Last month we tasted our way around five of iPick’s restaurants in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Kennedy Town.
iPick is your new food and beverage social app to help you discover the best eats in town through friends and trusted sources. As well as plenty of food there were also prizes up for grabs for the best reviewers on iPick that evening, so our foodies were snapping their way around to find the ultimate food shot.
We kick started the tour at Kinsale with some fantastic tuna crudo, beef short rib and lump crab cakes served with a refreshing summer beer. Our second stop was only few metres down the road at Fish & Chick where we tried their signature eponymous dishes and super soft croquettes. Their quality chicken is marinated for 6 hours before being cooked on the rotisserie for that flavourful crispy skin.

Next we moved on to candle-lit Bistro du Vin, where owner Randy served perfect locally sourced pigeon and seasonal figs; rustic, quality food that our iPick reviewers just couldn’t get enough of. The undoubted show stopper certainly was their madeleines, served hot out of the oven.

We waddled over to Sunday’s Grocery, to find their epic chicken katsu sandos ready and waiting. Phones were out instantly as ultimately everything looks cool in this alchohol-oriented sandwich shop. The best quote from a reviewer was that this is simply ‘a man cave heaven’. You can’t go wrong with whiskey and sandwiches.

Deliriously high on food at this point, we rocked up at Shoreditch, a recent addition to the neighbourhood serving traditional British food, to try their succulent pork with crispy skin and sticky toffee pudding - a big warm hug to end the marathon tour.

We ended at Catch Next Door for an after-party to grab a nightcap and tried not to doze off into a week-long food coma.
