Soda & Starch

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Very many food lovers will recall Ray Moran as the brilliant chef whose cooking put Harry’s Restaurant, at Bridgend, just outside Derry, on the culinary map a decade ago. After several years working on different projects, Mr Moran is back at the stoves as chef-patron in Soda & Starch, a handsome room in Derry’s pretty craft village, just off Shipquay Street, in the centre of the city. The same finely calibrated, lip-smackin’ cooking that inspired people to drive to Harry’s is back on the menu: seafood cocktail with crab chutney; confit duck with salt-baked celeriac; tagine of lamb rump with salsa verde; smoked shin beef burger. Mr Moran is firing out terrifically tasty grub, and value for money is fantastic.
