WINGS! WINGS! WINGS!
We were told that Elephant & Castle had the BEST wings in all of Ireland and we just had to find out for ourselves…. Coming from the US, I did not expect much when ordering the chicken wing basket. I mean, how good could chicken wings be in Dublin? Probably just okay, right? Nope! These might be some of the best wings I’ve ever had. I stand by my statement.
The wings themselves are small (not a bad thing), they are perfectly fried and crispy (because nobody likes soggy chicken wings) and the sauce is distributed evenly and downright addicting. They must use loads of butter but I am not complaining – nobody orders wings as a healthy option anyway. The sauce is rich and just the right amount of spicy.
My dining companions both ordered the roasted garlic burger and let me have a couple bites. This is a great choice for garlic lovers; not only does it have whole roasted garlic cloves but garlic butter and garlic aioli as well! Really solid choice.
Not only was the food phenomenal but the service was impeccable. We were promptly seated, our server was very friendly and she even gave us some local insight on spots to hit that were less touristy than Temple Bar.
Overall: Great Food + Cute Spot + Awesome Service + Reasonably Priced
