Wokabout

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

We don’t know how Henry Hegarty, from Bantry town in West Cork, came to understand Thai and Vietnamese foods so instinctively, so comprehensively. But Henry does indeed understand just how to make that perfect Panang, how to expertly fashion that delicious Vietnamese beef stew with star anise, how to get the oomph! into that crunchy peanut chicken stir fry, or a lovely Massaman, or a stop-you-in-your-tracks beef with shrimp paste stir fry. Wokabout leaves all other Thai street food vendors in the shade.

Henry knows his customers, too. He knows that his customers in Kilkenny prefer noodles, whereas in Bantry, he’ll hardly be able to make enough rice to keep up with the demand. This is the secret of Henry’s Wokabout - he works really hard, travelling the country to various festivals and events, and his customer base is building all the time, as more and more people come to know that Wokabout is where you get the real thing. His base is building with people who taste his cooking and say, hold on! this is the best Asian street food van we know of. People come back time and again because not only do they love the rich curries and casseroles, but also because Henry also serves lovely salads on the sides, as well as dipping sauces, and the most addictive charred chilli pickle. Wokabout is wow!
