Grub In Dublin Taps Into Environmental Focus PDF Print E-mail

A new environmentally friendly coffee and food outlet called Grub is up and running on George’s Street in Dublin, employing ten people full and part-time.

The idea for Grub began when Colm O’Hare, having worked in the food service business for many years, saw a gap in the market for a food outlet with an environmentally friendly focus.

It serves only hand-roasted, fairly traded, ethically sourced coffee, as well as ethically sourced teas and hot chocolate, and a wide range of bagels sourced from New York.

It also has an extensive chai menu, offering six different types of this increasingly popular alternative to coffee.

Rather than having a set menu, Grub chefs make dishes daily using the best seasonal foods.

As well as sandwiches and wraps, they cook up soups, chowders, jambalaya, stews, curries and noodle dishes – already Grub’s noodle dishes have achieved top ratings on review websites, and the Irish Independent has called it ‘Dublin’s Soup Kings’.

O’Hare, who co-founded the business three months ago, said: “All of the dishes are made using ingredients sourced from local producers and artisan Irish suppliers. The New York bagels are the only products not sourced locally, but the best bagels in the world come from New York.”
