Dining with Oscar Wilde!

"After a good dinner, one can forgive everybody. Even ones own relatives" Oscar Wilde

I recently dined in Oscars Bar & Kitchen in Merrion Square in Dublin and learned a little more about one of Ireland's most famous exports, Oscar Wilde, while also enjoying a great meal that I want to share with you guys. I was so impressed with the experience, that I have an exciting offer so you too can enjoy it;

 Get 10% off your bill by quoting 'Blunt Blonde' on arrival!

It is a causal setting but it is not to be mistaken for a bar that serves food, it is an inventive kitchen trying new things and doing it very well.

I decided to try one of their specialty G&Ts served in a large goblet glass to start. I have to say this is how I like a G&T served.
As we flicked through the menu picking up on dishes such as crab and scallops we munched on crusty warm bread with olive oil and balsamic.
For my first choice I opted for the tea cured salmon which is a dish that intrigued me. It was lovely and light and packed full of flavour. The frozen cucumber was something I had never tried.
We also tucked into the hamhock nuggets which were topped with a perfectly poached egg and served with baby potatoes. This was very tasty and I would happily have had it as my main. The ham was that traditional ham that melted in your mouth.
For mains I went for the scallops. What can I say I was in a fishy mood!
I opted for a glass of vino with my main so I went for a crisp chardonnay perfectly chilled which went down a treat.
The cod which smelt delicious as soon as it came out to the table, you could almost taste it. Served with roasted tomatoes and gnocchi.
Now for something to comfort your sweet tooth.We ordered this chocolatey gooey goodness.

And I was not leaving without trying the Creme Brulee. I loved how it was presented and it demonstrated that someone in the kitchen was thinking outside of the box.Served with a perfectly caramelized topping to crack my way through!

You have to work for your supper as they say! I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner and I will definitely be back to dine again. Check it out here
