Aroi Artisan Street Food, the recently opened restaurant at No. 1 O’Connell Street offers a taste of Asian street food reminiscent of that served on the bustling city streets of Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Malaysian chef Eddie Ong Chok Fong and his wife Jenny chose Limerick to open their restaurant because as Eddie says “Limerick people are so well travelled and are very adventurous when it comes to food, many have been to Asia so now I want to bring the taste of Asia to them.”

Eddie has worked in hotel kitchens across the world in Toronto, Melbourne, Singapore and now he is bringing all that expertise to his own restaurant serving the same authentic street food he grew up with and helped his mother and grandmother prepare.

Aroi’s menu offers a range of dishes, including delicious Thai curries, aromatic stir fries and my personal favourite Pad Thai, a dish of rice noodles, prawns, dried shrimp, tofu, egg, peanuts, bean-sprouts and lime; don’t forget to try their amazing ice creams at the end of your meal. The most expensive dishes on Aroi’s menu are €10, so not only are you eating scrumptious memorable flavoursome food, you are getting great value for your money too.

 

 

Aroi Artisan Street Food is open seven days a week, from 12pm until 10.30pm. More information at 061-311411 or at www.aroi.eu.
