Impeccably good sausage rolls with wonderful herbs, spices and flavour - set within a food stall market area of Dublin
Although this is essentially a market stall, the fact that I am adding this says something in itself about the pleasantness of the expeirence. With the market hall of St George’s Arcade in Dublin sits Lolly and Cooks. Within the space, there are obviously only so many items to choose from, however, having seen Anthony Bourdain have this on his layover visit and me being in Dublin for a weekend, it was a no brainer to try. Admittedly, my visit was following a few Guinnesses the night before and a 30 minute walk to get there on the Sunday am so I was quite peckish, however, I was frankly blown away by how good the cranberry sausage roll was.
It is microwaved for you on the spot, making the already light pastry that delightful warmth but crucially having the right amount of fluffiness with squidgy underside where the meat is but thankfully was not too oily as a result of the quick heat blast. The meat itself was amongst the best seasoned in a sausage roll I have had in a very long time, hence wishing to mention in this blog. It was so good in fact that I actually asked for the garlic sausage as well after in order to compare and go with the hot chocolate and frankly it was a nice break to spend £7 as opposed to the average £100+ for a large food experience. Of the two I think the cranberry is the clear winner but both are absolutely superb and would recommend this little option to anyone at anytime when hungry.
