MacDaddy, which has just opened in Temple Bar, offers people a casual comfort food eatery which looks to be aimed at those in need of a food hug... or coma.

You know all those really tasty ingredients that you're probably supposed to eat sparingly? From the outside, it looks like loads of those are involved.

Mac & Cheese is a key component of the menu, with many different varieties on offer but it also offers sandwiches, fried chicken and other things.

MacDaddy is the brainchild of Doughboys creator Joey Somers, which saw a recent expansion plan foiled by the Covid-19 pandemic, causing one of the premises to shut.

"Unfortunately, like all hospitality businesses, Doughboys was badly hit by the Covid pandemic," Somers said.

"The Temple Bar premises had to close on 14 March, 2020 and has remained shut ever since. Rather than lose the premises, I decided to develop MacDaddy, a casual comfort food eatery in the heart of Dublin."

As for this claim of the "carbiest comfort food in the city", well... we'll be the judge of that.
