Órale, the next restaurant partner at the Roe & Co Summer Garden,skilfully combines fresh Irish ingredients with captivating Mexican influences, crafting an array of delectable food truck classics.

Established by Ian Cairns in 2019, this nomadic kitchen embarked on a remarkable journey, initially captivating the hearts of Dublin’s taco enthusiasts before evolving into a haven for Mexican-inspired sharing dishes.

At Roe & Co, Órale’s tasting menu will showcase plenty of Irish and seasonal suppliers and a menu of vibrant, colourful Mexican-inspired dishes that will pair excellently with Roe’s unique and interesting whiskey cocktails. 

Residency dates: Thursday, 6th July to Saturday, 29th July.

August will see Hakkahan take up residency, providing guests with a modern Chinese menu inspiring you to reimagine how delightful Chinese food is, paired with a delicious Roe & Co whiskey cocktail. 

Hakkahan’s literal translation means ‘man from Hakka’ which is the region in China where owner Ryon Wen is from, while Hakkahan’s chef Qiang Liu is from Sichuan Province.  It is a natural progression that they have created a menu dominated by Sichuan dishes with a smattering of influences from elsewhere. Hakkahan places an emphasis on the importance of provenance and works with some of the best Irish suppliers to ensure the consistency of their ingredients and how they can be showcased.

Residency dates: Thursday, 3rd August to Saturday, 26th August.
