicious, and the food is authentically Japanese, from sushi rolls, miso soup, and bento boxes to green teas. The menu is short with a rotating choice of specials ensuring there is always something new, with a good choice for vegetarians.

The Galleon — a piece of Salthill history

Thu, Apr 07, 2016

Before vegetarians were introduced to Ireland and before gluten-free was a thing, there was The Galleon. Situated in the heart of Salthill, just a short walk from the Promenade, this restaurant is always busy. It is kept bustling throughout the summer with the tourists who throng this much loved coastal village and it is just as popular with the local residents. The relaxed, cosy, atmosphere and welcoming staff ensure it also enjoys a large share of repeat custom, keeping it full through the winter months.

The Galleon is in the ownership of the third generation of the same family since it opened its doors as The Galleon Grill in 1965, beginning under the ownership of Jimmy Lydon and on to the current owner since 2009, Roger O’Sullivan. Not only is The Galleon a family business, it is also one of the most family-friendly restaurants in the city. The smallest diners are well catered for with a good menu of children's favourites. While the adults eat, the young guests are provided with crayons to colour with and are presented with a chocolate gold coin from The Galleon’s treasure chest on leaving. There is a separate area to the rear of the restaurant which can be used as a function area, catering for parties of up to 30 people, perfect for celebrating confirmation, Communions, and special occasions.

Eggs — it’s the way you cook them

Thu, Mar 31, 2016

Mention cholesterol and the first food that springs to mind is eggs. Eggs are a much criticised food; however it seems like this criticism was misplaced as it is saturated fat that is the greatest culprit in raising blood cholesterol. The confusion occurred as eggs do contain dietary cholesterol, but this seems to have little or no effect on blood cholesterol.

Far from being a dietary no-no, eggs are a versatile, nutritious, and cheap food. An average egg contains approximately 80 calories, it is a good source of protein and vitamins A, B, D, and E; it will also provide you with 100 per cent of your daily selenium requirements, as well as containing iron and zinc. Although it does contain fat, about two thirds of this fat is healthy unsaturated fat.

Holy Guacamole

Thu, Mar 24, 2016

Famously, USA Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, is no fan of anything originating from Mexico. We in Ireland, however, feel differently about this. Mexican food, one of the biggest food trends of the last decade, shows no signs of slowing down here just yet. Just a few short years ago we got what passes for Mexican food from a yellow box in the supermarket. The finished product often appeared to have already been eaten by someone else. If you attempted to make your own, shopping for chili peppers was an adventure, avocados were an oddity and tortillas were totally out of the question. Latin-American foods such as nachos, chips and salsa, fajitas, quesadillas, burritos and beans are now an everyday sight on the dinner tables of Ireland and have become as common place as bacon and cabbage.
