I spent a wonderful four days in Dublin, after 15 months working in S. Korea teaching English. So far almost 3 weeks in, I have been in eternal bliss and Dublin was a great jumping off point.
I found myself wondering the streets of the thousand year old city with a friend, when we stumbled upon a restaurant called Bear. I will do another post on Bear soon. Anyhow, the manager at Bear told us about their sister restaurant Crack Bird where they served free range fried chicken....ok so they had us at fried chicken.
Crack Bird is an awesome little place that has a very organic and minimalistic atmosphere, but the food, the food is exceptional.
They do not serve soft drinks or french fries here. Instead, you can choose from one of four of their delicious homemade lemonades. We ordered the Rhubarb lemonade and it was refreshingly fantastic, served in a large mason jar.
Then came the fantastic yummy stuff. Reminiscing about it is making my mouth water. Le beau and I ordered the soy (glutenfree) fried chicken wings served with thyme honey sauce and the habanero wings.
Since they do not serve 'chips' aka french fries we ordered the hand-rolled croquettes.
All sauces are made in house and the prices are very reasonable. For two people, we spent €25.
If you are looking for a great place to eat out while in Dublin, do not pass up Crack Bird, located at 60 Dame Street, Dublin, Ireland. It would be the best thing you ever did.
