You’ll enjoy complimentary talks while natural Oysters cost only €2, or dressed Oysters cost €2.50.

Your evening will begin at SOLE Seafood & Grill on South William Street, where you will enjoy a selection of Irish Oysters while learning the difference between the rock and native oysters from around Ireland’s coast.

You will then head to FIRE Restaurant and Lounge on Dawson Street, where you will enjoy a 10oz Dexter Sirloin, an exclusive cut of beef for the Food and Drink festival, expertly cooked to your liking and a selection of sides.

3. Walk Through the Flavours of Asia at Oriental Emporium

Learn more about the Oriental Emporium, with their walk-through tour where you’ll learn about the different Asian ingredients.

During this tour there will also be a mochi-making demonstration by one of their own team members. Mochi is a Japanese mini sticky rice flour cake with a sweet filling. And it’s delicious! Oriental Emporium will go through how to make three different types of mochi: black sesame, peanut and green tea; all with a tasty red bean filling.

Each participant of the tour will receive a goodie bag (subject to availability).
