    Boojum went rapidly downhill a few years ago. Doesn't stop people lapping it up.

    Newman: I'm thinking.
    Gerard: Well, think me up a cup of coffee and a chocolate doughnut with some of those little sprinkles on top, while you're thinking.

    Boojum was far from the first Buritto spot! The epicurean food hall started it off in the early 2000s with Taco Taco (I think it was called) then Saburritos in the same spot mid 2000s.

    Burritos peaked about 5 years ago with Boojum, Little Ass, Pablo etc.. following on but ince then its been all burger places opening ...Counter, Bunsen, Box, Wow, Jo, Five Guys etc..




  • What happens is passing one of the shop for the first time: think they look interesting one has got a ferrero rocher inside and maybe that rhubarb and bacon one would be interesting, buy a few and realise that are actuley a bit sickening and you never buy another one.




  • 6 Years ago there were milkshake shops all over the place. Didn't last too long, for the same reason these won't. People will get tired of'em and won't pay over the odds for some soft sugary bread.




  • A few of the one's that opened in Cork are beginning to close!




  • What we need to do is predict the next trend. That's where the money is. How about....Cornish pasties. Pasties as far as the eye can see.

    I'm told I do a nice pastilla (that's pigeon pie to you). Although I be having to use chicken instead of pigeon meat, as I can never source some good-quality pigeon meat when I need to...

    A good pastilla is a heavenly dish!!

    I can get you pigeon.

    We can use the leftover pigeon bits for the next next craze, pigeonnuts

    Deal!

    Get in touch when you are setting up the kitchen, so. (Hopefully you do have some experience with managing restaurants, yes?)

    :D

    No kitchen needed, street sourced meat cooked and served on the street.

    not enough potato in them for the cork folk.




  • Aungier Danger too.....the queues outside their newly opened shop for a free donut was sad. I do love donuts but not for 3euro.




  • I much prefer the old jam donut with sugar on top to all the ones with crazy toppings

    Before donuts, there was cupcakes! that fad seems to be almost gone thank God. Hated those cupcakes with the syntethic icing, what was wring with an aul fairy cake.

  • If you're ever of a mind to watch a movie about donuts then one of the better ones is The Doughnuts

    Yeh. When can we get a proper American diner




  • Happy to see it. Makes a change from the self-absorbed self-improvement and physique-concerned food culture of the 2010s. Long live the carefree days of the 90s and 2000s when nobody was informed on nutrition because the Internet didn't get that big until 2008.

    Jesus. Everybody thinks the internet didn’t get big until they started using it.




  • the police love doughnuts




  • Doughnuts are great. I fail to see the problem.




  • Load of these shops have popped up in cork city.
    Tbh the doughnuts look awful. But then I don't eat doughnuts so maybe there's no appeal for me.

    Well in Ireland wiress broadband became common in 2008. In 2006 and 2007 many had broadband through a wire to their desktop but 2008 was when wireless broadband became common. The internet was not used for hours a day like it is now before wireless broadband. In the days of dial-up download speeds were slow for most people and most people were worried about running up big bills so they limited internet usage. Broadband came to Ireland in 2003 but had low take-up until prices dropped. In 2000, 2001 internet usage per person per day was still very low from what I recall.

    You beat me to it! This exact post was what I signed in to write. The ganky hyper sweet icing, all looks and no taste at all, the idea of a grown up actually wanting to eat anything that sickly without it being made trendy first...all they ever did was make me miss my Nana's fresh baked buns.

    I'm away from home so I'm missing this fad but I'm assuming it went something like: someone realised that if you take a sugar and flour recipe, put something pretentious in the ingredients and make it look fancy, you can charge people through the nose for it and they'll be picking the crumbs out of their neckbeards and check shirts for ages. Then loads of copycats come along until the whole of Dublin looks like Springfield after homer gives away the recipe for flaming Moe's, then they start to close and soon everyone wonders how they ever paid a fiver for one of those.

    I'm as guilty as anyone by the way, huge fan of the dublin burrito scene before I moved away.

    As for the next fad, there is already a Cornish pasty place in Temple bar, used to be where little ass is now, but there's huge room for pretentious expansion of that.

    My guess is, for desserts, churros: same ingredients as doughnuts (so plenty of mark up room) but with a hint of Europeanness and the option to put chili and chocolate together...

    For mains...I'm thinking they'll ruin something like Irish stew or bacon and cabbage next.

    Regarding American culture, someone mentioned diners, I fully agree. More especially, I'd like to see a place that specialises in American sandwiches, like Philly cheese, Italian beef, French dip, poboys, etc.

    Not a hipster place, just a place that does some of these well without charging an arm and a leg, as is the case in America. If we're going to get America fat, we may do it right.

  • When will they come up with a trendy sugary snack that is made up of chocolate n seagull bits . Just getting rid of a large swat of annoying squawking birds and shoveling it into American accent irish birds gobs. Preferably till they choke on their turd helping while giving out to their other half that they need to start some other costly annual slim/quick /syn diet trend. thus killing two birds by adding another few stone.

    Anyone for a junkie pot pie? Some kinda Sweeny todd like situation except all the rancid meat gets grinded up and fed to drug dealers in prison. That way they can literally feed off peoples misery.

    Vote me to make sanity great again.
