Even though we're all still practicing social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers.
We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland, so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around the country. Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.
Hang Dai Chinese, Dublin
If you’ve been craving the cracking Chinese food served up by chef Karl Whelan and his team at Hang Dai on Camden Street in Dublin, rejoice – they’re now offering a zero-contact collection and delivery service.
Available from Tuesday to Sunday between 5pm and 10pm, the menu will feature a mix of Hang Dai favourites and some new additions. Top of our wish list will be the sesame prawn sourdough toast with yuzu mayo, but we’re also looking forward to trying the fried kung pao chicken with three kinds of chilli.
A special set family meal is also available for €50, and includes a choice of starters and mains with rice for two adults, two kids’ meals and IceBergers for everyone. To order, call 01-5458888 or find Hang Dai on Deliveroo.
Andarl Farm, delivering nationwide
You might recognise the name Andarl Farm – the pork produced on this farm near Glenamaddy in Co Galway is a favourite with chefs around the country, who regularly name-check it on their menus.
The farm is run by Dave and Diana Milestone, who have always sold online but who have now expanded their range to include an Easter box for €40 and a home delivery box for €75. Contents vary, but include a mix of pork, lamb, beef and more. You can order at andarlfarm.ie.
