How this passed me by, I’ll never know, though then again I don’t live in Dublin. If you do, however, get yourself to Wicklow Street and to the Tayto pop up shop that’s open from today for ten days.

We’d just left Cornucopia after breakfast, musing about getting some early Murphy’s Icecream when we happened upon the Tayto shop, not quite open but the doors do open today and will run for the next ten days, ending (for now anyway) on 15 March. Following the opening of a crisp shop in Belfast, I wouldn’t be surprised if it stuck around beyond the 15th.

As you’ll see from the hazy through-the-window shot about, crisp sandwiches are very much on the agenda with the Cheese & Onion Classic, Salt & Vinegar Sarnie, Smokey Bacon Buttie and Prawn Cocktail Treat all on the menu for just €2, with €1 of that going back to the Dublin Simon Community.

If you’ve never tried a Tayto sandwich before (or even tried your hand at making one), you’ve been missing out. Make amends now if you’re in Dublin city over the next ten days.
