I found myself with my dad in Dublin for the Holiday Show at the RDS, so we decided to spoil ourselves with a Saturday lunch at Asador located at Haddington Road, Dublin 4. Asador is a BBQ restaurant which is located in a modern brick building on a corner not to far from the Grand canal. From the moment you walk in and you are shown to your table, you are immersed in a professional service. The interior is pleasant, one where White and brown colours dominate the stylish interior and leather seats and benches provide a comfortable seating arrangement. While seated, you can admire the chefs being busy in the open kitchen BBQing above the open flames. A sign above the kitchen displays the different sizes and types of beef available, and we can't but admire the chart with the different steaks available, some ranging up to 31oz if you are feeling hungry enough to finish one of these monsters.
The weekend lunch menu which is available from 12pm to 3pm, is a 2 course menu at a cost of €22.95. As I starter, i selected the beetroot and tart tatin, bluebell falls goat cheese with walnuts and aged balsamic where my dad selected the halibut ceviche with avocado mousse and ginger bread toast. While we were waiting for our starters to arrive, we got a plate with different types of bread accompanied by a dip. When both starters came out from the kitchen, we were happy to find 2 colourful plates with fabulous tasting food.
For the main course, I decided to go for the baby back ribs with Jack Daniel's sticky sauce, chargrilled corn on the cob and chips where my dad selected the 8 Oz dry aged Picanha seved with onion in the peel and chips. Both were fabulous, I especially loved the ribs which turned out to be a very generous portion with extra sauce if needed.
The fabulous food with the professional service makes Asador the perfect location to eat beautiful BBQ'd meat (or fish if you prefer). The weekend menu at €22.95 is great value for the quality of the food served. Highly recommended.
