Foodie getaways would not be complete without eating food and drinks that the locals are in love with. Meat and potatoes are generally components of famous dishes in Dublin. Potatoes are the main ingredients in Irish cuisine. They are generally used to thicken stews and enrich the flavor of various meals.
The most typical dish of Dublin is Coddle, which consists of sausage, bacon, potato, and onion. To eat this dish like a local would, try it in the winter (although you can eat it year-round). This dish is generally served with sliced soda bread. Another delectable dish that is popular in Dublin is Irish stew, which consists of lamb, potato, onion, and parsley. For breakfast, try the delectable “Full Irish Breakfast”, which consists of sausage, bacon, fried eggs, and black sausage.
You will need to pair your delectable foods with the typical drinks in the region. Taste the typical beer in the region – stout, which is a dark beer made using roasted malt or roasted barley, hops, water and yeast. Irish coffee is also a must when visiting, as it is the perfect combination of whiskey, sugar, black, coffee, and whipped cream. Any drink you try in Dublin is sure to be palatable.
