Jess Murphy and her west coast crew bring their ‘dirty’ Galway fare to Dublin for two nights only
[Dublin, Ireland] Hen’s Teeth is delighted to welcome the incredible Kai crew from Galway for a two-night only pop-up at their Dublin 8 restaurant on Friday & Saturday, 1 & 2 July.
Since 2011, Kai have used local, seasonal ingredients cooked intelligently to the west of Ireland and have earned a Michelin Bib Gourmand and a lot of love in Ireland and across the globe.
For the first weekend in July, they’re bringing a casual and tasty take to their favourite Galway ingredients at Hen’s Teeth. Think Inis Mór Crab with Liam’s Tomatillos, Fried Knocklara Zuchini with Hot Honey and Connemara Lobster Thermidor with Shepard’s Store.
And of course, a Buckfast & Pomegranate Slushies to wash it all down with. There might even be a Buckie hot sauce in the mix!
Where: Hen’s Teeth, Blackpitts, Dublin 8, D08A9FD
Booking: This is not ticketed or pre-paid. Please book through Hen’s Teeth on Open Table as normal
Kai Restaurant is nestled between the church and a gay bar down on Sea Road in Galway’s Westend. The building which was home to a florist before New Zealander Jess and Carlow’s Dave Murphy arrived in over 10 years ago and transformed the space into what it is today, Kai.
Kai is the Maori word for food and in 2011 they opened the door with a simple formula — high-quality produce, preferably organic or wild, sourced locally and cooked intelligently.
What’s in season will be on your plate.
