Whole Food Dining in Dublin (part 2)

Whole Food Dining in Dublin (part 2)

I live in Dublin 8. I love Dublin 8. And since The Fumbally opened their second premises over a year ago (the original is still round the corner at the Dublin Food Co Op), I love the neighbourhood even more. The Fumbally is kind of indescribable, but I’ll try. It’s housed in a large commercial lot on a street that isn’t renowned for its character. It’s decor is recycled, upcycled, vintage, shabby chic, with large communal tables, a huge feature wall completely covered with random paintings and posters, open storage areas for all the veg and dried goods for everyone to see (and marvel- oh the wall of veg), an old piano, windowsills with golden Virgin Marys, and an open plan kitchen where you can watch the chefs prepare your food. Basically, it’s top fecking class!
But it’s not the decor and design that is The Fumbally’s selling point. It’s their food. They have a general ethos of locally sourced and organic where possible, and a team of chefs that are inspired and daring; You really get a carefully prepared platter every time you eat in there. It is whole food at its finest.

Breakfast Highlight: Everything-Free Granola
It’s wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free. It’s vegan and it’s paleo. It is served with coconut yoghurt. So unless you’re allergic to  fresh fruit and cinnamon, this is the job, hi!

Lunch/Brunch Highlight: Avocado Toast

If you can think of a better way to spend your Saturday afternoon than with a slice of rustic sourdough topped with the guts of a full avocado, chopped tomatoes, chilli, basil, salt, pepper, and olive oil, then I wanna hear it and it better be damn good, coz honestly, there is no better way to spend your Saturday afternoons. The Fumbally knows how to do avocado on toast. I try to replicate it, but they have some secret special jazzle, and it’s a deal breaker.

Honourable Mention Uimhir a hAon: The Nut Butter

I don’t think it’s on the menu. I think it’s technically made as a condiment for their INCREDIBLE-LOOKING sandwiches that I still haven’t tried in all these months. But sometimes when I go there and I ask for nut butter, I just might be lucky enough that one of the crew  will have prepared some and will serve a little ramekin for me to have with my toast. Over the last few months I’ve had:

Candied Walnut

Cashew (Light) and Peanut (Dark)

Chilli Peanut

Garlicky Peanut

And Just Plain Delicious Old Peanut

Honourable Mention Uimhir a Dó: The Wall O’ Veg

I want this to be in my home, but alas, even I can’t get through that much veg in one week.

The Fumbally is located on Clanbrassil Street, Dublin 8, and opens Mon-Fri 8-5 and Saturday 10-5. Their website is here if you wanna check out their beautiful photos and their up-to-date blog.
