There's more good news for the food scene with the arrival of MacDaddy in Dublin's Temple Bar. And it just might be carb heaven.
It's the brainchild of Joey Somers, who also own Doughboys, a New York-inspired sandwich shop. The impact of Covid meant the Temple Bar branch of Doughboys had to close in March 2020 so Somers diversified and came up with MacDaddy.
Located at 5 Crown Alley in Temple Bar, it offers a packed menu of casual, comfort food favourites with a twist. Mac and cheese is the star, with options including Cheese Monster, an all-cheddar mac and cheese (€12), Pig Mac with pulled pork & slaw (€16.50) and the Winger with buffalo honey butter, popcorn chicken and blue cheese ranch dressing (€16.50).
There’s also an array of fried chicken options including four buttermilk sandos (€9.95) and popcorn chicken (€8.50) as well as waffle fries (€3.95). If you have a sweet tooth, you'll want to check out the deep-fried Oreos with white chocolate dipping sauce (€6.50).
MacDaddy is open for meals to-go Wednesday to Sunday 4pm to 9pm or if you live within 5km, there's delivery available via Deliveroo.
