The best dishes at this year's Taste Of Dublin have been revealed

The best of the best.

With Taste of Dublin in full swing, loads of foodies are descending on the Iveagh Gardens to feast on the best grub the country has to offer.


Running from June 15-18, the food festival features some of the best chefs, restaurants and innovators in Ireland.

As the festival kicked off, the winners of the Best in Taste Awards were announced by Compass Ireland.

Six culinary experts were the judges of the best-in-show for various awards categories, including: Best Dish, Best Vegan Dish, Best Restaurant Front of House Dressing, Best Dressed Exhibitor, Best Dressed Feature, Best use of Local & Artisan Producers and lastly, the most Sustainable Event Build.

Shay Kendrick, Culinary Director at Compass Ireland who judged and presented the awards to this year’s winners said:


"We pride ourselves on our commitment to sourcing local ingredients, supporting our nation’s growers, and championing a more sustainable approach to food service.

"I found inspiration in so many of the plates I tasted, we truly have some of the most incredible artisans waving the flag for our unstoppable Irish food scene. Choosing just one team to take home ‘Best in Taste’ was extremely difficult: the quality on-show today was phenomenal."

Winner of the Best Dish category went to The Salt Project, a food trailer which boasts an "informal and relaxed dining experience" based on a "Hyper Local" Irish street food menu.
