Take everything you’d think of for an adult arcade, add in a bar, and emblazon it in Irish green and you have Dublin Calling (@dublincallingcan). It’s one thing to have restaurant quality food, two bar counters, and enough screens to keep your eyeballs fixed on every sports game. It’s another thing to be spacious enough to host ping pong tables, billiard boards, a foosball table, dart ranges, an arcade corner, and EVERYTHING LABELLED AND LOGO’ED. Yep, this is a fun place.
Fish and chips, Irish nachos, buttered popcorn, shepherd’s pie bites, and of course, hamburgers lined up the night. What classifies bar food as restaurant quality is in the style of the burger – the staple entrée to go with any drink. Embellishment show style and creativity, but the patty makes the burger. An advanced meatball, a perfect burger patty carries all the fattiness and tenderness that absorbs all the alcohol. Here, satisfaction and joy meet the first bite. Opening the burger and seeing the slight pink medium-well interior shows meaty compassion. The hardest part after holding a burger is finishing it, but when there’s a game to be played, competition does not wait! .
Thanks to Kylie of Carine Redmond (@carineredmond) for the introduction! Though the games of darts and billiards went to Alex (@materialysm), victory was sweet at the ping pong tables!
