It's Monday again already, which means it's time for our weekly round-up.
There's something for everyone in our latest weekly round-up, which has a particular focus on new menus that are popping up just in time for summer. Read on our full weekly round-up.
New Late Spring/Early Summer Menu at Sprout & Co, Dublin
Sprout & Co, one of our favourite salad bars in Dublin, has introduced three new menu items just in time for summer. The summer menu includes a basil chorizo salad, spring/summer falafel salad and, our personal favourite, buffalo roasted cauliflower with whipped feta and a lemon basil dressing. The new menu relies heavily on local products, including leaves grown at the Sprout & Co farm in Kildare, so you know you're getting seasonal, delicious food when you visit any of the Sprout kitchens.

Jam Park at Airside Retail Park Swords to open Friday, May 24th
Jam Park, Ireland's first adult playground, is set to open to the public this Friday. Owned by Bodytonic, the team behind Eatyard, Beatyard and more, Jam Park will offer food, drinks, crazy disco gold, ping pong, board games and more, so there will definitely be something available for everyone. Best of all, the food looks insanely good – think diner style with great Irish ingredients – with hot dogs made with Jane Russell sausages, Down & Dirty fries topped with St Tola cheese curds, Fivemiletown goat's cheese or chorizo, ice-cream sundaes and more all on offer.

Camile Thai Launches Compostable Packaging
Camile Thai has become the first restaurant in Europe to use compostable packaging for its takeaway food. Many customers often try to recycle packaging, but this new system allows it to be placed directly into a compost bin without even being washed so that it can break down and return to the earth quickly.
