Nook Cafe & Restaurant
You need to get there early if you want a seat at The Nook, Eithna Reynold’s little room in little Collooney. We’ve never seen a space fill up so fast, proof of the fine reputation Ms Reynolds has won for her food, and proof that people will travel any distance for proper, creative, smart food. Part of the secret of her success is to layer a dish so that there are mouth thrills from beginning to end: she will serve the fab pork from Andarl Farm in a burger, with the sweetness of the meat offset by cool daikon radish, hot sriracha, and vinegary pickles, making for joy from first bite to last. The sourcing features a champion’s league parade of the best of the west, and it makes for tactile, lush eating: Korean fried chicken with gochujang mayo; smoked chicken salad with Green Goddess dressing; beef brisket with Dozio’s cheese; bao buns with pork belly and miso yuzu dressing.
