For almost 20 years Cooke's Restaurant & Wine Bar has been serving up local fare to generations of Galwegians and holidaymakers.
Galway is known for many things — arts, culture, and its vibrant food scene holding its own on the international stage. We have enjoyed the benefits of this burgeoning foodie paradise for a few years now, with new places to eat springing up all around the city. Not to be outdone, there has been an explosion in the bar scene also. Throngs of bars line almost every street in the city, from traditional to exotic to the hidden gems only the locals know about. If you’re looking for the best Galway bars you certainly have a lot to choose from.
Food trends are pretty interesting if you are into that sort of thing. We have reached full saturation point with kale, quinoa, and avocado. Middle Eastern cuisine is now considered everyday, and the once mysterious coconut water has become available in the chilled drinks cabinet in all but the most rural of shops.
The Sodexo cleaning team at Bellanaboy Bridge Gas Terminal took home its first ever medal from the recent 2018 Sodexo Salon Culinaire, the annual staff culinary competition run by the food and facilities management company for its 3,700 chef and non-chef staff in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Monday July 30 will mark the opening of Galway’s newest social hub, The Yard Kitchen/Bar @ The House Hotel, guaranteed to be a hit with both guests and Galway locals. Located in Galway’s well known Latin Quarter, The House Hotel is excited to bring this new concept to Galway just in time for the Galway Races.
Abbeygate Street has, for a few years now, been the home of street food in Galway. While we may have lost several stalwarts in recent times — The Home Plate, Couch Potatas, and La Salsa — we have gained much more. This street has everything from authentic Mexican food to the very best falafel. There is a vegetarian cafe, an Italian restaurant, a chilli shack — and even a Asian supermarket and an American sweet shop.
PoppySeed Gourmet Cafés joined together the staff, suppliers, friends, and family who have helped it achieve 10 successful years in business this month at a birthday party held at its Clarinbridge daytime café-restaurant.
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.
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.
There is something hot happening in Ireland — Mexican food, one of the biggest food trends of recent years, has gone mainstream, and shows no signs of cooling down just yet.
