In our quest to explore the diverse culinary landscape of Dublin, we continue our journey through the city, speaking with internationals who call this vibrant place home. These individuals generously shared their favorite restaurants representing their countries of origin. As we take another bite out of the world, let’s see where the flavors of international cuisine have led us.
1. Boston, USA – Captain America’s
Our first stop takes us across the Atlantic to the heart of America, where a Boston native recommended Captain America’s as his top choice. Our first interviewee is a student in Dublin, and he raves about this restaurant for its incredible student deals and mouthwatering milkshakes. With a menu that offers a taste of the American classics, Captain America’s is the go-to spot for anyone looking for a bite of the U.S.A. right here in Dublin. Captain America’s can be found at 44 Grafton Street Dublin 2.
2. Brazil – Bah33
From South America’s largest country, Brazil, we arrive at Bah33. Interviewee number 2, who hails from Brazil, couldn’t be happier with this recommendation. Bah33 is an all-you-can-eat Brazilian restaurant that captures the essence of authentic Brazilian cuisine. From savory meats to traditional dishes, this restaurant offers a feast that will transport your taste buds straight to Brazil’s vibrant culinary scene. Bah33 can be found at Unit 3-5, Royal Hibernian Way, Dawson St, Dublin 2.
3. Afghanistan – DGrill
The flavors of Afghanistan come alive at DGrill, thanks to the recommendation of Afghani interviewee. He notes that DGrill serves up true Afghan cuisine with a diverse menu at great prices. This hidden gem provides a delightful opportunity to savor the rich and flavorful dishes of Afghanistan without leaving Dublin. DGrill can be found at 40 Aungier St, Dublin 2.
4. Mexico – El Grito & Acapulco
Our final destination is Mexico, and it appears that Mexican cuisine has not one but two ambassadors in Dublin. Our final interview & Mexican native, enthusiastically recommends two restaurants for distinct reasons. Firstly, she suggests El Grito, and her must-try dish from there is the “La Gringa.” This recommendation promises an explosion of flavors reminiscent of Mexico’s vibrant street food culture. El Grito has two locations and can be found at 20 Mountjoy Square E, Mountjoy, Dublin 1 & 137 Rathmines Rd Lower, Rathmines, Dublin 6.
The second & final recommendation is Acapulco, where Mondays and Tuesdays are declared as “Taco Days.” The reason is clear – their tacos are absolutely fantastic. If you’re in Dublin and craving authentic Mexican tacos, make sure to visit Acapulco on the right day to experience the magic. Acapulco can be found at 7 South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2.
Dublin’s global community has spoken, and their culinary choices reflect the city’s rich cultural diversity. From the heart of America to the mountains of Afghanistan and the beaches of Brazil, and of course, the vibrant streets of Mexico, Dublin offers a world tour of flavors for all food enthusiasts.
