Looking for something to do this week? We have a few ideas for you.
Read on to find out about events taking place around the country this week, new menus, festivals, news and more.
Ramen pop-up at Avoca Ballsbridge
Avoca has launched its first Ballsbridge pop-up for 2020 and it's a doozy: the counter will be serving up a range of aromatic ramen dishes, including firecracker chicken, Korean beef brisket and vegan kimchi. We're excited to see another ramen spot open up, but you'll only have two months to try this iteration before Avoca introduces its next pop-up. Each bowl is priced at €10 and you can try yours daily from 11am.
Vegan workshops with Ciara Brennan and Rebecca Steele
7pm-9pm at Green Onion Café, Rutland Street, Limerick on Wednesday, January 22nd
Chef Ciara Brennan and nutritional therapist Rebecca Steele are teaming up this week to host a vegan workshop in Limerick City. The class will showcase three plant-based dishes that guests will get to taste, plus ticket price includes welcome refreshments, nutritional advice, and a copy of the recipes and a jar of Happy Food at Home pesto to take home. Tickets can be purchased here from €45 per person.
Sprezzatura launches Veganuary menu
Veganuary is everywhere right now and it seems that Sprezzatura is no different. The Italian-inspired restaurant in Dublin 8 has launched new vegan options for January, including tomato and basil rigatoni, tomato carpaccio, and wild mushroom tagliatelle. For more info, click here.
Kellogg's launches cereal for kids containing fruit and vegetables
W.K. Kellogg by Kids, a new cereal from breakfast giant Kellogg's, is putting nutrition at the forefront of the most important meal of the day. The cereal comes in two flavour varieties – strawberry, apple and carrot, and blueberry, apple and beetroot – and has been developed in consultation with expert Ciara Atwell to ensure that even fussy eaters enjoy this new cereal which is vegan, contains no added sugar and has no artificial colours, sweeteners or flavours. Find it in your local supermarket for €3.49 per pack.
Flahavan's adds two new flapjack flavours
Another new entry to the breakfast (and snack) arena. Flahavan's Flapjacks have released two new flavours for 2020: lemon and poppyseed, and dark chocolate and orange. Both flavours are vegan, while the bars offer slow-releasing energy that is sure to help you through that mid-afternoon slump. These two new additions bring the range up to seven flavours in total, so head to your local store to try them out.
