Pang and the Craving is Gone! New Vietnamese Restaurant Delivers Dublin’s Next Healthy Obsession
Already an established food trend in ahead of the food curve cities of New York, Melbourne and Sydney, Dublin’s first rice paper roll restaurant Pang is now open on Kevin Street Lower, Dublin 2.
Reinventing the traditional Vietnamese rice paper roll, Pang delivers a menu that is packed with punchy flavours, quirky ingredients combos and sassy sauces.
A fresh, tasty and speedy lunch option, the six varieties of rice paper rolls (€4) are all made fresh daily with gluten free vermicelli noodles rice noodles and mixed leaves.
Pang signature rolls include Satay Chicken, Peking Duck, Smoked Salmon, and Prawn & Mango, all served with lip-smackingly good, house made dipping sauces like peanut hoisin and basil lime.
For veggies there’s Sriracha roasted Sweet Potato, and a Teryaki Tofu roll served with a Nam Jim sauce that will light up your taste buds.
Don’t know many rolls to order? The rule of thumb is: one’s a snack, two is lunch and three is dinner. You can also opt for the Pang Lunch Box, a combo of two rolls and a side for €10.
Along with their signature rice paper rolls, Pang is reimaging other traditional Vietnamese dishes too, Banh Mi (€6) and Pho (€8).
Choose from Ginger Beef Brisket or Roast Sweet Potato Banh Mi, that are both served in a lighter than light, crispy baguette filled with fresh herbs, house-made pickles and a hoisin mayo.
Feeling the chill? Warm up with Chicken or Vegan Pho, a light, aromatic Vietnamese noodle soup.
Sides (€3) include a choice of Blanched Edamame, Wakame Miso Soup and a zingy ginger and tahini dressed Kale Slaw.
Based on Lower Kevin’s Street, just five minutes’ walk from St. Stephen’s Green and seconds from Camden Street and DIT Kevin Street, as well as the option to sit-down and takeaway, Pang is also available for delivery and corporate catering via Deliveroo and the Lunch Team.
Restaurateur Barry Wallace is the man behind Pang, who after opening several restaurants in Belgium and London has partnered with chef turned entrepreneur Colm O’Brien to bring his latest concept to his home town.
On his vision for the new exciting opening Barry says: “We want Pang lunch boxes to incorporate a diversity of flavours, textures and ingredients so your lunch box has more dimensions to it. Three different rolls is like three salads in one box with three different dips/dressings to go with it.
Like sushi it’s a chilled product that’s super healthy. This is creative nourishment with Vietnamese culinary essence at its core
Entering into an already excellent sector we aim to become a big part of fast casual healthy eating nationwide and we will deliver ‘Vietnomnoms’ up and down the country!”
Located on 6-11 Kevin Street Lower, Dublin 2, Pang is open from 12-9pm, Monday to Saturday.
