11. April 2012: Restaurant BANG

| April 13, 2012 | 0 Comments

We were welcomed with wholegrain bread which was still warm and was very crunchy and fit well with the butter. Definitely a nice start especially as the bread was delicious.

As a starter I had a “free range hen’s egg, deep fried, house black pudding, pancetta, tomato relish, wild garlic mayo” (EUR 9.50). The deep fried egg was interesting in taste as the interior of the egg was still liquid and went well with the crunchy crust. The black pudding with the pancetta and the tomato relish was a great combination which was surprising and good in taste.

As a main course I had the “rare breed pork (Tamworth) confit belly, caramelised squid, barely, little gem” (EUR 26.00). At first I was looking at the plate and it looked very appealing to me – and then when I tried it, it was even more appealing. The combination of the pork with lentils and the caramlised squid was great. The pork was tender and at the same time crunchy which made it very interesting.

To the main course I enjoyed “Irish rocket and parmesan salad with balsamic dressing” (EUR 3.50). The rocket salad was good. It lacked a bit of parmesan but with the balsamico dressing it was a good and light salad.

For desert the “70% dark chocolate mousse, blood orange sorbet, hazelnut crumble” was definitely delicious. The dark chocolate mousse was great but it was also pretty heavy but that was balanced off very well by the blood orange sorbet which was great which made me order …

… yet another scoop of sorbet which was brought to me without any hesitation or remark or even billing it. The single courses cost together something around 45 EUR but if you eat between 5:30pm and 7:00pm you get to take the pre-theatre menu for EUR 26.00 per person only. A great deal, I must say!

Also the prices for the drinks are absolutely fair, a double espresso accounting for EUR 2.75, a bottle of sparkling water EUR 4.50 and 500ml red wine (Rondan) accounting for EUR 24.25. I also asked for a Grappa and they had one (EUR 5.00) – it was okay but definitely not their strongest point but I guess that is okay given that I am in Ireland and not in Italy.

The service was very friendly, courteous and just made you feel welcome as a guest. Great. Only the refilling of the wine and water glasses had to be done by ourselves but again that was okay as the atmosphere of the BANG restaurant is also very relaxed and young somehow, so it is not such a big deal we had to do it ourselves.

Overall, the restaurant BANG is a great place. Their motto is “great quality food at affordable prices” and I can say that they fully fulfill their motto. The food is great, the service is very nice, the atmosphere is appealing and last but not least everything at very affordable prices. If you are in Dublin and are looking for a delicious dinner in a nice atmosphere for fair prices, the BANG restaurant is definitely the place to go.
