The Food Depot
The Food Depot is no ordinary food cart. It’s a Wow! food cart, is what it is. ‘Wow!’ said our young lad, P.J., as he took his first bite of Diana Dodog’s coconut, squash and chickpea curry. He was sitting on a bench, on the beach, in Courtmacsherry, in deepest West Cork, beside the food cart – The Food Depot – run by Diana and her husband, Mike. “Wow!” he said again as he took a second bite.
With Wow! cooking as fine as this, you don’t need a restaurant. You just need Diana and Mike’s ‘gourmet street kitchen’, an appetite – preferably one worked up by a long walk on the beach – and an appreciation of how great cooks cook great food anywhere. Ms Dodog is famous because she won Masterchef a few years back, but her fame lies with her inspired cooking: ginger, sesame, lemon and pork noodle broth; autumn vegetable and mozzarella quesadillas; triple lentil dal with basmati rice; beef and Hungarian chorizo stew. “Wow!” is right. The Food depot deals in divine culinary delights.
