Kevin O’Toole is a chef at the top of his game. His cooking in Temple Bar’s Chameleon Restaurant has been on fire for several years now, and several of his dishes – the steamed bao buns with caramelised pork belly and spiced pineapple compote; the beef rendang served with dosa; the crab and hake katsu with tangal sambal, to name just three – are amongst the most inviting and droolsome dishes you can eat in Dublin. Mr O’Toole has spoken of how his ambition is to make eating at Chameleon an “experience where service, food, atmosphere all come together to give the guest a hug.” His skill means he can keep the punchy, street food feel of the cooking to the fore, and it all makes for raucous fun in Chameleon. Feel the love.
