Freshly cooked food to take away for busy people on the go are among the deliciously simple food offerings at Ballindooley Stores, all freshly prepared in store by All Ireland silver award winning chef and local resident Orla Corcoran.
This talented Castlegar native has a number of awards to her name, including the prestigious top award for her dish at the Connemara Mussel festival in Tullycross, and the silver medal as the runner-up in the Catex Chef Ireland for the Senior Fish Dish Compitition.
Before joining Ballindooley Stores Corcoran worked with a number of top restaurants in the Galway area. She now brings this expertise at producing similar top class nutritious meals, for taking away, by busy commuters, and customers of the shop on the Headford Road, from 7am to 7pm each day.
Due to busy lifestyles so many of us are rushing around and it is often difficult to have a sit-down meal at suitable times when restaurants are open. This can lead to bad eating habits or settling for what is often poorer quality fast food which can, sometimes, be packed with preservatives.
Not so with the delicious and diverse dishes that Corcoran is cooking up for the customers at Ballindooley Stores which are all freshly prepared from natural ingredients with no preservatives.
Delicious restaurant quality meal options include 100 per cent chicken breast that is breaded in the store's kitchen; tasty six ounce burgers made with 100 per cent Irish beef; and mouthwatering bacon and cabbage or turkey and ham.
The home-made lasagne, shepherds pie, fish pie, and chicken pie are all freshly made, and salmon dishes are among Corcoran's specialities. She also prides herself in the selection of cold deli meals including ham, beef, and chicken which are all cooked fresh and with no preservatives, while the coleslaw and potato salads are also prepared daily.
This is food that is fast, yet fresh, and preservative free. It is a healthy option, varied, and at the right price but with best nutrition for our busy lives.
