Local Heroes: Blanco Niño Authentic Tortilleria

Blanco Nino

"Authentic Tortillas from Tipperary? Nah, that has to be a mistake!" Nope, rest assured, my local food hero of today, 'Blanco Niño', is nothing short of sheer brilliance. The founder of the company, Phil,  had a very simple idea: open up Dublin's first Taqueria. Unfortunately he was struggling to find real authentic corn tortillas in Europe, which is of course essential for making real good tacos. Luckily for us here…

The Old Convent

I rarely write about restaurants, as I'm more focused on making my own recipes of course, but for our birthday dinner me and my partner went up to The Old Convent in Clogheen, Tipperary, and it was just so fabulous that I simply had to share it with you all.
