The Winding Stair
Looking for a nice restaurant in a city centre or Northside location? You absolutely CANNOT go wrong with the Winding Stair.
How picturesque is the Georgian building where its located, overlooking the Liffey. Right beside the Ha'penny bridge - which you get a lovely view of from inside the restaurant.
Hence its name :-)
I started with the whiskey cured salmon, char-grilled cucumber and cucumber ketchup, sea beet, dill and Goatsbridge Farm trout caviar. The flavour combination was incredible!
And then this masterpiece!
Cider braised McLoughlin’s pork cheeks, black pudding scotch egg, grilled baby leeks and crushed swede. The black pudding scotch egg was something special I tell you.
A glass of malbec rounded it all out. I'll definitely be back here. And soon I hope! That scotch egg is calling me :-)
