I’ve attended a couple a functions with The Taste in Solder & Ko, located on Georges Street, and its always left me wanting more. I was there on their launch night & more recently for a bloggers lunch. Now as much as I like my beer I do enjoy good food. Soder & Ko more than deliver in both areas.
So on August Bank Holiday Sunday I decided we should enjoy “Date Day” by starting off with a good brunch. After a gruelling bus journey that took nearly two hours, needless to say we were famished, straight to the restaurant we went. We were greeted by a very friendly welcome and were seated at a comfortable booth at the front of the restaurant. If you haven’t been there before its quite a large building with an airy feel to it. It boasts a big bar where the staff concoct some of the nicest cocktails I’ve ever enjoyed. Also a really nice craft beer selection too. Just beyond the bar is the kitchen area where all the magic happens. There is a lovely garden area upstairs where I’ve seen artists play some relaxing music.
So after perusing the menu we finally started with some cocktails, would`ve been rude not too. I ordered the Gurka Grass & Wayne went for Mjunka Martini. Both were delicious.
After reading the food menu we finally decided what to eat. We chose to share a few dishes so we both got to enjoy the experience and neither of us felt hard done by. So first up came the chicken wings. Hand on heart these are the best wings I ever tried ( besides Wayne’s home cooked ones). They are spicy and crispy, a great combo.
Next up came the dim sum. After trying this at the blogger lunch I couldn’t wait to get back and try some more. We ordered the king prawn dumplings that were steamed in a bamboo basket and the Pot Stickers which are crispy chicken and scallion dumplings. These were oh so tasty. Wayne loved the prawns while my favourite was the pot stickers.
Shortly after the steamed buns came out. These are a firm favourite with customer so I believed, and I understand why. Wayne had the breakfast bun, egg,bacon, sausage and house sauce, while I munched away on the crab, miso mayo and spring onion bun. These were both extremely tasty.
After such an amazing feed, we finished our meal with two coffees to try avoid the impending food coma. Our experience of Soder & Ko was extremely relaxing and friendly and we’re looking forward to our next visit already! Check out www.soderandko.ie for more info.
