We’re an island nation that doesn’t quite eat as much seafood as we should. One thing we do have in plentiful supply on our shores are mussels. Steam those babies in some white wine and cream, serve with soda bread, and you’ve got a lovely snack on your hands. There’s a few Dublin pubs selling them prepared in exactly this fashion, and here they are…


1. Oscars


Oscars mussels are steamed in a saffron, garlic, and white wine sauce for €9. Add chips for a further €3.

The Church have an excellent seafood selection on their extensive menu, and the creamy mussels adhere to their high standard for food.
